Ed Black has built two worlds for himself: the real world with the company he founded and the woman he loves, and the dream world created from all his life experiences, both real or imaginary.
When a spirit inhabiting Ed's stereo steals his life in the real world, he finds himself stumbling through the bizarre world of his imagination. The search begins for the Checkered Scissors, a tool believed to cut between worlds.
Unfortunately, the owner of the Scissors lost them when he accidentally stumbled into the real world. Worlds apart, they must find their way back before the nightmarish Mr. Pinkerton, a mad scientist who loathes everything about Ed and his world, gets his sinister hands on the Checkered Scissors.
Checkered Scissors, Douglas Schwartz's first novel, is a whimsical, light fantasy.

I've fixed a bug in the blog's Random-Anonymous-Name-Generator-inator. It worked too well and overwrote any name with a randomly generated one. Oops.
The Checkered Scissors sequel is on the iPad for me to read through it and make notes for the next wave of editing.
Several months ago, I had written scripts for six episodes of The Mr. Doug Show, intended to be a YouTube series. Revisiting this, I've made some notes on how to improve it.
The first draft of the Scooby Doo fan-fiction is done.
I've set a goal to try to post one writing blog each Wednesday. I got a jump on this and wrote a few extras. Also, to help keep up with blogs, I have pulled many of the old writing blogs from LiveJournal. Hopefully, this will help me keep up with my blogging goals.
Finally, on Saturday, I volunteered at a book drive to help collect books for the reconstruction of Port Arthur's public library that was destroyed during hurricane Harvey. While I was there, we gathered fifty boxes filled with books. After I left, we gathered another ten boxes. This was just the first of a few book drives we will have over the summer. Off to a fantastic start.
