A Synopsis of the Realm Keepers Series

A Synopsis of the Realm Keepers Series

Hello Rebel, and welcome back to my life.

Continuing our video series we’ve been doing the last few Fridays, I’m here to give a synopsis of another one of my book series, and today we’re gonna talk about the Realm Keepers series.

The Realm Keepers series was published in 2013 and 2014 and are the only books where I’ve had a co-author. They were written with my oldest friend and the guy who got me into indie publishing in the first place, Zach Bolger, who writes under the pen name of Z.C.

Critical Viewership and the Doctor Strange Film

Critical Viewership and the Doctor Strange Film

Hello Rebel, and welcome back to my life.

So, I didn’t talk about this when it happened, because there’s always so much going on, but I saw Doctor Strange, and I wanted to talk to you about it a little bit.

I won’t give any major spoilers, but if you still haven’t seen it and you don’t want to know ANYTHING about it, you might want to steer clear.

Getting Serious About Having Fun

Getting Serious About Having Fun

For some strange reason, I’ve been pretty good about work recently. I’m hitting deadlines, I’m producing things when I say I’m going to produce them, and I’ve stuck to my YouTube schedule (as you may have noticed). I’ve actually gotten serious about my work—while still having fun doing it.

What Donald Has Done to My Kids

What Donald Has Done to My Kids

Hello Rebel, and welcome back to my life.

It’s a little over a month now since the election, and I don’t know about you, but life’s been pretty different around here.

I’m a person in a place of immense privilege. I don’t have a regular job, I don’t have to worry about confrontations with bosses or coworkers, I don’t even have to worry about extended family if I don’t want to.

But I’ve been trying not to hide behind that privilege. I’ve been trying to be active online with my videos and my Medium articles protesting and speaking out against the horrible things Donald has done even before stepping into office.

Return to Astoria

Return to Astoria

Hello Rebel, and welcome back to my life.

You remember that last week I went to the town of Astoria on Oregon’s northern border. Well, I also mentioned that Astoria was the location for the classic 80’s film The Goonies.

On Thursday my oldest friend Zach came to town, and Zach has been a huge fan of The Goonies for most of his life, so he and I set out for Astoria again without Meghan or the kids, just the two of us.

Thoughts from Borders

Thoughts from Borders

I spent today on the border of Oregon and Washington State, and it made me think things. I recorded some of those thoughts on videos. Like you do. When you have thoughts. From places.

Life is Harder Now.

Life is Harder Now.

We have so much work to do, it’s overwhelming. We have to take breaks when we can, to take care of ourselves, but then we have to remember to put our shoulders back to the wheel. I wish it wasn’t like this. But it is.

The Truth Can Be Known.

The Truth Can Be Known.

Hello Rebel, and welcome back to my life.

I find myself thinking about the truth a lot these days.

I feel like a really terrifying idea has become pervasive in our society, and that’s that the truth is some mysterious thing that we can’t actually know.

We hear about Facebook bubbles where everyone only hears things that agree with what they already believe and fake news stories get picked up and shared and can’t be disproven.
