Just an Excuse to Buy More Useless Crap!

Hey there.

Welcome to 2011! I hope the remainder of your 2010 was upbeat, positive and full of promise for the new year. That said, here`s the latest bit of news from the Tao of Tim front lines.

Back in August I had an epiphany and started writing a new novel at an alarming pace (for me). To date I have 65,000 words of the 100,000-word project done and although I’m mostly happy with the results, the focus of this blog is the fact that the story revolves around items (real and fictional) from throughout human history.

Because I like to do mock-ups of my covers I like to use my own props from the stories. Because I’m a rabid collection of ‘stuff’, I have a wealth of items around the house. Well, apparently I didn’t have enough items for this story and just had to start collecting more, making up little stories for each of these items.

I don’t want to give away any of the story, but here are a bunch of photos of the items which appear in this new story, The Broken Shield.

I`m still looking for the Holy Grail, so if any of you have seen it, please let me know.  But… don`t tell me if you found a replica of the prop used in the movie Indiana Jones & the Last Crusade — I don`t believe that the Grail was made of wood.

Ciao for now,
