On Authoring

I encountered some haters over at Amazon today. Why do I comment? Yeah, I’m not sure. ( I was looking at GRRM’s book, The Wit and Wisdom of Tyrion Lannister ) I’m also hearing a lot about how people are refusing to pay to see Ender’s Game. It certainly makes sense to not give money to someone if you think they are a vile person. ( But let’s look at this rationally… ) Chances are, every movie ever made has at least one person…

Website 2.0

My website is revamped.I think it’s nice. Clicky! In other news, I’m beyond stressed at how hard it is to convert my beautiful magazine layouts to epubs and mobi. Apparently, Adobe thinks a Page Break command would make exporting far too easy.Hell, I’d pay their stupid monthly fee if it meant I could just tell it where to break the page by drawing a line with the stupid arrow. Fuck!

Website

I am told that my new website will be Up and Atom on Saturday, which is tomorrow. It’s a WordPress site, which is the same kind of site roughly 3/4 of the writers I know have. Except this one will be about good ol’ me.You’ll be able to find it the same place as ever:wednesdayleefriday.com In addition to hyping the books, it will feature the old podcast eps, the comics I did for Resilient Brainforest, and the various mags and…

Real Time with Wednes

I had a dream that Bill Maher got assassinated and HBO invited me to take over the show. They also wanted me to write the new season of True Blood, but I said no because it was too late to save that crapshack. Imagine all the cool people I’d get to meet if I hosted Real Time. It would only be kind of offset by the number of complete and utter asshats I’d have to endure. My new website should…

A Breath of Fresh Air

Since I started freelancing from home, I don’t go out much. In fact, one could say that I go out very rarely. After all, people are jerks. Outside is expensive and loud and causes cancer on my pasty white skin. I go for walks when the weather is not being dumb–usually between 4 and 7 in the morning. Plenty of people wasted no time in telling me how “unhealthy” it is that I stay inside. Don’t I know that D…

“Slimdown” causes strife for people who should have thought of that before…

Big political news means that, if I remain on social media, that I’ll be reminded over and over which people I went to school with/used to work with/am peripherally related to are fucking batshit insane. I have a cousin who supported Citizens United because she honestly believes that money and speech are the same thing. That if we limit the businesses right to give unlimited money to politicians–that we’re taking away their right to free speech. I…I still have no…

Fascinating…please DO go on!

Did I ever tell you that offering critique on short story submissions can make an editor come across as a know-it-all bitch? Because nobody told me…until recently.Bahahahahahaa– *sigh* I’m finding this to be a tricky issue to navigate. Someone advised me once that when people submit stories, that they’re asking for my input and critique. That seems logical. At the same time, authors might just want their stuff published in our mag. So once I say no, they might not…

Meanwhile, back at Wednes’ place:

After this mornings unpleasantness, I wallowed in my complainy-pants sadness for a few hours.Then I took a nap. When I woke up, I had some loving and supportive voicemails, texts, and Emails from friends and family. That was swell, really. When I went back over to the Barnes & Noble site, the link was up. Under the Bed: Volume 2 Number 1, bitches! Undead October is full of awesome zombie stories, some cool editorials, our fanciful Letters to the Editor…

October, Yo!

It’s the moooost wonderful tiiiiime, of the yeeeeaaarr! Once again, I don’t actually have any Halloween plans.I’m still too busy with the mag, reviews, Kinkly, and SEO clients to plan anything major. Speaking of which…What has become the Undead October issue is coming out in a few days. I’m still pretty bummed about skipping a month, but if what I am told is correct–it will allow us to have a predictable issue release schedule from now on. The November issue…
