Updates on Books 3, 4, 5, 6, and Beyond, by Robert J Defendi writing as Bob Defendi
All right. For a long time, I’ve been playing Dying Light. I started it in October as my Halloween game and it’s a long game. Also, my schedule is busier now, both socially and writing-wise, so I don’t often get a solid day of playing on any given game. Part of that is that my […]
Wow, by Robert J Defendi writing as Bob Defendi
So you’re probably expecting a final NaNo update, but instead, I’m going to talk about ribs and degenerate into a discussion on health. Feel free to skip it if spinal health isn’t your thing. On Thanksgiving, I dislocated 3-5 ribs. The experience was…let’s say…bracing. This isn’t the first time its happened, but it’s one of […]
I’m on Vacation!, by Robert J Defendi writing as Bob Defendi
This week is me watching streaming television, playing with my entertainment setup, and trying not to get carpal tunnel syndrome playing Dying Light. There will also be the eating of turkey. And perhaps reflecting on thankfulness and the like. As writers its very important to recharge our batteries. When I first started as a professional […]

NaNoWriMo Week 2, by Robert J Defendi writing as Bob Defendi
So, NaNo, week 2. I finished last week with the question about how week two would be and what it would hold. If you’ve looked at the counter on my blog, you’ll see it went just about as well as week 1. Except that I didn’t have a dental emergency. Although the filling from my […]
Book Covers To Be Thankful For, by Dani Eide
Have you ever BOUGHT a book based on the cover alone?! (Of course, you have! We ALL have…) Book covers are the art that draw readers to the books they read… That why the design of book covers are so important. Their art translates the entirety of the book into a single visual element – […]
NaNoWriMo Week 1, by Robert J Defendi writing as Bob Defendi
Wow. NaNo can be hard. 🙂 I’ve won NaNoWriMo two or three times in the past (to “win” means that you completed it, finishing more than 50,000 words by the rules of the contest). I have a full-time job each time, but at no time was it a high-demand job. In the past, my NaNoWriMo […]
Halloween is over, but we know many lovers of the gothic and the macabre, our friends who live in a cobwebbed sphere of October all year long. They are the ones hesitant to put away their Jason hockey masks or dust up the candy corn crumbs. Delight them with an extra bit of Halloween this […]
FearCon and NaNoWriMo, by Robert J Defendi writing as Bob Defendi
I spent this weekend at my first FearCon, which was fun. Except for the fact that I didn’t bring any horror books to sell. I didn’t actually confirm that I’d be at the convention until just a few days before and so I didn’t have any of my horror anthologies there. You see, at almost […]
