My Horror Adventure and why I love to be scared. Well, I DID have a plan this week. I swear I did, but that one will take research. Then I kind of got knocked on my ass yesterday, but I don’t want to keep going, “Hey guys, feeling like shit. Bye.” So I’ll actually make a point this time. I love Horror. I love horror … Continue reading Monsters, Demons and Depression
Shit… I agreed to keep doing this. I should really make a schedule… and drafts… I think I had a great idea for a blog and then I went to bed… and -poof- gone. I will admit to one thing. I’ve begun a project. Something I hope to continue through to publishing. That is all… I think I’ve finally gotten I’m eating Tostitos with Hummus. … Continue reading Mid March Update
Because I like to break it! Oh shit, I guess I still agreed to do this weekly. This week was better, mostly because I kept busy with the Manitoban.

So here goes my first blog, because I really don’t know what else to do. On January 28th, 2018, I finished my second full manuscript, a first draft of what I hope will be a really dark, brutal, neo-noir story where a girl tries to overcome her own limitations, but also involving a gang war between Vampire Aristocrats and Goblin Gangsters.
