Batman vs. Superman and Writing

You may say that I’m on a mission this year and I am. I will restructuring the website to be just the simplest of sites for my writing and the genre of my writing passion which is the superheroic/supernatural/action/science-fiction genre (yeah. Just made that up).

So that means I’m going to be playing catch up in the next few weeks when it comes to my movies. So, first up on the chopping block is DCs 2016 bomb, Batman vs. Superman: Dawn of Justice. Good googly moogly. Read on intrepid read reader, if you dare.

Ant-Man and Writing

Ant-Man-Banner-Slide

Ant-Man was the last superheroic movie that was added to the Marvel cinematic movie continuity last year (weird saying that). I didn’t get to it until later on in the year much after the fact.

My Book Cover Journey: Part III – The Business

It’s generally understood that the three top things that sells a book are the price, the description, and the book cover. That’s just part of the business and it’s a part that we have to deal with business-like. That means when we are ready to get that cover done, we already have our agreement in hand and ready to send off to the designer, illustrator, or both if they are all one person. But do you really have to spend hundreds of dollars to have a lawyer draft you up one? Uh…the answer to that is an unequivocal, no. Here’s what you need to do.

Why I Have No Face

I’ve been around now for a little over a year and I realized that some people who come to the site may be wondering, “What does this guy look like?” It’s not because it’s all that important. Maybe you’re just curious. Maybe you’re simply wanting to place a face with the writer. Or maybe you’re a stalker. I don’t know. Well, today I answer that question for better or for worse.
