Friends, readers, everyone, lend me your ears....

I come to bury Evan Winters, not to praise him. It’s something I’ve been meaning to do for a while now, but every time I’ve approached the task, I’ve flinched. Blame it on a penchant for the dramatic. I kept thinking that if establishing a pen name was important enough to do in the first place, then the retirement of that name was important enough to undertake with a certain amount of pomp, right?

At this point, I'm thinking maybe not. Pomp seems to be slowing me down. Maybe let’s just rip the Band Aid off this thing. Here goes.

I christen thee "my blog"

Greetings, friends! Here it is: a first post to christen the blog at If my concept of what the actual reach of this thing might be as of this moment is in any way accurate, these words will be reaching a handful of personal acquaintances and possibly a few others stumbling across this site either by way of Twitter or some other social media stump which I have mounted to hock my wares. To all and sundry, I say this: welcome, my friends. I am happy to have you here.
