Some Demented Guy Keeps Posting My Life Story

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

Crimson Son Sale and a 15 Book Digital Grav Boot Stuffer!

Earlier this month I got the exciting news that Crimson Son had been selected for a BookBub feature. Most of you have probably heard of them - they have millions of subscribers - but for those not in the know, they are the premier place for book addicts to shop for deals. They only accept … Continue reading Crimson Son Sale and a 15 Book Digital Grav Boot Stuffer!

When Moving, eBooks are the BEST Books…

If you're like me, you always need more books. In fact, I'm working on two more right now: Crimson Son 2 and Wake of Alshasra'a, the third book in the Stormblade Saga. And if you're like me (and the rest of the world), life often decides to toss in a surprise or two. We always had … Continue reading When Moving, eBooks are the BEST Books…

Dare to be Unmarketable

While trying to put together the new short story collection, juggling the article gig at GeekDad, reading through the first round of critique reviews for First Song, and doing my best to keep Crimson Son in the public eye, I've run across a few things on the web which I intended to blab about here … Continue reading Dare to be Unmarketable

Russ Vlogs: Kindle Life Hacks

Well, I kept threatening to do this and here it is. A vlog post. Thanks also to everyone that stopped by to check out my response to the elementary school battling the servants of Sauron. So far, no word from the school and I've been keeping an eye on the news to hear about the … Continue reading Russ Vlogs: Kindle Life Hacks

Oooh! Shiny! Synchronizers!

I'm continuing along my brave quest into recently discovered indie frontiers. I'm shamelessly following a path blazed by the Immerse or Die report over at Creativity Hacker. That path is littered with the husks of cast off self-pub works which strike the ground every eight minutes or so. Of about 150 books, only 17 have survived … Continue reading Oooh! Shiny! Synchronizers!

Keeping My Towel for the Blood, Sweat and Tears

Normally people use New Year's blog posts to talk about the past. Top ten lists take over the web (more than normal). The best and worst of a year gone by. I'm going to touch on that, but only to lead into where things are going. 2014 was a mixed bag but I'm mostly excited … Continue reading Keeping My Towel for the Blood, Sweat and Tears
