Classic Blog Post: Sarah Palin Read My Books!

Original Publication Date: 10/13/08

No, not really.  The witch would have them banned even if the character of Andy was a moose-killing, hockey-watching, football-TV-yelling, oil-drilling-in-the-Alaskan-refuge soccer-dad with his obviously adopted Himalayan whistle children.  Don’t you just love Tina Fey?

Okay, just a short one today since I’m:

1) Still getting ready for honorable mother-in-law’s visit on Tuesday (no, not the Grandmonster)
2) Recovering from my trip to Grand Rapids last week (still a shade of red from being sunburned…my partner reminded too late yet again that I’m white)
3) Gearing up for the Milwaukee signing on the 18th (Wisconsin is known for its cheese, right?) and
4) Mentally gearing up for the 2-day signing in Palm Springs during their Pride Fest over Halloween weekend.

Ooh, the Gaydarnation interview has been posted!  Woo hoo!  I had a blast working with them and I think a playful side of me comes through pretty well.

Another review of “Andy Stevenson Vs. the Lord of the Loins” has also been posted on Rainbow Reviews.

Or you can simply pick up the book and read it for yourself.
Come on.  You know you wanna!

Off to watch “Feast II: Sloppy Seconds” with my Chief of Security.




Kage Alan is  The Gun In Betty Lou’s Handbag watching, Animotion listening author of “A Funny Thing Happened on the Way to My Sexual Orientation,” “Andy Stevenson Vs. the Lord of the Loins” and the first book in a separate series, “Gaylias: Operation Thunderspell.” Does anybody else think that Cathy Moriarty should get more roles? Not only do I LOVE listening to her voice, but the woman is gold in any comedic role she’s in. Definitely love her!

  1. First off I want to say great blog! I had a quick question which I’d like to ask if you do not mind. I was curious to know how you center yourself and clear your thoughts prior to writing. I have had a hard time clearing my mind in getting my thoughts out. I truly do take pleasure in writing but it just seems like the first 10 to 15 minutes are wasted simply just trying to figure out how to begin. Any recommendations or hints? Kudos!

      Good question! And thank you for the kind words.

      I typically sit down with an idea of what it is I want or need to write in what I’m working on. One technique to help with that is to stop writing the previous day on a cliffhanger of sorts. By that, I mean you know exactly what’s going to come next. So if you stop there, you know where you’ll be picking up the next day.

      Something else I do to help get me in the mood if I don’t happen to know what I’ll be writing is to use music. I have specific music I use for each book or to get me into the mood to start writing. Everybody has their favorites. I typically use something without lyrics, otherwise I catch myself listening to them or singing along. One band I’ve been relying on quite heavily is Tangerine Dream.
