NaNoSubMo

I’m not participating in NaNoWriMo this year. It’s not because I don’t believe in the process of encouraging writers. It’s because I have different plans this year! I’ve decided to submit Warmaiden to one agent or editor each day in the month of November. I’m calling this National Novel Submission Month. Or… wait for it… ...

Author Fest Recap

I had a great time at Author Fest of the Rockies this past weekend. I attended the conference in the role of moderator and general helper around the place, and had the great joy of attending quite a few great sessions in which I learned quite a bit. The first session of the conference was ...

Carnival of the Damned

Hey everyone, I wanted to let you know that my story, “The Carnival’s Children” was just accepted into Evil Jester Press‘s anthology entitled, “Carnival of the Damned.” It is being edited by Henry Snider and David C.

I Hate Getting Out Of My Car

For those of you that don’t know, I’ve have a long drive (about 90 minutes with good traffic) to get from the garage in my house to the parking garage near work.

Writing from the Peak :: My Presentation on Computer Security

My friend DeAnna was at my Practical Computer Security for Writers workshop, and she has written up a great set of articles about the presentation.

Pikes Peak Writers Conference: 2012

This is a horribly late update on my experience at PPWC 2012. I’m finally caught up on most of my projects that arrived during and post conference, so now I can drop some notes on what I thought of the various sessions I attended. Thursday I paid for the “add on Thursday” this year because ...

Who’s That Handsome Fella?

Who's That Handsome Fella?
Who’s the handsome fella? No. Not the one on the left. That’s me. I’m far from handsome. I’m talking about the guy on the right. Well, it’s Donald Maass. If you’re not sure who he is, then do some Googling. You’ll probably find out that he’s one of the premier literary agents in New York ...

Sitting with Donald Maass

I held the second highest bid for a seat with Donald Maass at the Thursday night dinner at the 2012 Pikes Peak Writers Conference! This means I’ll be sitting on the right-hand side of one of the greatest agents in the game today. I can’t wait to meet the man during dinner. I’ll also be ...
