on the covers for more infomation
Welcome to the Cenotaph Road website,
Robert E. Vardeman proprietor
Been working to revamp the Swords of Raemllyn ebooks. Went through
looking for typos again and then put new covers on the final six
titles. Above are some of them via Smashwords. Check them all
Demons Bound is currently free. If you want anything other
than Kindle, follow that click. Otherwise, until April 27, the
first 50 folks can snag a free Amazon copy by clicking here.
Make April your Raemllyn month. New covers, fresh content, great
reading and adventure.
Looked over the proofs on my Straight Outta Tombstone
weird western "Sixth World" and ok'd it. So all good
to go on that front.
The Wolf Creek story (for the Fist of the Dragon mosaic
novel) is turned in and apparently liked enough for inclusion.
I amaze myself with how sleazy the Wil Marsh character is. This
time around he's convincing the Wolf Creek gullible that he can
take pictures of their soul--and charges mightily for it. This
on his way to fixing a fight.
Spent chunks of the week doing business stuff as well as fun.
Business included a FB seminar on how to pay them money for putting
ads on FB. Scary listening to how specific they can get in targeting
the right demographic. When The Major Arcanium Gazette
gets going, I will give FB a try to see what traffic I can scare
up. So if you are a left-handed heterochromic Lithuanian who stutters,
you might be in my demographic. But it doesn't matter--FB has
you pegged in their database.
The final science fair of the season was judged on Wednesday.
Nothing outstanding this year but the 4th and 5th grade kids were
incredibly enthusiastic about their projects and used tech that
was unheard of a few years ago for the simplest things. One girl
found what music lulled her two puppies to sleep fastest (not
sure Adele wants to hear the results...) She watched them via
a video link and had the iPad with her so we could watch the puppies
streaming live. Another kid I hope learns something about systems,
balances and how the world works, otherwise when he grows up he
will suffocate us all. He was really, really enthusiastic about
scrubbing all CO2 from the air. I did learn about the vaquita,
the most endangered species in the world from the head of the
Natural History Museum--thanks for the sobering info, Mike.
Theatrical movies: Nothing. And the trailer for the new Star
Wars looked kinda boring, actually. For a while watching it, I
thought it might be for a new Harry Potter movie. Really. It
had the look and sound.

Newer stuff about weird westerns I've read.
My e-books on the catalog
page. Great stuff.
iPad viewing: Need chewing gum for the mind. Watching Father
Brown on Netflix. An inoffensive cozy series cashing in on the
foibles of the British upper class.
iPad reading: Sneaking a few pages here and there on Jim Butcher's
steampunk novel, trying to save it for a long upcoming trip. I
need to read more of his stuff.
iPad listening: Pandora has become intolerable with several ads
after every song or two. Over to Spotify where a short ad gives
30 min of music. At least for the time being.
