Another Step Forward in the Master Plan

I got my hard-copies from WordFire Press today.  Both The Pandora Sequence and Five by Five arrived today.  For those of you who didn’t know, I’ve been doing some production work for WordFire, including eBook conversions and interior book design / layouts.  Thus far I’ve worked on titles written or including work by Kevin Anderson, Rebecca … Read more…

How “Cornelius” Came to Be

A big piece of the writing biz is networking, which is ironic since most writers tend to be introverts stuck  indoors and chained to their desks.  But the truth is that you just never know where your next opportunity might come from. So, one morning I’m at my day job when a FB message pops up.  It’s … Read more…

The Golden Unrule

I’m in a writer’s group run by a friend of mine.  It’s called “Paths to Publication” and it’s more about pursuing a writing career than it is about performing the act of writing.  We talk about projects and successes and failures.  We discuss how were pursuing our writing goals and what our long-term plans are.  I … Read more…

To Sex or Not to Sex

How Two Snakes Made a Hobbit

I … Read more…

The Next Big Thing

Betsy Dornbusch got me involved in this little escapade called “The Next Big Thing.”  Being the non-conformist that I am (have you seen my hair?), I decided to do “The Next Big Things” because I’m about to finish up one project and start another. What is the working title of your next book? Jake Lasater and … Read more…

A Foundation for Roswell

I’ve  been contemplating the nature of the culture and government of my 1871 Roswell society.  I’m at that point in the new book where I have to define it and lay the groundwork for future memory.  As I contemplated this on the drive in to my day job this morning, something occurred to me. Government … Read more…

Inspiriation: 50% Weirdness, 50% External Input, 50% Science, and 7% Cigars & Scotch

So, I sat down at my day-gig and ran a quick run-through of FB headlines. You never know what you might trawl up from there, and I got lucky over the past two days. And NO, I’m not talking about some hottie from Zodicus Zu’ul… (although some of what that guy posts is positively UberHotness.) … Read more…
