Pass the Peas

The Family Meal Recently the pastor made a quick reference to the numerous studies on the strong correlation between family meals and children’s health (emotional, physical, mental and spiritual). How long has that stuff been stacked up on your dining table? Why did we stop eating together as a family? Both mom and dad are working, […]

SciFi and Fantasy Anthologies Fully Funded

Congratulations to Houston Writers Guild member, author, and editor K.J. Russell for running a great Kickstarter campaign and submission process, and thanks to everyone who has contributed and spread the word about the HWG/SkipJack Publishing Tides of Possibility Kickstarter campaign, we’re going to be able to produce an entire fantasy anthology, and everyone who has contributed five dollars or more will be receiving the entire ebook of it! That’s just great from every angle. This anthology is not for profit, so every dollar contributed above the stretch goals is destined to be spent making sure the anthologies are of top quality and helping to kick off future HWG anthologies.
For details on the fantasy anthology, when we will be open to submissions and when we expect it to be produced, we’ll continue to use these updates to keep everyone informed. For now we can say that we hope to collect submissions within the next few months and have the fantasy anthology produced before Christmas, but we want to make sure we don’t get distracted from the SF anthology when we still have so much work ahead of us.
We’re looking forward to Tides of Possibility!

Childish Dreams – a poem for April

April is National Child Abuse Prevention Month. Well, I was streaming the Boston Marathon this morning and I remembered the face of that little innocent boy that was murdered. And I think in part, from looking at my 3rd Grade class picture it triggered me to remember a poem I wrote several years ago. It is not […]

I’m passing this on to you

I’m posting another blog below this short note. This is a heartfelt expression from another mom. But I know the feelings she expresses as she watches her daughter perform on stage. There are times I watch my daughter from across the room and my breath catches in my throat. It seems she caught all the […]
