Hey. Spencer here. I've been online ever since I could remember. Hell, Mom posted sonogram photos on Facebook before Dad made her take them down. Down from her fake account about our fake life. Like he was worried somebody would notice a resemblance between fetus me and his masked, muscled self. Then I was born. … Continue reading Some Demented Guy Keeps Posting My Life Story

Want to talk fantasy with me? This weekend myself and twenty other fantasy authors will be taking over Kevin Potter's Facebook Page. We've formed a fellowship of sorts.

Turns out, if you want to do more than break even on a miner, you have to purchase an expensive little toaster cooled … Continue reading Digging Deep
SURPRISE! I might have mentioned this, not sure. The last two months have been a whirlwind hurricane. Pilgrim got released, the IoD bundle hit, then came All These Shiny Worlds. And currently I'm working on Forge of the Jadugar and Crimson Son 2 (double surprise!) along with another anthology invite. Phew. Oh, and that audiobook. I've been … Continue reading Crimson Son Audiobook Nears Completion
