...and we survived Florida! I probably should have written this post immediately after our return, but exhaustion took over and I desperately needed a vacation from my vacation. Plus, a lot has been happening in our lives, so I really haven't had time or energy to write much. Hell, my newsletter hasn't had anything go out… Continue reading Hogwarts or Bust
....you want me to go out? Social Anxiety! ACK! Yeah, it's a problem I have. I want to go hang out with friends, yet I don't because Oh My Fuck, I have to interact with people (strangers) and what if I say or do something stupid. I mean, I have no problem laughing at myself, but… Continue reading The Secret Life of Jinxie G: Part IV
I'd started this post last week, but then it became entirely too personal. Depression had reared its ever-so-ugly head yet again, but I've got a handle on it now and can write somewhat sanely about it. You know that edge of depression, where you're fucking teetering, about to lose your balance and fall over? I'd passed… Continue reading The Secret Life of Jinxie G: Part III
....because giveaways are always fun! That's right, it's time for another event with awesome prizes like a Kindle Fire and Amazon gift cards! When: Now! I mean, August 31st through September 4th. Where: Online, of course, on Facebook. Prizes: I already told you the big ones, but each author throughout the event will be giving… Continue reading Labor Day Celebration Multi-Author Event
You've read this blog and likely think my life is an open book and how in the hell could there be any Secret Life, but secret lives aren't necessarily spy-worthy tales to tell or skeletons in the closet. Hell, those were outed years ago by my uncle and myself. It's how we amuse ourselves, I… Continue reading The Secret Life of Jinxie G, Part II
I watched The Secret Life of Walter Mitty (the remake with Ben Stiller) last night and thought about how similar to Walter's life mine is. I mean, I’ve seen the movie before and knew then that I am oh-so-much like Walter Mitty, but in subtle ways I’m different. For instance, the fantasy at play within my… Continue reading The Secret Life of Jinxie G, Part I
...or, my plans to take over the world. Wait...forget I said that. I can't tell you my plans. That's completely negating everything between now and my monologuing end (I hope it's a good death). *sigh* Fine. I'll tell you a story. Sort of. I write because of the need to escape the reality I've lived most… Continue reading Why I Write
...when I'm not actually working the event. Phoenix Comicon was the last weekend in May this year and I had a blast, even though my body was basically all "fuck you" after walking for two days straight. Originally, I was only supposed to go for one day, but my friend Gary Wilson over at Nightstalker… Continue reading Adventures in Comiconland
Recently, I drove up to Las Vegas for the Wizard World Comicon to work with Juliette Terzieff and wrangle Michael Rooker again for a weekend, which I do not do often enough. Seriously. Working with them is always a blast of fun and craziness.
In which I discuss the Game of Thrones episode that people are freaking out over.
