No, not THAT Labyrinth!  I mean, sure, great movie and all that.  It’s just not what I’m referring to.  You understand, don’t you, Bowie?

No need to get sassy.  You’re just going to have to take a back seat this time.

Don’t give me that look.  The old “Pomeranian eyes” may work with the ladies, but I know better.  Skedaddle, Bowie.  Git!

No, no.  It’s too late for gifts, no matter how much I like shiny balls.

That is NOT what I meant by shiny balls.  Put that thing away and let me get on with my post.  Freakin’ David Bowie.

Sorry about that folks.  Bowie is always popping up where he isn’t wanted

Some of you (like one or two) may have noticed I’ve been gone for the bulk of November.  I haven’t been purposefully neglecting my blog.  Oh, far from it.  The truth of the matter is I’ve been lost in a labyrinth.  It’s a dark place, and I’m afraid I’m  hopelessly lost.  In fact, it wasn’t until yesterday that I had a breakthrough, thanks to the amazing Cate Gardner.  You see, she sent a little twitter message.

When my phone buzzed in my pocket, I screamed like a little girl.  Now, I’m no dope.  I checked for cell service a long time ago.  Little did I know, however, there is a faint wifi signal here in the labyrinth (hence my finally being able to update the blog), and Cate’s message alerted me to this!  Better still, I’ve found that I can use the wifi signal as something of a compass, going in the direction of increasing signal strength.  It’s only a matter of time now.

Since I don’t know when I’ll next have a strong enough signal to broadcast to you, my loyal followers, I have decided to make an announcement:

Within the next two months, I will release my first ebook short story collection, Welcome to Moon Hill.  It will contain over a dozen never before seen stories and one or two reprints of favorites.  Be cautious if you do decide to accompany me to Moon Hill, because like entering the labyrinth, you may never leave.

    Wow!!! Well done you! I’ve just published my first. It’s all very exciting! Now, on the topic of the labyrinth…do you need some string?

    • DRC says:

      Actually, forget the string. I’ll just take David Bowie. I don’t mind shiny balls at all… 😉

      • Ha! Oh, you have a new book out!? *Skitters off to your site*

    Holy wow ‘it’ speaks! Hiya, glad you made an entry to solidify November. I might owe you an email, never sure in this dark realm of holiday forgetfulness. In any case nice to see you’re alive and well. If you need directions through the labyrinth, drop an email and I’ll send a hob goblin your way. I never got the Bowie appeal, besides the shiny balls that is (winks). (Hugs) Indy

    • 🙂 I could use a hobgoblin by now. Oh yes, one post at the beginning of November and one at the end. What happens in between doesn’t matter. :-p

  3. I just figured you were suffering from a post-Halloween sugar crash. Regardless, I look forward to checking out Moon Hill!

    • Thanks! I think being burnt out from October is what led to my inevitable loss of direction in this expanse of maze.

  4. Cate Gardner says:

    Someone has been busy compiling stuff… that explains it.

  5. E.Arroyo says:

    Yeah, I thought you were getting down from your Halloween high. =)
    By the way…you are the winner of my 200 followers contest. Send me an email where you’d like me to send you your cha-ching. elizabeth.arroyo5@gmail.com

  6. Yeah, I just thought you were taking a break after the October sugar high. =)

    By the way…you are the winner of my 200 followers contest. Send me an email you’d like me to use to send you your cha-ching. elizabeth.arroyo5@gmail.com

    • Whoa, really!? Very cool. 🙂 Sorry it took a while for your comment to appear. For some reason it goes to my spam filter.

      • Elizabeth Arroyo says:

        LOL. Yeah, I noticed it didn’t come up the first time. =)

  7. Katey says:

    Ahahahaha I am alllll for Bowie in random places. (Though seriously, he needs to put that batch away. Urgh.)

    I’m so excited about the collection! I will be in line for sure 😀

    • Thanks, Katey! I really need to put some work into it over the holiday so I can actually release it. :-p
