Think Global, Blog Local…

One of the attractions of blogging is the potential to reach viewers around the world. (And if my friend Tom’s blog is any indication, that reach isn’t limited to this planet.) After you write for a few years, though, you realize, there are many opportunities to inform readers close to home, and these options are […]

World’s Quickest Bar Guide, Now Available For Kindle

It’s the publishing event you’ve all been waiting for! The Chile Underground is pleased to announce that our sister organization, White Jade Books, has finally gotten off the dime produced its first electronic book concerning food and drink: The World’s Quickest Bar Guide, exclusively for Amazon’s Kindle. If you’re a Prime customer with Amazon you […]

It’s Wednesday, and I’m About to Join the e-Published…

I’ve got a short cookbook about ready for publication. Not as a paper item, though; for the Amazon Kindle. I’m trying that out first, to learn the ropes and see how it goes. Once I know more about exact publication date, etc., I’ll let you know so you can get a bajillion copies and vault […]

New Site Up! (Arguably It’s About Food, Someday)

Okay, it’s not anything to do with food, unless I write a mystery that involves cooking. (Now there’s an idea; hmmm…) No, this is the newest, and soon to be the best, boutique site about novel writing on the whole InterTubes: The Accidental Novelist. The plan is for plenty of blog posts, of course. […]

Down to the Wire…

Well, we gave it a full-throttle run. Scared them Crabs clean back into the ocean. But no, we didn’t beat them. Closed the gap and gave them fair warning not to mess around with penguins who know how to type one-flippered (since our other one’s busy holding onto our martini glass). Truth is, we […]

Trying to Win One for the Team, at the Last Minute

It’s almost midnight; do you know who your children are? Or where you live? Or what you’ve eaten the last few days? O when you last changed your lucky shirt? If you answer “I don’t know” to these, then you’re fully immersed in the NaNoWriMo Challenge. And making steps. Or in this case, words…

Yes, […]

NaNoWriMo Needs YOU! Well, Really, It Needs Me…

The Crabs are trying to run away with our olive. (It’s a long story, believe me.) We Lushguins can’t let that happen! So a group of us have made a secret pact (unfortunately, in a public chat room) to add to our original writing goals. Since I’m basically done with the 105,000 words, I’m […]

Starting the Big Week on NaNoWriMo

Ah, better living through chemistry! Whatever is in those new drugs, they work. I feel So Much Better you can’t believe it. (Heck, I can’t believe it.) This will be my chance to break through and see how close to on-target I can get from here. Next week the Holidays will interfere; minor things […]
