GenCon Schedule: Indianapolis Area Appearances

GenCon Schedule: Indianapolis Area Appearances

Jul 29, 2014

Announcing my final (in person) appearance for the year, and it’s… a busy one. I’ll be at GenCon in Indianapolis, IN as opposed to Loncon (same weekend!), as it is far cheaper and within driving distance from my house. Bonus! Also, I can avoid the Hugo ceremony there. Because that’s going to be special, for a host of reasons. I’ll...

The Angry Robot Imprint Bomb & MIRROR EMPIRE

The Angry Robot Imprint Bomb & MIRROR EMPIRE

Jun 20, 2014

I wasn’t going to comment at length on this, because MIRROR EMPIRE and EMPIRE ASCENDANT are published by Angry Robot Books, as opposed to its imprints, which were cancelled today, Exhibit A and Strange Chemistry. My heart goes out to all the staff and authors affected by these decisions, which I know were painful. I’ve had a contract cancelled...

Blood from Stone: Finding Joy When Writing Becomes Work

Blood from Stone: Finding Joy When Writing Becomes Work

May 14, 2014

I was sitting around with some folks at my day job, waiting for another colleague to arrive for a meeting, when someone asked me how my vacation had been. “Oh, the usual,” I said. “I had book deadlines.” This turned into a discussion about the trials of publishing, book covers, and author control over payments and marketing. After talking about how you...

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...

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.
