Wyvacon 2021 Okay, so first off, it's Why-vuh-con and not Wiv-uh-con like I thought. Yeah, English continues to bully me, even when I try to speak it and claim to be one of those writer types as my full-time job. I had a lot of fun at Wyvacon this year. Granted, I always have a … Continue reading Wyvacon 2021 AAR — The Unnamed Virus of Unspecified Origin Edition
This weekend's Wyvacon schedule looks pretty exciting. I know I'm looking forward to a good time. Bonus -- Wyvacon has said that anyone under the age of 16 gets in for free with one adult paid admission. So if you pay for your ticket, your three kids get in for free. It's that family-friendly. It's … Continue reading Wyvacon Weekend
Yeah, I don't normally see a book release on a Monday, but this is a special case. Today, the Salvage Universe anthology, IT TAKES ALL KINDS, was released into the wild. Created by Kevin Steverson, the first three books (SALVAGE TITLE, SALVAGE FLEET, and SALVAGE SYSTEM) have been optioned for a movie already and is … Continue reading Release Day
The release date was bumped up for "IT TAKES ALL KINDS", an anthology set in Kevin Steverson's Salvage Universe. It's now coming out on September 13. I'll have a link up once it goes live. I have a short story in this titled "A Most Dangerous Game." Fun little short story of "who's the best … Continue reading Release Updates
This links to KU collection. Click the link. Click it. Cleeeeeeeeeeeek it. My publisher, Theogony Books, moved all of the Kin Wars books back onto Kindle Unlimited today. We're super excited about this because it means those who prefer to read primarily through the KU program can now delve into the Espinoza family adventures. Yes, … Continue reading The Kin Wars on Kindle Unlimited
I know a lot of people hate on Larry Correia because of his politics, but nobody can state with any honesty that he doesn't understand business. He and Steve Diamond (another accountant... what's up with the accountants taking over writing?) host a weekly podcast called WriterDojo, which is designed to help out those who are … Continue reading WriterDojo
My sometimes co-author/editor Jamie Ibson has a book coming out this Friday. It's his first ever standalone book in his own universe. You want to get in on the ground floor of some sweet, sweet all-new cyberpunk? This is your chance. Available this Friday on Amazon -- URBICIDE, Book One of Myrmidons, Inc. Also, you … Continue reading URBICIDE — Coming Sept 3
It used to be amusing. Back when I was first starting out, I kept people more up-to-date with what was going on in my every day life. Between reviewing books (and we reviewed a lot of them over at Shiny Book Review), working 100+ hours a week, maintaining some semblance of sanity in the home … Continue reading And Then The Author Lost His Cool
Ah, there's nothing quite like the smell of raw sewage in the morning. Somewhere near my house there's a sewer line issue. It's not my house, thankfully. At least, I'm pretty sure it's not. Fortunately, the smell isn't really noticeable in my office or bedroom. Anywhere there's an open window, though... ugh. I'm currently taking … Continue reading Good Morning Stench
It's tough to write during the dog days of summer. Especially when you're like me and don't function well in the heat. I swear my next house will have central A/C and good insulation. I've been doing a lot of quiet "behind the scenes" stuff when it comes to writing the past few weeks. Primarily, … Continue reading Dog Days
The Salvage Universe, created by Kevin Steverson, is really expanding. I was fortunate enough to have been invited to participate in an anthology in the universe. Today the cover was revealed and it is very retro 60's science fiction. I'm a huge fan of this style and really enjoy it. "It Takes All Kinds" will … Continue reading It Takes All Kinds
WINTERBORN, Book 1 of the Kin Wars Legacy (but Book 5 in the Kin Wars Universe), by NTLT Productions. This cover is noice! WINTERBORN will be released on November 9, 2021.
HOMEGUARD, Book 4 of the Kin Wars Saga, just had the audiobook drop over on Audible. Rob Saladino narrates the final book of the saga once more and, as usual, does a bang-up job of it. You should burn one of those audible credits on it. Also... in the next few days I'll be having … Continue reading Audiobook is Live
I received my first Guest of Honor for a convention this coming September. I'll be the Guest of Honor at WyvaCon, a science fiction and gaming convention in Wytheville, VA this coming September 18--19, 2021. I've been an attending guest the past few times I attended and always had a good time. I'm really looking … Continue reading Guest of Honor
I've been taking a break from a lot of things online as I rushed to finish a short story. The story, "A Most Dangerous Game," should be seen in an upcoming Salvage Universe anthology (created by Kevin Steverson) in the near-future. I was happy with it and the editor enjoyed the story, so hopefully the … Continue reading A Month Already? Oops.
