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 →
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 →
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 →
Final proof copy of Kaiju Apocalypse was turned in late last night (I think I finished going over it at around 0045). There were some formatting issues (what is it with me and screwed-up formatting?) but nothing I couldn't handle. It should be out any day now in ebook format (and maybe print). It'll be my first...

Sha'Daa: Tales of the Apocalypse was re-released this weekend. My short story, Crouching Seal, Sleeping Dragon, is in this one now (it started off in Sha'Daa: Pawns, remember? Paragon Idol, another short story I wrote in that universe, is replacing it). Cool cover. You might like it. I did. It's been a busy week or so. Con this coming weekend.... Continue Reading →
Just sold another short story to Copper Dog Publishing. My short story, "Paragon Idol", will be featured in the reprint of the Sha'Daa: Pawns anthology which is being re-released this year. If you remember, I already had a story in Pawns ("Crouching Seal, Sleeping Dragon") which was bumped to the reprint of the Sha'Daa: Tales of the Apocalypse anthology coming out... Continue Reading →
So an interesting development... As you may already know, I had a story titled Crouching Seal, Sleeping Dragon published in a shared-world type of anthology called Sha'Daa: Pawns in 2012. It was pretty well-received all in all, and I created one my favorite characters to date. Fast forward to this evening. The editor/creator of the series, Michael H. Hanson,... Continue Reading →
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 →
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 →
The Preditors & Editors voting poll has opened and, as usual, people are having a hard time getting the pages to open. It's almost like an 8th grade test website built in the 90's. For someone who claims to have been involved with the first internet service provider, his internet providing seems to, well, suck. I... Continue Reading →
The countdown for Sha'Daa: Pawns is now on. T-minus three days until the release. If you're wondering why I'm so excited, it's because my story Crouching Seal, Sleeping Dragon is featured in this little anthology. Be prepared to buy it. Why? Why not? Spread the word. Sha'Daa is coming!
This right here? It's because I believe in fair and justified torture of the fans.
Hello to all my new Russian friends! Well, at least my info says that all my more recent new visitors are from Russia. Considering I haven't been there since 1999, they must be new friends, right? Besides, it's not like I did anything wrong in Russia... or Israel... or Turkey... and we're not talking about... Continue Reading →
At the risk of incurring the wrath of the book review gods (because my reviewing schedule is as steady as the men in Kim Kardashian's life), I plan on reviewing Sygillis of Metatron (The League of Elders, Book 1) by Ben Garcia tomorrow over at Shiny Book Review. It's a strange name, yeah, but it's a... Continue Reading →
Oh wow, a day off from work. I think I remember what these feel like. I'm supposed to, uh... rest? I dunno. As I mentioned the other day, I'm waiting on two more submissions I have out right now. One of them have great chances of being picked up by the editor; the other was an... Continue Reading →
