I’m going to start with the thing that’s not as much fun as everything else. That’d be the little bit of advice. I have a new book out, which is called How Writers Fail: Analysis and Solutions. The topic is dark, but the book is uplifting, especially if you have some of the issues I’m dealing with here. If you know or if you are […]
Every year when I finish my work on the Holiday Spectacular, Dean asks me if I want to do it again. There’s a variety of reasons why he asks me that question. The first is that this project is a lot of work, not just for me, but for all of WMG Publishing. The project is so complicated behind the scenes that the first year […]
The mystery is a mystery story that I have in the current issue of Ellery Queen Mystery Magazine. “Serving Process” is a rainy Oregon story with a bit of a twist. You can get a copy here.

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.

Thanks to all the readers who supported the Kickstarter and the fans who’ve let me know that they […]

You still have time to join us on the wonderful holiday adventure. 35 holiday stories in 35 days. The stories cover several winter holidays, as well as at least three genres. There are happily ever […]
WMG Publishing has started making videos for internet ads. The videos are especially useful on Facebook, or so I’m told. I’m putting together a few of the videos–and I’m no expert. But I’m having fun. Here’s the holiday video. Enjoy!
September 11, 2001 was a Tuesday. Here on the Oregon Coast, as in New York City, Pennsylvania, and Washington, D.C., it was a beautiful fall day. Sun out, clear blue sky. And horrors, everywhere. I was in the middle—quite literally—of writing one of my Smokey Dalton novels. Set in another terrible time in American history, those books are emotionally dark, hard to write, and harder, […]
