Last year I worked four jobs (including writing.) I managed to put out five books in 2016. My favorite fiction has turned out to be Dream’s Dark Flight. It’s got a little more sci-fi packed into the fantasy. However, in the long term, the most important book for me is Do the Thing! I think it will be important to you, too. Please let me tell you how it has changed my life. Last summer I…"Get things done without killing yourself."
On this, the final episode of the Self-publishing Roundtable, we reminisced about what has gone before and what’s ahead (including a fresh podcast from me.) I’ll launch the All That Chazz Stress Relief Podcast in the second week of January, 2017. It will be the companion audio for my new stress management guide, Do the Thing!) My co-panelists were these fun writers: Erica Conroy, Chrishaun Keller-Hanna, Wade Finnegan, Xavier Granville, Zoe Wall, and Dave Wright.…"The End of an Era! The Last Episode of SPRT!"
(And by writing music, I mean music to write to.) I’m on hiatus from one of my jobs and my other work is slow this week. Concentrating on publishing since I have so many manuscripts banked. I’m going to be be doing more book and life updates here, so don’t forget to subscribe, please. I’m aiming to finish revisions on the next book in the Ghosts & Demons Series (which will all be rebranded The Dimension…"Writing Music & Workout Music Braingasms"
We’ve only got a few months left in 2016. I was about to say that I can’t wait for this year to be over, but 2017 isn’t any more promising. Tragic events, paranoia and hysteria aren’t confined by the calendar. We create those things by the things we think and say and do. Still, 2016 feels like a pivotal year. When we look back, we’re going to say, this was one year that sucked hard.…"What did you do during the war, daddy?"
This video was my first experiment with Meerkat, the new livestreaming app. Therefore, no editing and nothing fancy here. Just a quick bit about treating a bum knee and showing what cupping looks like. The circles on your skin last a couple of days but the process loosens up the fascia and other soft tissue. Exercise is the main thing to recover from knee injury most of the time. Have a look, and hear the…"Getting better: Video of cupping for the knee"
In this post, I’m going to cover a couple of cool things you may want to be involved in. It’s about a new show, a new book and a new life for both of us. What you might now know about me is, in addition to writing crime novels and dark fantasy, I’m a Registered Massage Therapist with over 20 years experience in injury rehabilitation and the treatment of disease conditions. (See?) I work at being…"The Pain and My New Commitments to You"
Listening to Somewhere Down the Crazy River by Robbie Robertson and thinking about sultry nights under heavy moons when you can’t sleep so you walk the streets of the city. You’re not looking for trouble, but you’re open to trouble finding you. The night is to explore and life is waiting to be discovered. Sometimes you are too much energy mixed with alcohol, no ice, and the night ends with harsh words with boys who want to…"Somewhere Down The Crazy River"
I’m listening to “Wind” by Ibrahim Maaloouf. I am inside and outside of the music at the same time. It’s smoky, bluesy jazz, the sort that uses rich, full notes to have a conversation with your soul about emptiness. I am acutely aware of my aching distance from this bar scene, this cherished scar. The air is blue. Maybe that’s the lighting or maybe that’s the hanging cigarette smoke, curling and twisting slowly. Maybe that’s my mood.…"On Writing and Word Jazz: When anything could happen"
