 The Cult Of Man Utd

 More stories from my past are up on 
Sometimes fiction is not enough. Since I found and now I have an outlet for a lot of stuff I had penned, but put aside as not relevant to the hard action stuff, fiction publishers wanted. 
I'm sure I'll be caned for writing what I remember as true, but F*** it, its how I remember it. 
Never let the truth or a foggy shaggy memory get in the way of a good story;D~

I have two stories up on SoundCloud read by the excellant Darren Sant. Both have been featured on NeartoTheKnuckle website. The home of great short stories.

The first is a Spooky story about the Journey along the US Mexican border by an Irish Folk musian called Seamus. The Story is called "The Irish Nagual" Have a listen and I hope you enjoy it.

A Review of the Modern classic Pulp Modern: Issue Number #Six JFK
by this excellent blogger. Including a fine review of my story "Kingslayer"

Kingslayer by Frank Sonderborg

The most emotional story of an trained marine caught up in a conspiracy against the current president of the US of A. As all stories it has its stronghold on JFK of course, but that is only one part of it, once the lone should-be kingslayer choses another option to get out of the mess he is involved in. Beautiful language and a powerful character makes "Kingslayer" more than only an appropriate final story.

I like It

What is The Ward Room?

The Ward Room is an essential resource for authors and those who require accurate information to write realistically about the US military, firearms, and other weapons.

What kind of information does The Ward Room provide?

The Ward Room provides technical consultation that enables authors to effectively depict contemporary military and tactical operations. This includes up to date information on procedures, strategic methodology, rank structure, weapons, basic unit complement, patrolling methods, equipment, vehicles, and many other topics related to today’s military forces. For many authors, this technical consultation is especially necessary to write about the proper use of firearms and other weaponry.

                     Excellent advice from Chris Brecheen 

                              From his Blog 

          Writing About Writing (And Occasionally Some Writing)

             15 Terrifying Things That Will Make You A Better Writer 

Number 8- Acknowledge That You Do Not Possess The Golden Pen Of Dripping Honey

You just aren't that awesome.  Your every written word is not brilliance made manifest that sends your readers into paroxysms of ecstasy.

Get over it.

It's a tough lesson, but you are not that great of a writer.  Really.  You're not.  I'm not just saying that.  You might be competent.  Possibly even good.  But if Hemingway could acknowledge his room for improvement, you can too. - See more at:

The Great American Sentence: A Contest

From EasyStreetMag

Send us a sentence. The first sentence of your book, or just a stand-alone, a string of words minding their own business. In fact, send up to five sentences. We’ll publish the ones we like best, and we’ll pay the winner $5 a word.
Or $10 a word, if the contestant includes a link to a social media post promoting the contest.

Submit up to five sentences to, by midnight EST 28 February. They must be your own work. Paste all sentences into the body of the email. Include a link to at least one of your social media sites (Facebook, Twitter, a personal blog, etc.), one that shares the contest by linking to this post. A contestant who includes such a link will be eligible for $10 a word, if she wins. A contestant who doesn’t will be eligible for $5 a word. Then wait patiently while we read the entries. Dream of that trip to Branson.

AQ! (Anticipated Questions)
Does the sentence have to be the first sentence of an actual book?
No, you can just make one up. In fact, if you’re smart, you’ll make another one up, and another, and finish the book, and thank us in the acknowledgements.

What if I write a sentence that goes on and on? Won’t you owe me a lot of money?
Yes, because you’ll certainly win with a run-on sentence. Remember how much your high school creative writing teacher loved them?

Why do we have to do the social media thing? Aren’t we marketing on your behalf?
Indeed. It’s the entire purpose of the contest—to promote our new journal. However, if you’d rather pay a submission fee . . .
