Hi! I’m creating a new blog. I hope you all will follow me over at that blog. I’ll post links to it here for a while before I stop posting altogether on here. The new page is spellboundscribbler.wordpress.com and please feel free to share it. I just posted my first blog at spellboundscribbler. Come on over and take a look!
I survived the move. More or less. I’m staying with friends for a bit while I find something I can live with for a long time to come. It works. I still haven’t stopped sneezing. Decided to go for full-blown bronchitis. But I’m heavily medicated so we should be right as rain soon. Now that the move is over (for now), I’m trying to get back into my writing. I made sure not to pack all my writing gear into the storage unit. I have been making notes on a new alien story. I don’t usually write aliens but I can’t get this idea out of my head. I’ve let it stew long enough that it’s about ready for a full outline and some serious writing. It’s funny and has a point and I am liking this idea a lot. Now I just need to stop coughing…
Several people helped participate in my first Rock Blog Tour. Much thanks to Whitney Coble, Tim Marquitz, Kristyn Phipps, Glenn Walker, Robin Renee, and Jennifer Cardonick Walker. All of these wonderful people helped boost the signal for the band Skinn Jakkitt. The band is keeping busy. They have a CD trailer now airing on several satellite TV channels, but I have it for you here:
The guys are getting ready for their tour that begins in Chicago in February. Rock blogger Hellion Rocks had a round table discussion with members of Skinn Jakkit, Death Rattle, The Black Cross Brotherhood, Final Curse and Stevil Helmer of Helmer Management.
Check out the discussion in its entirety here: Hellion Rocks. You can find Skinn Jakkitt at the following venues:

The Rock Blog Tour was a lot of fun and I hope to do it again soon. Who knows what music you’ll see here next?
It’s hard to believe it’s almost Thanksgiving. Yes, I have started my Christmas shopping but only because I don’t want to have to deal with the crowds later on. And I’m making a present this year and would like to not have to worry about more shopping while I try to finish it.
What else is going on? I was sick the entire month of October. I’m halfway through the current quarter of school. And I’m attempting NaNoWriMo this year. Attempting because I really haven’t had much time to write until one of my classes ended this past Friday. But I am really excited about my story. I think it will be good once it’s finished. I’m also still editing at Voluted Tales. That’s actually been a lot of fun. I’m glad to have had the opportunity to help out Mark Turner and the rest of the staff.
One big thing I have coming up is a blog tour I’m putting together to help showcase an awesome band. I’ve seen Skinn Jakkitt perform live a few times now and will happily go see them again. I love music and will gladly help showcase and promote good performers. Be sure to come back soon for a run down on the blog tour.
