Los Rayos-X!

I am one handsome bastard

WARNING: Post contains graphic X-Ray images almost too horrible to imagine! I am apparently getting to that age where little things begin to ‘go wrong’.  A meddlesome pain in my left ear is not, I have finally decided, being caused by nefarious ear imps harvesting wax with which to fuel their tiny machines of war…but …

Ex-Con (Norwescon Impressions Part II)

norwescon baby!

Another really neat thing about Norwescon was all the delicious swag on display.  There was a big vendor area, kind of like a bazaar, where loads of people had set up shop selling everything from books to battle-axes (I’m serious, if I thought I could have gotten it on the airplane I could have bought …

Ex-Con (Norwescon Impressions Part I)

At least one Slave Leia is mandatory

I still need to get the pictures together, but I’m settled back in with my first ‘con under my belt.  How did it go?  I’ll give you a quick breakdown. It was fun, I’ll say that up front.  My wife and I had a good time in spite of being fish out of water to …

Come Fly With Me…

fly on

Ok, tomorrow my wife and I hop a flight from Boston to Seattle for Norwescon. I’m looking forward to the event itself, but I’ll be honest:  I hate to fly.  I think I might hate everything about it.  I don’t like airports, I don’t like pat-downs (okay, sometimes I do), I don’t like being in …

A while back I decided to sponsor a child through Childfund International.  I don’t announce that here to get a gold star or a pat on the back because I’m not being modest when I say I don’t deserve either of those things for doing it.  Since I can comfortably afford it, I feel like …

State of Decay Makes Short List for Philip K. Dick Award

I was very pleasantly surprised this morning to learn that my debut novel State of Decay has made the short list for the Philip K Dick Award…whether or not I win remains to be seen, but as cliche as it might sound it really is an honor just being nominated. I am a huge fan …

Pencils Down

…and with that, the final round of edits for ELEMENT ZERO are completed.  Now I just have to sit back and hope that my editor doesn’t beat me stupid for the sheer number of changes.  Anything story-shaking we’d already gotten out of the way, but I am an obsessive tweaker, something I hope is reasonably …

The Author’s Den

Ok, I got set up on The Author’s Den the other day – in case you are unfamiliar, this is a site where authors and readers can sign up and create a space in the ‘den’ where you can post a bio, any books you have, stories you’ve written, etc.  Here is an example of …
