General News: Ahh! Not More Socialization! a.k.a. Why This Blog Was Dead For A Time

Wow, it’s been a while.

First, let me start off by making the usual excuses. I was very busy, I had so much writing to do, I had a ton of editing jobs, and a lot of personal appearances (at least for me).

Now that I have that out of the way, let me knock all those excuses down.

General News: Shaking off the Dust a.k.a. A Hopeful Return to Your Regularly Scheduled Programming

It’s been a bit, hasn’t it?

Well, let’s just say that things have turned into an insane asylum post-Pensacon. A good kind of insanity to be fair … a manic rush to finish a deadline, dealing with a set-up for something huge around the corner, and prepping for what looks to be a busy convention season ahead. There are new projects brewing, bits of which I hope to share with you all soon. Sometime in this mess, I also need to actually, you know, read a book or two for those of you waiting for more reviews.

To make the announcements, though, I have just recently put out a new book, another co-authored project with J. A. Cipriano, and my first toedip into the LitRPG genre. Also, once again, I am honored to be appearing at the end of this month at the Bard’s Tower mobile bookstore, this time at Planet Comic Con in Kansas City.

More news and specifics to come!

Until next time (hopefully far sooner than last), good reading, good writing, and good luck!

General News: Hard At Work! a.k.a. An Updates About Updates?!

Another layer and we’d be at Update Inception.

I’m in the midst of:

  • Getting final bits done and the art in for Rune Service. Yes, it is still coming.
  • Working on a new collaboration of J. A. Cipriano which should come to fruition sometime in March
  • Getting prepped for Pensacon in just a few weeks!
  • Reading two books at once for reviews and such.

So yes, much going on, much knees-bent-advancing behavior. Expect reviews to be posted soon and plenty of up-to-the minute news once Pensacon starts!

General News: A Week of Sick (Not The Cool 90’s Kind of Sick)! a.k.a. Recovery and Getting Back to Work

So it’s been quiet around here for a little bit after my last big announcement and I apologize for that. Unfortunately, unlike some silences, this one wasn’t for a good reason as I’ve been sick as all get out for a bit. Thankfully, I’m now back to maybe 80 percent, which means things are about to get back to business.

Some quick updates on what little I have managed to accomplish in the meantime:

  • Rune Service has been moved back to later this month. The manuscript is tight, the editing is just about done, and the art is on its way!
  • Everything is on course for Pensacon! My stock should be in next week, as well as some fresh new business cards. My excitement continues to grow!
  • I did get some reading and some listening done while I was convalescing. We will have both a Starving Review and a Starving Audioreview this coming week, maybe even TWO Reviews.
  • My schedule is also heating up as I enter into some new writing and editing contracts this month. That may mean we’ll be sticking to the bare basics in terms of updates until these deadlines are met. Wish me luck!

Thank you for your patience in this regard! Expect new content by the end of the week and until then, good reading, good writing, and good luck!

Starving Review Update: Submission Rules and Such!

A quickie update as I prepare for upcoming events, I have revised the submission rules for a Starving Review.

In essence, review submissions are open … kind of. I will be taking a VERY LIMITED amount of submissions, books that make in impact on me from authors that can impress their true passion and wit on me. So do your best and if I don’t get back to you, do not feel ignored or insulted.

General News: A Birthday Update

Just a real quick one here, as it is my 40th birthday and there are things that require my now-mature attention:

  • The Twelfth Labor is now available in paperback, either through Amazon or through CreateSpace.
  • As I got two Starving Reviews out early in the week, this Friday’s content will be a fresh Writing Is A Bad Habit, with reviews back next Friday.
  • My big solo-authored sale is still on for another day. Get all my solo-written e-books from Amazon for only $.99 USD a piece!

Now I’m going back to enjoying my birthday! See you all again on tomorrow!
