Phone Adventure

I’m at T-Mobile getting a replacement for my phone that went crazy and bricked my watch and now won’t text, connect to the internet or email. I have my iPad on T-Mobile already, but my phone is coming from another carrier. I’m also going to put my wife’s phone on this plan tomorrow. It’s just taking time to get it done.

Home For a Day

I’m home for the day. I’m enjoying spending time with my wife, and refreshing my exposure to my cat. I’ll spend several days sneezing, but it’s worth it.

I’m heading back down to Chattanooga for a change window at work.

I will enjoy the drive then prepare everything for the change.

All in all it’s been a very enjoyable day.

I’ve written this post using my iPad and doing voice dictation. Pretty cool isn’t it.

LibertyCon 3 Program Book

In the early years of LibertyCon, I worked at the convention, and I gave the editor of the program book a short story I’d written. It was my second short story to see ink.

The story was called “The South Shall Rise” and appears on pages 25-27.

I remember that the very first time someone asked me for an autograph, it was Klon Newell for that story.

Klon passed away this year. has a .PDF file of that program book available to view. You can find it under LibertyCon History, then the Past LibertyCons.

This year is the 30th LibertyCon. As of this month, they’re sold out.

I’m planning to go and sit out in the public area and see old friends.

I’m actually writing this from Chattanooga, Tennessee. I’m working on a contract at a company in Chattanooga that needs my skill set,  but my home is in Spring Hill with my wife, mother-in-law,  two cats and daily visits from my step-daughter and grandson.

Ive read science fiction since 1972. I’ve written Fantasy and Science Fiction since junior high school. I’ve been involved in Fandom since 1982.

My first two published stories appeared in unpaid fannish publications, and I’ve collected a few rejection slips for short fiction since.

This blog is to share and promote my current writing projects.
