Scribblers' Den

Welcome to Scribblers' Den, the online tavern where authors of the ~punk genres can meet to share concepts and philosophies of The Craft in the hope that these conversations will provide the fertile ground that will give rise to tomorrow's incredible ideas.  You needn't be a famous author, nor even a published one to be a member.  You need only be serious.  This group is not about exclusion nor limitations, in fact it has only one rule:  No personal attacks on a fellow member for expressing his or her own opinion.  Violation of that axiom will get you thrown out of here so fast it will leave you with whiplash, and this is the only warning that will be given.  So pull up a chair, order a round, and put your wares on the table.  This is the place where imaginations fly!

     I'm using almost all my time right now, hand-transcribing the very long Temple of Exile novel to my portfolio at Writing.com, but I found an unexpected day to myself today, and managed to flesh out the outline for Nexus.  What y'all…Continue

Inventing The Terminology of an Anthropomorphic World.

Started by Thorn Martinek. Last reply by Thorn Martinek Jan 25. 9 Replies

Hello All!I've been working on my story more today, and it occurred to me that something has been bugging me about it.  I can't seem to settle on a way to refer to their hands and feet.  I know it may seem an odd thing to get caught up on, but there…Continue

      Looks like the videos section is working again.  I guess someone is still manning the bridge around here.

Hope you are better Lady N and have a wonderful Apocreas !! Off to the Armoury Best Steve 

Bravo Denizens all !!

Comment by Lady N yesterday

All hard at work I see! Great news Stephanie, Steve & Bryce!

I've been ill forever and have done virtually nothing 

This coming weekend is a long weekend where I am. Monday is Clean Monday - the first day of Lent, which means that this week is Apocreas or carnival week! Lots of fun and antics here! I will try and get Hoodwinked finished for the occasion- I should be in the right spirit.

Notes: 1. The Empire does like me posting comments from my phone. Strange...

2. P comment left in the Armoury.

I had President's Day off just because it was one of my regular days off.  Our paid holiday at Kitt Peak this week is Friday, which is Rodeo Day.  I used to wonder why people in Tucson treated Rodeo Day as a major holiday (aside from the rodeo being a popular event in Tucson...).  It turns out it celebrates a peace accord signed by the people of Tucson and the nearby Tohono O'Odham nation.  The Tucson Rodeo was started to celebrate the event.

Now that I've explained all that, it turns out I have to work on Rodeo Day this week.

Comment by Stephanie Kato yesterday
Glad to hear about the news, David.

My book cover was finished this morning. I'm almost done! Just need to assign the ISBN and upload everything to Amazon.

The three day weekend is making it hard to adjust at my workplace. How about you guys? Did anybody else have President's Day off?

Good evening, Denizens!  It's been a busy day of writing for me.  I just wrote another 2000 words of Owl Riders.  In the meantime, thanks to William Jackson for pointing out the awesome Smith and Skarry review of Owl Dance that appeared this morning!  https://smithandskarry.wordpress.com/2017/02/20/morning-cuppa-owl-d...

In not-steampunk news, my publisher wrote this morning to say that the print edition of my spooky novel about gangsters, ghosts, ghouls and astronomers is now live.  https://www.amazon.com/dp/1927555876/

Enjoyed your photos from the Long Beach Comic Expo, Stephanie.

Hope you all have had a good start to the week.

Comment by P. Aloysius Regnad on Monday

      I just sent a feedback report about my problem with the videos section.  Now to wait and see.

Comment by Stephanie Kato on Monday

I really like the cover for Royal America. Yesterday was pretty busy for me because I was attending the Long Beach Comic Expo. It was a lot of fun. You can read about it and view my pics here. http://www.stephaniekatoauthor.com/blog
