Why cover artists are Gods and Goddesses…

December 8, 2011


I love cover art. I’ll admit it’s one of the first things that brings me up to a book and makes me grab it off the shelf. Only then do I look at the synopsis and the back blurb, flip through the pages and read a bit. I’m *that* type of reader. Which is why […]

Why you shouldn’t listen to me…

November 3, 2011


Every once in a while I get asked for writing advice, either in RL or in Second Life where I run around as a tiny clockwork dragon and hang out in steampunk sims. And I have the same answer for both lives – don’t ask me for writing advice! Why? Because I’m not one to […]

Welcome to 2011 Blatherings!

January 3, 2011


It’s been a while since I posted here and for that I should apologize – but, frankly, I’m one of those people that don’t really feel that posting nothing every day is a Good Thing. While there’s been things going on here and there I didn’t think it was worth wasting the bandwidth for bits […]

Well, less than two weeks left to go before “Wild Cards and Iron Horses” releases. And yes, I’m dying of anticipation here. I think I can say, without fail, that this is the best book I’ve written so far. With the help of my FANTASTIC¬†editor, Sasha Knight, that is… ;) Now it’s just the waiting […]

Now available for pre-order – and I *mean* pre-order!

July 13, 2010


“Blaze of Glory” is now available in paperback from B&N – well, in February 2011! *laughs* Never let it be said that they don’t think ahead. Sad thing is that while the cover art is up for the paperback, there’s still no cover art for the ebook a click away. But, hey… why wait? ;)
