Recommendations for Running Professional Conferences

2018-04-02T14:24:00-06:00April 2nd, 2018|Conferences|

This blog post is coming out of several requests from several different angles on how to run a professional conference. Instead of delivering a custom response to each person (which would take a considerable amount of time), I've made things pretty generic here, and I hope each person out there [...]

Modern Mythology Monday: Springwort

2018-03-11T16:05:35-06:00March 12th, 2018|Modern Mythology|

Welcome to my Modern Mythology series of blog posts. If you're not already aware, I'm a huge mythology nerd. I love the stories, creatures, deities, places, events, and general weirdness (at least, by modern perceptions), of these ancient tales. I actually love mythology and folklore so much, that it's a [...]

You Can Now Buy Signed Copies From Me

2017-12-02T10:27:39-06:00December 2nd, 2017|Book Signings, Modern Mythology|

While I was in Texas, my box of 20 copies of Griffin's Feather arrived. I plan on using these copies for some smaller book signings, but my highest priority purpose for these copies is to set up an online shopping cart where distant friends and family can purchase a copy [...]

I'm a bit late in getting this up, but if you want to see me this upcoming weekend at MileHiCon, swing by the Hyatt Regency Hotel in the Denver Tech Center. I figure I'll be getting there right around noon-ish, and I'll be around the hotel until mid-afternoon(-ish) on Sunday. [...]

Griffin’s Feather Update

2017-08-18T12:42:06-06:00August 18th, 2017|Modern Mythology, Novels, Publications, WordFire Press, WorldCon|

My debut novel, Griffin's Feather, is now in production with WordFire Press. The cover art is done. The cover layout is in process. The interior layout is in process. These are all great things. I know I'm sounding a bit analytical about it all, but that's because it's all so surreal [...]

Self-Imposed Stress

2017-04-16T13:01:30-06:00April 16th, 2017|Aell & Stiles, Conferences, Pikes Peak Writers|

An interesting thing about stress, especially self-imposed stress. I desperately wanted to get a new novel finished by Pikes Peak Writers Conference, so I'd have something fresh to pitch to the various agents/editors in attendance. To pull this off, I'd have to write about 1200 words a day, every day [...]

February Word Challenge: Post Mortem

2017-03-01T23:15:52-06:00March 1st, 2017|February Word Challenge|

Welp. February is officially over. I managed to do 8 days out of the 28 in the month. Not a great success rate, to be honest. The month basically conspired to be one of the busiest I've had in a long, long time. Work was overwhelming. Writing (not here) ramped up quite [...]
