Finished Murder World today. Clocking in at around 52,500 words, it's quite frankly one hellishly fun and exciting book. I love each and every one of the characters, and whenever I killed one, I almost felt bad for them (almost... I've been watching a lot of Game of Thrones lately). Right now the Super Awesome Beta Reader Team is... Continue Reading →
First off, I wanted to thank everyone who bought a copy of Kaiju Apocalypse this weekend. Cracking the Top 100 in multiple genres was... well, it blew my mind. The sales are still going (#18,000 or so last I checked... if you bought it, by the way, have you reviewed it yet? That helps even more!), and... Continue Reading →
I'll be out all day, but I woke up to something wonderful this morning. Amazon Best Sellers Rank: #7,009 Paid in Kindle Store (See Top 100 Paid in Kindle Store) #59 in Books > Science Fiction & Fantasy > Science Fiction > Military #73 in Books > Science Fiction & Fantasy > Science Fiction > Post-Apocalyptic #82 in Kindle Store > Kindle eBooks > Science Fiction & Fantasy > Science Fiction > Military Yeah, totally made my day/year. If I ever have... Continue Reading →
So one of my friends posted the following on Facebook: Hey folks, does your life not have enough excitement? wah wah music plays> Do you long for the days of being able to pick up a book and lose yourself in the heroic struggles of man against 300 ft. tall alien/dragon/dinosaur things? Was 'Pacific Rim'... Continue Reading →
Big news today! Kaiju Apocalypse is out and available via ebook over on Amazon. Best part about this? Amazon Prime members get it for free! Yeah, thought that would get your attention. So go forth, buy it, pay for my kitties' kibble (and Sophie's treats). If you don't, you probably don't love kitties and puppies and, more... 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...

By far a favorite cover of mine. Kaiju Apocalypse, coauthored with the amazing Eric S. Brown. Coming soon from Severed Press.
Kaiju Apocalypse, a novella I wrote with Eric S. Brown, was sold this morning to Severed Press. I'm very happy at this, since it's been about a month since I sold anything and I was beginning to get antsy once more. Now I'm working on two things -- Prince of the Rotted, my Babylonian zombie story, and Murder... Continue Reading →
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 →
Hero's Best Friend was released today and is available on both Kindle and Nook. You want to support your local author, then buy this book. Kindle link Nook link Also, if you purchase it, take a few moments to fill out a review on B&N and/or Amazon. It really helps out.
So I didn't watch the Super Bowl last night. Not out of some high and mighty stance or anything. I didn't feel like getting out of the house to watch it. I don't have a TV, and I hate live streaming anything over the internet. My poor bandwidth, man! Plus I really don't care about... Continue Reading →
And, at long last, I can show off the cover for Hero's Best Friend, which contains my story Hill 142, the untold (and completely alternate) version of the Battle of Belleau Wood during World War One. Edit: Oh, I probably should mention that this is coming out in the next few weeks from Seventh Star Press. Here's... Continue Reading →
I was thinking of writing an article today on race and science fiction, but... meh. No matter which "way" I transcribe it, someone's going to get butthurt over it. Not "mildly disagreeing" with me, and not a "I think you're wrong and this is why" conversation, but generally butthurt. Why? Because people are combative and... Continue Reading →
...and after seeing the new cover for Sha'Daa: Tales of the Apocalypse last night, I received an email this morning from another publisher about the cover for Hero's Best Friend, where my story Hill 142 resides and is awaiting print. The cover is in, and I must say that it looks gorgeous. There's going to be a... 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 →
