Book Biz Rules and Riddles #001

It occurred to me that I have at least some information that would be useful to both new and burgeoning authors alike when it comes to getting published. I’m not authority, by any means. As of this date, I still don’t have a major book deal. However, I’ve chewed a fair amount of dirt in … Read more…

The Perils of Multitasking and Time Delays

So, I have to pony up a faux pas I made in my last post. Remember when I said that R.C. was the only one who picked up on the fact that I had a character sitting in a frozen cave buck naked during a thirty minute conversation? Yeah, well that wasn’t entirely accurate. My … Read more…

In the Aftermath of Multi-Culturalism in Steampunk

This weekend I attended COSine 2017, a very small convention held by and for writers in the Colorado Springs and surrounding areas. It is a volunteer-staffed enterprise where even the panelists pay to participate. I mention this because I go to conventions across the country—twenty cons in 2016 and seventeen cons in 2015.

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. Working with Kathryn S. Renta of LatchKeyArtist.com, we’ve been doing banner work for TOR and Kevin J. Anderson, as well as … Read more…

Wattpad, SIGI, and Writing Techniques New and Old

I posted a new section for the on-going SIGI story I’m using as a test-bed on the Wattpad platform. SIGI is a very serialized sort of tale featuring a new-born, sentient robotic insect destined to become a superspy and, eventually, to save the world.
