Monthly Micro-Fiction Mailing List

It turns out I’m lousy at maintaining a blog. In part that’s because, as a writer, I have very limited time to devote to marketing and advertising and that kind of thing. But now I have this idea for a way to do that and write new stuff for you to enjoy: a micro-fiction mailing list! To … Continue reading »

Money Talks – or Does It?

A long time ago I tried my hand at paid promotions on Facebook and got nowhere. Throwing $5 at it produced virtually zero results. The system was very different then, however, and after all the jazz about Russian meddling in the election for very small amounts of money on a per-meddle basis, I figured I’d … Continue reading »

Withrow #5 Update & Preorder Links!

OK, so I promised an update on the fifth and final Withrow Chronicles novel, NOBODY GETS OUT ALIVE, on Monday. But my day job has been kicking my tail up and down the street and the world is insane so it’s kind of hard to get everything done some days.   ANYWAY, here’s the current … Continue reading »

Kindle Pre-Orders Are Live!

Falstaff Books have put the first four volumes of The Withrow Chronicles up on Amazon for digital pre-order. These are, Amazon-wise, completely different books from the versions I published myself, meaning if you already have the books they will not automatically update to these editions. PERISHABLES is up for a pre-order price of 99 cents. It’s … Continue reading »

Follow-Up to Last Post: Promoted Advertisements

A little over a year ago I said I was going to try paying small amounts of money for promoted posts and positioning on Facebook and Amazon, and see what happened. The theory behind them is that your content or your books will show up in front of people who otherwise wouldn’t see it but … Continue reading »

Back in the Saddle: Advertising, Brands, & Bookselling

Back in the Saddle Wow, it’s kind of been a while since I really did the whole blogging thing, hasn’t it? It’s kind of been a stressful year. A lot of work stress is gone now, happily. I was on a major project that wrapped up a few weeks ago, giving me just enough time … Continue reading »

Cover Reveal: ATTEMPTED IMMORTALITY (Withrow Chronicles #4)

After soliciting feedback from followers of a couple of social media accounts, I’ve picked from the various covers I created for ATTEMPTED IMMORTALITY, the fourth novel in The Withrow Chronicles. Here it is!

WIP: Voistvanost – Atypical Vignette Fiction in a Fantasy World

This summer I’m working on fiction pieces large and small for a tabletop RPG setting. The piece below is one of the vignettes I’ve written to give a glimpse into one of the setting’s environments. By way of explanation, this is a setting for Pathfinder, a game that includes Gunslinger as a character class. Gunslingers … Continue reading »

“Do You Know Who This Person Is?” – I Don’t Do Boxes #3

I am incredibly honored to be included in issue 3 of I Don’t Do Boxes, a zine of queer stories from the South, produced by QueerLab and Elsewhere Museum. The theme of this issue was “Act Out.” The essay below is entirely true and autobiographical. The story of how and why I was pseudonymously interviewed as … Continue reading »

WIP: A Fall in Autumn

Someone suggested I start posting excerpts from what I’m writing at the moment, so I’m throwing this out there. Does it sound to you like a good idea that I post what I just wrote – literally the last few paragraphs of the draft I’m currently drafting – every month or every two weeks or so? Please … Continue reading »
