I’m taking a public leap.

Up at the top, you might notice there’s a new tab, “Aen.”

I’ve been writing a book. It’s still very much a work in progress, and I’m still a fair way from completion. But I’m also a lot farther along that I imagined I would be at this point. I’ve got about 80,000 – 90,000 words written (depending on whether a particular story line makes the cut), with another 30,000 to 40,000 left to write.

I’ve decided to post a few sample chapters (just the one to start with) and solicit feedback. Comments on the sample chapter are open and I look forward to hearing whatever you have to say. Even if you don’t like it!

I’m also looking for interested readers. If you’re interested in reading the rest, I’d be very happy for feedback on the entirety of the project! But I am definitely look for feedback. So, let me know if you’re interested!

The prologue, The Living Sight is the first chapter up.


I got nuthin.

Total creative nosedive. For the last several weeks I’ve had nuthin.

Big bags of nuthin.

All manner of writing has stalled. Especially the big fiction projects.

I’ve got characters on the run from the law, stuck outside a carnival, moping in Japan, flirting in the Yucatan, bickering in Los Angeles, and even one or two that are struggling with freaking magic rings. And they’re all on pause.

The DVR in my brain needs a reboot.
