Thanks to +Brian Patterson (design), +Brian Luk (VFF logo), +Gwyneth Ravenscraft (World of Calliome graphic), and Lily Wang (minotaur art), I now have a KICKASS vertical banner proclaming my presence for all conventions at which I will be exhibiting.

Look for me at ConQuesT in Kansas City this Memorial Day and at Gen Con in July.

When you ask someone to complete a task and you give them an example to follow, is it too much to ask that they do the job properly?

Amusingly, even G+ automatically removed that double space.

I hate when I find out I've not been paying attention! I enjoyed the Zack Jackson stories very much, so I've just purchased the two longer novels for Kindle. Thanks for waking me up, +Hans Cummings !

With Publisher permission, we do accept fan submissions. They still have to get copies to all of the judges, of course (less of an issue with electronic submissions, but can be pricey for the physical submissions).

The second volume of Sojourn: An Anthology of Speculative Fiction is now available!

It's even bigger than the first Sojourn, and I have another Seven Galaxies story in it. Since this anthology's theme was "Winter," now is the perfect time to take a sojourn!

Who has two thumbs and was voted 3rd place for Nuvo's Readers' Choice 2014 Best of Indy Best Local Author?

This guy! There's no shame in losing to John Green. I see this not so much as a victory for me, but as a victory for genre fiction!

I will have copies of all five of my novels, and possibly a limited number of the Sojourn anthology in which I have a short story.
Hope to see you there!
