Fossil Lake Anthology

Fossil Lake Anthology

Nickolaus Pacione keeps whining and crying that we’re not complete idiots to put our crap on the internet for free to show how much better we are at writing than he is because that’s how you get sale….give all your stuff away for free like he does right?

This book is a bargain anyway!  for $2.99 you get 37, count them THIRTY-SEVEN, examples of writing better than anything Nicky could do in his wildest dreams.  That’s less than 10 cents a story!

That’s the end of my shameless plug for a great Anthology that has a story I wrote included in it!

bad submission guidelines

bad submission guidelines

if you take 30,000 words to write out submission guidelines to your next not so best seller you may want to make sure people can actually figure out WHAT you want after they read them.  That is if they make it through the ugly, unreadable, headache inducing fonts.  Not to mention the numerous errors, offensive language, random rants against your imaginary enemies.  Your brags about how great you think you are.  Lies about what you claim others have said about you.  And just plain idiocy.  Here’s a hint Nicky.   YOU ARE DOING IT WRONG.

Cold Snap

I’m one of the unfortunates in the USA dealing with ungodly cold.  It’s actually warmer at the North Pole than it is here.  Wind chills of 55 or so below are forecast for Monday.  I’m glad I can stay inside reading good stuff like “The Ocean at the End of the Lane” by Neil Gaiman or “NOS4A2” by Joe Hill.  Or even catching up on the pod casts of “welcome to nightvale” that I recently heard about.  They’re quirky, a bit unsettling, and often quite humorous.

Reading the extremely childish, not funny, and quite honestly extremely stupid twitters from Nicky I once again have to ask myself “OMGWTFBBQ was I thinking??????”  My 3 year old cousin is more mature (and has a larger and better vocabulary….seriously the kid uses words like ‘ridiculous’ and seems to understand and use them correctly!) than he ever will..  He’s got the mentality of a 2 year old, needs his mouth washed out with soap, and to be locked up in a mental health facility away from a computer for a very long damn time.

Saw The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug last night.  I enjoyed it more than the first, mostly because of Smaug.  That was by FAR the best looking dragon I’ve ever seen on the movie screen.  I may be a bit prejudiced as I like my dragons evil and greedy and filled with death and fire, but damn they did an awesome job with him.
