Re-Cover-Y (Part 3)

Today, our trip down Bruce's cover version of memory lane comes to its inevitable conclusion. In case you missed it, the mini-series started off with Re-Cover-Y part one and a look at the evolution of the covers of On Unfaithful Wings and All Who Wander Are Lost, the first two books in my Icarus Fell … Continue reading Re-Cover-Y (Part 3)

Re-Cover-Y (Part 2)

I suppose the easiest way to do this is to take things in order. Since we began with Icarus, that makes Khirro the next in line. The circumstances behind the change to Khirro's covers are completely different than the impetus behind the Icarus Fell series change.

Re-Cover-Y (Part 1)

Not Carrie's finest hour After a Facebook post made by a fellow author in which she lambasted the silly cover someone put on Stephen King's Carrie, I began pondering how books--especially bestsellers that stay on the market for a long time (Carrie is 47 years old now, dontcha know)--go through many iterations of covers.

If everything had gone according to my grand design, I'd be sitting on a beach, sunglasses on to shield against the sun's glare off the screen of my laptop, a … Continue reading How Not to be a Successful Author

Thinking About EVH

It is Monday, Oct. 12, 2020 as I write this (Happy Thanksgiving, Canadians). It's been six days since lung cancer stole a legendary guitar player from the world...Eddie Van Halen. There are so many words available to describe the man and his work...genius, luminary, ground-breaking, enormous, mind-boggling...feel free to add your own descriptions in the … Continue reading Thinking About EVH

This World We’re Living In

Advance warning: this is my first post since the outbreak of the novel coronavirus, so things might get a bit heavy. Let's start off with some positive things that have come from this pandemic. I belong to a Facebook support group for my community that offers help to people in need. It has over 10,000 … Continue reading This World We’re Living In

Midlife Crisis: The Beginning Part 2…KISS

You wanted the best, you got the best. The hottest band in the world...KISS!! In my first Midlife Crisis - The Beginning post, I talked about how one of the decisions I've made in the throes of this aging thang is to see concerts. The majority of shows I've seen and plan to see are … Continue reading Midlife Crisis: The Beginning Part 2…KISS
