Senior Hour by Daniel Gatlin Photo by Silviu-Costin on Pexels.com Dorothea checked the pillow beside her. Old habit. Her Robert had been gone for seven years this November. She rose slowly, ignoring the pain in her left knee as she put on her slippers. Holding steady to her walker, she boosted herself up and began … Continue reading Senior Hour
Apparently this is a hashtag on Twitter. Who knew? I find your lack of hashtags disturbing. So I thought I'd toss my hat in to the whole villain mix. This month's featured post is all about the antagonist to my first book, Maiden to None. Her name is Kember. Here's some artwork I've recently had … Continue reading March Villain Madness
I finally have some additional artwork of my titular triplets. This is Duke. His book will be the second in the series. This is Trinity. She is the heroine of book one called Maiden to None, which will be completed later this year. And here is the last one. This is Leo. His book would … Continue reading New Artwork!
I had a dream about this last night. Figured it was worth writing down in the very least. It should also be noted that I know there are some intellectual properties with this title in their songs and stories. However, I am not sharing this story for monetary gain. Only for content purposes. And because … Continue reading Daughter of the Moon
I was walking around in my local B&N in early December. That’s Barnes and Noble to you non Bibliophiles. It’s cleaner than it sounds, I promise. That’s when I first stumbled upon a King title I had never heard of. It was really quite an accident. I walked past a rack of returns, and only … Continue reading The Girl Who Loved Tom Gordon by Stephen King: A Book Review
Hey gang, just checking in. I got very busy this week and fell behind with writing! Ugh! It seemed like this was the week everything decided to break down, and that included our health. It wasn’t this cute, I can promise you that. Nevertheless, I am happy to say I got some much needed work … Continue reading Super Dud
This post isn't really for anyone other than myself, but feel free to read along as I try to manage the chaos that is 9PM on a Wednesday. I make planning fun! Ah yes...I have no idea what any of this means. My current class at SNHU is having us schedule all of our writing … Continue reading Forgive the Pun: I’m Booked!
I recently finished Hannah Tinti's The Good Thief. I chose it for one selfish reason: I too am writing a novel about a kindhearted thief. Though my protagonist, Leo, doesn't appear in my series of fictional stories until long after his twin siblings, Duke and Trinity, have had their stories. Still, I thought it was … Continue reading The Good Thief by Hannah Tinti (A Book Review by Daniel Gatlin)
Well I'm breaking one of my rules. I'm posting a small snippet from the main text. But I'm only doing so because I was able to get some artwork done finally. I found a fantastic artist named Lunaros (check out her work here at https://www.deviantart.com/lunaros). I commissioned her for a drawing and she did not … Continue reading Submerged
(Author's Note: I wrote this scene to introduce two of my minor characters. Though Ronalko and the blue-haired man have somewhat unsettling presences in this short scene, I assure you they are some of my favorite characters in the story. This scene takes place long before the first novel, so I have no problem with … Continue reading The Forbidden Song
