Today is N7 Day. For those not in the know, it’s a commemoration date for Bioware’s Mass Effect games. On the superficial level, I’ll just say Mass Effect is one of my favorite games ever. I still do a full replay of the entire trilogy* every now and then. The thing is, though, if you … Continue reading Do I sound like that?
Halloween is around the corner! And with all the hubbub over Stephen King movie adaptations in the news lately, I’ve had some recent conversations with friends about my personal favorite classic horror authors. I was shocked at how many people hadn’t heard of some of them. So I’m sharing some of my recommendations here, in … Continue reading As the lights went black
A friend who recently dipped his toe into the web serial waters asked me to point him toward a noob guide to setting up a free WordPress site with a layout similar to the one I used for Graves and Crowmakers. Sadly, I know of no such guide. I spent a lot of time tinkering … Continue reading Welcome to the Jungle
My life sort of veered away from writerly pursuits over the last month. I've used some of the time to take a step back and start reassessing career goals, that sort of thing. But I'm still here! May is turning out to be a little bit about new connections. There is a lovely community of … Continue reading Impressions & Guest Appearances
The Crowmakers hiatus is over! You can read the opening scene of Episode 4: Then Came The Rain at both the official Crowmakers web serial and at Royal Road Legends. I'm back into the thick of being excited to see where the story takes us next and nervous about not already knowing. It's funny how … Continue reading Then Came The Rain
On January 30, Graves wrapped up. The finale featured explosions, reflections, reunions, and hints of possibilities for the future. I miss writing in that world already, and new ideas keep whispering temptingly in my ear all the time. (Happily reinforced by comments and messages from Graves readers--love you guys!) As of February 2, Crowmakers is … Continue reading Missed You On Monday
In my worlds this month: The Graves gang is up to their eyeballs in an attempted revolutionary coup. So far, so good--but Commander Tapia isn't going down easy, and she holds the lives of thousands in Ardica City's sub-levels in her wicked hands. The final showdown is on. There's a showdown of sorts happening in … Continue reading New Year, New Words
Readership stats for Graves exploded this month! Most of the hits appear to be coming from Top Web Fiction, so my gratitude to them and to those of my readers who voted Graves high enough on the list to gain some extra visibility there. Welcome to any of those new Graves fans who have made … Continue reading Ho, ho… whoa!
This month in my worlds... In Crowmakers, screws are tightening and mysteries are thickening. (Just what is going on with those Crows, anyhow?) Graves Episode 7 finale is up! Ep 8, "Lanterns," will launch on Monday. (Rise Against, for those wanting to give the titular song a listen.) There's time to catch up at the … Continue reading November News
Following the indefinite delay of the publication of the second book in the Crowmakers series and the success of Graves, I regrouped and have taken Crowmakers in a new direction. You can now read the continuation of Crowmakers in web serial format. Here's the official blurb: AUTOMATIC WEAPONS, ANCIENT POWER, AND A WHOLE LOT OF TROUBLE. The experimental … Continue reading More web serial news!
