OH SO VERY MUCH GOING ON. So much that the above sentence demanded caps lock. First: I was at Worldcon. I did a recap. I’m told my books sold out there. YAY PANCAKES AND LIQUOR. Second: Holy crapstacks! I’m rocking the cover of Foursquare Magazine this month?! Then: Hey! Look! Mary Robinette Kowal was kind enough to host a silly doof like me over at her site where I discuss My Favorite Bit of Mockingbird. (Hint: it’s about how authors scare themselves.) And: I was the featured author at LitStack!... Read The Rest →
(Be advised: I’m doing another Reddit AMA all day today, so swing by and ask me, well, anything.) I’ll dispense with the self-promo bloggerel right now: HOLY CRAP MOCKINGBIRD IS OUT *jumps up and down, froths at the mouth, kicks computer monitor through the window, throws up on self* Available for in print and e-book at: Amazon (US) Amazon (UK) Barnes & Noble Indiebound Now, on with the post.

You can find the official WorldCon schedule here. But, if you’re a bonafide bonded-and-licensed Wendigo Hunter and you’re looking for me specifically, well, then, here’s your best bets for tracking me down this upcoming weekend in Chicago: Thursday, 8/30: I arrive in an ornithopter whose wings are formed from the skin of the Mighty Humbaba! Friday, 8/31: “The New Pulp” panel with me, Adam Christopher, and Stephen Blackmoore. Ideally, we’ll be drinking. Or talking about drinking. 10:30am to noon, McCormick. Friday, 8/31: Mockingbird launch and book signing with fellow Angry... Read The Rest →
It’s Monday, and Monday cares little for order. Monday is a child of chaos. Monday is a typhoon. Monday is birdshot. Monday is broken glass. Here, then, is just a crazy slapdash pile of things shoved into a cannon and shot into your midsection. CHOOM. • Bait Dog: An Atlanta Burns Novel is available. Did I tell you that already? I did, I know. Shut up. No, you shut up. No, your blouse is ugly. Pssh. PFFT. Anyway. You can check out the buy links here, and the book will... Read The Rest →
First up, let me say this: Bait Dog is done. Like, done-done. Like, in the hands of backers. The book was hard row to hoe -- Atlanta is an easy character to write and, in the technical sense, this book was easy, too. It leaped up out of me -- I barely had to facilitate its birth.
As you'll note here, Angry Robot failed to notice the curious blue powder I drizzled into their drinks and, as such, were bombed into such a stupor that they decided to re-up with me for another two books.
