A Very Foxy Trailcamming

Trailcam snapped some foxy pics. Here’s some:

Wow! Foxy!

The last one amuses me. I didn’t think it was going to take our picture when I was changing the memory card… but it DID!

Enough tomfoolery. It’s time to go write up some Chuggie.

Chuggie #2 Release Date

We got the cover:

And now we even got us an Official Release Date! Get your copy of Chuggie and the Bleeding Gateways on

Friday, June 14, 2013

Mark your calendars, chums! There are some excellent reasons why you’ll want to get yourself a copy. I’ll be sharing more of those reasons the closer we get to Release Day. Until then, I recommend you re-read book #1, Chuggie and the Desecration of Stagwater. If you haven’t read that one yet, you can snag up a copy right here.


I’m going to be giving away some prizes soon, so pay attention to this here blog, the Facebook page, and/or my Twitter feed. I’ve got some cool stuff planned, and you don’t wanna miss out.

Spring and Edits

Winter hung on a little long this year. Here’s a photo I took from the end of April:

And what the heck, here’s another from that same morning. April 25th, I think:

Wondering what it looked like yesterday? This was the scene at my local golf course, Inshalla Country Club:

But I guess that’s enough small talk about the weather.

Editing is hard work, folks. You gotta make your brain go, and sometimes it no want go. I’m working closely with my editor right now (well, not this exact second…) on finalizing Chuggie and the Bleeding Gateways. I’m very pleased with this book, and I think folks are going to have lots of fun reading it. It should be available sometime in May. You might notice that it’s May right NOW. You’re very astute, and someone should buy you a pony!

I leave for South Africa in June. I’ll be gone for three weeks. What will I be doing in South Africa for three weeks? There’s a long answer and a short answer. I’ll give the short answer here: Book Research! That’s right, South Africa will be the nest. I’ll be the bird, and the next Chuggie adventure will be the egg I incubate under my butt. So just picture that for a moment. Chuggie’s third adventure is tentatively titled Chuggie and the Prisoner Gods. It’s gonna be wild, Jerry. WILD!

This website will be quiet just a little longer. Soon, however, I’ll be posting links to interviews, giving away goodies, and telling you how nice you look on a very regular basis. For now I’m going to go and listen to Rob Zombie’s new record, which I believe is titled “Venomous Rat Regeneration Vendor.” It features the instant classic ditty “Dead City Radio and the New Gods of Supertown.” If you fancy some high class audio to play on your hi-fi, I recommend you shine up your monocle, pour a snifter of brandy, and enjoy this fine album some evening.
