Okay...okay...I've finally come up for some air. And HOLEEE CRAP is this place a mess. Dust. Enough post-its to encircle the earth, and a whiteboard that looks like somebody tossed a loaded scrabble board at a spider's web. Of course I'm only up for a moment (yes, I'm aware they have pills for that) and then … Continue reading Adventurous Readers Wanted
A time-honored classic. Like "Do you want me to turn this car around?" or "Wait until your father gets home!" One of those countless sayings you swore you'd never inflict on your own children, let alone your fans. Yep, this one's for you guys. All five of you in the cheap seats waiting to hear what … Continue reading I Am Not Your Entertainment Committee
I've been pushing Crimson Son for so long, I'm getting nervous about one thing in particular: confusing my fans. Not that my fans are easily confused. If they read my fiction, they either enjoy puzzles and deep plots with a heavy dose of character development or...well...maybe they just like being confused.

At one point, he was so into creating videos, I sprang for some mid-range … Continue reading BEHOLD! Michael Bay schooled by a 14 year old…
I realize it 's a slow week here at the blog but behind the scenes, I'm working at a frantic pace. With the new blog schedule, I'm supposed to get all geeky with geekery on Wednesdays, but this week I've got my nose to the verbal grindstone. Don't worry though - Free Fiction Friday will not be … Continue reading Labor Week
The kind folks over at The Author Visits have just posted a review of Crimson Son. Here's an excerpt: "This bright, quirky fantasy, gives "superhero" a whole new meaning. From the smart, snarky wise-cracking first person POV of Spencer, to his not so personally superhero Dad, this breezy, yet compelling YA book is both an entertaining … Continue reading The Author Visits gives Crimson Son 5 stars!
Look what I got! A box full o' kick ass! No time to celebrate. I'm headed to a local institution, Recycled Books, to try and sweet talk them into putting me on their "local author" shelf. Next, it's off to a couple comic book shops to do the same. My original plan didn't allow for this. … Continue reading Christmas in July
