I'm excited about Jurassic 64 and Jurassic Galaxy, though I might skip Jurassic Sunshine.

Sigh. At what point will I have published enough fiction that reviews of my novels can stop leading with things like "Usually known for penning role-playing games..."? I mean, it's only been around A DOZEN novels. :-P

We won a historic victory today.

Not just Liberals. Not just homosexuals. Not just allies. ALL of us. People. Even if some choose not to recognize it yet, today was a victory for everyone.

Still debating whether or not there's a potential full novel in the "First World War fought with Goetic demons and battlefield occultism, alongside traditional armament" setting of my short story in the Operation Arcana anthology. :-}

This pre-order brought to you by insomnia... :-D

It’s been over half a year, now, since the brutal murder of Archbishop William de Laurent during his pilgrimage to the Galicien city of Davillon. During that time, the Church of the Hallowed Pact has assigned a new bishop to the city—but it has also made

Artists, authors, and fans: Help bring Mick Oberon to life, and win cool stuff in the process! :-D

http://mouseferatu.com/index.php/news/june-22-2015-mick-oberon-contest/
So, Hallow Point--book two of the Mick Oberon series--comes out in a little less than two months. And we're going to celebrate. How are we going to celebrate? By creating prose and/or art. Here's the deal. I want you folks to either draw or write a scene involving Mick Oberon. It can be action-oriented, quiet and contemplative, mysterious, whatever. It can take place in Chicago, or in the ...

I don't know why people are so confused about Philae waking up and making contact again. Clearly, it just hit the snooze button the LAST time it was supposed to wake up, like all the rest of us do...

Dear Up-and-Coming Authors,

If a publisher wants to publish your work, it's because they think it's good for them. They are not "doing you a favor," and they have not purchased the right to walk all over you. Be polite. Be professional. But do NOT be a victim!

Do NOT fear to speak up, if you have a question or if something seems objectionable.

Do NOT let them treat you like you're somehow in their debt and should be grateful they're even giving you the time of day.

Do NOT let them take advantage of you. Do NOT fear negotiation. DO NOT sign away rights they have no business asking for.

Again, don't be arrogant, don't be rude, don't be a jerk. But always remember that you're in this for the long haul. You deserve to be valued, and as terrifying as it may be to stand up for yourself, or to walk away from a bad deal, you will always be happier in the long run.
