Naturally, he’s in the Non-fiction group and I’m in Suspense/Horror (up against Hugh Howey’s I, […]

A friend of mine and fellow auteur (because I like using that pretentious word whenever I can) passed on a 2009 blog post from one of my favorite writers, Neil Gaiman. This fine friend, who happens to also be a member of my local writing group that I skipped out on last night (sorry guys), […]

In which my friend (not to mention editor) H. C. H. Ritz stops by and gives us a bit of insight into being a writer. Don’t Buy the Myth of the “True Writer” by H. C. H. Ritz There are people who feel compelled to write as if by demons—people who have stories inside them […]

I love clever wordplay. I know this will come as a surprise to my readers (not). So when I saw this photo from the Facebook Page “The Creation of Anne Boleyn,” I had to post it. Very clever.

Just like last time, I’m giving away five free copies of the audiobook version of one of my titles: The Dying of the Light: Interval. There’s just one catch: you have to review the book, either on Audible or Amazon.com, after you listen to them.It doesn’t take much, just twenty-one words. But those twenty-one words are extremely […]
