This whole "staying off social media" thing is working out pretty nicely, for the most part. My productivity has skyrocketed over the past month, with January coming in at a cool 63,000 words written for the month alone. February is already on pace to surpass that mark, even with three fewer days. Granted, I'm not … Continue reading Layers In A Novel
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
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
So when Corruptor went live last Friday, I neglected to mention that there is new content within as well as a new ending. The print book also went from 300 pages to 450. Yeah, that's a bit of a jump. Best of all, the novel (and series) was reclassified as YA, which is what it had been … Continue reading Quick Update
So I'm in another Baen Books anthology, this one titled Forged in Blood which is edited by Michael Z. Williamson and is based in his "Freehold" universe. Here is a quick description from the book: NEW STORIES OF A MYSTICAL KILLING SWORD SET IN MICHAEL Z. WILLIAMSON’S FREEHOLD SERIES WARRIORS AND SOLDIERS TIED TOGETHER THROUGHOUT TIME AND SPACE. From … Continue reading A Snippet from “Forged in Blood”
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.
Isn't it pretty? It's so pretty! For this cover I managed to land the freakishly talented J. F. Posthumus to do the cover of the upcoming historical zombie story, The Dead of Babylon. It will be released on December 18th, just in time to satisfy your holiday horrorific cravings (even though it's set about 3000 years ago … Continue reading Cover Reveal!
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
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 No Time
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
(I was tagged in this by Amanda S. Green. She introduced her favorite character, Ashlyn Shaw, star of Vengeance From Ashes, here.) As I walked into the bar, I began to wonder just what the hell I was getting myself into this time. Sure, I'm the author, and I create these people, but some of them … Continue reading Meet the Character — Vincente Huerta

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
...for Murder World: Kaiju Dawn keep pouring in. I would happily recommend Murder World to anyone looking for a quick, pulpy read that is both action-packed and witty. I certainly had a lot of fun with it! Yeah, good reviews. Let them spring forth!
