Good Versus Evil


One of the really cool things about being a reader as well as a writer is to go back and read those who inspired you when you were younger. To be whisked away to faraway and magical lands of adventure. Of dragons and knights, of the entire escapism which, to me, is what epic fantasy... Continue Reading →

The Unlucky Few


I've been backing away from social media this past week in order to focus on the Epic Fantasy novel and I actually became far more productive. Weird, that. It's almost as if social media is nothing but a time sink. Weird, right? I hit the usual halfway point in regards to word count but I... Continue Reading →

Home Stretch


I've been quiet this week (I actually posted twice this week already, but those were scheduled in advance) because I am currently on the home stretch of my next Four Horsemen novel, DAUGHTERS OF THE PRIDE. I can see the ending, and the middle is coming along nicely. There's a few parts I want to... Continue Reading →

Award Season Is At Hand


Man, has my email really blown up the past 48 hours with people asking me to conisder them in my nominations process. I read them all, mind you. It's interesting to see some of the people asking me to nominate their book. Some I haven't read, some aren't even out yet (how???), and some I... Continue Reading →

Maintain the Flow


Sometimes the words flow and life is good. Other times, well, it's like a tooth extraction gone horribly wrong. This past week has been an interesting mesh of being both unable to write and yet still averaging almost 2,000 words per day. I've been focusing mostly on DAUGHTERS OF THE PRIDE, though I did work...

Book Cover Reveal


I've been having a lot of these this year, courtesy of producing a LOT of written material. GUNBOAT DIPLOMACY will be out on Jan 3, 2020. Co-authored with the always entertaining Jamie Ibson, here is the cover as well as the entire cover art wrap (for the print editions). The pirate kitty skull in the... Continue Reading →

That's right, Jamie and I have the first book coming out in 2020. We're extremely excited about the potential of GUNBOAT DIPLOMACY and what it means to the... Continue Reading →

A Snippet from “Forged in Blood”


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 →

The Dragon Awards


The inaugural Dragon Awards (hosted by Dragoncon, the biggest party for nerds in the entire southeastern U.S.) went off smashingly. I can't wait for them to release the results numbers so we can see just how many people actually voted. I'm going to throw out a number and say... hmm... 10,000. While that may seem...

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 →

Just Your Average Everyday Friday


My post over at the Mad Genius Club is now live. I went to an interesting place during my thought process and delved into sociological change throughout history. I probably could have written about 4,000 more words on the topic but I have a book due. I finished Best Laid Plans last night and managed to get... Continue Reading →

Cover Reveal!


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 →

Please


My brain couldn't get into the mood for writing Kaiju Apocalypse III today, since this flu thingy has been kicking my butt this week. Instead of calling it a lost day, though, I decided to work on this fantasy idea my Muse has been beating me over the head with the past two weeks. I mean, I'd... Continue Reading →

It’s Here!


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 →
