I’m a little late to the whole blog game. But I figured, hey, it’s 2006, so I should definitely get on this.
What’s that? 2016?
Well this is embarrassing.
I really don’t have a good reason for not making a website earlier. I guess I just didn’t have that much to say. I’ll pause now for the people who know me to stop laughing. But seriously, the longer I waited, the more it became a question of why. It’s not like there’s this vacant space on the internet that’s dying for me to fill it. And while I have lots of things to say, none of them seem particularly important when weighed against the balance of what’s going on in the world.
And then I wrote a book, and got an agent, and so I figured I might want some place to talk about that. It’s about a future army on the other side of the galaxy, with intrigue and explosions and stuff. So that was another reason to start this.
Because I’m 100% sure that the world needs another website by an unpublished author. More on books and things at another time.
So what am I here to do? If you’re looking for a serious take on life, you’re probably in the wrong place. You’re more likely to find random thoughts that strike me. Those thoughts will usually be ridiculous. A few months back, I was writing a piece of short fiction that involved an ex-con stealing a time machine in the future, and recording the exploits on his I-Phone 77. At the time, I thought, wow, if only I had a blog to post this on. If I did, then people would know to do better background checks on their janitors if they work in secret time-machine building laboratories.
So that’s my audience. If you secretly build time-machines, you’re going to want to sign up for my newsletter. You don’t want to miss out on important hiring tips.
I suppose the rest of you can hang around, too, if you want. You’ll probably get updates on books I’m working on, and things like that. Or pictures of animals standing on unusual objects. Look. A goat on a chair. I don’t know why the goat was on a chair. We pulled over to the side of the road in Ireland, and there it was. What other animals on what other objects, you ask? Well, I guess you’ll just have to subscribe to my website and find out. See what I did there? That’s what we authors call a cliffhanger. That’s a free tip.
Stay tuned in the near future for information about my participation as a mentor in Pitchwars, as well as some other random stuff that I probably haven’t thought of yet. Thanks for stopping by!
