About Thomas Weaver

For several years, I’ve been putting my uncanny knack for grammar and punctuation, along with an eclectic mental collection of facts, to good use as a Wielder of the Red Pen of Doom (editor). I'm physically disabled, and I currently live with my smugly good-looking twin Paul, who writes military science fiction and refuses to talk about his military service because he can’t. Sometimes Paul and I collaborate on stories, and sometimes I just edit whatever he writes. It's worked out rather well so far. My list of non-writing-related jobs from the past includes librarian, art model, high school teacher, science lab gofer… Although I have no spouse or offspring to tell you about, I do have eight cats. I currently spend my time blogging, reading, editing, and fending off cats who like my desk better than my twin’s.

Gregory S. Close’s science fantasy novel Greyspace is now on KindleVella

He’s not actually doing this to bribe us (my clone-sibling and I), but there was at one time a deal struck that we’d finish “that novel” if he finished Greyspace… No wonder he asked me just a couple days ago … Continue reading

Editing status: boss fight

I’m about two-thirds of the way through the manuscript, at least. I would have had this one done months ago, but various real-life circumstances (mostly health problems) got in the way of me even working on it. (You know me: … Continue reading

I should have just watched the damn movie…

[I started writing this post more than a month ago, in early May. There’s a longer version — yes, really — that’s still a work-in-progress, but today seems like a good day to share at least part of it.] Back … Continue reading

In case you need a laugh today

Something funny my clone-sibling just told me… Scientists have decoded the signal from Alpha Centauri: “We’ve been trying to reach you about your extended auto warranty…”

Announcement about “that novel” (*)

Friends, we have artwork: If you’ve read Paul’s previous novels, you may recall the Amundsen being mentioned in The Madness Engine. Here are a couple of paragraphs from that portion of the novel: One of the towers stood empty, but … Continue reading

(office kitty)

Another old post, but everyone likes to see cute cat photos, right? I also just realized that I never shared any of the photos Grace took of IttyBitty while all the cats were spending a few hours in Paul’s office … Continue reading

(plausible)

I typed most of this in May of 2019 — where does the time go? *shakes head* I’m having more than a little bit of anxiety — okay, nearly panic at times — because of something Grace told me she’d … Continue reading

Sometimes, he takes a break from editing, and then something funny happens.

I suppose it’s good to know that “flash-precog” thing is still working… There I was, copyediting Paul’s latest novel. Got to the very beginning of that scene, the one I’ve been waiting for since practically forever. Decided to take a … Continue reading

*drinks coffee… picks up red pen*

Monday afternoon, my clone-sibling (*wonders if this means Paul is also able to wield the Red Pen of Doom — y’know, just in case*) handed over the manuscript for the fifth book of The Awakening series. Notice that I’m not … Continue reading

New year, new look…

You’re not imagining things: I did change my avatar/profile photo. Temporarily, anyway. The ginormous coffee mug seems appropriate, considering the novel my clone-sibling and I have been working on lately. (Shortest explanation: the person in charge of the Roald Amundsen‘s … Continue reading
