Witch-Born fans can rejoice today! (That's right, I said "rejoice" because we really don't use that word often enough these days.) The sequel and (likely) final chapter of the steampunk-magic-imbued saga has been released through Double Dragon Publishing. Yes, yes, I know ... "But you just had your first science fiction (Deviation) released last week!"Quiet, mongrels!… Continue reading Dead Magic Release!
Deviation, my newly released science fiction, lands smack dab on Mars. In spite of the massive amounts of research I had a lot of fun on Mars. Actually, scratch that. Because of the massive amounts of research I had to do, I had a lot of fun on Mars. Astronomy fascinates me. I think stars… Continue reading Terraforming Mars
If I had spaceship shaped confetti I would totally be throwing it everywhere right now! My first ever science fiction, Deviation, has been released by Double Dragon Publishing. For right now I only have the publisher's purchase link but as soon as it becomes available on Amazon and Barnes&Noble I'll be certain to shove those… Continue reading Deviation Release!
Favorite Scenes — Dead Magic Edition
I promised I'd post my favorite scene from the upcoming novel Dead Magic so ... here we go. Once again, I'm not one of those people who likes spoilers ... Unless I get invested in a character, then I have to know if they survive the book/story. No, really, I flip to the end of… Continue reading Favorite Scenes — Dead Magic Edition
Favorite Scenes — Deviation Edition
Someone asked me what my favorite part of Sedition was the other day and I sort of stood there, struggling for an answer. I finally said that Trenna was my favorite part of the book, but she shook her head and asked for a specific scene and then proceeded to tell me hers. Which, let's… Continue reading Favorite Scenes — Deviation Edition
Book Review – Incantation by Annamaria Bazzi
The beginning of this book was a little rough. I had a hard time understanding what was going on, which might have been done on purpose since the character didn't know what was going on either. As a reader this was a trifle frustrating since I prefer to know just a little bit more than… Continue reading Book Review – Incantation by Annamaria Bazzi
Life Sans Two Fingers
As pointed out in my previous post, I made a stupid mistake with an avocado and managed to cut the nerves in two of my fingers. Given my chosen profession, this has been problematic. While I can hand-write everything still fine (because I'm right-handed and all that), I cannot type with the speed and duration… Continue reading Life Sans Two Fingers
Blurbs & The Hated Synopsis
As of today I have 38,643 words edited in the Tapped novel. According to my calendar I should be on Chapter 11, but I'm actually moving into Chapter 13 next week. I'm supremely pleased with the way it is turning out. Thanks to my developmental editor I'm having a blast fleshing out all those places… Continue reading Blurbs & The Hated Synopsis
The Dream Life of an Author — AKA Conquistadors?
I cannot be the only author out there who wakes up after a dream and wonders what the heck just happened. Case in point -- last night as I slumbered I found myself being chased by ex-communicated 15th Century Conquistadors. I should qualify that statement with the fact that I am not in history class… Continue reading The Dream Life of an Author — AKA Conquistadors?
Letting the Internal Editor Bare its Teeth
At the beginning of January I started editing my science fiction - Tapped. (Which is a working title, I think. Every time I read it I twitch a little.) I'm implementing developmental edits that my editor Gabriel Fitzpatrick suggested and I must say I'm having a blast. It's interesting to me that the process I… Continue reading Letting the Internal Editor Bare its Teeth
