Hard to believe it’s been so long since I posted. The good news is I’ve busily had my nose to the grind working on Frozen Sky 3. Getting close! In other good news, super genius Jasper Schreurs has also been a busy bee. Here is a sneak peek at his upcoming artwork for FS3.

I *just* about finished up the REDEEMER synopsis last night. In fact, I called it done even though I knew there was more I could put in. I thought it was primarily emotional storyline stuff and probably wouldn’t make *that* much difference to the synopsis as a whole, but in a fit of Covering All...Read more of this blog post »
Being locked inside with nothing to do but write has always been my dream job. I love it. I love it even more when the words and stories are flying at me like they are right now. So who knew there would finally come a winter where I was sick of being trapped in my oh-my-god-so-desperate-I-cleaned...Read more of this blog post »

Novelties is fast becoming one of my favorite things we do. I love that we get to spread the word about cool new books, games, and geekery while raising money for charity at the same time.
What’s more, the longer we do this, the more folks come to us with new and interesting things for us to show...Read more of this blog post »

Something happened to me yesterday that hasn’t happened in a very long time.

My editor reminded me this week about the coffee shop rule. You can have a conversation in a coffee shop, but only one per book unless it’s a reoccurring, fully realized setting that is so developed it’s almost a character in itself. Yep, I got lazy.
So-o-o-o-o I took my licks with the wet noodle...Read more of this blog post »

Winning in politics is often bizarre, drawn out, incremental, and ultimately a surprise. As such, winning often doesn't feel that good. But I think it's very important to take a bit of time when it happens to enjoy it.
And also to recognize that the win would not have happened without the peopl...

Remember me? I know… it’s been deathly quiet around here lately. As I keep saying, there’s a lot happening behind the scenes that I can’t talk about yet (don’t you just hate it when people post that kind of empty, bullshit comment and leave you hanging?!).
