The Latest — December 2, 2014 at 1:03 pm
In a rolling green valley behind the hills just outside of town, the first cold night of the holiday season awakens rows of beautiful dark green trees from their summertime slumber. Trees of all kind, from cedar and spruce to pine and fir grow in this very special place. Through their stately boughs the long hot summer stillness is ushered away by the cool midnight breeze. Beneath millions of diamond like stars...

The Sins of The Family: Chapters Five and Six

 Chapter Five The Judge and The Accused   Cantu hung up the phone and looked at the man in white through tired eyes. “From what I can tell, Gomez sang a bit, but it could have been much worse. Can you fix it?” asked Cantu. The man in white puffed thoughtfully on his pipe and blew a few smoke...

Exit Planet Dust

So there is some dust around here, links to pages published years ago dripping with the wide-eyed wonderment of an optimistic younger version of myself at the wheel. For a moment I considered deleting them, there is some really sketchy shit contained on those pages, but then I saw them for what they...

The Sins of The Family; Chapter Four: The Calm Before the Storm

Chapter Four The Calm Before the Storm Mattie and Alaric walked from the Cadillac to a large patio bursting with giant green philodendron and the unmistakable fragrance of jasmine.

Today I reached one of the milestones that has been in my sights for a while, sending a portion of #TSOTF to my Beta Readers. I have to admit that it was a bit more stressful than I thought, but once I hit send I realized that along with the first half of the story I also sent something almost as important....

jjdlg vs. The Midnight Thunderbolt

One week has passed since my last update. I must admit the past week has been all I could hope and the situation in which I find myself is in itself quite interesting. One realization I’ve had is that I have to shake off some of the programming picked up in the corporate world. Before I embarked...

jjdlg vs. Day One, confessions of a full time author

I have waited over twenty years to write these words and have them be truth: I am now working full time as an indie author to publish my first of four books. It is a fresh move, Friday August 19, 2011 was the last day of my two week notice at the company I reported to M-F and 9-5 for over 7 years. Those...

The Sins of the Family #TSOF Track One of the #4TrackDemo

Spotify and the second golden age of music discoveries

Back then it was called Napster and it was the shizz. If you hadn’t tried it, you had heard of it, and when you heard about it, you couldn’t believe it. All the music you could ever hope to listen to, for free and there for the taking. Now pirating music is a no-no and I think we all had...
