About Us

Robert Reed Mythlife | A travelogue through written word. . . Travelogues sind Sammlungen von Reiseberichten, in denen Einzelpersonen ihre Erlebnisse und Erfahrungen schildern. Travelogues sind ebenfalls oftmals Bestandteil von webbasierten Reiseführern. Auf eine sehr subjektive, aber unter Umständen gerade deshalb hilfreiche Art werden Informationen, die das komplette Spektrum von der Zielauswahl bis zu den Angeboten vor Ort abdecken können, in Textform präsentiert. In einer Art Berichtsforum können einzelne Reisende ihre Berichte einstellen, wo sie geografisch und/oder thematisch sortiert abrufbar sind. Eine integrierte Feedback-Funktion erlaubt es den Nutzern zu bewerten, wie hilfreich ein Reisebericht war.


A travelogue through written word. . .


Madness, it takes its toll

No moss is growing on this writer…

I know I am a sporadic blogger, but the reality is that I am trying to post when I have something to say.  I have come to the conclusion that MY blog is about my writing, my life and if I do not have something to say I’m not going to fake it.

That being said, holy shit have I been busy.

I just returned from our family summer vacation.  We went to a guest ranch in the Pikes Peak wilderness. If you are into the outdoors and the mythology of the American West it is a fantastic experience.  7500 elevation does take it out of a person though.  I will let the photos speak for the experience.

So we made it home from vacation safe and sound and promptly went to pick up our new puppy, June.  She is home and being puppyish.  This includes all the good and bad things puppies do.  I need to emphasis DO… Need I say more?

Something I have not spoken about is that I left my earlier company in March.  I spent April and May looking and early this month agreed to join a new company.  I want to make sure the founders are cool with my discussing it, but it is a small, super cool marketing company working primarily in the technology space.  I am coming in as the first sales person.  Previously the CEO has done most of the sales work, but they have grown enough to need more focus.  Super cool company folks and I am very excited about it.  I start on the 20th of the month and flying out to the Research Triangle for a week on campus this Sunday.

So let me recap… Two months of job hunting, super intense mountain vacation in Colorado, new puppy, new job.

I also got 300 pages edited on Gears of the Earth and wrote perhaps 50k words of new material for some short stories.

Needless to say I’m kind of zonked out, but feeling good about it all.

I hope all of my tens of readers out there are doing well.  I’m sorry I have been Captain Sporadic from the planet Poster, but you will have to forgive me.

How about yourselves?



Full surrender

I have surrendered to the unending onslaught delivered by my offspring in demand of a pet.

I give you, JUNEBUG


She is so… FLUFFY


Two things

To hell with the Five Things rule. I have TWO things. If you are hungry and you have two ingredients that is what you get. A meal composed of two things.

If you are hungry for a blog post from me, you get TWO THINGs.

  1. I am fifty pages from finishing edits and revisions on my current Alternate Historical Fantasy, “The Gears of the Earth” If you would like to be a reader for the near-to-final manuscript please email me at seamusbayne @ gmail.com
  2. Those who know me in the real world know I parted ways with my previous Day Job in March. I am pleased to say I should have some very positive news to announce later this week or early next about my next grand adventure, and it is awesome. What makes it even cooler is there is a direct overlap between my Day Job and my writing (The night job).

How is everyone doing out there?
What is your favorite charity that you have donated to to help out the folks in Joplin?
