Seemed like a good title for a blog post ... not sure if it works but hey, you be the judge. Since I've been away taking very good care of #MyKnight while he recovers from a hip replacement, I've actually done a few things. I know, I was surprised too. For starters, ALL the Byte … Continue reading Dear Readers,
Seriously, it should. Not just because I just saw a glitter helmet on the telly (watching American Pickers with My Knight). I've been a sparkle lover my whole life. And you all know the joy when my daughter told me I could have GLITTER on my book covers. 🙂 As it stands now, two of … Continue reading Everything should sparkle

It moves around so much and moves my screens so much that it makes me feel ill. I have zero control over it when it does that. … Continue reading A possessed MacBook

About the only time the answer will be an outright no, is if you are a digital pirate. If you are, you can fuck right off and get your sticky little fingers … Continue reading Do I like you?
This morning I opened a file called 'Crashbyte' - that's what Vaporbyte was always supposed to be called. Book 12: Crashbyte. Somewhere as I was following the story, (and it happened pretty fast - two chapters in) I realized Crashbyte wasn't going to be book 12. It may not ever be an anything. That's okay, … Continue reading It was Crashbyte …
