Wilders release week recap!

Wow – what fun.  That was a wild first week for Wilders. Pun intended. Thought this list of all the events and interviews and the like might be worth putting together for folks since there are still ways to read parts of Wilders up on the web, a few giveaways, and lots of interviews.  So […]

Release Week Round-Up

I’m four days into the release of Spear of Light, which means I’m a pleased and exhausted author.  Here’s a round of some of what happened: three reviews, one reading (three to come), three giveaways, a preview, guest blog post and an interview. Thanks so much to everyone at Pyr, and to all of the bloggers […]

How to Spear Light Like a Boss and other events…

It’s going to be a busy June!  I’m quite excited about Spear of Light, which is coming out June 7th. First up — I’m doing a mini-tour with my good friend Adam Rakunas. Adam is a brilliant writer, a fabulous cook, a fellow bike-rider, and one of the best people I know.  His new book […]

Women in Science Fiction, an Interview, and Intro Chapters

Skiffy an Fanty asked me to post about the current topic of the day – women in science fiction.  My thoughts are now posted over at their site – please do drop by and read.  If you want to include this as part of the meta-coversation, please post this on social media and comment etc. I also […]

Seattle Geekly podcast interview and book giveaway

Seattle Geekly is one of my favorite podcasts.  There are two reasons:  the show is fun to listen to (even if you’re not from Seattle) and the creators, Shannon and Matt, are fabulous.  Here they are in episode 206, interviewing me as well as fellow author William Hertling and filk singers Debs and Errol. Even […]

Stroll with the Stars Friday Friday 09:00 – 10:00 Conflicting Cultures When Preserving the Environment Friday 12:00 – 13:00 […]

Readings, Columns, and Interviews

I got to read at Tuesday Funk while in Chicago week-before-last.  This is thanks to Bill Shunn.  One the web now:  recordings of most of the readers.  I highly recommend dropping in to watch a few – and don’t miss Bill’s poem.  It’s short and sweet and he reads very well.  If you want to […]

SFFWRTCHT: Where a Twitter Chat turns into a Blog Post

Bryan Thomas Schmidt hosts a great weekly chat at Twitter hashtag #SFFWRTCHT, which I was lucky enough to be invited to join.  I got to talk about current work, and Mayan December, which is coming out soon, and about kids.  Even nicer, he turned the chat into a very nicely illustrated blog post over at […]

Transcript of #sffwrtcht

In case you want a break from the generally disturbing news, here is the transcript of a lovely hour-long chat I had on Twitter at the hashtag #sffwrtcht.  Thanks to Bryan Thomas Schmidt for hosting an excellent event.  Topics included my next book, Mayan December, writing, collaborating, and dogs.  Well, you know, there has to […]

Good Things in Threes

Most days, I still feel pretty invisible.  I’m certainly not a famous science fiction writer, and no geek household name like Cory Doctorow or Charlie Stross that gets thrown around the interwebs regularly. But today is a very pleasant writer/futurist day from the point of being engaged in the bigger community conversation. ABCnews included quotes […]
