We’re rapidly approaching the point of no return for Mikhail. It all seems pretty inevitable to me, but I guess I know him better than most… I followed Carly through the small cafe, past the counter, down a hallway and up to a solid metal slab of a door. She looked up at a [...]
Curiouser and curiouser… Or at least I hope so. Anyway, enjoy. After checking very carefully for any suspicious types in the area, I let myself into my apartment. (Once in a while I still find myself checking over my shoulder before I unlock a door). The first thing I saw was a garbage bag [...]
I’m not quite sure whether this will wind up as a single chapter or not, but at the moment it fits, so I’ll go with it. As always, comments are welcome. I was a little distracted when I met Massimo for the first time. Carly and I had only spoken a few times since [...]
A litte bit more relationship building (or breaking, as the case may be) in this chapter. For any of the guys reading this – don’t worry, there’s action coming soon, I promise.
A shorter chapter this time that’s really just here to set up some events later in the story. There’s a bit of character development and some (hopefully) funny lines, but I’m concerned it might come across as some otherwise-purposeless exposition. As always, your comments are appreciated.
Another chapter available for your reading pleasure (I hope). You can see the first two chapters by clicking on the ‘Binary Vision’ category link in the sidebar. “I must have found the shadow drive and written the program specifically to crack it.” It was the next morning and I was sitting at the Starbucks [...]
The next chapter of what could someday be a novel is now available. Hope you like it. I was twenty minutes late for work and had just sat down at my desk when Brad knocked. I assumed he was there to ream me out for Saturday night, but instead he said he had someone [...]
I’ve decided to start posting chapters of the novel I’ve been working on. I’m eager hear what you think of Chapter One. Introduction You probably don’t know me, but my name is Mikhail Benson, and I’m a genius. Now, I don’t mean I’m a genius like when someone does something really smart and you say, [...]
I originally stumbled onto this article via Penny Arcade this morning. Among my favorite sound bites: “… any kind of book distribution which provides free copies to people has always, throughout the history of publishing, eventually rebounded to the benefit of the author.” Now, the future of writing and publishing has been one of the [...]
or: A Lesson in Perspective I’ve been really busy with Gumboot Books and Live Your Dream stuff lately and I haven’t put much time into my novel. Crystal and I have been away at a craft fair on Vancouver Island for the last five days and I expected that trend to continue. However, on our [...]
