Almost two years ago, I told you about Trapslyvania, a project to be published by Goodman Games. The book was delayed for many valid reasons but is now in the final layout stage. I was excited to receive the pages of my submission in all their final “typeset” glory in my email yesterday. This was timely, because I was struggling for a February topic to post here.
My contribution for the book was written in the fall of 2015, so reading it again was like remembering a weird dream. It was so fu...

I’ll be the first to admit that 2017 was not a terribly productive year when it came to writing. While progress was made, it was far less than I had hoped. As is true in many aspects of life, the efforts which get the most enthusiastic response are the ones we focus on. It’s in my nature to address the things for which people are cheering me on, and I didn’t hear much from readers this year. So, I focused on other projects.
But with that in mind, I would like to do my own cheering for severa...

Merry Christmas to all my Twitch viewers, book readers, and audiobook listeners! I hope you are having a wonderful holiday. Gifts are not a big part of my holiday experience, but here’s wishing that you received many treasures this month.
Year’s end is a time for reflection. I was unable to meet all my creative goals in 2017, but that’s okay. This past year felt like I was moving my pieces around a war game board to set up for a future attack. The time I did have free was dedicated mainly to...

I’m barely getting my monthly post up for November. It has been an insanely busy month with personal and creative things vying for my time. December and January promise more of the same. However, I do have a brand new sneak peek at City of the Gods: Ambassador for you. I deleted anything that could be a spoiler, so look on with no worries!
Any guesses on whom Shiva and Tara are looking for?

[image error]A writer is a little like a wolf. Sometimes she’s “lone,” writing solo works. Other times she’s part of a pack, working on an anthology.
Not hard to guess what I’m promoting this month, is it? The werewolf short story anthology by Dreampunk Press now has an official title: Go Ahead and Howl. This project raises funds for Marscon 2018’s official charity, the Heritage Humane Society.
I previously shared a sneak peek to my Utopea tie-in story “Growlabouts.” I have since penned a second independ...

My August update has been delayed. I’ve been waiting to officially announce a new City of the Gods Universe release. However, if I stall much longer, it will be September. So for this month’s article, I’m looking back at what’s already available. One of the things our team is very proud of is the depth of our product line, which crosses genres and offers something to almost every kind of fan.
City of the Gods stories appear as:Novels Short Story Anthologies Comics “Making of” Books Audiobo...

Squeaky readers get the sneaks! I’ve been hearing from a good number of you that you’re more than ready to discover what happens to Gaius, Argus, and their companions. At the end of Mother of Ghosts, we left them under threat of deadly violence at the reclaimed temple of a horrific goddess. Over the last few weeks, I’ve finished plotting out the next volume in the series, entitled A Fall of Green Peaches. Without giving too much away, I can tell you some of the overall themes in book two and...

What do I love more than writing about fictional places? Creating maps and background resource material for them to be used in role playing games! Today is “Free RPG Day” at many gaming stores. I’m late to the party, but you won’t find any Utopea materials in stores at this time anyway. To get your hands on those, you need to subscribe to my newsletter.
I’m happy to give you a sneak peek at a piece of the Utopea role playing supplement that will be available in the future. I have been working...

Although 2017 is the year that I personally decided to take a break from attending conventions, that doesn’t mean you can’t get an in-person look at the latest novel in the City of the Gods Universe. Our beloved interior and cover designer Steve Crompton will be bringing a very special sneak preview to Phoenix ComicCon May 25 – 28th.
This 32-page chapbook contains several chapters from the third and final novel, Ambassador. You’ll catch up with our heroes, get a peek at the villains’ new pla...
