My thoughts on the Star Wars Prequels

Posted by Larry Yoakum III on May 13, 2019 at 2:25 PM Comments comments (0)

OK, first off, I love Star Wars and everything it involves. The Force, the criminal underworld, the Republic military ships, and, OK, even those insipid Ewoks. I love Legends and Canon both.   That being said, there are three major issue I've always had with the Prequels, and NO, I'm not saying I hate the Prequels or that they're not as good or whatever other arguments there may be.


My major issues are:


1 - Anakin being a littl...

Reality is up for grabs

Posted by Larry Yoakum III on April 14, 2019 at 9:15 AM Comments comments (0)
The subject is reality. Many of the truths we cling to depend greatly on our own point of view. OK, that's not mine. That's from Return of the Jedi. But it's apt. So, on with my topic at hand. Our perception is our reality. One man's reality can be another's fantasy. Who's to say what is true and what is only in our heads? If one person believes enough in something, whether or not you think it is foolish or stupid, to that person, it is real. Perhaps this was how all the philosop... Read Full Post »

The Targothian Trilogy

Posted by Larry Yoakum III on April 9, 2019 at 2:50 PM Comments comments (0)

OK, I know it isn't Sunday, but it's my blog and I'll post if I want to. 

I'm sure I've mentioned this in my YouTube channel, but I'll put it here, too.  The Targothian originally was going to be 9 novellas.  Instead, I have turned it into a trilogy.  The original Books 1, 2, and 3 are now The Targothian: Sargas.  Books 4, 5, 6 will be The Targothian: Crimson Death (which is now being written and I'm shooting for the end of the year or the beginning of 2020).&#...

Witching Hour: Zodiac

Posted by Larry Yoakum III on April 7, 2019 at 9:15 PM Comments comments (0)
Hello there. Time for my weekly blog entry. I hope everyone had a great weekend and is ready for the week ahead. I wanted to let you know, in case I hadn't already, that come October, I will be published in an anthology series. The Witching Hour: Zodiac. The premise is awesome. Each author has been assigned an aspect of the Zodiac at random and will write a horror related story about that sign. The one I was given was Gemini. My story's working title is Gemini: Mandela Effect. Basically... Read Full Post »

Greetings to all.  It is I, your friendly neighborhood underground indie author.  After a long time away from the Ramblings, I am back.  Don't worry, I'll still be doing my YouTube videos, but I think I should also do this in order to give my rabid readers something to slake their thirst in between books.  This will be the place to be if you want to see what deals I offer on my books, my upcoming works in progress, scheduled book signings, and on occassion the things that ...

Thanks to those of you who have been keeping up with my work.  You people are awesome!

I hate to get political...but

Posted by Larry Yoakum III on January 19, 2017 at 2:35 PM Comments comments (0)

Not writing related, but let me just say, I am getting fucking sick of partisan politics. I have friends both Democrat and Republican, but they’re constantly demonizing the other side. I find that highly fucktarded. Do people not realize that there is ONE government, and they can control us by dividing us amongst ourselves? Makes us easier to control. I don’t like to get political, because I don’t see the point in “left” and “right” ideas. Peopl...

Come on 2017. Let's do this dance!

Welcome back to the blog, my rabid readers. I have been away too long. Part of my New Years resolution is to write in Yoakum’s Ramblings more. Maybe once a week if I can discipline myself enough.

What has been going on…

First off, Redcap may be made into an indie film sometime in 2018. I have been talking to My Little Rascal Productions. They are looking for stories to turn into low budget indie films. It won’t be chock full of special effects, but the stor...

New books a comin

Wow, sorry.  I didn't realize I haven't posted a blog entry in so long.  I've been busy with my usual crap.

Right now, I am working on The Targothian:  Book V.  It will publish in March.  Every March will be a new installment until I am finished with the series, still planning on 9 books, and a 10th book of short stories with the origins of the side characters.  Book IV is still publishing in December.  I am doing that just because I don't want to push...
