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!
September Wrap-Up: Reach 20,000 words in book 3, STEEL BLOOD. Progress: Better than August! After a few rounds of scene edits with my criqiue partners in which some narrative vomit was thankfully cut, I ended up with approximately 9,000 words written for the month, and I’m hanging out at about 14,000 words right now. Goal: FinishContinue reading “September Wrap-Up & October Goals”
Things that NASA did not announce today: The discovery of sentient alien life. The development of a working faster-than-light engine. That we’ve been using a Stargate in Colorado Springs to explore the universe since the mid-1990s.
August Wrap-Up: Goal: Write 10,000 words of book 3, STEEL BLOOD. Progress: A little over 5,500 words. Part of that was because I didn’t even start writing until August 18, and the other part was crippling uncertainty as to the way I was starting the novel, which is one of the hardest parts of anyContinue reading “August Wrap-Up & September Goals”
I’m such a bum. Forgot to do a book review last Thursday and I’ve got no mental energy for a blog post today. The good news is that is because I’ve been living and breathing the start of book 3. The better news is this means you get a deleted scene from STEEL VICTORY! SpoilersContinue reading “Deleted Scene from STEEL VICTORY”
Today I had the chance to stop by and hang out with the lovely Divas of Desire! There you can find a review of STEEL VICTORY by one of the Divas, Rachell Nichole, author the excellent erotica novel TO SIR, along with a note from me. They invited me to write about why my vampireContinue reading “Guest post at Divas of Desire”
I have a bunch of smaller tidbits for you today, so I figured I’d just combine them into one post. Last Friday, the lovely Shara White was nice enough to give STEEL VICTORY a belated shout-out on her blog over at Calico Writes. She was a fellow student during my time in the Seton HillContinue reading “Monday bits and bobs”
I am incredibly honored by the number of people who have already supported my debut novel by purchasing a copy. But I am also aware and completely understand that many people these days prefer the ebook format, for everything from ease of reading, to space concerns, to the (usually) cheaper price. The wait is over:Continue reading “STEEL VICTORY now available on Kindle”
Are you tired of seeing pictures from my book launch yet? Of course you’re not. The Dog Star Books blog just put up a bunch here. You mean you haven’t visited the Dog Star Books blog yet? The science-fiction/adventure imprint of Raw Dog Screaming Press? That my wonky urban fantasy/alternate history sneaked its way into?Continue reading “Launch pictures at Dog Star Books blog”
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. I had a great time catching up with old friends, meeting new ones (both current students and new workshop attendees), and just generallyContinue reading “In Your Write Mind 2015 recap”
