Archon St Louis

Unfortunately, it looks like I will not be going to Archon St Louis. I was looking forward to driving out there, but after a long hard look at the return on the investment, it didn’t make economical sense to make the trip this year. Since I’ve heard good things about Archon, hopefully I will be able to get out there on a future date. I have a place near Springfield — the area is gorgeous…

Updates

Hope all is well with you, faithful reader. I’ve been a bit remiss with updates, so I will be posting several from recent conventions and events. I’ve already updated my panel listing page. Working on several additional projects. Five short stories are due (so far) in October. Two are charity anthologies, two are pro rate, and one is for Quincy Allen’s Penny Dread Tales IV, my favorite steampunk series. Hopefully you’re busy too. Keep writing!

Iron Writer – Summer Solstice Edition

Yeah, I admit it. I love writing flash fiction. It’s a tough thing to do. One has to fit the right words together and make it drop into a box that can hold exactly 500 words—no more, no less—with the standard story elements present. Over at the Iron Writer website, my short 500-word story is titled The Rescuers. I wanted to make this one have more action and to have a strong female protagonist. Hopefully,…

Compensating the Entertainment

Something that has come up often concerns panelists at conventions. Many conventions require panelists to pay full price to get into the con. Most of the ones I attend grant the panelist at least one, but sometimes two, tickets to the show. Of course, this is assuming the panelist will be on a set number of events, typically two or three per day minimum. I’ve been compiling a list of conventions in the genres I…

Headshots! (Not the zombie variety)

If you’re actively writing, someone is going to need to see your pretty mug. It may be for a book jacket (congrats!), or perhaps for a convention website (congrats again!) That picture from 20 years ago, taken with a Kodak Disc camera (you’re old if you remember those) will not do. Even if it is a picture of you jello-wrestling a bear. You’re going to need a good set of headshots, so you might as…

EDF Podcasting Two of My Stories

Every Day Fiction will be podcasting two of my stories. Folly Blaine will be reading the stories, so make sure you snag them to hear her talented voice read Steaks and Member of the Herd, both of which originally appeared in Every Day Fiction. Steaks, which came out in January 2009, ended up being their biggest monthly story, after which they interviewed me. Here’s the upcoming schedule: EDF132 – Member of the Herd by Guy…

Chasing a ball around a big yard with a stick…

Yes, I’m talking about golf, as invented by that famous hobbit who hit a goblin’s head clean off with his club, where it sailed through the air and went down a rabbit hole. Except now-a-days we use a dimply ball and metal golf clubs. I just started playing to relax and to get out into the sunshine to generate some vitamin D. The clubs came from a Craigslist sale, and right next to where I…

Back from WHC New Orleans

We’re back from the World Horror Convention (WHC), this year held in the hot and muggy city of New Orleans. Tonya and I enjoyed our trip, but we had to leave a day early due to an event at the Thornton Barnes & Noble. One of the things we did was venture out on a treasure hunt for our friend, Quincy J. Allen. He asked us to pick up a brick of Community Coffee with…
