Thou Doth Quote Too Much

cytotec no script Believe it or not, the first draft of Dark Matters (Book 1) didn’t include famous quotes at the start of each chapter. But I’ve always enjoyed the well-placed aphorism, and thought that subtly relevant quotes to begin each chapter would be a great addition to the story. So during the editing phase, I spent a […]

But is the wealth of the millions in the top 1% really the issue? Consider:The world’s 1800 billionaires–the top 0.0002%–are growing their wealth much faster than the richest 1%. And in […]

Wiped from Existence

As I search for an agent to represent the book, I am also continuing to edit the completed Dark Matters manuscript. (And begin the work on Book Two in the series, by the way…).

Book Done, Search Has Begun

Sorry for the dearth of recent posts… the good news, the manuscript for Dark Matters: The Chosen is complete at 91,000 words and 40 chapters. I’m very happy with the first draft.

Dark Matter

Heavy into the Dark Matter chapters this week… becoming a pseudo-expert in all things baryonic and non-baryonic, supersymmetry, and extra dimensions, of course. Oof. “These are just a few of the things I control in my world.” (Extra credit if you can name the source of this quote… it’s an obscure movie favorite of mine). […]
