The Generalist Fanart. :D

So freakin' Emperor Karsa himself (the man behind Karsiel) drew this recently during the Internuggetathon. :D

This is just...freakin' glorious.  Like he seriously captured Frank in his prime moment.

Liquid, distilled rebellion yo.  The man is the literal physical avatar of "No."

If the word that begat all existence is "Ohm," then the word that begat Frank is "No."


Enjoy the greyscale version too~!

Fuck your tea too!

(NOTE: I'll post up Karsa's blog once I get his permission. :D )

Ugh.  So it's time to finally get to overhaulin' the blogs.  While I've been busy enough to kill three men, I haven't even had a chance to blog the way I want to.

With THAT stated, I'm gonna overhaul the site design first.

Just sayin', I've FOUND what I want, but it's the implementation...

Anyway, I'm lookin' forward to 2014.  There's a lot going on in my life, and I'm looking forward to making my blogging be a part of that life again.

It's been fun as fuck sharing all these different aspects of my life, myself, with all of you (you five who have read me through thick and thin over these coupla years), and I look forward to keeping it up, even sporadically, in the coming coupla years. :D

With THAT stated, while the blogs have been down I've been busy as hell on Faecbawks.  First there was the Launch Party for Taboo's 1 and 2, and now The Generalist Fundraiser and Internuggetathon.

It is a telethon.

Of the Internuggets.

Here's some of the messages  I've been bandying about, and I'll make sure to post the reading videos here too.  I've been told I've got "that narrator voice," but truth be told I was rather embarrassed reading in front of a camera.

Oh well, I'm certain I'll get over it sometime.

SO, come on down and check it out:

The Fundraiser and Internuggetathon:

SO, the lovely and talented Ella Dominguez just hit a nigga up~!  Since I've never really DONE a blog hop, I guess I'll take a stab at it now~?

SO, without further adieu:

1. What are you working on right now?
The Generalist - Taboo 4: Angle of the Angels.  This one's kinda "that one" for me - my very first write-up of the boys was the Battle at Brownstone segment, posted here waaaay back when.  Since then I've written four novellas, five really...and three short stories completed.  Now it's just a matter of editing them, getting the covers done, and getting a computer that can keep up with my hyper typing speed.

Pretty soon my entire crew is going to hate my guts, but on the plus side I'll be able to blog legitimately again all across the board.

Won't that be fun~?

2. How does it differ from other works in its genre?
It doesn't.  No, it really doesn't.

I'm not saying I'm formulaic, but you can pretty much guarantee that I'm going to write up some awesome scenes of over-the-top violence, vulgar displays of power, and people being badassed. There's always the chance that any of the main characters can die simply due to the high level of attacks and violence that's being committed - it's just the kind of stuff I write.

Killer 13 is a bit more straightforward in it's over-the-top, brutal violence but there's also a beautiful kind of...grace to it too.

 3. Why do you write what you do?
Why do I breathe?

Why are you asking me that question?

What are you, some kind of CIA spy?  You a government spy?


4. How does your writing process work?
I read recently that writers can be classified as engineers (drafting it out carefully and following the lines) or gardeners (loving attention, watering, feeding, gettin' dirty but lettin' it grow on it's own).

I'm honestly somewhere in between - I utilize skeletal structures and chapter overviews, then just go wild from there.  It's like I start drafting out this carefully-plotted thing...then just start drawing all over the whole damn thing when it's time to start writing.

I then go back to architect mode and make sure everything is good to go, sometimes ignoring details or whateverhaveyou from the initial designs or re-writing/writing in scenes to fill in plot holes and ensure that the flow of the storyline is up to my standard.

If it's all good, then I send it off to my editor (Adele Symonds - and bothering my cover artist Jade to gettin' stuff goin'. :D  She's usually already got shots done far before then, but it's all part of the process, y'know?

Anyway, I tag NO ONE because I'm at work and have to get this done. :3

Why hello there~!

Egads, when did I get over 10k views?

Where the unholy fuck was >I< when this happened?!!!! D:

For what it's worth, I thank you, all of ya~!  Obviously SOMEONE'S readin' me...just don't know who. ::chuckles:: SO!  Here we are...

and I've been incredibly abusive towards you guys, ignoring you for months on end then figuring you'll either see me in your feed and be all, "OH!  It's That Bastard, Thomas Duder himself...let's see what he has to say!" then read me and be all, "OHHHHH, you poor, poor man!  Yes, I forgive you, and I'll totally read on your stuff and click things and comment, cmment, comment!"

Well, while I DOOOOO have material to post (new songs, new poetry, written blocks of "things" and full-blown short stories and such), I've had to seriously settle in and handle my writing.

I'm fairly certain I've mentioned this before, but I write on a ten-year old rig with Windows XP (service pack 3, derp) and OpenOffice.  Even before I started working at an office with a rather fast system, I was having problems with having multiple programs open (as I'm wont to do), the whole system slowing down if I even DARED to have even Windows Media Player running while OpenOffice was, and...well, you get the point.

There is nothing worse to my writing style then having to wait while my system decides whether or not Firefox should be allowed to open while I have OpenOffice up simply because I dared to want to look up a word, or a thesaurus, or...whatever!  Hell, sometimes the system stalls out just with OpenOffice open, and being a poor once-homeless writer isn't inexactly the best thing for the financials.

...then there was that, being homeless for, like, ten months.  Then nine months before THAT I was stuck in that cabin, and...well, we all (possibly) remember THAT 'un.

So anyway, here we are.  I have, since, had to make a coupla decisions, and comin' back to bloggin' with NO SET SCHEDULE (because fuck yo dreams, nigga) is one of those.  Another is that I'm no longer going to post either Killer 13 or The Generalist here....BUT!  If yer one of my readers here on the blog scene and ya wanna become a beta reader, there's ways we can do that. :D  Hit me up sometime, I'll give ya the links or whatever, and we'll talk on Faecbawks. <3

On the other hand, I AMMMMM gonna post the reviews I do for other books right here. :3  Because why not...the first couple of them are pretty short, but afterwards?

Fucking genius, as entertaining as the books themselves, and it was fun as hell writin' 'em. :D

Nooooow, there ARRRRRE a couple of books I had to NOT review, just 'cuz...yeah, I had to stop readin' 'em they were so bad.  If you haven't heard from me in awhile, it may be because your book sucks and you suck and I hate your fucking face and I never want to talk to you again.

When I say "awhile" I mean, literally, awhile~!  Not, like, a coupla months or whatever, I mean like I don't even hang out at the same fucking groups as you because you've dirtied them with your horrible writing and blase personality.

....of course, that's all on Faecbawks, but you get the point. :3

So anyway, lemme pop one on here soon, starting with my first and from a fellow blogger nonetheless~!

Hell, it's those two bastards whom I have to actually thank for quite a lot...and do so with each book I put out there. :3

SO!  Shall we enjoy this Sunday together?
