This past weekend, Jennifer and I went to FogCon, a small science fiction and fantasy convention based in Walnut Creek. It was fun — a LOT of fun — but now I am suffering the post-convention blues. Big time. Sigh. Maybe a quick blog post about the con…

…where I decide it’s time to refocus, recenter, and generally resolve to be a better person for the new year. Except this time, I’ve decided to do it a little bit earlier. For reasons. I don’t know. If you enjoy reading other people’s New Years…

TODAY ONLY BECAUSE IT'S INTERNATIONAL TALK LIKE A PIRATE DAY! If you donate in any amount, I will put pirates into my story of Jonah, and name one of them after you! Or, if you've already donated, let me know if you want a pirate named after you.
Once again, Jennifer and I will be participating in National Novel Writing Month. That is to say, in November we will both commit to writing a 50,000 word original novel. This year I will be working on The Book of Jonah, a comedic modern retelli

Um… Pretty much what the title of this post says. The Kindle edition of “The Winds of Patwin County” is available for pre-order here. And at $2.99, I think it’s quite a bargain. The trade edition will be available on May 1. I’ll keep you posted on that.
