“Disgrace doesn’t last forever.” In this chapter we meet a friendly face, Ky’s former flight instructor Gaspard. He lets her co-pilot despite her uncle’s wishes, establishing Ky as a competent pilot as well as someone who is pretty patient and follows orders well. We’re into regret in Ky’s head at this point, further drawing us […]
Rats, rats and flying rats. She was majorly doomed. Trading in Danger opens as we meet Cadet Kylara Vatta, thrust into a situation where she has been summoned to the Commandante’s office at her academy and a seemingly unfair call for her resignation being foist upon her, which we become instantly aware that it’s one […]
I’m going talk about something that should sound obvious, and will apply to almost every game you play. This is mostly advice to people who are novice to moderate at playing, as they’ll see the fastest curve of growth from heeding it. A very important aspect of upping your game is to make sure […]
You know those craigslist transactions in a sketchy neighborhood? You might be going to pick up a collection of Magic: The Gathering or a rare Star Trek ornament, but you don’t want to park your car and get kidnapped? Bring a friend to those is my advice, because this is about something completely different!
The time of year where I get really into hockey in the long drought of my waiting for baseball to begin (which will begin a little earlier for me this year as I’m flying out to spring training in March, which is going to be wonderful).
I had quite a few post ideas in the hopper for the end of 2016, but a bout of flu + bronchitis smacking me directly in the lugs and head made for those plans to disappear rather quickly. I haven’t really had the ability to do a 2016 reflection to the extent I’d like, but […]
I LOVE being told how stupid I am, or uneducated, or uninformed or whatnot. It makes my day most of the time. When it happens, I cackle from my office like I’m Lex Luthor or Dr. Claw, which garners odd looks from my assistant. And that’s all the impact it has for you folk signalling […]
I have nothing to report today except for a burrito that is bigger than my head.
I’ve had a few hours to think about Rogue One. I went in skeptical, because Force Awakens was such a Hollywood soft reboot it was insulting to our collective intelligences, as well made as it was, and I was expecting this movie to be a member berries-filled ride as obnoxious as that. Starting as a […]
That is all. #ReyIsBae
Today I’m going to post something controversial. I may enrage people, get angry comments, lose a lot of friends, but it’s something that weighs heavily on me, and so I have to speak out. Yes, I’m going to post my 2nd annual Top 5 Games of the Year!
Posted this to Facebook a few moments ago, but I want Kiyomi to be thought of and prayed for in more places than just social media:
It’s presents time. For yourself for your reading edification, and also for your friends and family. While I really want you to buy my book for every single person you know and then have them do the same for every person they know… there are other deserving authors out there of whom I am a […]
I have some pretty strange anxiety-based dreams, and have for the longest time. Not sure what’s involved with it but because of that, I have trouble sleeping when I’m not in my own bed, especially when I’m in a car or on an airplane—as I have this phobia where I think if I’m not awake […]
I don’t play video games. It hurts my wrists and I can’t type a bunch and play in the same day. Causes my tendonitis to flare up badly, and then I can’t write. So I’ll repeat, I don’t play video games. Except for Final Fantasy.
Hey everyone! I’m sorry I’ve been quiet on the blog this week, as I did promise some talk about the fantastic White Wizard Games Fair.
Today I had the pleasure to sit down with White Wizard Games’s artist, and cover artist for Star Realms: Rescue Run, Antonis Papantonio. He did a great job on the book cover, and also designed the cards Chancellor Hartman, Commodore Zhang and Screecher for the Star Realms Deckbuilding Game. He’s done numerous other cards for […]
In all of my excitement for a new book releasing yesterday (Star Realms: Rescue Run if you haven’t heard of it) I was remiss in writing a blog about the release! This doesn’t mean I was busy. You can read all about it on my facebook, twitter, and all over the web. Here’s the book […]
This is it! Star Realms: Rescue Run hits tomorrow. Kindle preorders are still up at http://bit.ly/starrealmsnovel and I have word that ordering for the physical book will also be available tomorrow for those waiting for that. So excited! If you haven’t heard much about it yet…. well then you haven’t read this blog. But if […]
Something New: A couple of ridiculously cool gaming things occurred this weekend: 1. Final Fantasy Trading Card Game released. Now I’ve ignored all TCGs the last several years because I like the Living Card Game (LCG) format pioneered by Android: Netrunner, and find it’s a more sustainable situation for playing games not to have […]
Last week marked the release of Terry Moore’s new comic, Motor Girl #1. I’ve been eagerly awaiting this since the end of Rachel Rising, which is my favorite comic book series of all time, which you should check out the omnibus here. I’m a bit late in reviewing because of other obligations, but here goes!
I’ve wanted to do a fireside chat, casual talk show for a long time, and on Saturday, I’m going to be doing my first test. The concept is Geekchats, where I talk with fellow geeks and industry professionals about, well, geek stuff. Baseball is included in the literal definition of “geek stuff” because if you […]
Wait, this is a science fiction writer’s blog, right? Aren’t you going to talk about your new book, Star Realms: Rescue Run and its hot presale on Amazon, 2 days only for a kindle version at $2.99? http://bit.ly/starrealmsnovel There you go. Buy it and support awesome fiction! Seriously. Now that that’s out of the way. […]
I’ve been getting messages daily asking for when more information would be out on my novel, and it’s finally here! At least for the announcement. You’ll still have to wait til Nov 15th for delivery. I’ll have a pre order link coming soon. For now, here’s the cover and the announcement from Evil Girlfriend Media, […]
