Overdue WorldCon Report and Publishing Announcement

Overdue WorldCon Report and Publishing Announcement
So…. WorldCon was over three weeks ago, and I’m just now getting around to this. Most things are a hazy memory at this point, so this’ll probably be the world’s shortest WorldCon wrap-up report. The drive from Colorado to Kansas City was long and interesting. We got a little lost at one point (there is a Hays, ...

Novel Publication Contract for Warmaiden

Novel Publication Contract for Warmaiden
Wow. Where to start? Not from the beginning. That takes too long. This weekend was the 24th Pikes Peak Writers Conference. It went fantastic! I met loads of cool people. I made oodles of new friends.

What Have I Done?

What Have I Done?
I’ve had a Patreon account for a while. I’ve been backing a handful of worthy folks and efforts for several months. It’s been very rewarding to know that I’m supporting my fellow artists in chasing the dream. As many of you know, I’ve been hard at work on writing a short story a week for 2016. ...

Obligatory 2014 Recap

Obligatory 2014 Recap
Wow. What a year. Ups. Downs. Even some sideways curves thrown in. I’m not going to go through every, gritty little detail and bore you to death. Here are some highlights of the year for me! The year started out with a bang as the government decided it wanted back taxes on my grandfather’s estate. I ...

One-Thousand, Eight Degrees

One-Thousand, Eight Degrees
I’ve told the story of the night my arm was nearly amputated in a car wreck on a horrific autumn night in 1988 many times. I was encouraged by a few people to write the story down for others to learn from. About the same time I received this encouragement, there was an open call ...

An Uncommon Collection: Update

The CSFWG anthology, An Uncommon Collection, is nearing completion! I received the physical proof from CreateSpace last night. I immediately opened the package and tore through the book. I looked for missing headers, additional headers that didn’t need to be there, font issues, cover askew, etc.. I didn’t see a single thing wrong! Yay! I’m ...
