An Audio Year’s Best

I’m so thrilled to have a novella in The Year’s Top Short SF Novels, edited by Allan Kaster. This is a lovely audiobook rendition of “Inhuman Garbage.” The other novellas in here are amazing. If you commute, then this is an audio book for you. It’s available in ebook and paper formats as well. Take a listen; you’ll be glad you did. Here’s the Amazon […]

Idols, Middles, and Giggles

I had a dry spell for news during the month of March, but as the rains ease in the Northwest, the writing news dry spell ends as well. Or something like that. Yes, I’m mixing metaphors. And not very successfully. First, the latest volume of Fiction River just appeared. Sparks, edited by Rebecca Moesta, contains many marvelous young adult stories, all with a spark of […]

Audio Promo for Writing Storybundle

Here’s something fun. J. Daniel Sawyer produced audio promos for our Storybundle. He contributed a book on how to produce your own audio, so the audio promos are very appropriate. This one features me, but if you go to his website (here), you’ll hear the two he voiced as well. Enjoy!

Here We Go, A’Bundling—With A Brand New Book!

I’m in a brand new Storybundle. I’ve curated this one, and I brought along a lot of writer friends. This bundle has something for every writer, from old pros to absolute beginners. I’ll tell you more about it in a moment, but let me do a different bit of promotion first. My book in the bundle, The Write Attitude, debuted yesterday (at the same time as Starbase Human). The […]

News, News, News!

I’ve been so busy with workshops, editing, (an icky cold), (a sick cat), and writing, I almost forgot to tell you a few things—and I almost missed my window on them. Before I do, though, let me tell you about the writing. I’m finally finishing a planned series of novels about the Interim Fates. We’re probably going to market the books as YA, but they’re […]

It feels like it has taken forever to get here, and yet it feels like only a moment ago I was working on the entire thing. The preorders are stacking up fast and furious.

Book Bargains, Preorders, Nelscott, and Workshops!

How did it get to be February 1? I’m buried on a bunch of projects, with more coming up. (Yes, Retrieval Artist fans, the third novel in this cycle is proceeding apace.) Before I forget what day it is again, I figured I’d better share this timely information.  First, I’m participating in a book bundle done on bookbale.com. My novel, Alien Influences, which was a finalist […]

Two Mystery Stories, Some Freebies, And A Deal

This month, I have two new mystery stories out. They couldn’t be more different. The first, “Asset Protection,” is a novelette about shoplifting. Yes, shoplifting. And so much more. You can find it in the current issue of Alfred Hitchcock’s Mystery Magazine. The second story is an artier piece in Crimewave 12. Called “Trial,” it explores something much darker than shoplifting, and in a much shorter fashion. I […]

Holiday Reading

Halloween’s over, and so is Daylight Savings Time. I’m already seeing ads for Black Friday specials, and those sales won’t happen for another 27 days. People love to experience the season, and they love to read about the season. Holiday books always come out early enough for folks to read while the cookies bake and the turkey defrosts. So, in the spirit of the holidays, […]

Smokey Dalton in Audio (and a few other announcements)

I’m very excited to announce that Audible has put the entire Smokey Dalton series (so far) into audio books. Mirron Willis voices Smokey perfectly. I listened to all six samples, and realized that somehow Mirron Willis had found the voice in my head. That almost never happens in audio. (For those of you who don’t know, Mirron Willis is a talented actor who has worked […]
