Friday JohnKu – AKA – TGIF

“I think I’m going to take this lounge.” “Go. ahead but notice there’s no pillow.” “You’re right. What the heck?” “Complaints don’t work around here.” Friday has come. I can’t decide if the week’s been long or short. If you looked in yesterday you know Lucy went to the vet for a teeth cleaning. She […]

Thursday – A Little Personal – Lucy Visits the Dentist

“Hey Lucy. Why are you on the couch?” “I was at the dentist yesterday and am still recovering.” “Well I better keep watch for you then. I think the UPS person is due.” “Don’t worry Little One. I’m not in the mood to be barking him to St. Louis today. You’ll be on your own.” […]

Friday JohnKu – AKA – TGIF

  Another week in the history books. I hope it was a good one for you. As you may know, Gwen Plano and I are in the process of launching our collaboration titled The Contract. There will be a lot of information about the book during the launch, so there is no need in publishing […]

Age is as Age Does

I am busily working on my second novel. Well actually it is the third, but if you read the “About” page you will understand that my first is holding the laundry room door open. It is the printed first draft manuscript of my very first book and at 110,000 words it keeps the door from […]

Grumpy is as Grumpy Does

More research activity turned up an interesting article at Mental_Floss written by Stacy Conradt titled; 11 Authors Who Hated the Movie Versions of Their Books. I thought it interesting since there are listed some pretty good movies and some surprising reasons why the authors of the original story hated them.  Here is a recap of […]

Distraction is as Distraction Does

As a little distraction I thought I would post a piece of fiction that could, or could not, be in the flash fiction category depending on who you ask.  Some feel flash fiction is no more than two hundred and fiftywords and others consider under one thousand qualifies as flash.  The piece below is four hundred […]

Money is as Money Does

Needed a break in the story so I went to my trusty Google search engine and started looking up interesting facts about authors.(Gee that’s new)  The usual stuff came up like One Book Wonders, and Famous Author lists.  Not one to quite early; I kept going until I found an article written in Forbes magazine.  […]

Wonder is as Wonder Does

  The weather in South Texas took a turn to the cold at the beginning of the week.  Cold being defined as in the forties from previous seventy degree highs.  A couple of things happen when this time of year comes around.  The first is; we all wrap up like we live in the Yukon.  […]
