Since a very eponymous piece of jewelry played such a big role in The Woven Ring, I figured a giveaway is in order to celebrate it being only $.99 for the month of August. So take a few seconds and makes some clicks to win one of four sterling silver rings hand-crafted by the author himself (me!).

TLDR: Follow me and share on Twitter/ Facebook to score bling.

I planned on adding to my worldbuilding/ maps section of my website tonight detailing how to do all the Bix sticks readings, with a follow up post (this one) detailing my process in making them. But, as I’ve never learned from my favorite joke (Q: How do you make God laugh? A: Make a plan.), things did not work as intended, and so we’re going in reverse orde...

I thought I'd dust off this old chestnut, which is from Tales of Ayr, which you can either download for free or preorder on Amazon for its release on August 15th. In part because I just edited book one and remembered how much Luca's bix sticks are mentioned. So I thought I'd share where they came from and why they're important to his people.

Secondly, I've de...

Another full month gone without a blog post. But no fear, I have not been idle. The rough draft for book four in Sol’s Harvest has been complete for about two weeks, and I plan to start on the revisions later this week. I know there will be many of them for reasons I’ll get to much further below, but let me warn you—never try and write a non-linear set of no...

Well, the important bit first: I’m a little over 70% done with the rough draft of book four, the final entry in Sol’s Harvest. It’s going to be entitled The Shattered Sphere, and I’m getting the cover done as we speak so (hopefully) we won’t have any delays in getting it out.

There have been some delays in the writing, however, mostly due to some guests and s...

Okay, wow, it's almost been two months since I updated this blog, which is kind of disappointing. Not that I particularly like blogging, mind you, but it's one of those things you're expected to do when you're an author so as to... I don't know, keep up a social media presence or something. Prove you're a real person and not really a collective of squirrels...

This is not at all the blog post I had planned, which does in fact perfectly coincide with the subject of inspiration. If one is to believe the usual portrayal of authors, then they only write when inspired, usually hacking away at a typewriter in a dark room surrounded by discarded foodstuffs as they distractedly run their hand through their disheveled hair...

Long ago, the ancestors slept in the before, an ocean with no beginning and no end. But they grew restless in their endless sleep, so they woke in the now, an empty plain spreading out in all directions as far as the eye could see. And Old Man and Old Woman looked over the now and found it bereft of interest. So they took to wandering together. And Old Woman...

I hope you like mixed metaphors, because we have a doozy for you today, revolving around Anton Chekhov and his metaphoric gun. I’ve been thinking a lot about Chekhov’s gun lately and how it’s both the cause of and solution to a lot of writerly problems. So much so I think this will turn into a three-part series on the subject. So, with that in mind, I guess...

One of the nice things of living on the West Coast (other than it literally being paradise) is that most of the US/ Europe is already abed when I post. I don’t know why that makes me feel freer, but I sort of like knowing that I’m the last one up, even if that’s not true (I hear there’s this place called Asia. And maybe Australia?).

Anyways, by the time anyon...
