I know many of you (is my mom, the sole reader of this here blog, ‘many’?) won’t care, but for those of you who may, I’m now writing more… not a lot, just more, over at my new writing site: http://wombatsdigit.com/w/ Just so you know.
As you may have heard, I’ve recently published a work of historical fiction called “The History of the Mayan Ball League.” During the rash of concussions players were suffering during the course of the National Hockey League (they used to play games, you know), I began thinking about the predecessors of that professional sports league, [...]
So I’m toying around with recording the audio version of “Just Add Water,” from Final Fenway Fiction. For editing, I have a lot of PDF apps on my iPad, many of which do audio notes. I also have GarageBand. I was hoping to use GB, but it turns out either I was doing it wrong [...]
Right, it’s been a while… how does this work again? Right. Anyway.

Turns out I am a baby, I guess: Had to take that “I’m not a baby, for the love of Pete, please let me switch between apps” option off because I was switching between apps far too much. While I don’t think I’m quite doing NaNoWriMo, I managed to get in a good session of [...]
Adam Pacther and Matthew Hanlon will be reading and signing copies of Fenway Fiction and Further Fenway Fiction Saturday, October 18th, 2008 at 1pm at Charlton Public Library. Bring your copies of either Fenway Fiction, maybe get a sneak peek of the third installment of the series, and watch us shake so many hands you’ll [...]
80/1001 [From Matthew Michael Hanlon | Red Room Writer Profile | Red Room] Look, kids, that’s where it is. I’m number 80 out of 1001. Has an okay ring to it… but wouldn’t it sound so much nicer in the top 50? Top 10? We don’t have much time, but if you love me, if [...]
