This blog is a an exposition of the odds and ends speculative fiction I write. There is no particular rhyme or reason behind it, other than just putting it out there. The site is a work in progress, but I will do my best to keep it running smoothly. I hope you enjoy this stuff as much as I enjoy creating it.
What do I write?
The short answer is speculative fiction, primarily. The longer answer is that a write whatever occurs to me as interesting, which mostly encompasses unusual, weird, scary, nerdy or bizarre. If you find this is a poor or unhelpful description of my work, you are probably correct and have my apologies. If it is any consolation, I will have a category for anything I post up; I think it is only fair you know what you are getting into.
What not to expect?
In general, I have certain limits on what lines I will cross. I do not get overly descriptive about graphic sex, violence or traditionally sensitive material. There is violence, sex and traditionally sensitive material in my stories; these things are included as I feel them necessary, to the degree I feel them necessary. Usually, the “fade to black” approach is best; in fact, I find no reason to include details relating to anything that will not improve the story.
On a lighter note, I should mention that most of what I will post has only been roughly edited. I love to write but find editing a bit of a chore. You can expect spelling and grammar will be in decent order. The story should be rock solid for continuity, characters and such.
Finally, do not expect my stories to necessarily jump right into the action, desperately trying to hook you in a few pages or less. This is usually the push in our day and age; however, I prefer to write in a way that works for me. This means I may or may not jump in right away.
Why a blog?
It was an easy choice to get some visibility for my work. There are a great many sites, including blogs, providing free stories. Competition galore! If nothing else, I hope to provide some entertainment for the reader. My goal is to let the work succeed or fail on its own merits. Feedback is always welcome, good or bad.
How often will I post material? How much will there be?
These are great questions for which I have no sure answers. The goal is to post new material roughly two or three times per month; that said, it is a goal. I will push to stick to this schedule, holidays notwithstanding. The length of each post will also vary. My aim is to post up enough to keep you wanting more.
