Just a quick FYI, when Things to Do in Denver was posted for pre-order by Siren this past week, their system didn’t generate an alert e-mail like it usually does. I contacted them and they’re in the process of a site overhaul, and that’s one of the features currently being redesigned.

One thing about bad movies is that generally they have their own system of logic that doesn't really follow real life.  They're like dreams that way.  Bad dreams.  I mean, where else would the girl run UPstairs to escape the maniac with the knife?  Or decide that a creepy old house/cabin/motel is...

Dear billcipherbruh,

Honestly, I am very excited about it too. It’s decidedly not another book in the Raven Cycle — it’s very different tonally and thematically and in its plot interests — but it’s been very rewarding to be back in the heads of Ronan, Adam, and a bunch of new characters I’m excite...

The new Novella I am writing is currently pending. It has been kind of a rough month for me, so I hope this does well.

It is somewhat of a basic story, but I think it will be fun with nice character designs.

I'll post another update when it's up proper.

It’s face-meltingly hot in the summer. Saying 29C at 8:40PM doesn’t do justice to the humidity and the smell of overripe city. Yesterday was a misery of work, dentist, dehydration, migraine, and heat. It took most of today to recover. As a result, the best I could do for dinner was a spicy chicke...
