What Is Unusual Events? · 6:48pm Sep 10th, 2015

Hey guys! Sorry for my silence this week. What started as a holiday weekend sideswiped me with unexpected life, so I've been somewhat quiet up until today. This weekend I'll be working out the winners of The Dusk Guard Saga Art Contest! I'm sorry I had to delay this a bit, but between Unusual Events going into it's second alpha, getting Beyond the Borderlands ready for the final push, and real life (by which I mean bills, taxes, and everything else Calvin and Hobbes

My favorite book of all time · 3:25am Sep 3rd, 2017

is The Brothers Karamazov.

This is a very spontaneous blog post, but I really wanted to make it known for some reason. If you have't already, I heartily recommend you check this book out, particularly the P&V translation. Everything you need to know about life The Brothers Karamazov has—romance, the limits of human reasoning, psychology, existentialism, good storytelling, good morals, and on and on.

My thoughts on:Perfected (Perfected #1) by Kate Jarvik Birch · 3:41am Jun 23rd, 2015

As soon as the government passed legislation allowing humans to be genetically engineered and sold as pets, the rich and powerful rushed to own beautiful girls like Ella. Trained from birth to be graceful, demure, and above all, perfect, these “family companions” enter their masters’ homes prepared to live a life of idle luxury.

So, Help Me Decide Please · 6:02am Dec 26th, 2017

So I wanna get a book. The only problem is that I can’t decide between two books.

I’m looking at either:
Starfire: A Red Piece by Spencer Ellsworth (And it’s subsequent two sequels)
or
The Wrong Stars by Tim Pratt

Any recommendations for which I get?

Op-Ed: The Sixth Thing · 6:28pm May 4th, 2017

It figures. Barely a day after the original Five Things Non-Writers Should Know About Writers and Writing went up, I was hit with the epiphany that I'd left something out. And I had. I'd left out a very important bit that, for whatever reason, didn't occur to me while I was putting together the original post.

Oh well. We all know that "Five Things" feels a bit snappier than six. Humanity is odd like that, but it's true.

PATREON

I've made another post for patrons only on my Patron.

I'm going to try and post things there more often. I know I don't have a lot to offer. But, I will say, that I will soon be releasing the new art version of Daring Do and the Griffon's Goblet in hardback book, and patrons will get discounts and first dibs before they hit my general store.

Review: Of Gods and Goats · 3:10am Feb 4th, 2017

Of Gods and Goats. A novella that one of my best friends wrote and published. I had been waiting a year to read a copy of it. So when it came out I knew that I had to order a copy and read it.

Yes, you read that right. Not an hour ago, I turned the last page of Colony's Copy-Edit.

It's done. Finished. Right now I'm putting the final file together for upload. Tomorrow I get the cover and the description finished. And then ... ?

Colony goes live for pre-order.

Why You Should Read ... Ciaphas Cain: Hero of the Imperium · 8:34pm Nov 10th, 2017

So I'm trying something new today here at Unusual Things. I've had the idea for a post series like this in the back of my head for a while now, and while it's not going to be a regular series like Being a Better Writer is, I do hope it might be an occasional counterpart.

"Learning To Fly" Draft 2 Complete! · 3:21am Mar 10th, 2017

105.4K words, and the second draft of "Learning To Fly" is complete! The next steps are some mix of taking a break from it for a few days, and fixing up the proposed new opening (which will make this even longer), and doing a spellcheck (done!). After those, I need to do a proper edit because this is 2/3 new material and bits of it are probably stupid. Would anyone like to beta-read?

Alright Folks · 6:21pm April 13th

If I write an original book, with my own thoughts and direction, would you all like to read it when it comes out? I would like some feedback to it, because I’ll be publishing it when it’s finished in a year or so.

What would you say about that?
