THE CURIOSITY KILLERS Cover Reveal!

I had the honor of proofreading the science-fiction (time travel/steampunk/murder mystery) novel THE CURIOSITY KILLERS by fellow Dog Star Books author K.W. Taylor late last year. Hands down, it is one of the best novels I’ve read within the past few years, and I’m really excited for the rest of you to get to readContinue reading “THE CURIOSITY KILLERS Cover Reveal!”

This past weekend (October 23-25, 2015), I attended the fourth annual DogCon, the annual convention hosted by my publisher, Raw Dog Screaming Press. Its a wandering convention, and this year we took over Philadelphia, Pennsylvania!

KW Taylor: New Dog Star Books author!

Some facts you might not know about speculative fiction writer K.W. Taylor: Like me, she is from Dayton, Ohio. By law, all Dayton writers must go by their initials for publication. Her adorable tabby cat Dharma and my blue-point Siamese Alex are having a sordid long-distance romance. In our spare time, we front a postmodern industrial synth bandContinue reading “KW Taylor: New Dog Star Books author!”

Con Report: Confluence 2015

This weekend I attended Confluence, Pittsburgh’s science fiction/fantasy/horror literary convention, hosted by Parsec. I had a great time being on panels and meeting other writers and readers.

Disclaimer: Betts is a fellow Dog Star Books author and I consider him a friend. However, I purchased a copy of this novel for full price. Comparing INDELIBLE INK to Matt Betts’ first novel, the steampunk/zombie/giant monster/Weird West extravaganza ODD MEN OUT, does both books a disservice.  Instead, INDELIBLE INK is a creature all itsContinue reading “Review: INDELIBLE INK by Matt Betts”

Now that I’ve been home a week and have pretended to catch up on sleep, I figured I should recap my experiences at Seton Hill University’s In Your Write Mind for 2015.
