This week has seen me do absolutely nothing in the bookbinding studio of life; life itself is interfering at the most inappropriate time. Such as when I want to make a book but haven’t the time. There are many books I want to make but need to put them off for a bit longer; perhaps winter will provide more time.

First up, if time permits, is This Page. This Page is a graphic paper, paperback-size (A6) notebook. I have it set out on my computer and await only ink, time, and paper. What more could I need?  


Fiction has seen me spread my time too thin, too; too many books to write, not enough time.

For example: I want to finish The Fear Trilogy. Book 0 is up and for sale on all the usual places except Amazon. Book 1 is almost finished. Book 2 is slated to be written during NaNoWriMo (November Novel Writing Month). Book 3 will be written shortly thereafter. One can hope.

Second, I have outlined my Revenge Trilogy and written chapters one and two of Book 1 titled Dark Death. Book 2 is Dark Vengeance and Book 3 is Dark Solace

However, on InDesign on my computer, I have started two more books. Instant Rain and The Death Amulet from the Howling Dog. This means my fiction-writing time is really, really spread thin. I need to concentrate on one (Fear Itself, Book One of The Fear Trilogy) and let the others slide a bit. Will I? I wouldn’t take any bets on it.

Instant Rain deals with four friends whose employer is killed and they set out to find out who the culprit is. At the same time they are trying to get their band jobs. They are ‘adequate’ as musicians and ‘nearly competent’ as murder investigators. 

The Death Amulet from the Howling Dog is a ghost or haunting story about a woman who fears for her life or her sanity.
