Hugo Season

So apparently it's Hugo season again (didn't we just do this?), though this year I'm thinking "Yeah, I lost a lot of time and energy last year dealing with that public smear campaign. I'm not even going to pay attention this year." Seriously. In 2014 I managed to get a ton of writing done. 2015?... Continue Reading →

The End Is Nigh!

...for Kraken Mare, at least. Chris and I locked up the "end" of the main story (one more subplot to tie up) last night and now I'm filling gaps while he's cleaning up the final fight scene. Which is fortuitous timing: publisher shot me an email today asking for a status update. Whew! My brain has... Continue Reading →

Topical Agent for Boredom Seekers

"Hey Jason, you're going to have Kraken Mare done before the New Year's, right?" "Of course!" *snort* I should have known better than to tempt fate... I had anticipated on my real-life job lessening the workload come the holiday season (traditionally, that's what happens, according to everyone else).

It's available for pre-order now at Amazon, and I finally saw the final cover. Looks good. I've always wanted a Kurt Miller cover, even if it's not precisely "mine".


At 5:10 PM Eastern time last night, my beloved Sophie crossed the Rainbow Bridge. Growing up in group homes, I never had a pet of my own. In retrospect it's understandable, because most kids aren't in one particular location for a long time. Back then, however, I was angry and mad that all the other... Continue Reading →

Cat Scratch Fever

There is nothing like being woken up in the morning by screaming and grabbing your face because your cat just clawed it's way across it while running from the dog. After much blood and some swear words it was decided that I did not need stitches (thankfully) and the worst injury I had was a... Continue Reading →

Strange Books

I've had this migraine since the morning I wrote my last entry, and it's beginning to piss me off (the migraine, not the last blog entry). It has slowed my writing down enough that I'm starting to question the sanity of writing 3 books at the same time. Fortunately, I'm not having any problems keeping... Continue Reading →
