THE MIRROR EMPIRE: Reprint Delays, Rumor Mill, etc.

Sep 15, 2014

So back in June Angry Robot Books, publisher of THE MIRROR EMPIRE, closed its ancillary imprints, Exhibit A and Strange Chemistry. This was part of a wider cost-cutting exercise initiated by Osprey, Angry Robot’s parent company, which was going up for sale along with Angry Robot. Angry Robot has since pushed out its fall releases while wheels turn behind...

So a lot of you know it’s been a long slog for me to stay in the publishing game, and THE MIRROR EMPIRE was a new opportunity for me to get back into the game. This book was almost not published either, but the folks at Angry Robot took a chance on it, and gave it a great cover, a great edit, and great marketing support, especially for a publisher of their...

On Public Speaking While Fat

Jul 15, 2014

I admit that looking at pictures of myself the last couple of years always involves a bit of dissonance. Since God’s War came out and I switched to a job that no longer requires me to bike into work every day, I have – as has happened to many writers – put on about 70 pounds.

CONvergence Schedule

CONvergence Schedule

Jun 20, 2014

Surfacing from the ragged bowels of the EMPIRE ASCENDANT manuscript to note that two weeks from today, I’ll be in Bloomington, MN for CONvergence. I’ll be rolling in midday or so on Thursday, and out of there Sunday morning. Do catch me at a signing or after a panel. I’ll also be bringing a few copies of God’s War,Infidel, and Rapture -...
