Stories, More Diving, and a Half-Off Sale

I get busy, and I forget to update you folks, and then all of the news piles up into a big…news pile. (Okay, you know what I mean.) Let’s go by deadline. First, WMG Publishing is holding a half-off online workshops sale. We did this when COVID started to encourage people to stay in and learn. We hoped it would be a one-shot. It wasn’t. […]

Business Musings: Time and Licensing (Licensing/Contracts)

I’ve spent much of the past week on licensing for my Diving Universe. Some of this is because of the Kickstarter we’re running right now.

Visions of the Future

About a week ago, I got cheeky on Facebook, and said that figured the slogan for 2020 was What Fresh Hell Is This?

When I’m tired and can read, I want to read stories that go “bang”! Lots of explosions or ticking clocks. Lots of tension. Set anywhere, but I’m particularly partial to space.
