Working under a deadline, plus the "real" job which pays for everything, leads to a frustrated writer forgetting to update his website. On the plus side, I'll be returning to FandomFest for a Saturday-only engagement this weekend. You may remember last year's AAR of the event (most of you found this place due to said … Continue reading This Weekend
Feeling a bit melancholy today, so I went ahead and started listening to music from the Final Fantasy series. You know, that game series that pretty much shaped my formative years (okay, Final Fantasy III and beyond)? Yeah, that one. Hey, speaking of, if it's called Final Fantasy, why are there fourteen games in the … Continue reading I Got Nothing
Ah, time for the semi-annual "Holy Crap Jason Survived Another Con" After Action Review (henceforth to be called AAR because, well, I'm lazy). For past AAR's, click here, here and here. I rolled out of Lexington a little later than I thought I would (expected to be on the road by 0900, was really on … Continue reading Holy Crap Jason Survived Another Con
I'll be leaving for MidSouthCon tomorrow morning, so this'll be a short update. Don't forget to get your free download of Janet Morris' Beyond Sanctuary today. I don't know how long it'll be at Amazon for free, so you should run and grab a copy now (just in case). No news on the publication date for anything … Continue reading See You
Brief note today since I'm still feeling under the weather. Only seven more days until MidSouthCon. Looking forward to meeting lots of new people and establishing new contacts. I've been sitting on the publishing sidelines (as it were) for the past two years, and I think it's time to venture back into the madness of … Continue reading C-4 and a Smile

The review is here (hint: I liked it) and you can like us over on Facebook (yes, we have a page there... call us sellouts if you like). On the Facebook page, tell us why you are the … Continue reading Quickies
Bad news (and some good news to offset the bad). First off, I've informed the concom at Mysticon that I will be unable to attend this year. Work is crazy right now, and one of my fellow workers is out with a major surgery. I was anticipating on him covering for me while gone, and … Continue reading Bad News (and a little bit of good thrown in)
So my programming for Mysticon has arrived and I'm excited. Not because of anything important, just that CON SEASON is upon us (at last!!!). Wanna stalk me (well, discreetly at least)? Without further ado, here is my schedule: Fri, 7:00 PM - Signing Table -- I'll be signing whatever is thrown my way: napkins, boobies, small … Continue reading Stalk Me At Mysticon
Here is your weekly freebie, courtesy once more of the amazingly talented (and award winning!!! yes, the three !!! make it seem more important. It's statistically proven!!!) Sarah A Hoyt. Witchfinder -- Chapter Three Look around on the site for the first two chapters. It's a pretty good read so far, except that I am … Continue reading Boring Updates
I'm looking at adding a few more cons to next year's schedule. Right now (assuming I'm invited back), I'm planning on attending Libertycon25 in Chattanooga, TN on July 13-15 (or 20-22). I'm already scheduled for Mysticon in Roanoke, VA on Feb 24-26 (driving through WV in Feb will be fun...). I also applied for guest … Continue reading Convention Possibilities?
Survived FandomFest, somehow. Heat was unbearable, hotel sucked, and I sold zero books. Complete loss. On the plus side, I made it home okay. Full update and AAR tomorrow. Night!
For the record, I can run on 10 hours of sleep spread across 4 days. That being said, it's not a pretty sight. Libertycon 24 was a blast, with the launch party of Lawyers in Hell as well as for selling more copies of Corruptor. So let's get this AAR-CE (After Action Report-Con Edition, for … Continue reading Libertycon 24 AAR
So yeah, I've been working the "real" job so much this past week that I haven't had time to update here. Oops. This Thursday I leave for Libertycon24 in Chattanooga, TN. Next weekend I'm in Louisville, KY for FandomFest. In between, I have a short story due. Meh. The schedule for Libertycon24 is as follows … Continue reading Weekend Road Trip
