Deal with the Devil – Out Now!

January 4, 2014

0

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 […]

Brick & Mortar & Me & You & Short Stories & Maybe Legal Advice

June 27, 2013

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 […]

ConCarolinas Wrap-Up

(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 […]

Exclusivity vs. Openness

March 15, 2013

With the approaching completion of Tooth & Nail, I face a philosophical quandary: do I drink the Kindle Kool-Aid or do I stick to my idealistic principles? Oh, wait, one thing: here’s the video of my talk to opensource.com’s #cc10 event in December! OK, back to my quandary. If you’re not familiar with the behind-the-scenes […]

Tumblr, Editing & Website Revamps.

February 9, 2013

Revamps. Get it? Ha! I kill me! I read a fantastic idea for free marketing: give one’s characters their own Tumblrs. Roderick – Withrow’s psychopath cousin – would absolutely have a Tumblr of bizarro stuff and Withrow would love Tumblr’s endless stream of classic cars and movie posters. They would of course follow one another. […]

Stealth Launch: For Science!

I’ve published a new short story called “Complications”. It was inspired by Machine of Death and I obtained the explicit permission of the editors of that fine volume before making it available. It’s free on Smashwords or 99c on Kindle. Its publication is a quiet experiment and I’m letting you in on the secret as a way to […]

Starting 2013 at a Sprint

January 1, 2013

December was occupied almost entirely with an extensive rewrite of Tooth & Nail, the sequel to Perishables. I had to make any of a number of changes and expansions and those bumped it up from being ~55,000 words to over 80,000! Yowza! That’s, like, real-novel-length there! (Also, check out the shiny new sharing buttons down […]
