Working Around the “Work” Thing

Posted: 16th March 2014 by Jeff Bouley / Deacon Blue in Announcements / General

Are you still with me, here? Are my fans still checking in despite my absence? I hope so. Although I haven’t had my schedule and discretionary time quite as hard-slammed by my new (well, new as of January) job as chief editor as my predecessor seemed to have (i.e. I don’t think I’m putting in […]

Fiction is a’coming…

Posted: 24th February 2014 by Jeff Bouley / Deacon Blue in Announcements / General

I came off closing out the February issue of the magazine I’m now heading up as chief editor to go into a week of vacation (does anyplace other than New England subject parents to a weeklong vacation between the Christmas-time break and Spring Break?) with my daughter in the house a lot, so my fiction […]

With Great Power Comes Great…Lack of Time

Posted: 31st October 2013 by Jeff Bouley / Deacon Blue in Announcements / General

The disadvantage of being hired to take over as chief editor of the magazine on which I currently serve as managing editor is that for a couple weeks now, I’ve been doing my job, learning my chief editor’s job and…and an added unexpected bonus, training my successor for the magazine editor job about a month […]

Image Is Everything (Awful)

Posted: 12th October 2013 by Jeff Bouley / Deacon Blue in Announcements / General

The vast majority of the images I have been using on this blog are now removed, after I got a very evil letter from a very large company telling me I was in violation of using an image (at another blog of mine, for a five-year-old post hardly anyone even viewed) and demanding a ridiculously […]

Boo…Housekeeping

Posted: 30th August 2013 by Jeff Bouley / Deacon Blue in Announcements / General

So, as I was working on the latest chapter of “The Gathering Storm” (almost done), I realized that most of the chapters and one-shot stories at the blog had no italics in them. Apparently, the previous home of my blog translated those into the <em> code in HTML instead of the <i> code. Theoretically, they […]

Getting Back to Business

Posted: 2nd August 2013 by Jeff Bouley / Deacon Blue in Announcements / General

In case you’re wondering what distracted me from getting to new fiction around here the past couple weeks, you can read this: Handy(ish)man Part 2: Revenge of the Wallpaper While you’re doing that, I’ll be getting started on some fiction…assuming that decades-old dust and wallpaper microfragments, along with paint fumes, haven’t killed all my creative […]

Almost There… (and new fiction soon)

Posted: 16th July 2013 by Jeff Bouley / Deacon Blue in Announcements / General

I’m on the last 30 or so heroes, villains, etc. to catalog in my omnibus character bio document for Tales of the Whethermen, so expect some new fiction in the near future. In the meantime, does anyone want a sampling of a few more characters (as yet unseen) like I did with a couple previous […]

A Few More Characters To Come…

Posted: 30th June 2013 by Jeff Bouley / Deacon Blue in Announcements / General

Life events, including the renovation of Number One Son’s old room into Younger Daughter’s room-to-be have kept me away from the fiction writing, but I’ve been continuing to plug away at the omnibus document of future characters here at the Whethermen site, and I see the light at the end of tunnel, which means I’ll […]

What I’ve Been Doing While You’ve Been Tapping Your Foot

Posted: 14th June 2013 by Jeff Bouley / Deacon Blue in Announcements / General

As with so many personal projects¬† in life, they not only get away from me but decide to do so at the same time that life dramas are swirling around me. I have tons of stories in my head, but you may have been wondering what I’ve been up to while you’ve been (too) patiently […]

Welcome to the New Tales of the Whethermen

Posted: 4th June 2013 by Jeff Bouley / Deacon Blue in Announcements / General

I know it doesn’t look any different, really, but there’s a new home now, as you’ll notice from the URL. Yes, I’ve gone the hosted route, and will be moving my others blogs over here too. If you were a subscriber to Tales of the Whethermen before, I don’t know if that subscription will carry […]
