Papers, Please

So, before I say anything else, I want to say that Phoenix Comicon 2015 was a rousing, immense success. The panels were fantastic.  The panelists were even better.  We sold out of our copies of The City Stained Red, which is tops.  And, above all else, the fans were absolutely phenomenal.  Phoenix Comicon is my very favorite […]

Phoenix Comicon 2015!

IT’S HAPPENING AGAIN! Yes!  It’s the very best time of year, where people dressed like ninjas and people dressed like robots come together for the purpose of buying swag and seeing authors make fools of themselves! IT’S PHOENIX COMICON, MOTHERFUCKER! You probably came here to find out where I’ll be.  Can’t say I blame you. […]

Upon the Backs of Robots

When I was a young man, I never really thought about what sort of entertainment I consumed. I never really contemplated the philosophical ramifications of my He-Man action figures.  I had a Skeletor figure with one of those little orbs in the chest that changed sigils and that was badass as fuck and that was […]

How to Help an Author

I don’t know if I ever mentioned this, but I’m going to be featured in a short story anthology. Shawn Speakman, who previously coagulated a number of virulent authors in paper format in the anthology Unfettered, has decided to do the same thing in a new anthology, Unbound. Said anthology features a number of fine and sassy authors, […]

Second Verse, Unlike the First

Last Monday, March 23, at around 1:20 AM, I finished the first draft of the second book in the Bring Down Heaven series: The Mortal Tally. Currently, it’s with the editors at Orbit and Gollancz, being read through with great attentiveness. Eventually, it will come back with notes.  I will go back and forth on these notes with […]

In The Tombs of Poets

This is 3 Ninjas. If you’re around my age, you might remember it as part of a mid-90’s craze for all things ninja.  After the success of Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, American youth could not get enough of wisecracking young men practicing the art of ninjutsu.  There were a few things that came out of this era, some […]

Tucson Festival of Books 2015!

Hey, hey!  Next weekend, March 14th-15th, I’ll be at the Tucson Festival of Books!  It’s one of my very favorite convention-types to go to for the variety of authors and genres represented.  They always do such an amazing job with panels. And speaking of which, here’s my schedule, just in case you want to find […]

Fanart Contest: The Big Winners!

Okay, so last time I showed you the very excellent entries that really blew my mind.  But these next two just about made the fragments of my poor, erupted brain ooze out of my ears and puddle upon the floor in pure joy. First up, Chanh has sent in this tremendously awesome interpretation of Asper. Not going […]

Fanart Contest Winners: Round One!

Now, I know I’m very late with this, having announced this game back in October, but with so many good newses happening around the world I was compelled to put it on pause. However, now that everything is done for now, I have a chance to post this!  The initial winners of the Fanart Contest! […]

A Man In Search of Trails

Maybe you couldn’t tell from my constant tweets about sex scenes and the numerous, vulgarity-strewn fight scenes in my books, but I’m a guy who puts a high priority on fun. I have a number of philosophical reasons for this.  Chief among which is that I believe that people absorb meaning much more effectively on […]
