This is it — the pilot blog post of my new web site. I’ve created this site for the purpose of promoting my writing and also to have some fun. If I do this well, I’ll accomplish both objectives and hopefully make this a fun experience for you as well.
In eleven days (gulp), I intend to have the first episode of my new podcast novel, Acts of Desperation, posted here for download. I’ve been busy recording and editing the text, and unless the upcoming holiday celebrations throw me for a complete loop, I’ll have episode #1 up on New Year’s Day. If I get time this week, I’ll upload a pilot podcast episode — sort of a “let’s see how this comes out” type of episode. If I don’t have time to do it properly, I’ll make episode one of Acts the maiden voyage.
I’m tremendously excited about the upcoming podcast. I’ve had the itch to do this for a few years now. For this, I must unconditionally blame Tee Morris, Mur Lafferty, Scott Sigler, J.C. Hutchins, Steve Eley, Christiana Ellis, Pip Ballantine, Rachel Swirsky, and all the other podcasters who have taken over virtually all of my listening time. I do have some music stored on my iPod, but I don’t really remember why. I’ve become a hopeless podcast junkie, and it’s payback time.
I hope you will like the work I put up here, but whether you love it, hate it, or simply give it a resounding “meh,” I very much want your feedback. Blog comments, voice mail, e-mail, fax, messages in a bottle — I’m open to all forms of media.
Not much else to say right now. Just wanted to smash the champagne bottle against this ship and get her out to sea. I’ll have more substantive material very soon. Until then, thanks for visiting and I hope you’ll come back soon!
