After two+ weeks at my new job, June has flown by. Finding time to write, work out, spend time with the baby, and do all the other things I want to do is harder than ever, but I think I’m doing alright. Continue reading “July Write Day: Finding A New Routine”
Varied stone layers
make the ground appear all too
Not merely a yard,
a secluded wilderness
of unbounded dreams.
The house I grew up in, where my pup Teddy loved to run around in the backyard, has been sold. I took him there on Friday to have one final romp through his favorite squirrel-hunting grounds.
Wood smoke soothes the chill
air weighed by rain not fallen,
a place I once knew.
So January is here, guys. I feel like I was well aware of this three days ago, but some little gremlin flew in on his RC plane and took that kernel of knowledge from my brain, and I’ve just know re-remembered it.Continue reading “Friday Write-Day: In which I Forget What Month It Is”

Austin L. Wiggins of https://writingsbyender.com was kind enough to post a review of The Warden of Everfeld: Memento on his site!
Go check it out, and his other book reviews, short fiction, thought pieces.
My favorite line from his review: “This book is deeply layered and impressively self-accurate.”
Centering on Aston the young adult, his love interest Jaed, and Arden the last and lost line to a powerful lineage, The Warden of Everfeld: Memento is a vibrant fantasy novel. Aston is nineteen years old and wants nothing more than to be a soldier like his father was before him, but has trouble being seen as anything more than a trainee. Jaed is Arden’s caretaker/adoptive big sister. All of them live in a place called the Refuge, called so because it consists of different clans of people whom sought shelter after various wars in the area. In Steven D’Adamo’s tale, Aston must decide allegiance between either his home the Refuge or his love Jaed and Arden.
This book is deeply layered and impressively self-accurate. Within the context of the story, is an in-depth look at this world’s history from creation to current times, but at no point in time…

Sci-fi author Luther M Siler let me write a guest post for his website, which is pretty awesome. Have a look-see and check out his books. I’d be happy to have a fraction of the following he does. (Maybe just a slightly bigger fraction than currently. )
Thank you Luther!
At least one guest post today and tomorrow, as brain melt starts to set in. Steve’s good people. Be nice.

For Whom Do You Write? (Hint: it always changes!)
Most of us say that we only write for ourselves, that it doesn’t matter how the outside world perceives our stories because we poured our hearts…
