I know what you're thinking..."we've heard this before." Bruce is feeling guilty again about not exposing himself to public consumption (eeww...I didn't mean for that to sound so naughty), so he's found a burst of energy and is back to tell us that he's going to return to blogging, at least on a semi-regular basis. Okay, … Continue reading A Return to Blogging
A long while ago, I did a blog post about my search for a laptop on which to churn out incredible chunks of prose that will one day be considered classics of the fantasy genre (a guy can dream, right?). At the time, the biggest challenge for me was finding the right features that suited … Continue reading Writing Tools
My most recent post over at the Guild of Dreams...can't George leave something for the rest of us? The Trouble With George R.R. Martin.
For those of you who are regular followers of my irregular blog, you are aware that I tend to lean toward writerly subjects. Often you will find me posting about doing promo, or the craft of writing, or my journey along the self-publishing path. Occasionally, I throw in a post about my kids when they … Continue reading Textupidity/Dietribe

Like everyone else, there are events in my life that will stay with me for as long as I live. Some are happy, some sad, some produce feelings and emotions that are impossible to explain. I'll never forget my first date with my wife, our out-of-the-ordinary costume party backyard wedding, the birth of my daughter, … Continue reading The Bittersweet End

I'm going to try out a few different themes to see which I like the best, add some pages, etc., etc. The home page and the other pages I will be … Continue reading How Do You Like Me Now?
It's been a while since the last time I posted (over 2 weeks if you don't count Emily Ward taking things over for a day). "Why?" you might wonder aloud, and rightfully so. "Why would an independent author who relies so much on interaction with people to sell books neglect his blog for an extended … Continue reading These Are The Days Of Miracle And Wonder
In case people have been wondering where I am, I thought I'd put together a quick update so no one would worry (probably not much danger...I don't think my Mom reads my blog). Currently, I am in Las Vegas. It is my wife's profession which brought me here; she is a burlesque performer and this … Continue reading Vegas, Baby!
I shut the door behind me and drag my ass down the hall, the weight of the day and the laptop case heavy on my shoulders.
