I believe in a future where I
will be able to write full-time, a picture I already hold vividly in my
mind. It all starts with my debut young adult novel, Provex City. I love
Harry Potter & The Marbury Lens, Tool & Elliott Smith, Dexter
& Donnie Darko, bold coffee & amber ale. I also love dabbling
with writing music and recording, with no illusions of ever making it a
career. I am ecstatically married and the lucky father to a beautiful

Is it just me, or is each month flying by faster and faster. This week I'll finally finish everything for the SUSY Asylum blog tour, which starts on October 14th. I wanted to be done with all the posts by the 1st of the month, so I didn't quite make that, but I'm close and I'll take that as a win.
I am so anxious for the tour to begin--I haven't been this nervous in awhile. There are quite a few blogs signed up to give reviews...and I'm terrified for the responses. SUSY Asylum is longer, darker, and less restrained than Provex City. I feel like I held back a little with Provex City, but with SUSY Asylum, I went for it with everything I had. I'm spending too much time fidgeting and tapping anything within reach. I've been drowning in headphones. Music is my healthiest distraction right now. I already can't wait for the month to be over, just to know what will happen. I want to skip to the end of the book, even though I know I'll only be cheating myself.
Okay, aside from my blog tour anxiety, I'm excited to announce that I'll be swapping blogs with the legendary M. Pax next Monday. That's right, I'll be over at her place, and she'll be right here talking about her experience as an indie author. So if you're an indie author or thinking of becoming an indie author, then park your butt in front of your favorite computer screen and prepare to take some notes.
What do you have going on this month? Are you ready for Halloween, cooler weather, and pumpkin lattes?
