Halloween is next week and that got me thinking about all the spooky things in my recent books. Because the day when we celebrate goblins and ghoulies and things that go bump in the night is nearly upon us, I decided to share some of the scary things you will encounter in three of my titles –… Read More Halloween BOO-K Sale
Another Dragon Con has come and gone, and it remains the best (and only) convention I always try to attend. Recently I was asked what makes it different from any of the other big events such as San Diego Comic Con, NYCC, PAX, Wizard’s World, etc. The easiest way to answer this is to look… Read More Dragon Con, A Fall Update, & Twitch Debut
The Kickstarter campaign for Awkward Compliments has about three weeks left to run. That means you’ll be hearing a lot about this card game that matches people, places and things to the most innapropriate and crazy kudos. We’ve had a bit of trouble getting the word out with most gaming enthusiasts attending GenCon, cosplayers prepping… Read More Times Are Tough; But Card Games Are Fun!
July of 2016 will certainly be remembered for the Pokemon Go craze. I think it’s a fantastic game, although not one that appeals to me.

Normally I would begin an April post by welcoming spring, but my locality hasn’t committed to a consistent climate yet. One day the temperature tops 80F. A few days later, we get a hard freeze. On the positive side of this uncertainty, crappy weather does keep me inside at my computer, so things are getting… Read More Fun and Games and Desk Clearing
It’s that time of year where pleasure and pain seem to collide: it’s both Mardi Gras and tax preparation season. While I’ve been enjoying the online streams of parades (which are full of mythology-themed floats that remind me of the City of the Gods), I’ve also been gathering all the paperwork for IRS reporting. That… Read More Happy Mardi Gras! And Project Flash FAQ
My first show of 2016 happened this past weekend at MarsCon in Williamsburg, VA. My kudos to the convention staff, especially Artist/Author Alley coordinator Amy Smith, for labeling all the tables for easy set-up. That’s a simple thing, but so many book fairs and conventions don’t do that. When they don’t, vendors need to chase… Read More A Quick Orbit Around MarsCon
