Current Mischief – May 9th, 2016

Just saw the proof copy of Enigma Front: Burnt containing my next published story Hot Blooded. It looks fantastic and I can’t wait until When Words Collide (WWC) for everyone to read it.

Writing
A few exciting events last month, the highlight being my inclusion in the tenth anniversary of Writing in the Works. I read from my novel in progress and hung out with some great folks.

Otherwise, I submitted a few stories to various markets, wrote a bunch, and generally went with the flow. Not the best way to get my novel finished, but it’s crawling along.

Running
I managed, with my buddy Steve’s support, to hobble my way through Diez Vista, a 50km mountain race with an ample amount of challenging elevation. Nasty and hard, but I survived. It made me realize I need to lose about twenty pounds before the main event in September.

For a bit of active recover I ran the 30km Eyeball the Wall race the Saturday morning of Calgary Expo. Probably not the brightest move, considering I needed to immediately head to the Expo, but a nice way to work the kinks out. Now I need to get my butt into gear, get lean, put my nose to the endurance grindstone.

Upcoming Events

Book of the Week/Month/Variable Time Period
Sandman Slim by Richard Kadrey
Why didn’t I read this sooner? I must have been living under a rock. This is exactly the sort of story I love the most – paranormal/supernatural mystery with all the right crazy.
