OK, Maybe There’s Something to Kindle Select After All (Er, Try Two)

February 17, 2014

For nearly two years I have stuck to my guns and insisted I would make my books available via as many platforms as possible rather than let any one online source have total control. I am just naturally the sort of person who rejects monopolies and the notion of letting a company control my choices. […]

Every Day I’m Tumblin’

February 7, 2014

Actually, only sometimes. Possibly not even most. A little over a year ago I read a blog post (the link to which I’ll never find) by another writer who suggested starting Tumblr blogs for main characters. They suggested it could be a way for readers to interact with the story and the characters via some […]

Deal with the Devil – Out Now!

January 4, 2014

Check it out: Deal with the Devil is out now for Kindle! That last bit is important, though: it’s out for Kindle only. That’s a temporary measure, but it’s one I felt I had to take to really test the Kindle Direct Publishing platform. On the advice of a friend who runs a micropress, I’m trying out […]

More Interviews & Dragon Con Thoughts

This weekend I recorded an hour-long interview with Stark Raven Mad Radio, a podcast about indie authors and their books. The conversation was very fun and free-roaming and I felt like it went very, very well. I’ll be posting a minicast teaser in the next few days in four places: here, Twitter, Facebook and Google+.

I am extremely pleased to say that I will soon be breaking into the realm of actual, physical bookstores! Atomic Empire will be carrying a few copies of Perishables and Tooth & Nail in their local authors section as soon as I get over there to supply them with copies. Atomic Empire (and before, when […]

(I edited the buyer out of this photograph – which is of me signing my first ever autograph! – because I forgot to ask her permission to use the picture on this blog. If you happen to be this person and you don’t mind, let me know!) I survived my first experience as a convention guest […]

This weekend I’m a writer guest at ConCarolinas in Charlotte, NC. I’ll be appearing on a bunch of panels and staffing a table in Writers Alley between the panels. I’ll also probably be at the dance party on Saturday night because, hello, dance party. Below is my schedule of panels for the weekend. They’re listed […]

On Being Remembered After Networking

May 19, 2013

In two weeks I’ll be attending ConCarolinas 2013 as a writer guest and panelist. It’s my first convention and I’ve been pondering how to make myself memorable to attendees and other guests. There are dozens of writers there for the weekend and I want – no, I need - to figure out some way to make my […]

Just Like That

With the push of a button, Tooth & Nail is officially published. There’s a lot of “you should have a launch event” out there online but I don’t even get how one has a launch event for an ebook. I’m sure one of the local businesses where I’m a regular would be willing to host […]
