I reformatted and updated the paperback version of Oasis so that the paperback cover now matches the (much better) ebook cover. It’s available on Amazon now. I also got things set up for The Journey of St. Laurent, but as I looked over my proof copy, I noticed a typo on the back cover. Oops. […]
Okay, I’ve done several “last” editing passes on the Journey of St. Laurent. I’m pretty happy with the end result. Also, if I don’t quit now, I’ll never finish editing it. Over the next couple of days I’m going to password protect the posts that make up the final 2/3 of the first draft. Within […]
I finished going over Dane’s suggested edits a little while ago. He helped me out tremendously. Go buy his books. I cut a ton of fat from the story. Like 20,000 words worth. The book just came back from yet another editor, who was searching for typos and major inconsistencies. It should only take a […]
Here’s the cover for “The Journey of St. Laurent.” I hope you like it at least half as much as I do.
I’m like one of those plastic surgery addicts, but with my blog theme.
Here’s what’s going on in my world recently. I may not have been posting here, but I’ve been staying busy. I’m on Chapter 52 of my “Journey…” edits. The end is in sight! I’m about 3/4 done writing the kid’s book. I think. My daughters ask me every night if I’m ever going to finish […]
I’m starting to get a little tired of this crap. I have a bunch of sites hosted on one account. A couple of weeks ago all of them were hacked. A line of code was added to every php file in my account. That code would sometimes automatically redirect people to one of a list […]
Okay, I’m about a third of the way through editing â€œThe Journey of St. Laurent.â€ I’m having a good time slashing stuff left and right. Don’t worry, though, there’ll be new fiction on here soon. I’ve got all sorts of stuff on the horizon. In the meantime, if you haven’t picked up a copy of […]
Okay, I finally wrote THE END for The Journey of St. Laurent. The final chapter will go up on Friday. I’ve got a pile of short stories and other stuff that need to be written now. And of course I need to go back and make all the sweeping changes I’ve been thinking about. And […]
New Theme. Yes, I have changed the theme once again. I just can’t stop myself. Anyway, I made it so that StoryHack.com and BryceABeattie.com match fairly closely now. If you see any weirdness with it, please let me know. In case you’re wondering, to build this theme I started started with lifehacker’s blank theme. Then […]
This morning I got a wake up call. Not the kind that gets you out of bed, mind you. This was the metaphoric kind. Although it was still on the phone. My long-time internet writing buddy J. Dane Tyler (aka DarcKnyt) was afraid that I had fallen off the face of the Earth, so he […]
(photo credit) â€¦since I won a fighting competition. I think the last time was before my first daughter was born. It was a local Karate tournament, and I took 1st place in my division (& totally ruined a buddy’s perfect undefeated season ). Well, I did it again, although this time it was a very […]
Sorry, I know you must be sad, but I was not able to polish up a chapter to the point where I thought it good enough to post. I could give you some lame excuse about my currently insomniac 18 month old (not pictured above), but you don’t want to hear it.
Here’s the composition sketch I got back from the artist. I think this is really going to help the book look more like its genre. (& hopefully sell more copies) I’m pretty stoked to try it out.
I have a guest post today over at The Creative Penn. It’s called The 5 Commandments of Blog Tourists. In other news, there will be a new chapter tomorrow.
I just tweaked the theme. let me know if something weird happens in your browser.
I have a guest post over on ByzantineRoads.info today. I talk a bit about the writing software I use and the problem I have with it. Go check it out.
You know how I’ve been going on and on about some mysterious â€˜secret project’? I’ll bet you thought that project was code for â€œBryce is too lazy to write anything.â€ I don’t blame you. I would have thought the same. However, I’m getting close to a public beta, so I think it’s time I spill […]
If you ever get the chance to drive long distances through Wyoming during winter when the winds pick up, my advice is this â€“ avoid it. Two nights ago I was in Rawlins, WY. Temperatures were in the negatives with wind bursts of over 45 mph. How do those people live like that? They must […]
Well, this is pretty much the new theme. I know I’ve still got to iron out a few kinks. If you see anything that looks particularly weird or something that is broken, please let me know so that I can fix it up. Basically, I wanted the theme to appear simpler and focus on the […]
Okay, I’m bored with the current theme. Look for a new one sometime this week. I just have to finish putting it together and make sure it doesn’t break anything.
â€¦ I was holding the chapter hostage until I got enough recommendations on tumblr. Because I never did get a chapter up. I’m such a loser. Anyway, it is close. Stay tunedâ€¦
My wife’s grandmother passed away late last week, so she packed up the girls and headed for Seattle. You’d think I’d be able to get more writing done over the weekend. Oh, well, I was busy extracting honey from my beehives, texturing a ceiling, and I had a bunch of church responsibilities on Sunday, plus […]
You know how I’m always saying I’ve got a bunch of other projects going on and that why I have no chapter? I’ll bet that always sounds like a load of malarkey. Anyway, I’m close (very close) to polishing one of those mystery projects up right now. It’s a wordpress plugin that I’ve wanted to […]
Ick. Well, it looks like the motherboard to my computer is fried. That makes me unhappy. At least I’ve been good about backups. You know what else makes me unhappy? The government. Seriously. Recently, President Obama (or at least whatever staff member has keys to the account) tweeted the following: A vote against the DISCLOSE […]
