I see that some of you are still occasionally dropping by this profile to see what I'm up to, so I thought I would drop by and leave you all a message. I'm really busy with writing projects these days, and if any of you are actually curious about what I've got cooking, I want to make sure you can all find me!
First of all, I regret to say I have no projects planned for the immediate future here on U-G. After four rock'n'roll novels (one of which was reeeeeally long), I don't have much steam left for the genre. I am however, helping another U-G writer with his current projects.
You may have heard of Van Hammersmith (http://profile.ultimate-guitar.com/Van+Hammersmith / ), who used to write the "Ask Van Hammersmith" humor/advice columns here on U-G. He now writes the column at his own little blog, http://askvanhammersmith.blogspot.com. I'm helping him out with that, because he's kind of an idiot with computers. I'm also helping him prepare a novel that he's working on, which will hopefully be available this summer. It's really dumb, but that's what Van is best at. It's about rock and roll, and aliens I think.
I'm working on a novel of my own as well. It's not rock, but it's a lot like my work from here on U-G: a sad loner who falls in love and tries win the girl of his dreams by doing great things. WARNING: this book will be extremely tacky, and will contain strippers, hockey, wrestling, drinking, a poet bird, a beautiful artist, nude chess, and a giant lizard. You have been warned.

Also, I've released a free sampler of short fiction which can be found at Smashwords. It's FREE. https://www.smashwords.com/books/view/406995.
Okay, that should hold you for now. When The bird novel comes out this summer I'll probably try and post something here on U-G to pimp it out.
