:-)

I feel like things have been going ok lately. Though work could be going a little better, I have been gotten better at following "procedures," such as getting my work checked.
The main things I need to do are make new friends, track down some old ones, and work on some stories I have been developing. I know that some of my old friends still live in the area, so I want to track them down. Let me know if you have any suggestions. I am also excited about my new stories.
There are some movies at the dollar theater I am also excited about seeing.

new entry on smashwords

Great news!
I have a new work up on Smashwords! It is called 3 Trips Down Life's Byways, and I am very excited about it. Once again, it is a trilogy.
Squirrelman II is the first story. It furthers the adventure of my favorite creation, Maples' favorite superhero.
The next entry is called "The Rabbi's Ricochet." It deals with a rabbi named Lenny Lewis who used to play in the NBA, and he also moonlights as a writer and a "helper" for the police. His past suddenly comes back to haunt him, and just as suddenly, his old college gang/teammates are here too. Can they and his new friends help him?
The final entry is called "The Orange-Eyed Invasion." A woman named Kendra Simmons is worried that her friend Elena won't return her calls. She and her friend Joe suddenly becomes aware of strange things happening around town. Can her friend and the happenings be related, and can she help stop them?
Let me know if you'd be interested in reading this and my other posts on that site. Thanks!

updates

Things are going fairly well. It looks like things are going better at work, and I am about to post another manuscript on Smashwords, as soon as I can get a cover design from a digital designer I have been working with for a cover. She always does a great job. I have also been working on some other new stories. I am excited about things on that front. I am also excited about things on the concert front. Two artists-Blake Shelton and Don Williams-will be coming to town soon, and we might be able to see them. Richardson Community Band summer band concert season is also about to start. I am looking forward to that-we're regulars at those. I have also been watching lots of movies. Let me know if you need a recommendation.

"me"

This has been a decent year so far. Last year, I got to meet Little Big Town at a Keith Urban concert, so I am keeping an eye out for more concerts! I just pieced together another trilogy. As soon as a lady I'm working with is ready for me to do my cover work (it will be at least till May), I will post it on Smashwords. I've been using that to try and get noticed as a writer. Let me know if you'd ever be interested in reading any of my stories. I'd be glad to share. I have a wicked imagination!
I have also been watching lots of movies-mostly from Netflix. I am currently watching Grey Owl starring Pierce Brosnan on a computer.
I also posted all my "me songs" on my ipod. Let me know if you'd be interested in hearing them.

!

Lots of good things have been happening lately. I have been trying to think of good ideas for my writing, I saw the One O'Clock Lab Band, and work has been going well. I also got a DVD of an awards show I had been after.
There is someone I have been trying to track down from high school. I have never been able prove that she even existed. Let me know if you have any suggestions. I have also been trying to track other people down.
I had to miss a concert for a second time, but if the artist ever comes back to town and there is not a conflict, I will try and catch her.
I hope I can sell more copies of my writing on Smashwords!

great news!

I sold my first book on Smashwords! It was a copy of 3 Bios in a Circle. I was very thrilled. This might be the start of something good.
Let me know if you might be interested in reading any of my writing. I am currently working on some stories, but my current completed work is up on Smashwords. You can sample & download it there, but if you'd like it straight from the horse's mouth (I've always hated that expression), I would be glad to send you some stories and samples.
I am also trying to find inspiration for other stories. Let me know if you have any ideas. Thanks!

movies

This week, I have seen movies like The Smurfs 2, We're the Millers, and Star Trek Into Darkness. in the theaters. I have enjoyed them all. If you need a movie recommendation, just drop me a line. I have decent taste in movies, as I see a lot of movies in the theaters and use Netflix. I might someday become a top movie critic!
I tend to agree a lot with Leonard Maltin's reviews.
I saw Unbreakable last night on DVD. That is on my Netflix recommendations list (under "surprise endings). Let me know if you would ever like to see that list.
I have gotten into movies from New Zealand as well.
