If there’s any constant in my life, it would be change. I can’t help myself. I am driven to continuously tweak, trim, nudge and polish. With that comes a lot of failure, error, trial and a few disasters. I try to handle the managed chaos in my brain with humor and love. I think perfection is overrated.

So a few cha-cha-changes…

I’ve brought back the original version of “Exercise Your Writes” to support The Pixel Project [www.thepixelproject.net]. This is for guests of any genre connected to the writing industry, while the version on the Horror Writer Association’s YouTube is focused on kittens… if they are also horror writers.

I’m also consolidating “Authortunities Extra” into the Wednesday show to make my life simpler.

You can catch “Exercise Your Writes” every Wednesday at 2 pm EST here:

You can catch “Exorcise Your Writes” every Saturday at 2 pm EST here:

I’ve been asked quite a few times why I choose to send Authortunities out on Wednesday when most people don’t have time to read and plan their submissions until the weekend. My answer is… it seemed like a good idea? Happy Humpday? Since I have no real reason to mail out mid-week I’ve gone ahead and shifted my schedule for a Saturday morning mailout.

That’s about it, nothing major. No disasters.

In this issue of Authortunities I share news that I’ll be a guest alongside Linda D. Addison and Paul Tremblay for Read For Pixel’s “Tackling the Terrors of #MeToo” discussion. I include the link to another free digital vintage issue of Space and Time magazine—#94 from Fall 2001. This issue is from when founder and Father of Space and Time Gordon Linzner was the editor-in-chief! 🚀
