Obligatory first post intro

21 02 2008

Decided to add a Word Press blog where I could journal with a little more flexibility and freedom.

Started back on my writing again. Currently I have two novels on the front burner and two on the back.  The main one, still untitled is plugging along and hopefully I will have enough of a manuscript that I can start submitting queries to publishers.

So before I tear off on one of my usual ramblings, a little about me. I’m a 41 year old writer, who still works a day job until something gets published. I currently work at an insurance company in Chicago where I perform any number of duties including IT,  data entry and generally being a PITA to the number of brokers here. It’s the bane of my existence and you’ll probably see a few posts on that point going forward.

I am married to a wonderful man who is a graphic designer with aspirations at publishing as well. Brian is amazingly smart and well-versed in numerous languages and vexillology (study of flags) which he is hoping to produce some books on in the near future.  WE share our house with 2 cats, Apache and Snoots (aged 18 years and 8 months respectively) and you will DEFINITELY be hearing a lot about them as well.  I am an avid music, movie and book fan. I’m gonna try and post some reviews now and then.

I do some promotion work for Shortwave Dahlia , a fantastic electronic/alternative  band based in Memphis, TN. Stop by their site and visit their MySpace to hear some of their songs. Really great band with an amazing repertoire.  Also, if you’re interested, visit Jack Alberson’s WordPress Blog  for some great music interviews and reviews. (Jack is the lead singer for Shortwave Dahlia).

On another music tip, visit One Kind Radio. com, a web radio run by my brother, John Bowles. He posts a monthly show that plays all sorts of indie music and includes as diverse styles as Celtic Rock, Punk and Electronica.

Anyway, enough pimping of others.  I’ll probably be posting more later today. Thanks for stopping by.
