You may have noticed that both the blog and my Facebook page have been a bit lean lately. There are a lot of reasons for this… and I’ll explain.


Personal Update

Posted on May 8th, by Kevin Gubernatis in Behind the Scenes, Deep Thoughts, Writing Craft. No Comments

While trying to keep myself focused on some kind of writing, I have found a myriad amazing ways to distract myself! Let me tell you a little bit about what’s going on around here. There are orcs, superheroes, and the White Wolf, oh my!

Have you read and reviewed The White Wolf and The Darkness? Whether you’ve fallen in love with Private King’s personal journey, been rooting for Michaels to work it out, cheered on Asala’s ass-kicking, or found yourself afraid of the Darkness, I’d really love to hear from you!
