Fey News

First, a new Fey book…only this one is nonfiction. Writers, you’ll want to read this one. It’s called Lessons From The Writing Of The Fey. Lessons was an initial part of the Fey Kickstarter. I promised everyone that I would talk about the writing and the weird behind-the-scenes publishing saga. Sounds easy, right? It was tough to write, because it was painful. I had no […]

Business Musings: How Writers Fail (Part 4): Aging Writer Edition

Do to unforeseen difficulties, I didn’t have a chance to write up the rest of the Expo. I’ll do so in the next week or so. Instead, the planned series continues. I have never read Michael Chabon’s book, The Wonder Boys, but I love the movie. It has two of my favorite actors—Michael Douglas and Robert Downey Jr.—and a stellar supporting cast. It’s also an […]

Business Musings: Focus Again (A Process Blog)

I had two major challenges in 2021. The first was the stupid pandemic. I hadn’t realized how much of my brain it consumed. Even after I wrote the blog called “Focus,” I still wasn’t back 100%. At some point in early 2022, I clicked over to this: Covid will be ever with us, and I needed to put the fear and the hypervigilance in its […]

Updates On Projects and Sales

Just signed a contract for the new Diving novel. It’ll be serialized in Asimov’s some time next year. The novel is called The Courtmartial of The Renegat Renegades. Yep, more Renegat stories. And to think that should’ve been a novella. Whoops. We’ll put it out through WMG later in 2023. And maybe a few other Diving things as well. Yes, I’m being mysterious. I’ve been […]

The First Fey Book in 20 Years!

It’s the novella that we Kickstarted last year about this time. I finished it, and about 250,000 words of new fiction in the world of the Fey. The excess words are becoming books as we speak, but the novella is done! You can get your copy here. Thanks to all the readers who supported the Kickstarter and the fans who’ve let me know that they […]

News Update…Featuring Diving, Fey, Spade/Paladin, Short Fiction, and More!

Whoa. This fall, I put off my announcements waaaaaaay too long. I actually missed letting you know about “DNF,” the short story of mine that was in the 80th anniversary issue of Ellery Queen Mystery Magazine. Good news: you can still get copies, either from EQMM’s site or on Amazon or other sites. The bad news is that the secondary sites charge an arm and […]

Business Musings: Buried (A Process Blog)

I am deliciously buried in work, and it is my own damn fault. I decided in the spring that I would take two classes per semester, because I need to think about things other than writing to help my writing. Otherwise, I get too lost in writing/publishing/reading to be fresh and creative. Trust me, the two classes are working for me. Spanish inspires me to […]

Fun Stuff…With Deadlines

So much to tell you about that I won’t get to all of it. First, though, all of the Colliding Worlds books are out! Six science fiction collections, featuring 20 short stories in each book. Ten of the stories are from me and ten are by Dean. We had a blast putting these together. The books were the subject of a successful Kickstarter earlier this […]

One Day Deals, Storybundle, and a Maelstrom

We’re down to 24 or so hours on the Return of The Fey Kickstarter. I asked the Fey readers to give me a kick in the butt, by joining the Kickstarter to give me a real deadline on a new Fey novella. Usually I try to have work done before I do a Kickstarter, but in this case, I needed a real kick start. It […]
