Wrote a bunch of outline pages today but the only honest ones among them were where friends took a character to dinner because they could see she was low down. And this is in something that's supposedly a crime/cosmic horror outing.

I'm okay with this.

Since I'm at this stage on the second book, here's the intermediate step between the short (2 page) synopsis and the longer "outline" draft. As always, major spoilers for QUEEN OF NO TOMORROWS follows. I'm presenting this as it was written, typos and everything laid ba...

Forgot to sneak this in with the last post.

What I most miss about life before the Howling Pit (aka Web 2.0) is non-monetized hobbies, or even being free from the desire to monetize hobbies. Now, there's limits to this, like the semi-pro press magazine world (I'm thinki...

One. I haven’t deleted Twitter, but I’m back to being off it, only to monitor DMs for folks with whom that’s my primary source of contact. I’ll post to it when I have a new update here or something valuable to say or a new product to sell because the Howling Pit hunger...

I really was better off in this business when I didn't think about things and instead just figured I could write. It's weird to bodily, wholly understand that, on a level best described as physical, if not anxiety-inducing.

So, yeah, I'm Having a Time working on this se...

So I guess that my trip to the World Fantasy Convention this year was kinda my debut at the establishment. I moderated a panel right out of the gate, spoke on two others. I’m one of the experts now. Got a book with my name on it and I didn’t have to publish it myself,...

This morning I signed a contract for a new novel. If you've been following closely on Twitter, I've been letting some details slip out in terms of research, and I think that I even mentioned titles but let's dive in a little deeper.

The book is called THE DROWNING CITY,...

I was reminded of a picture I'd taken, back eighteen years ago now. Little more, actually. March 28, 2001. It's a hallway in my wife's paternal grandparents' home. I'll reproduce it for you here. I suppose the date matters, if nothing more than a yardstick of technolog...

Saw JOKER. Spoilers follow. 

It was beautifully shot, well-acted, locations curated and lit and retro-aged perfectly. Great costuming and sense of other place that mostly stuck aside from a few really notable exceptions. I think Joaquin Phoenix did a good job with the r...
