Get back, get back, get back to where you once belonged.

John Lennon believed that “Get Back” was aimed at his lover, Yoko Ono, who had begun accompanying him to many of the Beatles' recording sessions. Paul adamantly denies that this song was about Ono, but he’s admitted that her presence during recording sessions was a living nightmare, and let's all be honest it would be way funnier if Paul was telling Yoko to go ono hike.

Goals and limits are the same dang thing, and I don't care if sharks are a vital part of the ecosystem I still don't like 'em.

Author’s Dozen: Revised, Pt. 4: Die! Or Adapt

Author’s Dozen: Revised, Pt. 4: Die! Or Adapt

March 22, 2021

‘Adapt or die’ is a simplistic proverb. First of all, it should read ‘adapt or die prematurely,’ because, you know, of how death be. Death DO be like that.

Come with me, children, as we learn how to turn the sad 'before' into the happily-ever-'after.' Your revised book is like your revised self: way cooler 😎

Author’s Dozen: Revised, Pt. 3: Push It to the Limit

Author’s Dozen: Revised, Pt. 3: Push It to the Limit

March 15, 2021

Without a push, you won't do anything original, and you can't push yourself. So don't be a pushover; be a pusher by pushing the envelope of how much you push and are pushed. I'm really pushing how many times I push the word push and now the word 'push' is starting to lose all meaning to me push push.

Introducing: Author’s Dozen: Revised: Revolutions: Revengance

Introducing: Author’s Dozen: Revised: Revolutions: Revengance

February 26, 2021

This the start of a brand new show! Hop on board the train because we're leaving the station and going to the north pole to meet Santa and if you let hot chocolate cool down at all we'll feed you to the skiing hobo on the roof. 

Recall the hurdles faced in the creative race: study, question, commit. This is how to finish a creative task. We did this a dozen times in 2020 and created 12 books. Each finished book resulted in lessons learned, whether through success or failure.

Imagine we return to the racing metaphor, but with a twist: what if you were able to go back in time and run each race again, having already learned the lessons of prior failures and successes? What if you could run the same race over and over, only retaining the best aspects of each attempt? That’s a superpower. That’s a Rick and Morty episode. Burp or whatever.

That's revision.

CRITIC’S COLLAB: SS TERMINUS – An In-Depth Discussion of my novel SS Terminus with Amy Lynn Green, author of Things We Didn’t Say

CRITIC’S COLLAB: SS TERMINUS – An In-Depth Discussion of my novel SS Terminus with Amy Lynn Green, author of Things We Didn’t Say

January 27, 2021

Amy Lynn Green, author of Things We Didn't Say, joins me for a ship-shape discussion of my historical-sci-fi masterpiece SS Terminus. It's worth tuning in just to find out what "historical-sci-fi" means.

A mysterious flying metal ship has upended the balance of power in the age of sail; a city has been flattened by weaponry not of this world; Captain Dawn – a hero of the Verland Empire – has disappeared with his flagship and all hands; and Robert Crowe, a Lieutenant of low and scandalous birth, is summoned to captain a vessel of the sixth rate, upon which lie all the hopes and fears of the Royal Navy. 

Amy does this for a living, so if you want to be a great critic or be greatly critiqued, this is the episode for you.

Read SS Terminus and more for free at www.authorsdozen.com. You can find Amy Green Books at www.amygreenbooks.com (go figure).
