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 […]

Thieves Hits Print!

The Diving novel that fans have been waiting for—the next Boss novel—hits print today. This book takes place just after the events of The Runabout and at the same time as Searching For The Fleet. It also isn’t the last word in Diving, not by a long ways. I wrote a book that comes after Thieves. That book, called The Chase, is being reviewed right now […]

Thieves Preorder and Diving short story

Great news! I know many of you have been waiting for the next novel featuring Boss in the Diving series. Well, it’s finally…um…nearly here. The novel is called Thieves and it releases on February 12.

Squishy’s Teams arrives

I stealth published a novel this week. Squishy’s Teams is in my Diving Universe, but it’s not a novel about Boss. I wrote this in the middle of writing the big story arc that I’m finishing up this year. I wrote Squishy’s Teams to explain something to myself. (I do that a lot.) I needed to know what happened in the Empire when Squishy sent […]

First, WMG Publishing is holding a half-off online workshops sale. We did this when COVID started to encourage people to stay in and learn. We hoped it would be a one-shot. It wasn’t. […]

Business Musings: Time and Licensing (Licensing/Contracts)

I’ve spent much of the past week on licensing for my Diving Universe. Some of this is because of the Kickstarter we’re running right now. Kickstarters can garner a lot of attention for a project, the kind of attention you can’t get anywhere else. (If you want to know more about that, and what else Kickstarters can do for your writing, then sign up for […]

Diving News! Cat News! Future News! Just…News!

Yes, as you can tell from the title of this, I’m stressed, busy, and a bit punch-drunk, without having any punch or alcohol. I’m running around like a chicken, trying to finish things before the Anthology Workshop starts on Friday. And then, I woke up this morning and realized (thanks to a kind DJ on the radio) that today is February 18. Which is… Release […]

Good Diving News

I finally got word from Audible that the audio version of the long and mighty Renegat, the next book in the Diving series, has gone into production. Jennifer Van Dyck will be reading the book, which is good news, since she’s done most of the series. I’m told Audible will have the audio version done in time for the September 17 release date for The […]
