After looking at a handful of trailers, I’m looking forward to some new TV shows, later this year.
This is a new way of looking at the classic Washington Irving tale of Ichabod Crane and the Headless Horseman. It’s about an 18th Century soldier Crane who somehow winds up in the 21st Century under the watch of a small town police officer. Here’s the official trailer.
This is a cop show where a seriously ‘broken’ human cop is partnered with a ‘non-standard’ android. It does show some promise, if it doesn’t fall down the RoboCop path. Here’s the official trailer.
Given that FOX’s track record with fantasy and sci-fi shows over the years, I am worried about both of these.
Another new show I’ve high hopes for is a comedy.
Robin Williams and Sarah Michelle Gellar have been cast as father and daughter in Crazy Ones.
This is a new sitcom being devloped for CBS.
The best part is that it will be produced by David E. Kelley! This is the same fellow that brought us Ally McBeal and Boston Legal. There doesn’t appear to be a trailer yet.
Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.
Joss Whedon is going to produce an Avengers spinoff that resurrects agent Coulson who was apparently killed in the Avengers movie. Here’s the full trailer.
Well? What do y’all think? Looking forward to anything new and exciting this fall?

Beginner Mind is a collection of six short stories and some free-form poetry by a new author. It opens with a tale that leaves the reader with vivid imagery of a string of post-pubescent mistakes and just gets better.
The following story is called “Pistol Grip” and it blurs the line between murder and mistake.
I really enjoyed tale number three, “Evan’s Dilemma”, tale four, “Mending Fences”, and tale six, “The Unfiltered Spectra of the Deep”. Any one of them is well worth savouring and leaves the reader with some wonderful scenes.
And finally, I can’t help but think the poetry is like a fine desert offered after a satisfying meal.
Pick up a copy of this fine work. You’ll thank me.

The forth book in a five book shifter series from Red Rose Publishing, Echopharte tells of the origins and evolution of the shifters.
The ancients revered them. The colonists feared them. Today, no one believes in them. Shifters have lived and worked among humans since before recorded history.
Echopharte tells of the first community and how both good and evil have continuously shaped our society, from ancient times up to the present day.

Awhile back, I had this horrible nightmare that turned into a lucid dream. When I woke, I started writing. This tale is the result of that dream.

It was with some trepidation that I accepted the key to the family mausoleum from my father. His usually cheerful expression was quite serious as he explained that upon the passing of my sixteenth year on this Earth, I was to learn more of our family history and responsibilities. All of my many questions were turned aside as I was dutifully informed I was to unlock the crypt, enter and read the inscriptions therin.

I’m going to be attending a brand new convention for readers and authors of Urban Fantasy, Science Fiction, and Paranormal Romance. It’s called Old City, New Blood and will be held February, 2013 in St. Augustine, Florida. Besides the literary shenanigans, there will be a ghost tour of the ancient city and time to play tourist.
I’m going to be participating in several panels and am planning a book signing as well.
This is going to be an incredible amount of fun and I’m hoping to meet some of my fans, face-to-face.
Come on! Join the fun!
