…And Another

While I was talking about dimensions of storytelling a few days back, I did mention that I have a collection of my own coming out. Soon. I even included a wee bitty link to Fablecroft, the publishers. Promotion! Go me! Seriously? I’m really not good at spruiking my own material. I need to get better […]

A Cover Reveal’d…

Bloodlines from Ticonderoga Publications has a cover now! Kathleen Jennings’ work is as lovely as ever. The book also has an official table of contents, and it appears I’m sharing space with some very talented folks.

Telling Stories

Okay. I’ve got a collection of short stories coming out through Fablecroft. The cover looks beautiful. The scutwork is done.

Now, one of the things I wanted to do was incorporate a more-or-less timeline of events and publications in the history of the steampunk genre. The thing is […]

Coming Up From Marianne de Pierres: Peacemaker

Oh, man, I love a good cover.  And, no foolin’, that there is a very pretty cover indeed. Coming from Angry Robot in May 2014, Peacemaker is the first of a new series from Marianne de Pierres. I hear rumours of Cowpunk, megacities, demons, magic, and genderbending. On the other hand, I also hear thoughtful […]
