On Reviews For Authors


So at a very odd hour late last night, I went ahead and wrote a review over at Shiny Book Review. To say that it was an adventure is an understatement. Reputedly, this author has a history of lashing out at reviewers, so we'll see just how interesting things get around here. I mentioned elsewhere that... Continue Reading →

No Time


T-minus five days and counting until Honorcon. You might be wondering what panels I'll be doing, or what I plan on talking about, but you may be surprised to know that I'm actually working this convention for The Official Honor Harrington Fan Association. Being the Volunteer Coordinator is, well, a job that nobody wanted so... Continue Reading →

Too Stubborn


Air! I can breathe! In all seriousness, it feels like I've been drowning in my writing the past few months. Ever since Eric and I wrapped up Kaiju Apocalypse III, it seems like my head has been underwater when it comes to writing. I may have burned myself out a bit (writing 4 books in 4...

Libertycon 27 AAR


So Libertycon 27 came to a close and all in all, it went tremendously well. I met new people, made new friends, ran into old friends, made a fool of myself (this is typical) and am now dealing with a very screwed up sleep schedule. So I rolled into Libertycon about three in the afternoon... Continue Reading →

The Dilemma of Us


Late last night, while watching an absolutely atrocious movie, I had a thought experiment come to mind. I dismissed it quickly enough, since the whole point that the director tried to make was his attempt to cause the viewer to "think" (when, in reality, the message was more "I'm smarter and morally superior than you", but whatever),... Continue Reading →

Ewww


Since Kaiju Apocalypse II is being released this weekend (or next week, not entirely sure at this time), Eric and I are working on the third book and final book of the series right now (untitled, but I'd lay money on something like Kaiju Apocalypse III. Fits the theme, ya know?). We also happen to be working... Continue Reading →

Murder World Is Out


So remember when I said that Kaiju Apocalypse was on sale for $0.99 for the upcoming release of Murder World: Kaiju Dawn? Well, that was one short wait, wasn't it? Well, the Kindle version of Murder World: Kaiju Dawn is out and available now. Best of all, there was a slight cover change (I'm a horrible human being). You should... Continue Reading →

Cover Reveal! Murder World: Kaiju Dawn


Similar in appearance to Kaiju Apocalypse (but a different universe and story altogether, I promise) here is the rough draft cover for Murder World: Kaiju Dawn. Co-authored with Eric S. Brown again (we make quite the team -- this is the third book we've collaborated on in the past 8 months), it should see a release over the next... Continue Reading →

Sold! And Please Tip Your Waiter


That turnaround time has to be some sort of record. Murder World has a new title and a home. Severed Press (those who brought you Kaiju Apocalypse by myself and Eric S. Brown) bought it Wednesday morning (less than 12 hours after we finished it), and we decided to go with a different title. It's now Murder World: Kaiju Dawn. Why... Continue Reading →

Cover Reveal


And, at long last, I can show off the cover for Hero's Best Friend, which contains my story Hill 142, the untold (and completely alternate) version of the Battle of Belleau Wood during World War One.   Edit: Oh, I probably should mention that this is coming out in the next few weeks from Seventh Star Press. Here's... Continue Reading →

End of Year Time


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 →

The Accidental Lecture


I sent off Homeworld: Rockfall to my coauthor Eric Brown yesterday afternoon. The first draft is done (yeah, I was slacking) and though it "only" took about 5 weeks to write, that was a rough five weeks. While the book itself isn't the longest thing I've ever written (I'm looking at you, Corruptor) it is, by far,... Continue Reading →

And Now, The News


I realized that I can't post a review of The Doctor and the Dinosaurs (Mike Resnick) yet due to the simple fact that it won't be published until December. So, uh, yeah... whoops? On the plus side, that means I can go ahead and rush my next review, which is Discount Armageddon (Seanan McGuire). It was a fun, light... Continue Reading →

#amwriting


#amwriting is, apparently, my most popular Twitter hashtag. For some reason, it's about a million other peoples as well. Seriously, I am the least original person in the world sometimes. I'm still waiting to hear back about  Hill 142. Patience is not my strong point, especially when I'm more than ready to crank out more stuff... Continue Reading →

Remove Blockage Here


I'm doing some random posting today, so if you don't want to read a very meandering post, kindly step away from the computer. It'll be for the best. I'm stuck. I'm really effing stuck. Not a writer's block, no. It's more of a "this character did this and now she's got me stuck" kind of... Continue Reading →
