Welcome to Texas, we’re in frantic preparations for the possible “Icemeggedon” that could occur on Friday. The Dallas/Fort Worth area of Texas isn’t quite as bad as Birmingham was when I lived there. Here there’s just a run on water, milk, bread, firewood – you know the essentials. In Birmingham, that threat induced grocery frenzy […]
Ah, yes, Wednesday. The day in which I try to come up with something pithy (or at the VERY, Very least coherent) about writing, the publishing industry, or some other aspect of this business. And… yeah. Coherent is about as good as I’m going to get today. It’s been a busy week. Amazon is still […]
