Carthage, Illinois
As a lot of you know, I grew up in the “real” Carthage, Illinois, the same small mid-western town where Small Things and Thread were set, albeit (mostly!) without murderous little monsters and other magical beings. It was a blast driving around town with my 12-year-old son pointing […]

Grammar can be finicky, tough, annoying, amazing, and illuminating. It can make or break a writer or editor. Good grammar is what sets good writers and editors apart from poor or unmotivated writers and editors. The plot idea, characters, setting, and motif can jump off the […]

I’m working on a collection of short stories and novellas tentatively scheduled for May release. The stories are going well, and will include a Small Things novella set in between the events of Small Things and Threads. However, I still haven’t completely decided on a title […]
I haven’t updated the blog since November 21st and haven’t been marketing my novels, and sales have suffered as a result. I’ve just been frustrated with the marketing aspect of writing. It’s always push, push, push Williams, (points if you get that reference) with very little […]
Are writing source books really helpful? Other than making the writer of said source material money, I’m not so sure. In my experience, few are worth the price, but a couple do stand out for me: Writer’s Guide to Places, by Don Prues and Jack Heffron, […]
Every novel I’ve written has started as a NaNoWriMo (National November Writing Month) project, but this November I decided to do something a little different. Instead of writing a novel I’m writing a collection of short stories, one of which will bridge the gap between Small […]
This year will be my tenth anniversary participating in National November Writing Month – NaNoWriMo, for short. And while I haven’t always been successful (writing 50,000 words within the month of November is the goal) both Small Things and Threads have come from NaNoWriMo “wins.” I’m […]
Threads, the second book in the Small Things trilogy, has officially been released! I worked very hard to make sure that Threads was a stand-alone novel insomuch as I could, so having read Small Things, while helpful, is not necessary in order to read Threads. So […]

Several weeks ago, I posted a survey to my Facebook fan page asking if folks would be interested in pre-ordering Small Things II: Threads. 45% of the respondents said yes, 35% said maybe, and 20% said no. My job, of course, is to sway those “Maybe” […]
So my son, a fifth grader, is going on an overnight school field trip to ONSC (Ozark Natural Science Center) tomorrow. While there, he’ll perform various science experiments and learn more about nature from the ONSC guides. It’s a great experience, from what I’ve heard, and […]
Writing comes fairly easy for me, at least most days. Editing, however, is the hard part. Every little word is precious, almost like a child, and when you have to delete who rows of them, it’s like losing… okay, it’s nowhere near as bad as losing […]

NcSoft announced August 31st, 2012, (on my birthday, no less!) that they were shutting down popular super-hero based MMORPG City of Heroes. Sure, it’s one of the older MMOs out there (started in 2004) but, darn it, it’s MY MMO! I’ve been playing since 2008, and […]

After finally reading the much-talked-about Fight Club, with which I was disappointed, I swore I’d never read another Chuck Palahniuk book. I’m glad I didn’t keep that promise. Damned is actually, well, damned good! This novel follows the exploits of 13-year-old Madison Spencer’s trip to hell […]
