Blogs & Recs

Blog: Notion Potion - A Stiff Shot of Inspiration, premiered at Reviews by Jessewave. We're all creative in some aspect of our lives, and many of us would love to be MORE creative!

Come read the first column, One Sip at a Time, and get inspired to reach your goal with steps so small you'll hardly know you're taking them!

You can still leave comments for me on that post, and I'll get an email letting me know to come respond to the thread. This column will run the first Wednesday of the month.

Rec: Make it Fast, Cook it Slow - I don't think I've ever seen a cookbook in which so many recipes appealed to me. Click here to find it on Amazon. This book was originally a blog. (Also, it's gluten-free) Tried two recipies, so far so good. The Amazon reviews are all complaining about the recipes being bland...how bizarre! This Rotisserie-Style Chicken was yum, yum, yum. White Chili, also tasty.

Maybe people just feel empowered when they complain. Or something like that. To me, crock pot cooking is more about cheap & fuss-free comfort food than an explosion of exotic flavors on my tastebuds.

Flying High...

Dear reader,

I had so much fun posting The Starving Years and Magic Mansion to the newsletter! But I'd been itching to find time to get back to my regular series, since PsyCop readers are climbing the walls.

The craftSo, I began thinking about making my monthly freebie shorter, and also more widely available so it might draw in new readers. I reasoned that if I could produce it in three days per month, that would leave me almost four weeks to work on my "regular" stuff.

I had an idea for a fluffy series of short, punchy novelettes about what might happen in the Bermuda Triangle, and Turbulence is the resulting series...and, wouldn't you know, it's not fluffy to write at all. The research for it has been insanely demanding and it's easily as time-consuming as anything else I've ever written.

The Dashboard

However...the research has been fun! To get myself a jump start in aviation, I went up in the little red prop plane pictured above and took a spin over Madison. There's one of the lakes I mentioned in Mnevermind. Plus a wing, with a valve-thing underneath. Or maybe a light. Actually, I believe it's an airspeed sensor, now that I look at it. Anyway, you probably don't want me flying you anywhere unless it's the zombie apocalypse and there's no one else left alive to attempt it...

The lakes

The instructor had me actually fly the plane, by the way. And not just taking the yoke for a few seconds once we were already in the air, either. He made encouraged me to do the takeoff, ascent and all the turns. Holy hell.

While the majority of my brain was going, "Eeeek!" and the tower sounded like "blah blah blah" I think I managed to pick up a lot of details and ambience from the experience that I wouldn't have been able to glean from a book or a website.

Into the Bermuda TriangleWhich is not to imply that books don't have their uses. The book Your Pilot's License that I checked out from the library is full of creepy handwritten right-wing political ranting in the margins...which is inspiring in its own icky way.

I hope you enjoy Turbulence 1: Into the Bermuda Triangle, and encourage all your m/m-loving friends to give it a whirl. It's available on JCP Books and Amazon at the moment, and should be winging its way to several online retailers via Smashwords distribution channels shortly. (Find out about the making of the cover on my LiveJournal)

Mnevermind 1

THE PERSISTENCE OF MEMORY

The Persistence of MemoryEvery day, Daniel Schroeder breaks his father’s heart.

While forgetting your problems won’t solve them, it does seem like it would make life a heck of a lot easier. Daniel thought so once. Now he knows better. He and Big Dan have always been close, which makes it all the more difficult to break the daily news: the last five years were nothing like his father remembers.

They’re both professionals in the memory field—they even run their own memory palace. So shouldn’t they be able to figure out a way to overwrite the persistent false memory that’s wreaking havoc on both of their lives? Daniel thought he was holding it together, but the situation seems to be sliding out of control. Now even his own equipment has turned against him, reminding him he hasn’t had a date in ages by taunting him with flashes of an elusive man in black that only he can see.

Is it some quirk of the circuitry, or is Daniel headed down the same path to fantasy-land as his old man?

JCP on Pinterest

New readers may not know my background is in visual art and I create my own cover art and book design. In fact, having control over my covers and typography was one of the main reasons I began self-publishing in 2007.

I'll be blogging more about the art process on LiveJournal (here's a post on the cover of Turbulence 1 deconstructed) and you can also follow these posts on Pinterest.

(And right now I'm putting this newsletter together in newly released Dreamweaver CS6 - oh, the geektastic joy! CS6! Yay! Seems smoother and more responsive than 5.5, plus my settings all transferred automatically.)

May's Freebie

Turbulence 1: Into the Bermuda Triangle
With his scheduled flight grounded, First Officer Paul Cronin finds himself torn between a rendezvous with a handsome flight attendant and a new assignment on Flight 511.

He discovers the replacement flight is a quick trip to Bermuda that will allow his date to proceed as planned, and it seems as if his weekend is falling right into place, despite the passengers’ apprehensions over crossing the Bermuda Triangle.
