My friend Stephanie Osborn has a new book out today. Looks cool! here’s the info: Chromosphere Press Announces the Latest from Stephanie Osborn! 2 January 2017 — Huntsville, AL
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 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.
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 […]
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 […]
It’s not secret I’ve been thinking a lot about space opera recently. It’s my favorite thing to both read and write and I’ll be coming out with my first book in the genre in short order! In the meantime though, I’ve put together my list of my top five favorite all time space opera series. Any of […]
I wrote a book over the last year or so (did a few drafts of it), and in the editorial process my editor, Jennifer Brozek, did actually take out all of my left-out oxford comma instances and put in commas, which she cannot do on my blog! Muahaha. Yes, I laugh in sinister manners over […]
I’ve mentioned on various social media in the last couple months that I’ve been rewatching Star Trek: Enterprise, which was rebranded as simply “Enterprise” from the onset to try to appeal to a younger, hipper, I have no idea what they thought they were doing with either that or the theme song, now that […]
The Rich Hill Sweepstakes is officially over! I’m going to include the last couple weeks in general in this, as this all started with the Chapman trade from the Yankees to the Cubs. But who did the best? Who did the worst? Here we go, starting with the losers this year:
I went into Star Trek: Beyond unsure if I was even going to see the movie. The Star Trek reboot has been wholly underwhelming so far, Justin Lin (Fast and Furious) did not instill confidence in me as a serious director, trailers looked atrocious. Star Trek (2009) created a new Trek universe, one with more […]
As most authors, I’ve found it’s a bit harder for me to want to read adventure-style Science Fiction or Fantasy while I’m in the middle of writing. It led me to a period where I didn’t read a ton over the first 6 months of the year. I hope to change that this summer! I’ve […]
Baycon is coming up this weekend in the San Francisco Bay Area ( http://baycon.org/bcwp/ ), with the theme “It’s all about the Space” featuring guest of honor and star trek alumni, David Gerrold. Because of this, and some speculation I saw, I decided to put my list together of who I’d like to play the next […]
Those of you who know me well or follow my writings through Doomtown: Reloaded know I’m quite a bit of a gamer and gambler, specially with https://www.slotsbaby.com I don’t really do video games, partially because I stare at a screen enough for day job and writing, partially because I have pretty bad tendinitis in my wrists/elbows […]
