EARTHCORE Episode #2

In the last episode, the book’s prologue set the stage for a nasty bit of evil lurking in the desolate hills of Utah. Now the book begins in earnest as Connell Kirkland and Sonny McGuiness begin journeys that soon pit them against each other in a fight for wealth and power.

EARTHCORE Episode #1

]Here we go, here we go, here we go again. Thirteen years after the podcast that firmly established Siglerism as the 487th-fastest-growing religion in the world,  the podcast that created a bloodthirsty army of Junkies, the final “master edition” of this scifi thriller rolls out as a podcast novel all its own. Thrills and chills are our business, and cousin, and for your Future Dark Øverlord, business is a-boomin! It’s time, once again, for death from below.

VACATION Episode #2

While on Vacation with his dog, Ghost, in San Francisco, Joe Ledger has been asked to investigate the murder of two DEA agents. The suspects? Tres Hermanos Orco — the Orc Brothers. So named because they reportedly look like actual orcs. Blood analysis of samples allegedly left behind by one of the Orc Brothers shows a strange, third sex chromosome — not an X or a Y, but one shaped like a Z. The supercomputer MindReader found a mitochondrial DNA match to that blood, with one Jebediah Erickson, resident of San Francisco. Ledger was greeted by SFPD Inspector Lawrence “Pookie” Chang, who took Ledger to Erickson’s mansion. Just one thing — Erickson looks to be 30, but he’s supposed to be in his 80s. Something fishy is afoot. As Ledger and Ghost sit down to talk to Erickson, and Erickson’s dog Emma, Ledger starts to separate truth from lies and the blood will flow

This post is about being happy, productive and successful in your creative life.

Han’s rescue — what, exactly, was the plan?

StorySmack Episode #34

THE LAST JEDI has come under fire for nonsensical plot elements and characters making LOST-esque idiotic decisions, but if we jump in the WayBack Machine™ and take a look at RETURN OF THE JEDI, we find that nonsensical might be endemic to all STAR WARS movies —  read also, if there was a “plan” to rescue Han, what the hell was it, and how did it go so wrong?
