Shorter stories this time around, the last one with a twist--you
can pick who died and whodunnit. Each section is different.
Finished the latest western project, all 95k words of it, and
am launching into a brand new one due by the first of the year.
Busy, busy, you betcha. Always difficult this time of year because
so much Xmasy stuff intrudes, whether I want it to or not. But
parties are fun and the only chance I have to see many people
more than once a year.
Pirates of the Golden West in all its steampunk glory
surges along. There is a tentative March 1 deadline for getting
this out to see the light of day. That is especially nice because
I hope to again go to WildWestCon over in Tucson. I had a lot
of fun last time around, and this time one of the musical groups
is Cog Is Dead.
Theatrical movies: The new Jack Reacher movie was
meh. Not even good chase scenes and Tom Cruise is getting too
long of tooth to make the fight scenes look good. OTOH, I saw
Doctor Strange in 3D. One of the few movies that you really
should spend the extra bucks to see it that way. I was even considering
seeing it in IMAX but it got bounced before I could. Fun movie.
Also well done is Arrival. SF, sure, but I could make the
case for paranormal. If I have the time, I'll take in the new
not-a-Harry-Potter movie tomorrow.

New stuff after a long time about plotting a series arc.
My e-books on the catalog
page. Great stuff.
iPad viewing: Night Manager with Tom Hiddleston and Hugh
Laurie was good enough to stay to the end. Hell or High Water
was a load of fun, especially picking out where in NM it was filmed
(amidst mentions of my dad's stomping grounds of Olney and Archer
City in Texas). Also picked up on a YouTube documentary on the
Salton Sea. That is one weird place, or rather the people who
live around it are weird.
iPad reading: Finished Scott Phillips' new Drink the Blood
of Pete book. I'll let you know when it is for sale. Wonderfully
Dead tree reading: doing research for the next western with Chisolm
for the finest in fantasy, sword & sorcery fiction (and sf
and mysteries and...) And in the for-free mode on my store, look
in on a story from along the Cenotaph Road.
