Hiami - Static Decay

I have a love-hate relationship with Google Alerts.  For those not in the know, Google Alerts allow you to get an update anytime anything appears on the internet matching a given search criteria.  I thought they would be useful for tipping me to any buzz about my novels.  The reality is that about half the …

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 …

Balticon Impressions

Crookus Comptonus

I really just can’t say enough about my experience at Balticon.  From start to finish it was a fun, educational experience and I am so glad that I went. Granted, having won the Compton Crook Award for State of Decay I was one of the Guests of Honor, and as such they took really great …

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 …
