Cosmic Visionaries…and Half-Off

I’m in a new Storybundle! It features all kinds of fun Space Opera. I just read Dean’s novella, which is exclusive, and it’s wonderful. You can also get my novella Maelstrom, which is in the Diving universe, as well as a completely fun anthology of 1970s-type sf (with an introduction by Barbara Bain of Space: 1999, which I used to watch religiously). Head over to […]

Business Musings: The Digital Retail Space, featuring Omnichannel (Jumping the Digital Divide Part 2)

We are moving through this pandemic more divided than ever. I’m not talking about politically. I’m talking about economically and with the virus itself. First, the virus. Access to the vaccine is deeply uneven across the globe. Early on, poorer countries were unable to buy vaccine. Now, the U.S. and E.U. countries (as well as some others) are donating vaccines, but not in large enough […]

An Amazing Achievement

Our small publishing company pulled off the impossible so far in 2021. Through July, they have published 91 books. (With 50 or so scheduled for the second half of the year.) This is a wonderful achievement. All of the books are well designed and properly promoted. Allyson Longueira and her small team accomplished that on the one-day-at-a-time model. I’m so impressed with them. And that […]

Cattitude Storybundle

I have been doing so many things that I failed to tell those of you who come to the website about the Cattitude Storybundle. I curated this bundle, which means I chose the books and writers that are in it. Rather than regurgitate what I originally wrote about it, I’m going to post the blog here. But before I do that, here’s the link. Please […]

Business Musings: Consumers Jumped Across The Digital Divide (Part One)

From the moment I started writing these weekly business blogs, I covered the attitudes of online retailers who wondered how they could appeal to customers. If the company was big, like Amazon or Walmart, consumers shopped online when they trusted the website or knew that their information would be safe. I’m resisting the urge to put in quotes around trust and safe, because that attitude […]

Pulphouse Kickstarter

I’ve been so wrapped up in my summer of many things that I forgot to let you know about the Pulphouse Kickstarter. It’s our 2021 Subscription Drive, and it ends on Thursday at 7 p.m. If you spend as little as $30 for a subscription, you’ll get one year of Pulphouse Fiction Magazine, four anthologies (maybe more!) and at least $450 in writing workshops. I […]

Free Fiction Monday: The First Step

Harvey DeLeo spent most of his long career working on one thing: a time machine. Now, he fears he might run out of time to use it. And if that happens, all of his work, all of the time spent will prove meaningless. Because his whole life comes down to one moment—and he might only get one second chance. Finalist for the Asimov’s Readers Choice […]

Recommended Reading List: July, 2021

I’ve had a bit more time to read in July than I had in June, although it has truly been crazy around here. I’m hoping that August won’t be quite as insane. I read a favorite author who is known for twists as we moved. I could only read a bit here and a bit there, and I got lost a lot. I realized that […]
