Convention News: We Have A Table! a.k.a. On To Mobicon!

It’s time to stop being an observer and wanderer, and time to enter the trenches!

With that said, my first time in those trenches will be at Mobicon, the Mobile Comic Con, in May!  I’ll be right there at Booth #63 alongside a fellow author friend, Will Raspberry, who will be getting his first book out at the con.  Fantastic!

More information will be forthcoming as our preparations crank up.  There will be books, posters, and more!  Stay tuned!

General News: Pensacon Bound

Not in any official capacity (though late last year I had thought about getting a booth to sell books out of) but I will be heading out to Pensacon, Pensacola’s own sci-fi and fantasy convention, on Friday.  I’m hoping to meet other authors, establish some connections, and generally have fun.  I expect to be there the whole day Friday from open at 1 p.m. to shutdown at 7 p.m.

So, if you’re a fan or just want to meet and you are going to be there, let me know.  I’ll be lugging around some of the excellent posters Felipe de Barros wrote up as well as some copies of my books that might very well be given away if someone asks nicely enough.

Good luck and good writing!

Book News: Almost done Incorruptible and wow, poster!

First off, it’s been a bit since the general writing update.

When last we left our intrepid starving author, he was madly scribbling on the manuscript for Incorruptible, the third book in The Push Chronicles.  Well, I’m almost done.  Two chapters to go, which I should get done with tomorrow.  Naturally, there will be months of editing and revision, but I think we can safely look at a January 2015 release, which is dead on schedule.  By next week, I should be at work on The Twelfth Labor.


If you were part of the Kickstarter for the books, you know that one of the special rewards for making above goal was special posters with new art from my main man artist, Felipe de Barros, and the first of those two with art from The Push Chronicles has become reality:


Naturally, I’m keeping one for me.  Expect in the near future that these will be available for sale through some outlet.  Still working on that part!

More news as things progress!  Good luck and good writing!

Weekend Update: Just a quick one!

Some quick updates for the weekend!

  • I’m just about at the halfway point of writing for Incorruptible.  It’s been a wild ride and I hope I finish out this first trilogy in a way everyone will enjoy.
  • Felipe informs me that the first Kickstarter reward poster will be done very soon.  I’ll be fulfilling those rewards and then, after a little bit of time, I’ll start having those posters available for purchase.
  • I have been busy this weekend, but there will be a Starving Review next week.
  • Lastly, I’ll be out of town the week after next, from the 26th to the 31st.  New articles will be sparse, but I should get a few in.  I’ll be spending most of that time, though, spending time with my mother and sister who I haven’t seen in, oh, 18?  20? years.

Sneak Peek: Character studies from The Push Chronicles

For those of you who followed the Take 2 Kickstarter, the push goal after we made our main goal was to allow for the design and printing of art posters for both The Push Chronicles and Three Seconds to LegendFelipe de Barros was up for the challenge and has been hard at work!

Felipe wanted the chance to draw more of the cast of both series and include them in the posters, so I’m proud to show some of his character studies as a nice sneak peek at the coming posters.  The first round is a Kickstarter exclusive, but I’ll be putting them up for sale through an outlet I have yet to determine after they have received theirs.  Now, without further ado, studies for Extinguisher and Medusa from The Push Chronicles:

One day to go: Kickstarter Take 2 ends in 24ish hours!

The title says it all!

The good part is that we have already met and exceeded our initial goal.  Hurray!

The bad part is that we are just INCHES from a $750 stretch goal.  $15 US from not only funding more work, but netting all the contributors free posters with the book art and two special works done exclusively for the Kickstarter.

So, if you want to contribute, now is the time!  If you can’t contribute, share!
