Stargate, Texas & A Free NaNoWriMo Song

November is National Novel Writing Month.  I've got a song for you folks participating in NaNoWriMo this year, but first...
What I'm Reading, Listening to, and Watching: 
  • Books: Just finished K.V. Johansen's Blackdog and I just started Edward Lazellari's Awakenings. What are you reading?
  • Music: The new Fountains of Wayne album, the new Lindsey Buckingham album and Ron Sexsmith's back catalog.
  • TV: Just finished Stargate Universe on Netflix Streaming. Between SG-1, Atlantis & Universe, I've watched 17 seasons of Stargate.  There's a song in there somewhere. Any ideas?  

What's Going On:
I'm excited to announce that I will be the Musical Guest of Honor next year at Fencon IX in Dallas, Texas!

Free NaNoWriMo Song!
In 2007, I wrote a 50,000 word novel during National Novel Writing Month (NaNoWriMo).  This eventually led me to writing songs that were published in releases by Pyr Books & Subterranean Press.  The song chronicles my NaNo experience and you can download it for free.    Click here for the free download: 

This one is on me, but I'd love it if you'd help spread the word.  Here are a few things you can do to help.

  1. And since I'm not doing NaNo this year, I can enjoy the song!
    You do a Stargate song, let me know. Awesome shows!
    My wife would probably make a plea for Rodney to be included. She adored that character.

  2. Well now I'm gonna have to make it to Fencon next year! Congrats!

  3. I couldn't write a 50,0000 word novel. Mine tend to go 150,000 words or more, so I need to shorten them. But I'm by no means a fast writer. It would take me at least a year to write a book, so 50,000 words in one month is amazing.

  4. for SG-1, a love song about the event horizon.
