Brain Tumor Diagnosis….

This guy is an amazing talent. I’ve fallen in love with many of his works and if I could afford to buy art, his would definitely be the first I would get. I’m keeping him in my thoughts and will pass this along, hoping those of you who see it will do the same.

Ray Ferrer - Emotion on Canvas

Hi Friends and Fans of Ray! This is his wife, Rhian Ferrer….
Tuesday morning I found Ray in bed having a seizure (he has never had one before) I brought him to the hospital and he is stable but has a massive baseball sized tumor in/on his brain.  He will be undergoing surgeries, radiation and chemo therapy in the upcoming months.  

I have set up a Go Fund Me page for Ray.

Here is the link.

Please share and be sure to check out the links on the page, including the Etsy link where you can get get great art prints of his that will also help contribute!

From the bottom of our hearts, we thank you and our family thanks you. He holds his fans in such high regards and will be updating everyone as things progress.

(Extended) Voting for June is now open!

A couple of weeks ago I posted “Sometimes They Come Back“, a 50 word flash fiction piece for June’s competition. If you thought it was winning material then take a few seconds to vote for me before July 12th! Voting is open to anyone, so all it takes is a click of the button… well, two if you count clicking on the link to get there. 😉

What an interesting month and a heartening response to the 50 word micro fiction prompt.  Who knew you could get such a mix of complete stories, genres and topics in such a restricted word count!  I would like to thank all who took part and think you will agree that there are plenty of strong entries to choose from when it comes to casting your vote.  Remember, voting is open to all whether you entered something into the competition or not and the voting poll is now attached for you to vote for your favourite entry.

In a change from normal procedure, voting will remain open until the 12th of July as I am about to enter a cyber black hole…  As usual however, the winner will then get to set the next writing prompt.  Good luck to all who entered. 🙂

Who will you vote for?  Remember, voting is open to all, so make sure that…

If you can, please take the time to help support one of the writer’s I’ve been fortunate enough to cross paths with. You can check out his Kickstarter campaign here:

The Kickstarter campaign for Champion Standing starts now! Remember, you’re pledging, not donating. If you meet any of the reward thresholds, you will get that reward. Spread the word – If I don’t reach the $1000 goal, I get nothing and the campaign fails.

I mentioned this on Saturday: Escape is pretty much done. I’ll agonize over it for a little while and release it in July at the earliest, August at the latest.

Paradox is free June 13th – 17th on Amazon. I could use some reviews, people!

In other news, fellow author and RPG designer, Todd Van Hooser owns the copyright on some beautiful line art by Joel Cotejar. I wanted it for the cover of Champion Rising. Todd gave his blessing, so I’ve created a rough cover concept for Champion Rising:

Short Story Prompt

Your character is pregnant and in her last trimester. A storm is brewing and she breaks down in front of an old creepy motel. She was on her way out of town for [insert reason here], driving instead of flying because of how late in the pregnancy she is. Tell me her story. Any genre. 

Are we there yet?

I have spent the last month taking all of my "idea" notebooks and copying them onto a new blog. The sad thing is I am still absolutely nowhere near close to being done. But in the end, I think it will be totally worth it. I have everything grouped by main category first (ie: PLOT, PROMPT, … Continue reading Are we there yet?

I’m Selling Myself. In truth, aren’t we all?

Sreejit over at The Seeker's Dungeon posted a very tough question this week. What message is it that you're selling?I think, as bloggers, we are all selling the same thing. Ourselves.We may have very different subject matter lining the pages of our blogs, but the one thing we have in common is the fact that … Continue reading I’m Selling Myself.

Items for Sale

Sooo... I've added a couple of items to my site that I'm hoping will generate at least a small portion of income for me. Course, with the cost of materials and the length of time it takes to make, I'm not profiting very much, lol. However, I like to make them and I especially love … Continue reading Items for Sale

Just a coupla things on my mind

1. Paul Walker - I know this is last weeks news, per say, but still weighs heavily on my mind. It's funny how sometimes you follow an actor or actress so closely that you almost feel as if you know them in reality. They are so often put in the spotlight that a lot of … Continue reading Just a coupla things on my mind
