I’ll Sleep When It’s May: Stop. Drop. And Write.

I’ll Sleep When It’s May: Stop. Drop. And Write.

Mar 28, 2014

I’ll be in stealth mode throughout April this year. I’ve got edits due on THE MIRROR EMPIRE and a writing retreat later in the month exclusively dedicated to burning through pages on book 2, and the last thing I need to be doing when completing loads of work is chatting with other humans, even and especially on the internet. The good news is I do...

With Great Power Comes Great Responsibility: On Empathy and the Power of Privilege

With Great Power Comes Great Responsibility: On Empathy and the Power of Privilege

Mar 5, 2014

I had the questionable delight of hanging out with a 3 year old for the last week, and at some point, when I hauled off his pants so he could go “Pee-pee in the potty” he proceeded to sit on said toilet for a solid five minutes having an argument with me because I’d said “Hey!” when he tried to hit his mother. “You YELLED at me!” he yelled. “We...

Surprise! I Have No Idea Your Book is Coming Out

Surprise! I Have No Idea Your Book is Coming Out

Feb 2, 2014

I was listening to a podcast about the Hugos yesterday, and then this morning I read a post from another author about how, you know, as an author – especially fifteen+ years ago – you weren’t expected to do a lot of self-promotion. In fact, one of the reasons I got into this, too, was because it was a profession that would let me sit in a...

When to Persist… and When to Quit

When to Persist… and When to Quit

Jan 24, 2014

My recent guest post on persistence in the writing game at Chuck Wendig’s place was actually the result of the confluence of a few things. The night before I headed out to ConFusion last weekend, a regional convention in Detroit, I read Seth Godin’s The Dip: A Little Book That Teaches You When to Quit (and when to stick). Anyone who’s followed my blog –...

God’s War UK Release Day: What’s Happening

God’s War UK Release Day: What’s Happening

Jan 16, 2014

Today’s my first mass market paperback release, ever. It’s in the UK, and it’s for my first novel, GOD’S WAR. Yeah, it launched in May of last year (which is why it’s eligible for UK awards) but it happened during a time when I was caught up with a lot of other publishing concerns back here in the States. So this month I’m...

Jan 15, 2014

I’ll be at ConFusion this year in Detroit (LEGENDARY ConFusion, I’m told) along with a number of other extraordinary folks. As this looks like it may be my only con this year (barring News), I hope to see a bunch of folks there. Note to those trying to contact me at ConFusion: Just @reply me on Twitter. Ya’ll know I’m an addict. In...
