Happy New Year!

Hey, everyone. Do you know who I am? It’s me, Paul. I know it’s been a while. Been busy and all. But I’m here to turn a new leaf! Actually, I’ve been quite busy. Life. It happens. Anyway, since my last post all those years ago (it really does feel like it’s been years) I’ve finished my zombie trilogy. Unfortunately, I’ve not done much more than that on the novel front. I’ve tapped out a handful of short stories for various anthologies, but no long work to speak of. But I plan to fix that! Part of what pulled me … Read more

My 2013 year in review

What a year, 2013 has been to me and my family. To start off, I registered for a few online writing classes that were a Christmas gift.

I have a ton of story ideas to rol with, but not a single one of them are jumping out at me, saying “WRITE ME!”. I have a few that do keep coming into my mind, but they both need so much plotting work, that I am not sure they will play well in a 30 … Read more

Writing Endeavors

I have been away for a bit for a reason.  It’s called vacation!  The family and I went down to Mexico, Puerto Penasco (a.k.a. Rocky Point) to be exact.  We left DIA on Wednesday, the 13th, for Phoenix.  We over-nighted at the In-Laws house before driving the 4 hours down to their condo on Thursday.  We stayed there until Monday, when we drove back to the oven, otherwise known as Phoenix.  We flew back to DIA on Tuesday.  It was a nice little break from the hectic schedule we all keep.  Sense the sarcasm… Yeah, I know..  How hectic can … Read more
