All About Print Editions

I’m probably going to bore you today. I want to talk a little about print editions, and I’m afraid that when I do so, I’m going to end up so far in the weeds that you’ll discover that I have bored you. Hopefully, this will be a surprise. Anyway, you’ve been warned. Now then. Let’s talk…

Tandemstar: Two Suns at Sunset in audio

Way back in the halcyon days of, oh, April, 2019, I made a number of discrete choices regarding how to plan out the next few years of my writing career. They were as follows: write a standalone apocalypse book to sell to the publisher; plan and self-publish a new sci-fi series to fill in the…

Tandemstar: World Map

I have learned, over the years, that I’m not the most visual of people. When presented with a list of numbers (an Excel sheet, say) and a graph of those same numbers, I learn more from the list than from the graph.

As we approach the release date for the first book in the Tandemstar series (Two Suns at Sunset, Book One in the Outcast Cycle) I thought it’d better carve out some time to discuss the planet itself.

Sixty Thoughts on Star Wars

I had a bunch of thoughts after watching The Rise of Skywalker. Here are sixty of them. SPOILER ALERT: Stop reading if you haven’t seen all nine of the Star Wars films, plus Rogue One. If you missed Solo, that’s okay, because I’m pretending it didn’t exist. 1: I’ve been thinking a lot about what…

Immortal Series Order: Mandatory and Optional Reading

Ahead of the release of the sixth (and perhaps final) book of the Immortal Series (Immortal: Last Call, coming out Jan 7, 2020), it’s time for one last review of what to read first, and in what order. This time, I’m breaking up the list between mandatory and optional additional reading, for reasons that will…
