Friday Updates & Sundry

Posted in blog | Tagged , , , , | 4 Comments
First off, I want to give a shout out to the World’s Biggest Bookstore in Toronto (and specifically Jessica Strider) for setting me up with a very nice display! (And go here for the matching interview, which can also be read at the display.) And again, sorry for not blogging as much recently. Sorta taking this month as a bit of a break, but I’ll be back on the ball starting in January. By the way – I owe some contest winners their books – I should be getting all those out on Monday. Got a ton of stuff to mail out, just gotta put it all together. I was over at Word Whores yesterday talking about how you know when a story is “done.” (Ha ha – if only it  were that easy. Sometimes it really is a gut thing.) Fox & Willow was updated yesterday as well –… Read more

Blog Tour Beginnings

Posted in blog | Tagged , , , , | Leave a comment
Okay – the Trace of Moonlight blog tour has officially begun. 😀 So this means in general, I’ll be posting up links every day to reviews, promo, guest blogs and interviews – check them out for a chance to win one of ten copies of A Trace of Moonlight. So first off – today there’s an interview today over at Preternatura, and a review over at Place of Reads. 😀 Additional business of interest? Word Whores is about to have an opening for another blogger, so we are looking for someone to fill the Monday slot – I’ve got feelers out to some people, though it’s a group decision between me and the other members. However, if you’re interested and know you can come up with a weekly post (on a chosen topic), drop me a line.… Read more

Word Whore ~ Fox and Willow Thursday

Posted in blog | Tagged , , , , , , | Leave a comment
I’m at a few places today – Word-Whores to start with, of course. This week it’s all about rejections…and specifically the best rejections we’ve ever received. (I suspect my fellow word-whores have some better tales to tell, as I don’t have too many). I’m also over at Pocket After Dark with an interview about writing and gaming and unicorns, all things near and dear to my geeky little heart, so check that out if you get the chance. (It’s a bit silly, but then…so am I, so it’s all good.) And of course, Fox & Willow updates today as well. Incidentally we’re looking to do some affiliate link swapping, so if you’ve got a web comic and you’d like do a mutual link, please let me know! Last thing of note – I’m trolling for tickets to World Fantasy Con. I’m definitely going, but I’ve got a few friends who missed… Read more

We’re All In This Together…Alone

Posted in blog | Tagged , , , , , , | 5 Comments
I stumbled across this Tumblr site a few weeks ago called Hey Author. Whoever runs it is clearly an author, a reader, or someone who is fairly deep into the author culture on Twitter/Facebook. (And obviously has a bug up their ass about self-publishing).  But as biting and obnoxious as some of the observations are, there’s a ring of truth to them too.  (Some of them are completely over the top, but still – I’ve been “guilty” of several of them.) I’m guessing the author of the tumblr is trying to point out that these “writer problems” are pretty low on the list of real world issues.  (But I suspect most artistic problems are. Writers aren’t the only groups who self-wank themselves into thinking they’ve got an emergency out of nothing – lots of artists do it too. Hell, most self-insulated groups do it, from the HOA to the PTA… Read more

What Comes Easiest

First up, just wanted to mention that I’m being interviewed over at Red Hot Books today as part of the AAD Spotlight series. If you’re interested in learning a little more about Brystion’s motivations, I suggest you check it out. (I don’t talk about him much usually, so it’s a nice change.) Anyway, the main point to this post was just something I observed at the grocery store the other day. I’m trying to lose a few pounds, so I’m trying to watch what I eat a little closer. (Although I have to admit many days have been a rather large fail on that part when it comes to the revisions – I can’t help it – it’s stress, pure and simple.) Anyway, I keep noticing how so many food packages announce 100 calorie versions of their snacks. Which I guess is nice in theory – 100 calories doesn’t sound… Read more
