The future I still dream

When I was in fourth grade, way back in 1987, My family and I took a trip to Florida. While there, we visited Kennedy Space Center. We always stopped and checked out sites of historical significance while traveling, and I was absolutely thrilled to finally be visiting this one, which I’d read so much about.

Faceborg is really messing with me

Every time I place a sponsored ad for one of my books on Facebook, and it gets a decent response, Faceborg threatens to delete my account and my author page.

Groundswell

Groundswell began as a short story and grew into a novella. I suppose it even qualifies as a novel, but that’s neither here nor there. I cranked this baby out over the summer, posting each chapter online as I finished it. I “pantsed” it, as they say. Freestyled it.
