August 20, 2019: Back up and running

Hey, folks. We’re back!

Really sorry about the down time. Things kind of went wonky on the back end–that sounds a lot more personal than I meant, but I’m talking about the site 😛 –and it took people with a lot more know-how than I have a very long time to get it all working again. Thanks so much to Gwen Gades for the help!

As you’ll note, things look a bit different around here, and there are still a lot of pages and links and the like that aren’t functional yet. I hope to get those all worked out as time passes.

In the interim, Ash and Ambition, book one of “Nor Fang, Nor Fire,” is out! This is my return to traditional fantasy after drifting away from it for several books, and I can’t wait to see what you all think.

I also believe I’ll have more news to share in the very near future, so stay tuned, as us old folks say.

July 29, 2019: ArmadilloCon approacheth!

Another ArmadilloCon is upon us, and once again, I shall be attending as a guest and panelist. But you should come anyway.  😛

I have no events officially scheduled on Friday, but I’m hoping to be there for the Meet the Pros party at 7:30 PM. Otherwise, my formal schedule is as follows:

Saturday, August 3rd:

12:00 Noon: Signing, Dealer’s Room. While I intend to bring a few books to sell, and I hope some of the book sellers may have more, your safest bet is to bring a copy of anything you want signed.

1:00 PM: Missing Men, Southpark A.

3:00 PM: Self-Care for Writers and Artists, Southpark A. (I intend to serve as a negative example.)

4:00 PM: Here Be Dragons, Ballroom F.

6:00 PM: Work for Hire, Ballroom E.

Sunday, August 4th:

11:00 AM: The Myth of the Apolitical Novel, Ballroom D. (Hopefully I’ll be awake for this one, as it may get lively.)

And as always, I’ll be wandering around between/after panels. Feel free to come say hi, and please forgive me if I have trouble placing your name and/or face, or if I’m basically a zombie.


January 21, 2019: Take a look

Well, how ’bout that? I wasn’t familiar with the EZVid wiki, but they seem to have good taste in urban fantasy, if nothing else.  😉

9 Captivating Works of Urban Fantasy

In addition to Hot Lead, Cold Iron, they’ve got a number of other books listed that look really interesting. Take a gander, when you have a moment.

And thanks to the folks over there for the shout out!

Other than that, no news I can share, but I have a few things I’m working on and a few new projects where we just have to wait for the ink to dry. More soon! Hope you’re all having a good new year so far.

October 18, 2018: Belated book release post

Well. Um.

I announced it all over social media: Facebook, Twitter, etc. I added it to the Upcoming/New Release widget, up there to the left. But I never actually posted about it on, y’know, the front page of my own web site.

*smacks head repeatedly into wall*

So, under the age-old philosophy of better late than never… The Iron Devils is out!

Published by Omnium GatherumThe Iron Devils is a bit of a departure from my previous books, combining post-apocalyptic sci-fi with dark fantasy and supernatural horror. I’m really happy with this one–I think it’s one of my best books to date, if not the best–and I think you will be, too.

Plus, as an e-book, it’s really cheap.  😉

Take a look, if you would. I’d love to hear what you think.

August 7, 2018: It’s Book Day!

As of today, IN TRUTH AND CLAW, book 4 of the Mick Oberon series, is on shelves and e-shelves. (E-shelves are a thing, right?)

Or at least it is in US markets. Not sure about the others yet.

Fey things! Dead things! Undead things! Thought-were-dead-but-alive things! Ancient things! Demonic things!

And fruit.

August 1, 2018: ArmadilloCon!

It’s that time again. So here’s my ArmadilloCon schedule for this weekend:


Nothing scheduled, but I’ll be around.


12:00 pm–Signing, Dealers Room (and I just might have a few advance copies of In Truth and Claw, the fourth Mick Oberon book, that I’d be willing to part with for filthy lucre)

1:00 pm–"How to Deal With Writer’s Block," Sweetwaters room

6:00 pm–"The Challenges of Writing Games," Southpark B


11:00 am–"Learning to Write," Ballroom F

12:00 pm–"Writing YA," Ballroom D


There you have it. Be there, or be elsewhere!
