The Day

The door of yesterday’s battle continued the fight into the office. And at one point it bit Allyson, but she is all right.

The door will find a home shortly, but there may be more fight left in that slab of wood yet.

Patreon Supporters and Smith’s Monthly Subscribers

As planned, I got a recent issue of Smith’s Monthly out to subscribers and up on Patreon. The next issue should be out to subscribers and up on Patreon tomorrow, and then with luck, the third issue in this run will be on Monday.

And so far the luck is with us. So expect another issue tomorrow.


Topic of the Night: Nope

The day was spent running errands and then working in the store until almost midnight. Only five more days. Tonight I hung mint-in-pack Star Trek figures, Alien figures, X-Files figures, and moved about a hundred different ornate boxes of various sizes.

My plan is to get back to writing at full steam on the 26th. But between now and then I will also be working on workshop stuff.


Online Workshops

June online workshops all have openings, including the new Teams in Fiction workshop. We are halfway though the month. The list in June is a good one and so is the list in July. And note the July workshops don’t start until well after the 4th.

    Dean you’re killing me!! MIP Star Trek figures? This store sounds like the coolest place ever.

    The more you write about that door, the more it becomes a character … or the MacGuffin for a horror movie, “The Door – When It Opens, The Screaming Begins”.
