The #Disqus Comments Turned On

Disqus Commenting, turned on.

Awesome indeed.

I’ve been meaning to do this for a while now. However it wasn’t until my host upgraded my WordPress that I finally gave in and decided to go ahead with this upgrade.

Well, see ya’ later!

#100WordChallenge Update: Extending The Break

Due to the poor performance of my GoFundMe Campaign, I am going to have to extend my break a month to further work on my book until May 2nd (which is actually my birthday).

The idea was the finish it up, polish it, and then get it to an editor for grammar/spelling clean up. I would then get a cover and Kindle formatting thrown in, all for a one time $1,000 fee. It is not a bad deal when you consider that most editors and cover makers online nickel and dime your ass. It was a one-stop-shop made of awesomeness. Sadly it was not meant to be.

Now I am going to have sit down and go over the book a 2nd/3rd time without the benefit of fresh set of eyes. I also have to pray I get the Kindle formatting right. Both editing and formatting is sadly going to take time away from me creatively. And now I have to take time to shop around for a book cover. All time I don’t have.

Now I’m not mad nor I am going to cry “unfair” to the world. Some people did donate and I very grateful. Others didn’t see the value in my work and I am not going to bitch to them. Sure I am disappointed with all the crowdfunding money being thrown around, but whatever. I am also going to leave the GoFundMe campaign up for the next month. If I can get to the $1,000 somehow, all the better.

I was going to post this yesterday, but to be on the safe side I didn’t want anyone thinking that this is an April Fool’s Day joke.

Well, see ya’ later!

#100WordChallenge Update: Taking A Break

I am suspending further 100-Word Challenge posts until April 4th.

This is because those posts are draining my creative abilities and I really need to re-focus my efforts on my book from last NaNoWriMo. I have also found that I have to make a post in-between these entries, because own personal my OCD wants me to seperate these 100-Word Challenge posts. So to combat the mental break I feel coming on, I need a little help by taking a break from the grind.

This does not mean that I will not post any blog posts, just that I no longer feel that I HAVE to. I will also resume the 100-Word Challenge posts on April 4th, even if I have not yet finish my book.

Well, see ya’ later!

Ending “The Swamp” Podcast

I have been thinking about this for a couple of days now, but it is with a heavy heart that I think I will be ending the podcast. I am notifying my current co-host now. Kat has been an absolute doll and I highly recommend her.

The reasons are clear to me. To be brutally honest, everyone and their brother is doing a podcast. No one is banging down my door to be on my podcast, I can’t even get a single candidate running for office to commit. And I want to focus on my writing.

I am, however, going to produce five more podcasts to bring the total number to 50 podcasts. They will still be available for download long after I end the podcast. Who knows, maybe I’ll come back for special podcasts in the future.

While I want to stay fast and lose with when and who will be guests on the last five podcasts, but I really would like the following people to email me to schedule a time when best suits for you:

Laura Fillault

Sooper Mexican

Tania Gail

Red Eye Robot

Susie Moore

Don’t think of this as an ending, this is just a new beginning. As soon as the last podcast is over with, I will be starting a crowdsourcing campaign to get my book self-publish.

Well, see ya’ later!

Looking For Temp 2nd Co-Host For June/July

I am not getting rid of Texas Transplant, but I want to add a 2nd co-host for the summer slow down. I would prefer a woman, only because it is already two guys on the podcast.

We record Thursday mornings at around 10:30 AM Eastern Time. The only requirement I have is that you are a conservative or libertarian, have Skype (it’s free), and that you have an opinion. Email me if you want to talk.

Well, see ya’ later!
