Welcome to the Cenotaph Road website,

A variety of pen names this time, collaborations, if you please.
But with a difference. Collaboration with myself (as Jackson Lowry,
Karl Lassiter and Dana Fox) went nicely, thank you. The Wolf Creek
book is a case of my Jackson Lowry pen name having another pen
name, Ford Fargo. Strangeness, indeed, but that's the world I
live and work in. Check these out. You will enjoy them, from traditional
western to steampunk to SF.
I am getting excited about the October 1 autographing at the
Albuquerque Museum. 21 NM authors over a wide range of genres.
Anne Hillerman, David Morrell, Melody Groves, Steve Brewer, Joseph
Badal and bunches of others. SF is well represented by Jane Lindskold
and Betsy James (and to a lesser extent, me--I am concentrating
on westerns, especially weird westerns...I'm speaking on that
topic at 3pm). Finish off your morning balloon fiesta watching,
come on down to Old Town to look around, drop in and see us--it's
free, 10am-5pm. A great time to get signed books for Christmas
presents. See you there!
I am still working on a few improvements at the online store.
Look at what you will, and if something isn't right, let me know.
Working to finish a western project, then sketching out an sf
book for NaNoWriMo. Love the software showing daily progress and
it's a nudge to keep me working during a month that's hard to
motivate in--between Halloween and Thanksgiving and getting into
Xmas and New Year's.
Theatrical movies: Not a darned thing and there's nothing on
the horizon worth mentioning, except maybe Miss Perergine
at the end of the month. And the new Godzilla movie.

It's the small things in life... Or at least the 140 character
New stuff after a long time about plotting a series arc.
My e-books on the catalog
page. Great stuff.
iPad viewing: Binge watching season 5 of Longmire. Not
sure if I want to bother with some of the others, though Mr.
Robot is on my list.
iPad reading: Cherie Priest's Chapelwood. Almost done.
Dead tree reading: Joe Lansdale's Honky Tonk Samurai.
