Reminder: I’m Totally on a Deadline

I’ve seen some grousing about the relative lack of content here this month, so I’d like to remind folks I have a book deadline and pay copy has to take a precedence to writing here, for reasons which should be obvious but if not are related to me eating and having a roof over my head. Don’t worry, after the novel has been turned in and I’ve slept for, oh, three days straight, I’ll probably be back to my usual chatty self.

In the meantime, enjoy the pictures. They’re pretty. And that’s not nothing.

Being on a variety of deadlines myself, I have been enjoying the pretty pictures. I do look forward to more chattiness in the future as it will also mean that another book is imminent.

People are seriously grousing about… When they don’t even pay… What are they… GYAH!

I can’t even articulate how gobsmacked (I’ve always wanted an excuse to use that word!) I feel. It would take every single Picard-facepalm on the internet to express it.

Look grousers, when you are paying the man to post content, then you can complain. That simple enough?

Entitled asshats are always slightly more vocal than the rest. Most of us readers understand you gotta do what you gotta do. We’re happy to even have you as often as we do.

After all, you’re not our bitch.

Much love,


Give me your undivided attention! I demand books every 6 months and 1500 words a day on this blog. No excuses! I paid for it … Wait, wait. No, I did not pay for this blog. Shit. Well, as you were sir. Pardon the interruption.

Wow, I can’t believe anyone is grousing! You warned us pretty clearly that you had a book to write and that content would be sparse. There’s only 24 hours in a day, and some of them you need to spend with your wonderful family. (oh, and sleep, I guess.)

I appreciate the pictures very much, even if I scarcely comment. And I appreciate your books very much, which….wait for it…..

require you to take time away from this blog to write them.

No grousing from me…just best wishes on how well this next book will sell.

Honestly, re-think your whole approach to existance if you think whiners like that are worth a post. Write what you want, when you want. Sell it or give it away. Lots of people are forced to do things to live. You are totaly free, so every time you act like a slave to your fans the rest of us die a little. (No pressure, of course)
