The Full Spectra

Posted by:

Last month, I got a surprise request from my editor. No, she didn’t ask me to write the next Star Wars novel (though if you’re reading this, Juliet, I woudn’t mind!). But she did want to know if I would interview one of my fellow Spectra authors for November’s issue of the Spectra Pulse, my publisher’s newsletter. Feeling my old journalistic oats, I heartily agreed.

The subject of my interview, Tamara Siler Jones (of the ...

Getting Closer

Posted by:

I just heard from my editor, the wonderful Juliet Ulman, that she’s ready to start the editorial work on PRODIGAL. As I haven’t quite finished the first draft yet, I’ll be sending over the first 400 pages so she can do her thing while I’m wrapping up over the next few weeks. That way, we can aim for a late-summer, early-fall release next year.

It’s hard to believe the end is so near. PRODIGAL has been consuming ...

American Gothic

Posted by:

One of the coolest things about getting a book published is the amazing cross-section of people who read your work–everybody from engineers to schoolteachers to stay-at-home moms. Sometimes they even come from different cultures and subcultures, including a few you might not have the pleasure of experiencing first-hand.

Which brings us to Azrael Racek, who runs the Gothic Revue out of Seattle. I haven’t known too many Goths in my time, but Azrael took a real shine to ...

  • Windows Media Format
  • Real Player Format
  • It’s pretty cool stuff–especially the part with Jennifer Connelly, who would be fabulous in the role of Avalon if Hammerjack makes it to film. Check it out and let me know what you think.

    The Agony and the Ecstasy

    Posted by:

    Rick Kleffel of the Agony Column was kind enough to post this review of HAMMERJACK on his website today. His comments are pretty interesting, and not just because he liked my book (although that angle did cross my mind–we writers are a shameless breed). Calling my book a “post-911 cyberpunk novel,” Kleffel is the only reviewer thus far to draw parallels between events in the story and the current War On Terror.

    Admittedly, the battle between my techno-terrorists ...

    Raised on Radio

    Will wonders never cease? 970 WFLA, the local AM powerhouse here in Tampa Bay, will be having yours truly on their A.M. Tampa Bay show on Wednesday, June 29 at 6:25 in the morning. Man, this means I’ll have to roll out of bed early. But it’s all good. I’ve been listening to the show on my way to the office for years, so it’s a real thrill for me to go on and talk ...
