In the pipeline – Writing

With Burning Memory and Coasting released on both Amazon and Smashwords, it’s time to review what’s on the table at the moment. It’s been an interesting month, and at times quite a busy one. Five projects active. Vultures, The Thin Blue Line, two short stories. And the trilogy of The Triptych Study novels.

Letters – Shut up and serve


thanks for rubbing it in. I’ll agree I should have given trading assignments a second thought. Too bad you’re having a shitty day, and are bored with boring people. You’re there to do a job though, so do it. It doesn’t matter how you feel about it, what matters is that it gets done. And really, use that brain of yours. If your gut tells you something, there’s likely a damn good reason for you to be there. Me, I’d have hired some netkid to give me summaries and spent the rest of the time at a bar, oblivious to what I agree with is quite an intruiging observation of yours.

I understand now why you were so keen on trading assignments, I should have known I guess.
