The Dark Traveler Comes

Hi Folks,

Sorry I missed posting last week, but as they say, “Life is what happens while you make other plans.”
However, we’re back on track this week. So, with that in mind, here’s what’s new for this coming week.

We are ready to release Dark Traveler at last. Our cover artist wasn’t able to meet the deadline, but our magical editor has managed to create a cover for the book. I think she’s done a fine job. So, here’s the cover.

Sometimes the thing you fear most is the one thing you truly need. Dale, a young thief on the run is surely in need.
This is an adventure story set in a medieval world. Dale is a transgender teen trying to survive on his own.
Look for Dark Traveler to appear in the next few days. I will post again when it goes live.

ROW80 check in:

I have to confess I haven’t written a thousand words in two weeks. Sigh. Life sure can get in the way sometimes. 

So, here we go again. I am going to shoot at four thousand words this coming week. I also want to get Dark Traveler up in time for the Transgender Day of Remembrance.

Well, that’s it for me this time. I will post again as soon as Dark Traveler goes live.


Things I love Guitar

Hi folks, it is time for another installment of the Things I Love project. This time I want to tell you about my long standing love for the guitar.
When I was young I got the measles and had to stay in bed for days. One day my sister dropped her guitar on my bed. “If you can learn to play a song by Friday you get to keep the guitar.”  Oh yeah, it was mine from there. That was over fifty years ago and about twenty years ago I passed it on to my son. I learned to play by ear, and thought I was pretty good at one time. recently I learned what a real guitarist could do.
Oh sure, I heard the greats and been completely impressed, but the other day I accidentally  discovered a video of an Australian fellow named Tommy Emmanuel.
I was captivated and watch spellbound. When it was over I asked myself, “Just what the hell did I just see here?” So today I will show you two of his videos. The first is a more conventional piece, Guitar Boogie, a favorite of mine. The second is a piece he wrote himself. If you are pressed for time, just watch the second one.

Folks, I hope you enjoy this man’s artistry as much as I do, for he has no equal. enjoy.
So, tell me what you thought. I’d love to hear from you.
