FULL BLEED: BUT REALLY I’M NOT ACTUALLY YOUR FRIEND

I saw a post recently talking about how authors need to be more like YouTubers if they want to sell books.

Honestly, folks, I wish it was that easy. I would love for it to be that easy. Firstly, getting to be a YT celebrity isn’t an […]

FULL BLEED: SUBTLE AND PATIENT

 

A wise friend once passed along a saying. “We don’t forgive others because they deserve it, but but because we deserve peace.” Which is a cold way of looking at things, but perhaps it’s also self-preservation coming into play. I think about that sometimes, not a lot, but sometimes.

“All that hate’s gonna […]

FULL BLEED: IT’S ALWAYS THE QUIET ONES

Yes, I took last week off from this. Of course, it’s hard to call it a job if you’re not getting paid, right? So maybe I just typed fewer words or something. Things are late this week due to a variety of family things coming together and happening all around the same time. The […]

FULL BLEED: COME CLOSER AND SEE

Let’s catch up.

1. I’m working on STRANGEWAYS again, and to that end, I’m reposting at least the first chapters of MURDER MOON and THE THIRSTY. I may repost the whole thing because I can hardly see it making sales any worse at this point. Updates Tuesday-Friday with some kind of bonus post Friday. […]

Surfacing

Ah, but blogs are dead, right? It’s all about your free contributions of content to #branded platforms so that you can extend your reach and find like-minded individuals to help broadcast your thoughts, beliefs and most-importantly, your projects.

Pretty sure it’s clear where I stand on all that. If not, well, Facebook wants to […]

FULL BLEED: WAKING THE WITCH

It’s that season again. The trees are being steadily shorn of leaves, but the grass beneath them grows, having slept out the summer. The pumpkins are being put away, whether in pieces after vandalism or whole and unloved past their expiration date. It’s November. It’s that time.

National Novel Writing Month is […]

FULL BLEED: TERMINATION STATION GREY

Let’s get the news out of the way first.

1) I signed a contract yesterday. Kind of a big deal for me because it’s not something I’ve done very often. Last time was a story for Blizzard Entertainment, which actually has yet to be printed (meaning that it won’t ever be.)

2) It’s for […]

FULL BLEED: ABYSSAL

2016 continues to be an unpredictable mother of a year. I know, for everyone, right? But me and my family have had a few punches thrown that we didn’t see coming, and payments from others are coming due.

One thing that I probably didn’t talk up enough was appearing in TOMORROW’S CTHULHU from Broken […]

FULL BLEED: DEEP WATER

Teased this one earlier this week so I should actually commit to it. Life got in the way for a little while, which is why I’m doing it now and not a couple days ago when it was fresh.

So I was listening to one of those shows that turns up on NPR (yes, […]

FULL BLEED: CONDUIT

Buckle up.

Readers over the last year or so will note a decided edge in my voice, which rises and falls at times but never falls away, not completely.

I want to say that it’s time to put that edge away, but there is no occasion for that, probably because I’m backed into a […]
