Readers (and book bloggers) are just the best

So, Alice in No-Man’s-Land has been out for a week or two now.  It hasn’t jumped to the top of the NYT Bestseller list of course, but it’s getting a very good response so far.  More or less everything has gone about as I expected so far – the ‘having to coordinate everything yourself’ part, …

FALLOUT has Launched!

FALLOUT, sequel to THE BURN ZONE, has officially launched!  I hope that you enjoy this installment of the Haan series, in which the status quo (such as it was) begins to get upended and the story grows in scope.  In THE BURN ZONE, Sam learned a lot about the Haan that she’d never suspected but …

This is How I Do It

work

A lot of writers talk about how they write, and today I’m going to do the same.  Note, this isn’t about style, or dialogue, or any technical aspect of writing, but rather how one goes about conceptualizing, starting, and finishing a full length novel which is a challenge unto itself even once you’ve got all …

Surrounded by Internet Lilies

Packed in like these guys

Writing The Burn Zone is turning out to be an interesting learning experience for me. In the revivors series the city it took place in felt overpopulated, and while The Burn Zone takes place in a different ‘world’ I’m expanding on that trend for this book largely because I think the world will actually be …

Pimping Ain’t Easy

...and yes, Tom.  Every time.

Seriously, it’s really hard.  When you work a full time job on top of writing, it’s hard to find the time and energy to pimp at peak efficiency, but if you want to ever get noticed by anyone ever, pimp you must. My most recent pimping attempt was to post sample chapters of my revivors …

The Burn Zone

I really enjoyed writing the Revivors series, but there is a special joy that comes with breaking ground on a completely new tale.  The Burn Zone is that tale. This afternoon I verified with my editor at Roc that The Burn Zone is a go.  The contract will (I believe) include one other book and …
