Lists for 2020 Part 1

I keep getting 7 books that impact me, and 10 albums I love from facebook friends. So now that I’m in Vancouver, I thought I’d open with my lists of Josh this year. I’ll talk about them in Part 2, but I thought I’d touch on my goals for this year in my writing andContinue reading “Lists for 2020 Part 1”

The Cloud Diver

So did you enjoy the Sparkle Sparkle? I hope so. I’m really proud of the shirt and I’m really thankful for how it all turned out. Kayla Lynn did a fantastic job and once again, you should check her out at @abstractazure . She’s bad ass. But we’re not going to talk about T-Shirts today.Continue reading “The Cloud Diver”

Sparkle Sparkle, Or…How Not Killing a Unicorn led to this.

So I promised I wouldn’t kill the unicorn. I wanted to. I really did. I had a very fun, and relatively painless way to kill it, but then I got pleading eyes and I froze. Dang it. Flashback for a sec. Why did I put a unicorn in a novel? My sister requested it. IContinue reading “Sparkle Sparkle, Or…How Not Killing a Unicorn led to this.”

Pipedreams, Integrity and Reality – All In Conclusion

So I’ve listed my writing goals and podcast goals with Betting on Me Parts 1 and 2 and All In Parts 1 and 2. So what’s left to talk about? The pipedreams and the big stuff. I really hate the word real. Real is a frustrating word. It doesn’t really mean anything. To quote oneContinue reading “Pipedreams, Integrity and Reality – All In Conclusion”

Betting On…

I don’t know if reading this, you are stuck on going for it, you need to. At some point, you can’t stay safe. You have to leap. And it’s okay to fail. I know I still have long days ahead on the day job. Even going part time, there will be moments I’ll have to work more. I may have a week here or a month there, but it’s going to be less.

Ninety Percent of Your Battle

Before we begin the blog, gotta say I’m really proud of two things.  The first is I have a youtube channel now.  Hooray right?  Right as I type this thirty some odd episodes are up there for you to listen to.  My channel is here: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCBr8pyMELcMcaHLd4qTWyaw Watch and let me know what you think. The otherContinue reading “Ninety Percent of Your Battle”

Finishing

Tonight I asked an interesting question on my twitter and facebook. Do you ever get nervous finishing a story? #amwriting — Joshua Pantalleresco (@jpantalleresco) February 11, 2017 cool right? Why ask the question? I’m at the end of my latest book.  It’s not quite there yet.  In fact, I’m writing this blog because of theContinue reading “Finishing”

Unicorns that Fart Rainbows

I want to make this clear.  This wasn’t my idea. My sister made a request for my next book the Cloud Diver.  She wanted me to insert a unicorn that farts rainbows.  The nature of the universe in The Cloud Diver does allow for me to insert a unicorn that farts rainbows, and any otherContinue reading “Unicorns that Fart Rainbows”
