My Thoughts on the Xbox One DRM Policy

Update: Literally minutes after posting this, a rumor surfaced that Microsoft may be announcing the removal of DRM and online check-ins for the Xbox One. It turns out this is true and everything I wrote below is rubbish.

All of the video game world (well those who live and breathe it at least) could not overlook the DRM issues involving the release of the Xbox One coming this holiday. Now that the dust has settled on exactly what is going on with the Xbox One, here is my take on things.

The Permanent Man Blog #10 - Pilot Cover

Currently, I've written the first six episodes of season one of The Permanent Man. I still need to come up with a title for episode six, but it will hit me at some point. Since I had my third child last week, I do expect a delay before I get back into writing the remaining episodes. I expected this though, and that's why I set a release date for the series of November 12, 2013.

Mohu Leaf Antenna Review

While I typically reserve this blog for information on books I've written and will be writing, I thought I would share this.

For television viewing, I cut the cord last Summer and use Hulu, Netflix, and PlayOn for all my television needs. But a few weeks ago, my wife wanted to be able to watch live TV, so I bought an antenna to get some over the air channels.

The antenna I purchased was the Mohu Leaf Antenna and it works really well. Below is a video review I made of the antenna in case you are interested in purchasing one.

The Permanent Man Blog #9 - She Had A Baby

Parker Benjamin - 6/10/13
While I had planned to show the cover for the first episode of The Permanent Man, this week's blog update isn't about the series at all.

That's because my beautiful wife gave birth to our third child this past week. Parker Benjamin was born Monday at 12:40 a.m. He weighed in at 8 lbs 9. oz. and was 21 inches long. He's the runt of the three children as the other two came in at 9 lbs. 7 oz. and 9 lbs. 10 oz.

The Permanent Man Blog #8 - The Tease & Title

In television, The Tease is that little three to eight minute clip that starts a television show. It typically gives a glimpse of the problem to come for the story. Or  it shows a situation in the story that is a focal point. After the commercial break, the story continues or you see what events led up to The Tease.

Summer Ebook Savings

For the summer months, people plan all kinds of activities. Vacations. Barbecues. Days at the beach. And the list becomes endless as children have summer vacation and their parents take them places.

All of this increased activity means less time for reading. And because of this, I'm offering all my eBooks at a discounted rate during June. This will give young and old alike some incentive to do a little reading during the summer.

All my short stories are $0.99 each. Keep in mind that all my short stories have a bonus story included with it. For instance, Copy Bird also contains the bonus story The Present.

All my novels and short story collections are discounted to $2.99 each. Along with that, Miscorrection Trilogy, which contains all three novels in the Miscorrection trilogy (duh? right?) is only $7.99.

Check out my Print & Digital book availability page to find a book that interests you and your favorite eBook retailer where you can buy it.

Enjoy!
