Five Thing Thursday

This week, I’m going to launch what I hope is going to be a regular thing on the blog. I’m calling it “Five Thing Thursday.”

Five Thing Thursday is where I post about five things that I want you to know.

Why Thursday? I like the alliteration.

Here are five things I want you to know:

Thing #1:

Two Questions With…

Beginning on June 11th, I and some other authors will be kicking off a blog tour called Two Questions With…

For the next three weeks, we’ll each be answering two questions on each other’s blogs and it’ll be a great time.

Who are the other authors, you ask?

They are:

Janet Walden-West

Pat Esden

Anne Raven

What questions will we be answering? Well, you’ll just have to tune in and find out.

Here’s the schedule:

June 11th – Janet Walden-West and I, and Pat Esten and Anne Raven.

June 18th – Pat Esden and I, and Janet Walden-West and Anne Raven.

June 25th – Anne Raven and I, and Pat Esden and Janet Walden-West.


Thing #2:

My agent-sibling, Karen Osborne, sold a story titled “The Blanched Bones, The Tyrant Wind” to Fireside Fiction earlier this week.

It’ll be coming out later this year – and will probably be making another appearance on Five Thing Thursday. Don’t wait to check them out. Future You will be happy with Present You.

Thing #3:

I just started listening to the audio book of Bruce Dickinson’s autobiography titled, “What Does This Button Do?”

The book is read by the author and, while I can’t claim to be the biggest Iron Maiden fan in the world, I am very interested in hearing about how successful creatives got to be where they are.

And damn, but Bruce is entertaining.


If you’re into Power Metal at all, you should check out Beast in Black. I discovered them not too long ago and they’ve been making my toes tap for a couple of days now.

Thing #5:

The SOLO movie was a lot of fun. There were moments, little flashes, really scattered through the film that pinged off my nostalgia/established knowledge of Star Wars in general, but you could be completely ignorant of all things Star Wars and still enjoy this movie. Go see it.
