So my very first Dragoncon is in the books and I gotta say, with a few exceptions I had the best time of my life. So without much ado, rewind to 9 days ago... I was going to leave Wednesday originally but work requirements prevented this from happening. So instead I left the house at … Continue reading 2018 Dragoncon AAR (and long awaited update)
I swear, I look down, get back to writing, look back up... and it's almost been a month since an update. How does time do this to me? Well, this week I had not one but TWO cover reveals occur. The first one is the one that everybody has been waiting for, and HOLY CRAP … Continue reading Two Cover Reveals!
Yes, the title is correct. Darkling is now live and available over on Amazon. I'm super excited about this. How excited? So excited I'm going to be running a giveaway for a copy of Wraithkin, Darkling, and Kraken Mare, all autographed. All you need to do is Tweet it, tag me in it (@warpcordova), and voila! one entry. You can also tag … Continue reading Darkling is LIVE
Darkling will be live and on sale April 13, 2018. **cue dramatic screaming from my tens of fans** Book 2 of the Kin Wars Saga will continue the story of Gabriel and Andrew, as well as introducing a new set of eyes to the novel. It also tears your freaking heart out (so I'm told by first … Continue reading Release Date Announcement
Two things... First off, Darkling is finished! It's now off and in the hands of the Super Mega Awesome Beta Force Crew for dissemination and assassination. Book 2 of the Kin Wars Saga had a ton of heartache, loyalty, and betrayal. Let the song of victory play! https://youtu.be/MH9FyLsfDzw Secondly, my article about the current kerfuffle within the … Continue reading Finished and Other News
Cedar had an interesting post yesterday over at the Mad Genius Club (I actually missed the original post because I've been buried by basketball and finishing a book) and after reading it, I got to thinking (run! hide the women and children! he had two brain cells crash into one another on accident!) about professionalism … Continue reading Wronged Way
Today is the release of the long-awaited first book of a brand new series I'm writing. Wraithkin is out and available in both print and e-format, and the early reviews is that all my hard work has come to fruition with this book. Run and buy, share, talk about it. Publicity never hurt a writer.
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 On Reviews For Authors
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 … Continue reading Too Stubborn
Yesterday, over on Facebook, I kinda sorta touched on the new HarperCollins digital watermark, which is another updated rendition of their failed attempts (thus far, apparently) at a secure and impenetrable DRM. Those pesky pirates are costing publishers a lot of money, so of course the natural response is to put even more money into … Continue reading Digital Watermarking the Grave
There are some nice deals going on this week. Kaiju Apocalypse is currently on sale for only $0.99. This is would be the perfect time to get the first book in the series and try it out and see if it's up your alley. Also on sale is Murder World: Kaiju Dawn for only $0.99 as well. … Continue reading On Sale Now
I was looking over my map of Weslande (my fantasy world I'm building around the story of I, Godslayer) and I saw that I had made a massive cathedral made of crystal in the middle of a vast desert. I was sort of surprised (I don't remember doing it, but I make so many maps I … Continue reading Influences
Murder World: Kaiju Dawn is currently on sale for a mere $0.99 right now on Amazon Kindle (Prime members get it for free, as always). You really, really should buy it. Then review it. Then tell all your friends about how you'd sell your second born for the sequel (first born is a bit steep).
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 Libertycon 27 AAR
I guest blogged over at Sarah Hoyt's site today. More on the Marion Zimmer Bradley issue, how it relates, and me asking why the SFWA hasn't kicked out their 2013 Grand Master and open pederast Samuel Delaney. I, uh, kinda lost my cool a bit. I'm going radio silent for the weekend. I won't be … Continue reading Guest Blogging Elsewhere and Libertycon Schedule
