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.

Mailing List! Book Giveaway!

I’m establishing a mailing list Hello!  I’m establishing a mailing list so that I have a better way to keep in touch with people who are interested in my writing. I’ve been using social media, which works well for many things. But I know I miss a lot of news from authors I like based […]

Finally, a Promise Kept: Wordfire contracts for The Making War

Many years ago, I put out my first series of novels. It began with The Silver Ship and the Sea.  As often happens with new children, not everything went well.  The Silver Ship and the Sea came out to good reviews and sold well for an SF debut by an unknown author.  It won the Endeavor […]

PKD Nominees Join Forces to Giveaway Books

I was lucky enough to have a book nominated for the Philip K. Dick award in a great year for it.  The competition is stiff – I recommended Ramez Naam’s Apex long before we all got nominated, I read and loved an early version of Adam Rakunas’s Windswept (the current version is still on my TBR pile, […]
