  • Break Time

    Forgive me, I know it has been forever since I've written a blog post. I've been working on publishing Migrators, and trying to sell Migrators, and failing to sell Migrators. It was the first book I put out in paperback, which was a fun learning experience. I need to sell about twenty times more paper copies before that learning experience...

  • Cha's Diary

    I was getting a guest room ready for this weekend (I'm expecting company) and I ran across my grandmother's diary. It's from 1920 when she was 10. It's not very long.   Charlotte G. Smith 185 North St. Salem, Mass   Pickering School -- Grade VII age 10 yrs   1920 June 24th - School closed. Left Miss Pickering's room to go into Miss Mullin's room (7th Grade)....

  • Too Many Books

    I've set a new pace for the novel I'm working on now. I'm writing at least 2,280 words/day. It's not a random number. When I started the book, I figured I wanted it to be about 100,000 words and I wanted it to be finished by November 1st. Once I did the math, I had my daily goal. I guess that means I set aside about 44 days for the book. I'm not...

  • Movie for One

    The last movie I saw alone was The Birdcage (1996). I sat down at the end of a row with my popcorn and soda and hoped to enjoy a fun movie to take me away from Maine winter for a couple of hours. Just after the previews started, I had to do that weird half-rise to let two people in. It was the president of the company I worked for and his wife....

  • Bread Like My Dad Likes

    Don't get me wrong--I don't think my dad has any particular fondness for this type of bread, but one time I made it and he said, "That's good bread." I happen to like this type of bread too. It's good calorie-counting bread. You have a little slice of it with some garlic spread and you're like, that couldn't have been more than a quarter of a...

  • Technology in Books

    I love a story with really interesting ideas. People will tell you that an interesting idea doesn't make for a good story--for a good story you need real characters that you care about. You need to watch these characters face challenges and grow (or shrink). They'll tell you that the story can't be good unless you have an emotional attachment to...

  • New Site

    As of this moment (Tuesday, May 28th, 2013), I've relaunched my website. I built this site using Joomla 3.0, and a handful of modules. Joomla isn't the most popular CMS (the most popular is either WordPress or Drupal), but I've got a lot of experience with it, so I find it easy to use. I've simplified my site quite a bit for the relaunch. I...

  • Hunting for a Story

    I've had a lot of luck lately with my third book, The Hunting Tree. The success it's having is unexpected, and so was the book itself. The two books I wrote before it (The Vivisectionist, and The Eight-Cell Stage) were fairly well-formed in my mind before I started writing them. At least the premise and the main event were formed; other...

  • Digging

    The most extraordinary thing just happened. You have to picture the setting. I was in outside in the yard at 10pm. This is the yard on the north side of my house. We're supposed to get a nor'easter overnight. In fact, it's already started. The wind was whistling through the trees and blowing light snow flurries through the beam of my headlamp. I...

  • Imagination

    In Maine, the winter brings slate-gray days that portend the coming snow. My grandmother used to say that the snow was falling because the ground was trying to match the sky. Mid-December, an afternoon lasts about fifteen minutes. Dark creeps in around the edges of the sky around 1pm, and it's dusk by 3:30.  It's easy to romanticize those cold...

  • Free Book

    On  Thursday, August 16th (2012), The Hunting Tree - Book One will be free on Amazon. I know what you're probably thinking: "Isn't this just a cheap ploy to get me to read the first book in a trilogy so I'll have to go buy the other two books?" Yes; yes it is. Well, it kinda is. To tell the truth, if you like the first book of Hunting Tree you...

  • Tractors, Women, and Lies

    I recently had the opportunity to help my aunt rebuild my tractor. Although we split the work—she did most of the grinding and I did most of the engine lifting—you'd have to classify it as her project. The tractor's frame sat in my basement for three years. During those three years, the blown engine and replacement engine rested up in the garage. After...

ikehamill @toddmoore Just listening--you keep saying you can't stream Amazon to Apple TV. You realize you can airplay from the streaming app, right?
ikehamill Has anyone watched the TNT adaptation of Nightmares and Dreamscapes? I just ordered the DVD (can't stream it). Sounds cool.
