Josh Gates is back!

I've enjoyed watching Gates and his antics clear back to when he was on Destination Truth on the Syfy channel.

The adventurer extraordinaire posted to his Facebook page on September 30, "One week from today...Expedition Unknown is BACK!" Fans enjoy his playful sense of fun and adventure and can't wait for the show's return. Read more here! http://www.examiner.com/article/josh-gates-returns-for-another-season-of-expedition-unknown

My Latest Book

So I'm almost finished with my third book, which is a book of zombie-themed short stories. The book will be titled "Tainted Ladies" and each story's prominent character is female. I'm pleased with the stories, a few could even be expanded into full novels. Will just have to see if that's something I want to do at a later time. Right now I'm so busy with writing for two news sites that I don't have much time for the book I'm doing now. I'm also watching my newest grandson four mornings a week.  Staying busy makes me happy though, so it's all good.

I want to finish this book before Halloween, it would be perfect timing, stay tuned to see if that is something I can accomplish. When it is finished, I'm planning on doing some big sales on the other books and who knows, I may have a little launch party. I am trying to dedicate the weekends to nothing but writing the stories.

Update on my writing

Late last September, I started doing some writing for a few sites - namely Examiner and Daily Two Cents. I write reality TV stories for one and for the other I just write about any TV show that's trending or one where there's a lot of interest. I've had a lot of fun with it so far, but it leaves little time for writing stories for my third book. I shelved the book for awhile, will probably finish it up around October. I have most of the stories fully or two-thirds finished for the book (I'm doing a collection of short stories with a zombie theme and the protagonist in each one is female). I do have one more story I want to write, however.

I've actually made some money writing TV news and like I said, I find it fun. Sometimes it's hard to find time to write since my daughter, son-in-law, 5-yr-old grandson, and infant grandson live with us right now (oh yeah, and their 100 lb chocolate lab, Buzz). I keep busy and I do like that, but sometimes it's hard to find the time.

I imagine things will slow down eventually and in the end I'll get everything done. I'm enjoying my family right now and some day I'll probably wish for these days again, when the boys were little and so much fun. So for now, that's how things are going, and the important stuff will always get done first. :D
