The Permanent Man #3: Where Loyalties Lie is Live!

You have two choices. And you want to choose carefully.

You can:

1. Buy Despicable Me 2today for digital download (I'm sure the kiddies will love it) or
2. You can buy the third episode of The Permanent Man

The choice is obvious.

If you're still having trouble deciding, maybe this will help:

Xbox One Day One Edition - I Remember When....

Eight years ago, I went out very early in the morning in hopes of snagging the then hot new console, Xbox 360. I stood in line at Circuit City (yes, that long ago) and was somewhere around 15th or 16th in line.

Unfortunately, they had about 11 Xbox 360s in stock, and I didn't get one. I then proceeded to go to Target, Best Buy, and online to find an Xbox 360.

Still, I was unsuccessful.

Black Friday approached and I thought for sure I could get one then. But alas, after standing in line at several stores, I had the same result from the previous week.

It wasn't until a month later that I finally picked up the console. I bought it on Circuit City's web site when they got a few in inventory. The stock sold out quickly, but my console finally arrived a few days later.

Fast forward to now, and the successor to the Xbox 360—titled Xbox One—is out today. Instead of waiting in line and searching all over the place, I pre-ordered the console (a smart thing to do by the way, especia…

My Comcast ... I Mean Xfinity Internet Speed

I recently received an email from my Internet provider, Com ... I mean Xfinity, informing me that they had increased my internet speed.
So I'm like, "Great. Things just got faster."
That's good for my household where we've cut the cord on cable/satellite and get all our programming through Netflix, Hulu, PlayOn, and an over the air antenna. Not to mention the music we stream, along with our web browsing.
The speed increase from Xfinity takes it to speeds up to 25 Mbps down and 5 Mbps up. Which is funny because I thought those already were my speeds. Oh well, what do I know? Unless this is a clever marketing scheme to make me thinking they are offering something more when they offered it all along, I'll accept what they say.
In the notification, they also mentioned I should check if my cable modem is a DOCSIS 3.0 standard modem so I could take advantage of the speed increase. A quick check on the Comcast (or is it Xfinity, I'm so confused) web site showed…

Falling Babies Are Funny

Having a child is a roller coaster emotionally, physically, mentally, and whatever else you can think of.

When they're first born, they cause lots of sleep deprivation and tiredness. But that doesn't mean having a baby isn't fun.

Our third child, Parker, is five months old now. The other day, I tried getting him to sit up without me supporting him. He was able to do it somewhat, but ultimately, he's not ready for it. Check out the YouTube video below and you'll see what I mean.

And don't be afraid to laugh at the cuteness!

But when the unwanted arrives at his door in the form of a government agent, it is anything but expected. The agent claims Patrick is a wanted person called the Permanent Man—someone unable to experience death—and arrests him.

The Permanent Man Blog #20: Mission Completion

Days before the release of the pilot episode of The Permanent Man, I can say that I have officially completed the first season.

That's right! 120,000 words, 12 episodes, 12 book covers, 12 book blurbs, and lots of edits have resulted in a series I'm extremely proud of and that's ready for worldwide release this Tuesday, November 12, 2013!

When I set out to write this serialized fiction, I had ups and downs. There were times when I considered stopping because it was, in my opinion, stupid to write in this fashion. There were times when I thought it was the greatest thing since sliced salami and everyone should write serialized fiction. There were times when I simply sipped some Scotch and didn't write at all. My wife and I had our third child during that time, too! I even fixed a broken TV. It's surely been an eventful writing experience.

But here we are after this long haul of 20 blog posts that chronicles the journey. I've learned a lot about the writing proc…
