Enjoy a quick read about two old ladies fighting & a man's 90th birthday surprise.
But it sure is a lot to me!

You're already getting the free story in 2014, but I've challenged my self as a sort of early New Year's Resolution.
May I ask you for just a few clicks?
Admittedly, this site is somewhat still in the works.
I'm tweaking things as it goes, especially with the mobile site, but I'm confident everything on the site will be ready to go soon.
As with earlier editions of the websites (as some of you may remember), it starts off with an awkward clinical feel, but then becomes a media mad house.
But hey, there's been over 9,000 visitors since I made the first announcement about the site today. Not too shabby. Thanks, guys!
Now I just want to know what you think about the site.
[Take the survey & I'll send you a free copy of a story from Ashalnd's Asylum before it's out in 2014!]
Many apologies for the delay lately. I figured I could handle the workload of this brand-spankin' new site, but apparently my ego was writing checks my skill set couldn't cash.
Recently Neil Gaiman, most famous for his book & animated film Coraline, explored the importance of reading. His focus was how we estimated the number of prison and jail cells we will need in the future. He concluded that the formula was quite simple: figure out how many 11-year-olds were illiterate.
My natural disposition is to jump ahead of the present and continue towards the future. I have this terrific rock band I've been working with, some brand-new novels and short stories on the well, future blog hops, interview, etc. Things are good. But that's only now.
For awhile I had to take a little hiatus and get myself back together. For the first, I experience a shortage in the good ol' noggin', or an anxiety attack. A close friend of mine suggested it might be worth writing about, so here we are. If you've had a similiar experience yourself, make sure to check it out. If not, maybe it's worth exploring for the sake of understanding.
I'm finally back at it. In the next blog entry, I'll explain a little bit more about my recent hiatus, but for now all I want to talk about is what's to come. Since I've had a bit of time to myself, I reviewed No-Injury Policy and decided I had to follow the short story collection up somehow, or at least the end-tale.
With that in mind, I'm working on a novel in stories called Ashland's Asylum, which takes place almost twenty years after the end of "No-Injury Policy."
Find out about my new book and more in the newest entry in The Forbidden Blog. Also make sure to check around the site periodically, as things are getting better.

Lately there's been a major buzz about print publications, copyright infringement, our education rate, and what role literature will have in the future. Luckily, it seems many people are acting out to insure a better tomorrow. The times have changed, so have publishers, news sources, print and digital technologies, as well as our educational systems. All of these things combined show three signs of hope for the future.
Sorry for the wait, but here's Part V of "Lucky Shot," a story from the lost archives.
