In Remembrance of Barbara Porter, Loving Mother and Friend

If you’ve followed this site for very long, you will know that my mother has been a huge influence on not only me, but my work. Her stories inspired me to tell stories. Her encouragement led me to start this site. Her presence is part of the reason why I focus so much on creating female characters with heart and meaning.

Unfortunately, if you follow this site, you also know that my mother has suffered a long string of misfortunes, usually with only this single son at her side. I know you know because this wonderful little community we’ve built here has been so incredibly supportive and kind to me throughout; from her hospitalizations and diagnosis of congestive heart failure years ago, to her gall bladder rupture last year, to the essential theft of her home by a predatory mortgage company also during that time and our subsequent move halfway across the country only to end up moving from motel to motel.

Last month, we found an apartment and I thought the parade of disasters was over. I thought I’d been able to see my mother through all the hardship and could hope to start something better.

One More Week

Thanks to Arnold Schwarzenegger (it’s a very long story involving his sports festival forcing us to move hotels to one where writing on the laptop proved to be impossible) for a while, I’m going to need one more week to get new content written. Thanks for being patient and if you’d like to help, you can do so via the Patreon link to the left.

Next week guys, I guarantee it will be worth it.

A Short Absence

Greetings loyal readers of this site.

If you’ve been following along, the past year has not been a great one for me. My mother almost died, we had to move a third of the way across the country, and we’ve been having trouble finding a permanent place to stay; having to live in a hotel for the past two months. Such problems have been evidenced by the lack of weekly articles, a less than stellar update schedule, and even fewer books being released.

The next two weeks are going to be especially difficult, as we’re going to have to switch hotels while still looking for apartments and I’m trying very hard to put together an IndieGoGo/Kickstarter/GoFundMe for World of Ere d20. I have a choice of taking this time off or having my work quality really fall off in the middle of the big anniversary story.

I choose the former. So there will be no updates for the first two weeks of March unless I can find someone to post in my stead.

I really need this and thank you all in advance for letting me take this time to try to shake off at least a few of the … Continue reading

I’m Moving, So No Updates For 07/25
