The complete volume of last year’s Holiday Spectacular hit the virtual shelves this week! Thirty-eight stories about various winter holidays (including a June holiday from Australia). The stories […]

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 […]

Magazines, Reading, Fun, And Rewards

I’ve been doing a lot of magazine reading this past month. I’ve also, for reasons that I won’t go into, have found out about a whole bunch of new-to-me fiction magazines.

I edited the two […]

Pulphouse Subscription Drive Kickstarter—Tons of Fun Backer Rewards

The new incarnation of Pulphouse Fiction Magazine is two years old. We started the magazine (again) with a successful Kickstarter, and, as we always do for our magazines/anthologies, we’re doing our biannual subscription drive through Kickstarter.

Business Musings: Popcorn Bunnies (A Process Blog)

I could spend the next seven days on promotion and feel like I’m working at my writing full time. Seriously. I have the Fiction River Kickstarter to promote. I’m in a Storybundle with a Diving novella that might get more readers to the next book in the series, which will appear in mid-September.  I have a brand new story in Alfred Hitchcock’s Mystery Magazine  that’s […]
