Crossed 120,000 words in the epic fantasy novel today. I'm hoping to wrap it up by next weekend while keeping it under 140,000 words, but I'm not getting my hopes up (about the completion date, not the word count). In the meantime, I have another cover reveal. About a year and a half ago I … Continue reading Cover Reveal and Quick Update
So I decided to try something different this time around with the release of Murder World: Kaiju Dawn. I'm going to run a contest. That's right, a contest. Running until Friday, June 6th at 10:00 PM EST, everybody who buys (or has already bought) a copy of Murder World: Kaiju Dawn and sends me a screen-shot of … Continue reading CONTEST!
Yesterday I had this wonderful 1800 word update ready to go up and I promptly deleted it all by pushing the wrong button. Since I don't type up blog posts first on a word document, then paste it here, everything was completely loss. Angered (at myself, because when I go dumbass, I don't do it by … Continue reading Lost Words
Similar in appearance to Kaiju Apocalypse (but a different universe and story altogether, I promise) here is the rough draft cover for Murder World: Kaiju Dawn. Co-authored with Eric S. Brown again (we make quite the team -- this is the third book we've collaborated on in the past 8 months), it should see a release over the next … Continue reading Cover Reveal! Murder World: Kaiju Dawn
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
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 All About

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 Kaiju Day 2
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 It’s Here!
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 Novella Sold
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
