My Full Book Library—50% Off

I have a Patreon page where some of my fans choose to support me. If they contribute $5.00 a month, I send them every book I ever publish, the second it’s done. It’s pretty good, and usually ends up saving them some money.

There’s just one problem: I have already published many, many books, and my patrons don’t already have them. So if they want to catch up on what I’ve already done, they have to go and spend a lot of money on my back catalog.

May I Have Your Attention Please?

May I Have Your Attention Please?

Good morning, Rebels, and welcome back to my life. May I have your attention, please? If you’re reading this, that means that for these brief moments, these eight hundred words or less, I have your attention. But odds are pretty good I don’t have your undivided attention. Many of you are probably checking your phones while you watch this. Or else you’re checking your computer screens while you read this on your phones. And if you weren’t doing that before, mentioning it makes you about three times more likely to do so. I wonder how much more likely you are to do so when I tell you you’re statistically more likely to do so? I fell like this is a rabbit hole that could lead to madness. So I’ve never told you this before, but I write books for a living. (I’ve told you that before. Too often. You’re probably sick of it). But as much attention as I am able to gain from you to read this blog post — five, ten minutes out of your day, five days a week. Most times. Not most times. Sometimes. Lots of times it’s days or weeks between posts. BUT WHATEVER that time investment you’re willing to give my blogs or YouTube videos … books are a whole ‘nother ball game. Reading a book is a time commitment like no other. And that’s why so many new authors struggle to make it. Why would you invest twelve hours reading a book when you’ve never even heard of the author before? The only reason you might is if someone you trust tells you,...
What Depression Means to Me

What Depression Means to Me

Good morning, Rebels, and welcome back to my life. I’m wearing my serious face today. We lost Robin Williams yesterday, and if this is the first you’ve heard about it, I’m really sorry to be the one who told you. At 63 years, Williams had a fairly long life, and certainly one well-lived. As Kevin Smith would say, a big bucket of win for such incredible accomplishments over the decades. Certainly he had longer on this Earth than many artists who passed before their time. But still, we can’t help but think of all the years he could have had left and what he still could have done. His biggest influence on me personally would have to have been as the Genie in Aladdin, a movie I watched about a gajillion times. But I was also obsessed with Hook, and Mrs. Doubtfire, and … damn, a whole lot of his movies, actually. But I am only one of millions, maybe tens or even hundreds of millions for whom he was a huge influence. From my dad’s generation who identified so closely with Good Morning Vietnam, to the new generation who love him in the Night at the Museum franchise (one of those golden movie series that I can watch with my kids and actually enjoy). From everything we’ve heard so far, Williams took his own life and spent much of his final days battling depression. As always, there’s not much to say about this except, “That fucking sucks.” We don’t know what he was on, if anything, whether it was one of the black-box drugs or something else, or nothing. He, of course, was open...

VLOGANOVEL—Nightblade: Episode Four

Welcome to the VlogaNovel for Nightblade: Episode Four. In the past I’ve posted EACH new VlogaNovel video as its own post on this blog. But that cluttered up the feed and turned a lot of people off. So now I’ll just be posting a single post, and updating it with each new video. The video at the top there is the PLAYLIST, so you can watch everything in sequence there. And as for all the written work, you can find that below. I hope this new format is easier to consume and preferable to the majority of viewers. We’re starting Nightblade: Episode Four! Here we...
