A CORNUCOPIA of Sci Fi, Including a Little Ender’s Game….

I’ve been involved with an organization for about four years now that is, in many respects, turning the publishing industry on its ear… or at least reinventing an old game with a few new twists and a lot more panache… or is it chutzpah? Anyway, the organization is WordFire Press, and I can say with a … Read more…

Second in Sales – Advice for Writers

TIPS FOR UP-AND-COMING WRITERS: I found out today that I was second in sales for the month of November over at 7DS Books. They’re the ones who carry my short story collection Out Through the Attic. I’m not mentioning this to brag… well, I am… at least a little, but it’s not the most important … Read more…

2015 Thanks for the Ride…

Well, the Crockpot Ravioli Lasagna is cooking, so I figured I’d chime in on today. Y’all know I give thanks pretty regularly. I’m grateful for every day I wake up, just like my granddaddy taught me.

BLOOD TIES GOES LIVE

Today is the day… well, technically, tomorrow is the day, but the gods of database validation smiled upon me. The official date was 11/1/2015. However (and I’m really grateful for this), the actual date turned out to be Halloween of 2015. I consider that an auspicious occasion. So, I have a favor to ask. I’m … Read more…

1 Day Until Blood Ties!

One more day until Blood Ties officially comes out. I should have put that officially in quotes. I suppose I should have done it again… but now I’m just messing with you.
