Friday, May 1st, 2015 - Random

I’ve just recently finished watching Voyager. It’s a coincidence that it also happens to be the show’s 20th anniversary. I’m exhausted watching this terrible show and it has taken me months (over a year?) to reach this point. I went back and started watching all of Star Trek in chronological order. I blazed through shows, […]

Sunday, March 29th, 2015 - Publishing, Writing

Over at one of the writer’s boards I frequent, there’s been a lot of threads about people quitting. Don’t worry, I’m not going to quit any time soon. Those that know me know that quitting’s not in my nature. Reading their threads, I started to wonder why they wanted to quit? They all complained about […]

I had so much fun writing up this post http://www.marcanthonyjohnson.com/?p=1904 I thought I’d do another one. Sadly, a few of the shows I watched last season got canned. I’m sure that will happen this go around too. HONORABLE MENTION: SELFIE If I had written this post before Selfie got cancelled, it probably would have made […]

The Renaissance of the Indie

Saturday, January 31st, 2015 - Publishing, Random

I think in a few years or maybe after I’m long dead, when we look back at this period in history, I believe it will be known as the Time of the Indie. I’m not specifically just talking about indie authors, but indie filmmakers, indie game developers, and indie musicians. As I think about it, […]

Wednesday, December 31st, 2014 - Random

As a whole, 2014 sucked. I had to move twice, haven’t gone out on a single date, didn’t release Reawakening, didn’t cross anything off my list, my bow broke, didn’t start the Deadlands RPG, didn’t reach Legend in Hearthstone, and didn’t go out on a single date. I feel that last one needed to be […]

Saturday, November 22nd, 2014 - Writing

Recently, I had to skim/re-read my first book, CATALYST, for something I’d love to talk about, but won’t come out til next year so I won’t. There was something that immediately struck me as I read the words I had written years ago. Hellsfire is young. I don’t mean that he’s young in a chronological […]

Locked Into Amazon

Saturday, September 20th, 2014 - Publishing

As a consumer, I am a HUGE Amazon fan. I love their cheaper prices, fast shipping, and excellent customer service. Yet despite all that, when it comes to being a published author, I’ve never much cared for them. Sure, I love their extremely generous royalty rate, monthly payments, price adjustments, sales reports, and pre-orders, but […]

I’ve come to realize that I have grown up in a golden age. Whether it be video games, movies, TV shows, music, or cartoons, I was there through it all as some of the best stuff was ever created during that time period. I love cartoons. You’ll often find me tweeting about them, which means […]
