Tonight I'm going to celebrate the end of 2013 with panache and class. Yep, I'm going to crack open a bottle of champagne, cook up some finger foods and pass out around 11:30PM. That's just how I roll. I'm so hardcore. I'm looking back over 2013 and I must say I'm rather pleased with what... Continue Reading →
Dreamers in Hell is now available for Kindle over at Amazon. The print version should be up within 24 hours (if, like me, that's what you prefer). I'm pretty certain that if you order by the end of the week, you'll have it in your hands in time to get 13 of the authors to sign... Continue Reading →
I made a huge mistake today. I got sucked back into Wikipedia. There's just something amazingly addictive about updating wiki pages while adding information, updating, and even deleting irrelevant material. It's not as though I have nothing else to do (he writes as he stares at the open word document which has been mocking him... Continue Reading →
This is the absolutely gorgeous cover for the latest anthology I'm in, coming out at the end of this month. Dreamers in Hell contains my short Ponce de Leon story, In the Shadow of Paradise. It should be on sale at Libertycon, where many of the authors (16? 17?) featured in the book will be on hand to sign copies.
Mailed off the contract for Dreamers in Hell today, which is a load off my chest. If you recall, In the Shadow of Paradise was supposed to be out in Rogues in Hell last year, but issues put it back a book. That's okay, because it's officially coming out this year. My Juan Ponce de Leon story is finally coming to... Continue Reading →
So it's late Sunday afternoon at Soldier's Retreat and I'm coming down off of the high that was the awesomeness of Mysticon 2013. Finally got to meet Col. Tom Kratman in person, which was a hoot, because that man can tell a story. Had to keep it relatively PG-13, however, due to the underage midgets... Continue Reading →
Hey, someone felt sorry for me and went ahead and let my muse speak. Scary, right? Well, here's the link. Also, writing. I'll be around for a real update soon.
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 →
There is a male cardinal on my bird feeder right now, tormenting my kitties. He chirps, they chirp back. The brainwashing has begun. Excellent... Received my first royalty check last week and (I'm rich! Rich! Bite me, haters! Muwahaha!) can now buy myself dinner. Yeah, really. Authors don't generally make a lot of money, you know?... Continue Reading →
Work (the non-writing variety) has been utterly brutal these past three weeks. I'm looking forward to a few days off, and then in a few more weeks off to Mysticon! Woohoo! Note to self: no absinthe. Not ever again. EVER. You know it's bad when I'm begging for some vodka to chase the original drink... Continue Reading →
...and we're back. Sorry for the outage. I originally was leaving up the SOPA/PIPA protest for the weekend, but on Monday I lost my internet ("Lost: Reward" posters were, inevitably, a failure) and only got back online today. That means I missed my review on SBR, lots of interesting things on the 'net... ...and the... Continue Reading →
Thought about adding a new page on the website for book covers but... eh. Once I have more book covers to share (Sha'Daa: Pawns, Adventurers in Hell and What Scares the Boogeyman?) I'll probably create the page. It's not that hard really, one of the main reasons I like WordPress so much as a website... Continue Reading →
You may have noticed that a lot of my posts are now "naked". Until this "SOPA" thing goes the way of the dodo (thanks, Congress, for making yourselves look even dumber than normal), I am being über careful about any images that go up here. LOLcatz is safe (for now), but I was in a "click... Continue Reading →
I guess I can make it official now. I have another short story, In the Shadow of Paradise, that is going to be in the next Heroes in Hell anthology, titled "Adventurers in Hell". It's a great story starring Ponce de Leon, he of the Fountain of Youth fame, and it took a lot of... Continue Reading →
I hate it when my plans all go awry. As a writer, it especially pisses me off when my characters go off on tangents without my approval (or giving me a head's up... what the hell, Tori? Your story's been told already) and force me to change direction with something I'm working on. Or when, more... Continue Reading →
