Hello, everyone! Another month, another peek at the days ahead. So, without further ado, let’s hit this July’s Onward: Phew, what a month June was! I’m incredibly pleased with how the release of Cradle of Sea and Soil went down. Reviews are trickling in and I have at least one from a blogger in the works; hopefully others will pick … Read More

Searching for the Path Toward a Better World

Bernie Anés PazLife & ThoughtsLeave a Comment

So, I haven’t spoken directly about the recent chain of racial events and outrage—specifically, but not limited to—the death of Floyd. Part of this is because I dislike politics and social posturing and my hobbies are where I go to escape from the dreary state of the world, not re-submerge myself into it. It’s within fantasy, whether a novel, video … Read More

June is here, and, you know, I decided it’d be cool to start writing little monthly catch-alls for the positive things of interest to me that are going down. Looking forward to the good stuff was what kept me sane during my time in the military, even if it was something stupid and small like lunch or dinner, and with … Read More

Heya! Another super late update from me. I’m doing fine, still alive, financially secure, and in good health. Been mostly doing drafts on Cradle of Sea and Soil and getting through my Steam backlog during breaks. I’ve mostly kept my head down and focused on getting my novel out, which has worked out pretty well. I’m very proud of Cradle … Read More

COVID-19 is affecting the world in many, many ways, and here in the United States, it’s no different. Oregon has invoked shutdown policies all across the state, … Read More

Dog of the Day: Tilda, Lover of Love

This week’s dog is Tilda! Look at that adorable face. And yes, she’s really that sweet. Let me tell you right now that this isn’t the case for every dog. Yes, I firmly believe there aren’t any truly bad dogs, just dogs with at worst dangerous behavioral issues. Most of them stem from biological problems or trauma/bad training. Then you … Read More

Dog of the Day: Odie the Judgmental

Bernie Anés PazLife & ThoughtsLeave a Comment

So, I work with dogs. Very good for writing since I just sort of watch them sleep. But they also provide me with a much needed “mental recharge” when things get kind of rough in either my normal or writing life. Actually, studies have proven that people with pets generally live longer and have less stress levels. Even though these … Read More
