Last week, I shared my notes and ideas from a panel I sat through at ConDor Con in San Diego, CA. The panel was titled Using Mythology as a Basis for Fiction and was given by Stephen Provost. This week, I will wrap up my observations and notes. For the first part, click here. Continue reading
Stephen H. Provost, who also writes as Stifyn Emrys, conducted a panel called Using Mythology as a Basis for Fiction. https://www.amazon.com/s/ref=sr_pg_1?fst=p90x%3A1&rh=n%3A283155%2Ck%3Astephen+h.+provost&keywords=stephen+h.+provost&ie=UTF8&qid=1489526299 Continue reading
Life is an endless stream of blanks to be filled in. What to have for dinner. What to wear. Who to date. When to have kids. What to name the kids. How long to stay married. And where to live.
I got myself in over my head as far as time to do things. Without losing any of my regular obligations for blogs, group moderation, posts, writing, etc., I got into a beta read situation with two wonderful authors. So this blog is going to be short and sweet. Continue reading
Writing blogs can be difficult. Often we are talking to ourselves because the audience doesn’t hit the like button or comment or even breath loud enough to let us know they are there.

I never went to my prom, I only went to one dance, and I had so much fun standing in a corner all night rocking out to covers of Strange Brew.

You can find her wonderful paranormal books on her web page: http://cjcorbin.com/home/ Continue reading
