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!
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
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.
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
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
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 Sold! And Please Tip Your Waiter
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 … Continue reading Coming Soon
I've been stupidly busy the past few weeks (to steal a line from my friend Gerry). This is going to be a long update, so you may want to grab something to drink, or let the dog out. First off, let me say that Mysticon 2014 was an absolute blast. It went off without a … Continue reading Stupid Busy
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 End of Year Time
So apparently trolls are all the rage these days. I had no idea. I love reading the blogs of authors I like to... uh, read? That sounded a lot better in my head. Anyway, so I was reading Larry Correia's blog around 5 this morning and saw that there was a troll in the dungeon. I read … Continue reading Troll Baiting
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 The Accidental Lecture
Another long work week ahead of me and I'm still trying to wrap up Wraithkin. It's as though my boss knows I'm almost finished with a book and has decided to make me work more than normal. Plus side, though, is that after my six days in a row I'm taking three off. Yesterday we put … Continue reading The Briefest July Update Possible
Wrapping up Wraithkin as we speak, which is why I haven't been around much (or doing reviews lately). It's almost ready for beta reader squad to tear it apart and point out the inconsistencies (I know they're there, I just can never find them) and horrid dialogue. I also need to make a few chapters darker than … Continue reading Fanboy
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 Trolling For Love
