On being a hybrid author, and: Apocalypse Seven is coming!

Earlier this year, I decided to sell a book to a publisher. I’m not talking about a book I’d already published. Dutiful readers of this space will recall that I’ve already done this once, in 2018, when John Joseph Adams Books (an imprint of Houghton Mifflin Harcourt) bought the rights to The Spaceship Next Door,…

Planning Ahead

When it comes to writing, I’m not what you call a good planner of things. I get an idea for a premise, a character, and maybe a vague idea of a storyline, and I’m off. Immortal guy who writes like a blogger? I’m there. Spaceship that lands and then refuses to do anything? Let’s find…

What if Amazon Killed Kindle Unlimited?

It’s not an alarm. Although…maybe it could be, because there are signs out there, if you…

There will continue to be stories like this

A new scandal has put a spotlight (again) on the way indie publishing operates these days, and let me just say, this one’s a doozy. Why? Well, it has a little of everything, and it’s being amplified by the righteous anger of a traditionally published author who (commendably, for the most part) takes no prisoners.…

Back from Boskone

An Introduction Calling Boskone my ‘first convention’ is nearly correct. It depends largely on how one defines ‘convention.’ I’ve been to a couple of other cons (Phauxcon, for instance) but this was the first time I attended something this large, and the first time I was a panelist.

Boskone 56

Let’s talk about Boskone! I’ll be attending Boskone 56, the Boston-based sci-fi/fantasy/horror convention, from February 15th– 17th, and I might not need to tell you this, but I’m pretty excited. I’m not a convention kind of guy, but that doesn’t mean I don’t want to be. It only means I have not, historically, attended conventions.…
