Flip or Flop or Flap

5th September 2016 by admin No Comments

I spent last night watching an HGTV Show where this couple buys houses in California for hundreds of thousands of dollars and flips them for a profit. Makes me wish they had one of those shows in Kentucky where I live. “We bought the house at auction for fourteen thousand, and we redid the kitchen, […]

The fine folks at Crossroad Press have picked it up, so it’s available at Amazon.com and also their website. If you’ve already picked up the book and left me a review, thank you very much. […]

The Rejection Chronicles: The Forgotten Pile-On

Getting a rejection notice from an agent you had forgotten you sent a query to is like stepping on a mine from the Korean War.

Gig Bagged

8th July 2015 by admin No Comments

Writing gigs this week…12,000 words on high school football…finished. Final score, 1300 Coaching Cliches, 143 players with upside who are great athletes and real leaders, 63 bottles of water, 29 episodes of Gossip Girl watched in the background, and 1 bout with stomach flu. Just to make things more interesting, I also threw in a […]

I’m The Map!

26th January 2015 by admin No Comments

Just out of curiosity, I took this quiz on a website to show how many states in the USA I’ve visited.  Not bad, although ten years ago, it would have been much more sparse. Looking at this, it makes me look forward to the travel book, “I Hate It Here.” Lots of good stories coming in that […]

The Rundown

19th November 2014 by admin No Comments

My morning run was especially exhilarating today! Since it’s 19°, that run was to the bathroom and back to bed. Which is the most rewarding exercise I’ve had in a while.

Low Society

9th November 2014 by admin No Comments

Since I don’t really know anyone in Cincinnati, I joined a county-wide Facebook group. After one week of listening to them, I’ve decided that instead of cheering for the Reds or Bengals, I’m just going to root for meth lab explosions.

Sixteen Candles of Sexual Dysfunction

Watched “Sixteen Candles” the other night, only to find it’s a bit more date-rapey than I remember.

100 Words: The Gentle Ballad of the Local News Anchor

2nd April 2014 by admin No Comments

She’s famous. Everyone knows her. She’s on your television every night, smiling and reading you the daily news. It’s a burden being famous. That’s why she’s comes here to this cafe and sits outside afternoons. She’ll smile and be feaux-bashful about being recognized, but that’s her job. She hates the publicity, though. So why isn’t […]
