Well It’s finally here!

Happy Monday everybody.

I hope you all got to see the new Star Wars movie this weekend.  I actually didn’t get a chance to see it but will be seeing it Wednesday, so I’m a little disappointed that I missed the hullabaloo of opening weekend but it may be best.

I’m a huge fan but I heard tons of people got dressed up to go see the film.  While that’s totally awesome, I think trying to watch Star Wars while sitting behind nine guys dressed like Darth Vader would probably annoy the crap out of me.

This will be the only post this week as I have tons of family and friends doing annoying things like being kind and throwing parties so I’m just gonna indulge in that and I think everyone should do the same.

But I’ll be back Monday and then it’s new years so not sure what’s going on there but starting January 4th I’m back to the usual two updates a week.

In the meantime over on Reluctant Joy I’ve been posting micro-stories the last few weeks.  I’ve posted them all in order, I think you’ll see what I was doing or at least attempting to do if you read them at one time and I really hope you like it http://bit.ly/rljywp

Over on Stuff N Stuff Palmer and I are talking about really important things like how to tell if a donkey is dead or alive, when to leave a wedding and where to find good Chinese food.  http://bit.ly/1KOLDsH

I don’t know if there’s enough time to get a copy of my novel The Geek to you by Christmas but downloads are instantaneous if you don’t need a paperback http://bit.ly/1MAAyZQ

And as I rush off to do Holiday things I leave you with this thought.  It doesn’t really matter if your Christian, Jewish, Muslim, Hindu, Buddhist, Jedi, Sith or Huffle Puff.  It doesn’t matter what you believe or what you celebrate.  Just try to remember we’re all in this together and give the person you pass on the street a smile and wish them Happy Holidays.

Then in January we can all go back to being right pricks to each other.

Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays!

Sincerely,

Jonathan

Well it’s another glorious week of whoring myself out.

Hey everybody,

I hope everyone had a nice weekend and that you’re all girding yourselves for the grueling week ahead of you.

But hey, not to fear I’ve got lots of things to distract you and hopefully lessen your productivity so you can stick it to “The Man”, unless of course you are “The Man” in which case I have bad news for your productivity outlook.

Over on Reluctant Joy I’m waxing less than poetically about the average life of a writer in the 21st century.  You can find that here http://www.bit.ly/rljywp

Over on Tumble and Drift it’s part 2 of my short story D’jinn. It’s a sweet little story about the friendship between a human and genie and kind of caught me off guard because I don’t usually write sweet stories.  Snarky, violent and weird sure, but sweet came right out of nowhere.  Part 1 of course is available and you should read that first.  There’s also quite a number of other stories on there but check out D’jinn I think you’ll like it.  http://www.bit.ly/tadsff

This Wednesday episode 2 of my podcast Stuff & Stuff will be available.  If you haven’t listened to episode 1 yet go ahead and give it a go.  In episode 1 I’m talking with my buddy Rob Palmer about the state of the entertainment industry, independent film and a bunch of random stuff. This Wednesday I have a nice little chat with Video Game designer Tyler Uslan about indie gaming and of course stuff. It’s available on podbean and iTunes, so yay for me.  http://stuffnstuff.podbean.com/

And on facebook there’s absolutely nothing productive goin on, as usual but you should like and follow me because I have self esteem issues and I don’t think anyone wants to take responsibility for me going on another shame spiral where I eat six jumbo bags of powdered donettes.  So on your head be it.  http://www.bit.ly/fnbrjwp

And why not follow me on twitter I shall lead you to the promised land, probably not but hey you might as well, I always follow back unless your a bot or trying to sell me followers, if I wanted to buy followers I’d have way more than I do I’m at  @Pron_Coktail on twitter.

And after a fairly serious hiccup my novel The Geek is being fixed and will be back on and available at amazon in a couple weeks in paperback and of course ebook.

Anyhoo, you should follow this blog also and join my mailing list so you can be kept up to date on upcoming giveaways, contests and general information regarding various shenanigans.

I hope you all have a nice day and a great week.

Best,

Jonathan
