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 […]

Wilders: Mentioned in PW, First Draft in!

News on my next Pyr book — Wilders! My editor, Rene Sears, mentioned Wilders in a PW article on post-apocalyptic fiction.  I can’t link to the article since it’s behind a paywall, but here’s what Rene said in the article: “The fear of climate-related disaster, particularly disaster in which humankind has played a terrible role, is prevalent right […]

Post #8: The Last Hurrah!

This is the seventh post in my POST series of postings.  🙂 We’re funded, but not yet finished. We’re at $3,967 out of $3,500 and there are 45 hours to go.  This, of course, is great news.  It means POST will be read — we have 143 backers (collectively – for the two books – […]

Post #7: The Recovering World of POST

This is the seventh, and probably next to last, of my posts about POST.  We’re funded, which is great news.  $3778 out of $3500.  Now every new backer helps make the Kickstarter an even better deal. We have four days left. Three of my friends put in stories that are in the stretch goals, and I know […]

Post #6: With a little help from my friends

Introduction: This is the sixth entry in my series about POST, the novel that eSpecBooks is crowdfunding via Kickstarter.  For reference, we’re at $2796 out of $3500 at this moment, which is Friday morning.  18 days to go.

It’s more than a story about […]

Post #4: On the Rising Part of the Curve

I’ve already told a few stories about POST – how I finally got use Cynthia Radthorne’s art, how the story started, and how it’s partly a conversation with another author’s work.  I’m telling these stories because eSpecBooks is currently crowdfunding POST and another novel by Jack Campbell (The Sister Paradox) on Kickstarter.  More about that […]

Post #3: A Conversation with “The Road”

This is the third entry in a set of linked posts about my novel POST, which will be out soon from eSpecBooks.  Note – if you get in on the Kickstarter, that will help out greatly. Writers often write in conversation with other writers. That’s natural – we read, and what we read moves us, […]
