Daylight savings time just caught up to me…

Daylight Savings Time meme

Thought I was fine earlier, but yeah – I’m missing the extra hour. And tomorrow is going to be even worse, because someone named it Monday. Can’t we do this hour sucking overnight Friday?

Just in time for the holiday season*, paperback copies of all of the Gabriel trilogy books are available! And for a very limited time, I’ve got autographed copies. Autographed by me, not Stephen King or John Scalzi, sorry… * To be honest, they’ve always been available – I’m just flogging them now because of some …

Simon & Schuster Joins Forces With Author Solutions To Rip Off Writers

David Gaughran’s got a great breakdown on a massive dick move by a major publisher, somewhat under the radar. Around $5k to publish, pennies on the dollar on royalties. Wow, such a deal. Writers beware…no seriously, if you’re looking to self-publish and considering a service to assist, PLEASE read his article first.

A little fun for the weekend…

Can’t get this song or video out of my head. And I’m eternally thankful to the artist, Psy, as now I can dance in public without fear. Because I have ALWAYS danced Gangnam Style…

How about a little book trivia? Prizes, I promise…but no cash.

Just for funsies (yes, that is a word – squiggly red underlined notwithstanding), I thought I’d do a little first line matching challenge. I currently have seven published works out there (not including Gabriel’s Journey, which is the compilation of four books), and each obviously has an opening line. Some may be obvious, some obscure, …

Just published some short stories – need some horror or scifi in your diet?


Well, lookie here… I snuck some published works in without the publicity frenzy of the media circus that usually surrounds my novel releases*. * Disclaimer: I’ve never had a media circus. Not even a flea circus, actually. I totally made that part up. Over the past year, I’ve done some short fiction, sometimes based on …

Actual, on-paper sales results for month 1 of self-publishing

Screen shot 2011-03-01 at 4.01.20 PM

I never thought I’d do this for month #1, as I thought for sure I’d be embarrassed at my pathetic sales totals. I mean seriously, Amanda Hocking has sold over 900,000 books in her first year being published, so how lame will I look standing up to that? The numbers came in today, Kindle being …
