Air Time on Dungeon Crawlers Radio

Part of this business really is “who you know.” I can attribute many of my opportunties and successes to having met “the next new person in my working life” at a panel or booth or signing. In this case, my buddy “Diamond” DJ Butler had introduced me to a gentleman by the name of Daniel … Read more…

Revelation: Axanar

There’s a new sheriff in town, and its name is Axanar. Okay, okay, so that’s a mixed metaphor. Simile? Analogy? Whatever.  What’s important is that Trekkies have something new to love about Star Trek again. It’s been a while, and I’m pretty sure most of us have the DTs. I grew up with Star Trek. … Read more…

Tokyo Yakuza on the Rise – A Freelance Success

I’m doing everything I can these days to become a fulltime freelancer. With bills being what they are and my old “perfect day gig” having mostly dried up, I need a new revenue stream.

Bollocks. Let … Read more…

A QJA Guest Blog at DelSheree’s Place

Ahh… the life of a writer. I get to meet tons and tons of fantastic writers… all the time… everywhere. One of my recent “meets” was DelSheree Gladden who runs a great author blog over on BlogSpot. She was kind enough to lend me a little bit of her real estate where I could tell … Read more…

Brain Games for the Un-clinically Un-sane

Some time ago, a fellow found me somewhat by accident on Facebook. I suspect he was doing what many writers do these days, namely seeking writing contacts and fellow lunatics gifted and cursed by the compulsion to write. He was (and is) a fellow writer who looks at the writing business both pragmatically and with … Read more…

TCP Roundtable: Indie Authors and Publishing

It’s no secret that indie publishing has turned the traditional publishing world upside down. The beauty is that it’s not a war going on so much as an adjustment… and evolution that is altering the nature of what writing is reaching consumers. The discussion below was hosted by A.T. Russell of Twisted Core Press, who … Read more…
