I’ve mentioned before about how I’m considering renting an office space. Having a place to go each day would probably be a big boon to my productivity. It would also be a huge detriment to my bank account. Because of that, I’m changing some things around in my home office to see if I can achieve more at the house.
That process started today. The first thing I did was purchase a motorized standing desk. Sitting down constantly for the past fifteen years hasn’t done me any good. I’m hoping to split my writing and advertising times between sitting and standing. With any luck, moving around a bit more will keep me from getting so damn tired around the middle of the day. It will arrive on Tuesday, so I might have it for Final Guys that night, depending on how late it gets here.
Podcasting while standing is intriguing. We’ll see.
I also bought an air conditioning unit for the window of my office. During the summer, the heat in that room gets insane, particularly if I’ve spent the entire day in there with a computer or two running. If skin has a boiling point, I’m probably approaching it in there during the dregs of July.
Unfortunately, when I’m running an air conditioner and my video editing PC at the same time, the breakers in my house complain. Gonna have to get an electrician in here for some upgrades. $$$. But that will keep me from having to move my desktop PC to the basement during the summer. Having a year round space I can go in, and close the door to minimize distractions, should make a difference in the time I devote to writing.
Or it’ll just be a big waste of money.
I’ll let you know on here.
I’m also removing a futon that takes up too much space, buying a recliner to write/nap in, and throwing out some clutter. Will any of this help? Probably not, but it’ll make me enjoy the space more. I dunno. I’m going to drink beer.
This morning, I wrote 1042 words in the untitled sixth book in The Hunger. I have company arriving in about five minutes, so that’s all the output for today.
For episode 25, horror author Jasper Bark had to eschew biting off chicken heads to settle for sipping some whiskey with me. Jasper is hilarious and was a blast to chat with. We discussed the genre hopping he has done over the years, his work in graphic novels, and a whole lot more. This was one of my favorite episodes to record.
For episode 23, we did something a bit different. I sat down with reader of mine, the hilarious Beka Cain, and had her ask me a bunch of reader-submitted questions. Our connection was terrible, so I had to heavily edit the episode, but I think it came out pretty damn fun nonetheless.
I’ll likely do more of these in the future, so let me know if you’re interested in having a video chat with me.
Asher’s War (Asher Benson #3)
Finally, Asher’s War is live. The paperback will be available shortly. I’ll send out another email when it is up on Amazon. Get your ebook here:
And here is the blurb:
Asher Benson has been living on the outskirts of society for years. After surviving a devastating terrorist attack in the mountains of West Virginia, he abandons a life of solitude to rejoin a fight he thought was long behind him. Drowning in survivor’s guilt and plagued by the death and destruction that always follows him, Ash dedicates himself to finding the terrorists responsible for destroying an entire town.
When a new threat arises in Washington D.C., the entire nation descends into chaos. With a team assembled from retired Special Forces warriors, the snarky Nami, and the ever-vigilant Drew, Ash goes in search of the man who brought the country to its knees.
I hope you love it! After you’ve finished reading, please consider leaving a review where you purchased it. Amazon, Apple, and all of the others will help to promote a book if it has a lot of reviews so I need your help! We can spread Ash and Nami’s snark far and wide. Happy reading!
Because Asher’s War is going to release soon, I thought it would be fun to give you a chance to ask me any question you might have about any topic. Ask me anything in the comments of this post and I’ll try to answer it in video and audio.
There will be a twist though… I’m going to have a reader ask me the questions. This should be fun. I’m gonna call up said reader on the interwebz and we’re gonna have a Q&A. So any question you thought would be funny will be extra hilarious because a nervous reader will have to ask me.
If this is as fun as I think it will be, I’ll do it again with another reader for my next book.
You read that right. The audiobook for my short story, Big Bob, is completely free. Why? Cause I think you’re the shit. This was read by Gregory Shinn, so thanks to him for letting me post this sucker here for free. If you’re an author looking for a narrator for your audiobook, you can find him here at ACX.
You can also check it out on YouTube. Subscribe to my channel while you’re there. I have some really cool stuff going up there soon.
I have teamed up with the inimitable Wayne June once again for the Asher Benson series. If you’ve heard his readings of The Hunger, then you understand why I had to beg him to work with me again. There is no one on the planet who gets my style more than The King of All Mullets.
You have to hear this performance. Utterly incredible. No bullshit. Check it out on Amazon, Audible, and iTunes. Here’s the description:
9 AM EST: A senator shoots himself on national television.
10:32 AM EST: An entire floor of government agents leap to their death from their office building.
12:57 PM EST: All the police officers inside a station murder each other.
And the day has just begun.
Lieutenant Asher Benson left Iraq with a traumatic brain injury, PTSD, and a Purple Heart. His doctors warned that the symptoms would be life altering. They had no idea. As his body healed, the thoughts of those around him began to echo through Ash’s mind, stretching the boundaries of his sanity.
Five years later, Ash is drowning the voices with copious amounts of booze and self-loathing.
When unidentified intelligence agents abduct him in broad daylight, Ash is thrust into a world of espionage and assassinations. A unique terrorist is operating on U.S. soil, and the government needs Ash, and the malady that has plagued him for half a decade, to find the killer.
*Ash is the first book in the Asher Benson thriller series, which is full of snarky humor and nonstop action.
