More Speaking in Public (Also… Dragons!)

More Speaking in Public (Also… Dragons!)

If the stars align properly and things go well with the gods of programming, I’m slated to be a panelist at Dragon Con on the SF Literature track. The topic “Significant Short Stories”. The tentative date and locals are as follows: Embassy AB at the Hyatt Regency Atlanta on 265 Peachtree Street NE Atlanta, GA 30303. The time/date for the panel: Saturday, September 2 at 1pm. Find out if I can not develop sudden stage fright or count how many times I say “uh”. You can make a drinking game out of it. 🙂 But wait! That’s not all.  ...
And the Winners Are…

And the Winners Are…

Congratulations to the three winners of the Allies and Enemies Trivia contest! These three folks were selected at random from the pool of respondents that correctly answered the trivia questions in the earlier post. The grand prize winner is Chere S. The two runners up, Mike S. and Rich C. will receive a (very) limited edition Allies and Enemies t-shirt (adult size large). (By the time this is posted, they should get an email from me with the great news.) Thanks to everyone for playing! Join my email list for more updates and other exciting announcements.

Allies and Enemies: Exiles – 2017 Dragon Award Finalist

Something incredible has happened. Allies and Enemies: Exiles has been named a finalist for “Best Military Science Fiction or Fantasy Novel” for the 2017 Dragon Awards hosted by Dragon Con. And you’re totally behind this! You might remember that last year, Allies and Enemies: Fallen, had also made to the short list in the same category in the inaugural year of the awards. I’m flattered and deeply honored to end up a finalist again. I’ll be there to cheer on the winners at this year’s Dragon Awards ceremony on Sunday, September 3rd during Dragon Con in steamy Atlanta, GA. It...
Orphans in the Black Print Edition is HUGE… Literally!

Orphans in the Black Print Edition is HUGE… Literally!

Look what arrived via UPS. It’s the print edition of Orphans in the Black. This anthology is quite the haul– both in size and content. It’s a ton of space opera short stories by some of the most talented indie authors out there. Don’t take my (very biased) word for it. Order it today on Amazon. [click here] Also, I received a very interesting email from Dragon Con. It seems my countless emails to the program folks at this massive fan-run con have not fallen on deaf eyeballs. It looks like I’ll be on a panel the Saturday of the...
Dragon Con Bound!

Dragon Con Bound!

I got home from an excruciatingly long day of work at the “day job” and look what had arrived in the mail– the Dragon Con Progress Report. Definitely made up for a rotten day. Because lookie who’s listed on the “Attending Professionals” list. Me! I’m hoping to hear back soon from the Dragon Con organizers if/when I’ll be on any of the panels. Either way… I’m very much looking forward to going.  You might recall last year around this time, the announcement that Allies and Enemies: Fallen had made the shortlist as a nominee for “Best Military Science Fiction or...
More Cool Things Have Happened!

More Cool Things Have Happened!

So, you might have recently read on my site that I did a reading for Geek Mountain (get it?). There, I met the super charming, Margot Harrison, an associate editor with Seven Days VT.   (For those of you not in Vermont, it’s a pretty big deal.) Margot read from her chilling and poignant short story about a ghost haunting a cinema, inspired by a local theater she’s frequented in part of her job as a movie reviewer. (I’ll never think about the Palace 9 the same way again.)   Anyway, I was blown away by Margot’s review of Allies and...
