So i just noticed that i forgot to blog in months. that is not good but at least it has been long enough that i have a few things to say.

Me personally have being kept busy by working and social networking. i have been doing the 2nd Friday events in Mesa. My wife and daughter are going to¬†California¬†for my oldest step-daughter’s wedding. Bought my wife a small digital camera to play with while see is there. Because of work ,school and my paycheck. i’ll be staying home ūüė¶

But i will be going back to school (a tech class) starting this Tuesday. Yes, i’m scared. lol

For my books: I’m still trying to write but ¬†because of my schedule. it has slowed down, Alot. ¬†At last estimate the draft will be done in about 300 days. that has alot of room to change so don’t worry that it won’t happen. this new series has a lot of room to grow. Massive room for new characters. the first book name is : Like Father, Like Son¬†. i’m about 1/5 of the way done. but the cover is almost done and should be ready to show soon.

Do i think i’ll have it done by PHXCC14. No. but that is not a solid no . you never no i might have a good weekend and write 5 to 10k. If my job changes and my nights are freed up i might be able to push this time line faster.

also on book projects. I’m making some changes the Native Protectors series will slow down alot. ¬†i’m going to be redoing the Spirit Lance book and merging it with the short story ROTH (Rise Of The Harkon) this new book will be edited and re-covered as Spirit Lance Fusion.

@EastValleyinfo My social Networking project is moving slowly i gain a few new followers after every event i do. for the people that don’t know . I started this project a little while back to support friends and groups in the east Valley (Mesa.Tempe, Gilbert, Chandler, AJ) i go to events take pictures and post them to help bring attention to the people and event. and i really enjoy doing it but it is a slow process for me. ¬†i started just pushing KNTR, WesternX. But now it has grown to supporting the 2nd Friday event in Mesa. and the Doublewide Network (owned by Dave Pratt).

I also support a friend that i had been following for a little while named Ed Vanderlee (Owner of the Arizona Roughriders ) which work at Rawhide, when he started two internet radio projects. Rawhide Radio which Airs every Sunday at noon on the Doublewide Network. and LowRent Radio with his co-host Craig Hiess. also in the studio with him is Josh Pillsbury and Jared Bernal with BluRay Rewind. And social girl Amanda Sauceda. which is sponsored by Beyond Technology Solutions. 

so that’s it for now. check out the books. check out my friends.

So this was my third con. and one of the funnest. I met or ran into many people i was hoping to catch up with.

i’m already planning my return to PHXCC13. i already plan on staying one more night. i need a better¬†digital camera, my own video camera. I hope to continue to help the Western X web series to expand.

just saying.

I’ve learn how to control my stress,By helping other. I have¬†volunteered for Kids Need To Read for a few events and helping to move from one office to another.¬†Denise and Debbie do good works for young kids and young adults by handing out books to schools that need them.

“Kids Need to Read was founded as a nonprofit corporation in 2008 by PJ Haarsma, Denise Gary, and Nathan Fillion. It was awarded 501(c)(3) tax exempt status in September of that year. The mission of the foundation was based on the work of a 2007 project of the same name, which was the brainchild of author PJ Haarsma and actor Nathan Fillion.”

I also have tried to help a new friend Steve Chenoweth . Steve’s daughter has¬†leukemia and they are in need of help. Mia’s Caring Heart¬†. The best that i can do is help as much as i can by sending people to the website to donate what they can.

I created a tweeter account to try to start a business idea. It failed , but opened the opportunity for me to help small businesses in the east valley . I help business like Sourdough Pizza Restaurant  in the east mesa area. i also run their twitter account @sourdoughpizza1 .

I also support a web-series filmed in Arizona called WesternX . The creator of this web series is Michael Flores . He has work hard on this project and is now starting to see the rewards from it in the acclaim of receiving awards. If getting more support this web series can really soar.  This is how i keep my stress down and it seems to be working.

Ok i pride myself in able to keep my stress down. And i credit the little things. In the morning i like to get up early and sit on the porch soaking up the morning. This time of the year is close to the best. i don’t drink coffee so its me sitting and relaxing.

I like to rate my day as a plus or a minus. plus examples are : seeing good friends, making more money than i spent, doing something that is not a normal thing. (walk in the park , getting out of town for a few hours), getting mostly everything on my to do list done. Even paying bills is a plus mostly if there was anything left after. hehe

Minus: sitting and watching TV and getting nothing done the whole day. a major bill like a car repair, making less than i spent.

More pluses : 4Squareing every where i go. hehe Spending the day with my grandson which will be tomorrow. Twittering with friends I’ve never met. Mental note talk to Micheal Flores about a WesternX party at a bar. If you don’t know WesternX is a Web-series filmed in Arizona. Episode 4 aired last week .Episode 5 will air 9/13/2011 at midnight.

A Twitter Friend has written a book and is working on 2 others. @Johndavisbooks the first book is called Gunship  . Check it out . I like the acknowledgement. Hehe. Book 2 Gunship:Glimmeria will be out in Dec.

Tomorrow i will be spending time with my grandson. Not really sure what we are going to do but it will be together. A walk in the park in the early morning, lunch at the mall, maybe a movie.

These are some of the things that help me. lower any stress. it may not be your way, it may not sound that fun , but it is my way.

 

So people that know me and what i do. Know that i find businesses and groups and lend them my support. many of the businesses are with in walking distance from my home. so here are a few that i support. Arizona Shade they are close to me. They make carports, custom sheds. a small group of Tattoo artist at  Dark Chapel Tattoo . Xtreme Recycling for your recycling needs yesterday soda cans were .80 cents a pound. Sourdough pizza because its my place of work and i love the pizza. A Favorite charity of mine is Kids Need to Read they are now based out of Mesa. And they do good works. HEHE

And last but not least a web series base in Arizona .WesternX a creative web series has already been noticed by people. And is even up for a award or two. The lead brain on this project is Michael Flores . Michael is working on several new project while getting ready to release more EPISODES of westernX. keep a eye on this young talent.
