This is the same story that's been in the Hatbox for some time, now released with new editing and a new cover on Amazon. The story of Jake and Cody, friends--and Freds--for a lifetime. See story for joke about the Freds.

A treasure........

Several years ago, I was truly blessed to stumble upon a work of art called Easy as Falling Off a Bike. Over the next several weeks, I binged on it - reading more story with my every free moment, going short on sleep, and in the process getting to know the author, a very special woman whom I like to think of as a friend.

Author's tricks of the trade - Newspapers

Some of you might have noticed I added in a dummied up newspaper article and included it in the latest chapter of Cassandra (Chapter 8).

It took me a bit of time to work out how to do it, so I thought some of you might wish to tuck this little 'how to' away should you wish to do the same in one of your stories.

Step 1 - Create Clipping
The online resource I used was https://www.fodey.com/generators/newspaper/snippet.asp.

I thought it would be more painful?

Catchy title huh? unfortunately also the cold hard truth.

An explanation? Back in November I went to my doctor with this feeling of a pulled muscle that wouldn't go away. It wasn't that painful, just a bit uncomfortable at times, it happened to be located in my left chest area. Yeah, yeah I know but heart attacks are supposed to be really painful right?

New Book - 'Dragged Up' - in English this time.

Been busy...
..now up on Amazon - Kindle edition to be followed shortly by a paperback edition
.. a return to my original story type - coming of age under difficult circumstances.

DRAGGED UP
My thanks, as ever to Tom P. for his proofing.

First German Title - Entirely Blank - Komplett Gelöscht

Hi there

This is to announce my first attempt at breaching the German Market with one of my books
My thanks to Monique S. who has taken enormous pains to ensure the translation flows and stays loyal to the original.

it is available on all Amazon sites, but I thought it prudent to advertise the Amazon.de site here as if you are reading this in English, there is little point in buying the German version unless you have German as a first language.

Where has Casey been?

Just thought I would drop everyone a quick note. I am alive and well. It has been a while since I last posted anything. I’ve not been idle. I have a new story that’s about 80% completed and a dozen others 25-50% done. I’m also working on a non-TG tech thriller novel that I hope I can publish and share some of my writing with my family for the first time.

Hope you are all enjoying the summer.

Who Wears The Kilts?

I mean this entirely respectfully towards the troops of Canada, Scotland and any other country involved.

So, was just watching a YouTube Video called, "The Devil's Brigade. Here come the Canadians", and now I have questions.

In the clip when the Canadian troops marched into the base, The Bagpipes were in front, about 16 of them. Then came Male troops in Kilts, about 20 or so of them. Then were perhaps 100 Troops in battle pants and blouses.

Money Woes

Next year will mark my fiftieth year in business. The first fifteen years I worked for large corporations. The last thirty-five years I've owned my own business.

Owning a business is a lot like home ownership. You say "you" own the business as if that is first person singular -- when, in fact, the pronoun is almost always PLURAL.

Been busy

Life currently has me busy. I live in Oklahoma so you, whoever decides to read this, should know about the flood last month. Then there's the fact that I have been working 6 to 12 hours over time every week for the last four weeks. I am tired. But my stories are still moving. One or two lines at a time. I hope to have something ready by the end of the month. Just please be patient with me.

Thank you for reading.

Summer Story

Working on a new story for the summer. I hope to start posting it here very soon. Its something quick and fun. It will be shorter than Hello My Name Is... and in very similar to my DarkRealms stories, you could almost call it a DarkRealms Alternate type story. The universe feels very similar. I want to make sure that I have at least 5 chapters written before I start posting, I'm almost done with ch. 3 now :). So stay tuned :).

When Time Runs Out.

I've belatedly realized that much of what I have written has been various parts of a larger story, but not in order. Slowly, over the last nearly 40 years of writing, hopefully I've gotten better at it.

If anyone reads what I have written, I've tried to be optimistic, and romantic in the face of a lot of real life pain. Much of my novel is showing some semblance of order, but it is not finished, and may never achieve the artistry that I had desired. That is a disappointment.

shelving a story idea (for now)

I have talked here about an idea I had for this, my 10th anniversary year - having a character jump from one story universe to another.

Unfortunately, my muse isnt sending me anything to flesh the idea out, and instead I've been working on some sequels - one for the story "Sing a healing song", a new Jaci and Dottie story, and a story set in the "E-Girl" universe that will focus on the villains.

So I'm shelving the story jumping idea, at least for now.

two non TG stories

Here are two stories that I have done and one you can follow
They are non TG

Ave Maria
Some Catholics say Mary, the mother of Jesus has appeared to many Catholics across the world in the last few centuries. Would she appear to an 11-year-old protestant?
This 3 part story explains the feelings and trials of that boy, that is the center of a Mary apparition.

What ever happened with Sarah Carrera?

Until around 2011 or 12 there was an author here named Sarah Carrera, I think. She wrote stories about a t girl that lived in the Sacramento, Ca. area, had a band, or sang and did none performance in the Red Rock Amphitheater in Colorado. It may have been that she was eventually discovered to have girl parts?

I think that in private emails, she told me that she was going on a 2 year Mormon Mission, so she dropped out of sight. She did not resurface after her mission, at least not using the same name.

Seeya later!

Hey, guys.

So we're leaving for our trip tonight. In about an hour actually (7am Thursday Eastern over there). But I'll be seeing all of you again Monday evening (or about 9am Monday Eastern over there). Therefore no stories until Monday.

I'll still be logging on from time to time within that period, so I won't be completely out of contact with you guys here in the Bigcloset. Feel free to comment or PM or whatever, and I'll respond as soon as I see 'em.

Slow posting

It took 6 months but I finally finished chapter 7 of The Puppeteer. First time that's ever happened. Why; you ask. Ok. picture this. You're painting a whole room and stop when you realize you've literally painted yourself into the opposite corner. Unfortunately you just HAPPEN to be wearing your precious iced pink satin Valentino ballgown and 1100 dollar(made to fit only you) Dalco pumps. Ok, just have to wait for the paint to dry, finish up and walk out, right? Wrong. the paint dries to the wrong shade and the floor turns out to be warped enough to show with that hideous color!

Posting a new story - Cassandra

It's been ten years since I posted my very first attempt at fiction here at BCTS (or indeed anywhere). For those of you who have been around that long it was 'The Healing Dagger', a short story of about 18,000 words set in the aftermath of a global pandemic. I try not to go back and read it now. Far too embarrassing!
