I have happy news to share! Well, sort of. Now that I think about it, it’s probably happier news for me than my fans, since it’s really just a teaser as far as you guys are concerned. At any rate, I’ve turned in the edited version of The Starless, my stand-alone novel coming out [...]

May 2017

After the presidential election, I vowed to write more about the relationship between politics and narrative; and then life intruded, and I lost the impetus.  But I encountered a couple of things last month that restored it. The first was this video from Vox laying out the way CNN covers politics as sport, prioritizing sensationalized [...]

April 2017

First up, a quick reminder that I’ll be a Guest of Honor at MarCon in Columbus, Ohio on May 12-14! Last month, I had a very nice time at HELIOsphere in Tarrytown, New York… with one minor exception.  Finding myself with hours of free time on the first day, I decided to walk from the [...]

March 2017

Last month was filled with marked high and low points.  I’m delighted that Miranda and Caliban was released with excellent reviews and good buzz, and I hope that continues to grow.  However, February was also the month in which Julie and I had to say farewell to our dog Maya, a.k.a. [...]

February 2017

Happy Valentine’s Day! Okay, I’m a little early, at least as of this writing, but I’m excited because on February 14th, Miranda and Caliban will at last be released.  And I say “at last” because it feels like it’s been a long time coming.  Tor Books acquired the manuscript back in the fall of 2015, but [...]

Happy New Year to all, and good riddance to 2016!  As I sit down to write this, we’re headed into a time of political turmoil and uncertainty, and I’ve just learned that we’ve lost another beloved cultural icon. But there have been a few high points along the way, and one [...]

December 2016

Happy Holidays, my friends!  And here’s hoping that this will be a happier month than the one we’ve just endured. First of all, I’m looking forward to the Longest Night Masquerade Ball in Pennsylvania on December 10th.  It will be a fabulous affair with costumes, pageantry and custom-bottled joie, and it’s all to raise funds [...]

November 2016

Yay for November!  It’s time for autumn leaves, roast turkey, pumpkin pies, reading books by a cozy fire and… the Gilmore Girls reunion special on Netflix!  Yeah, I admit it, I’m excited.  It’s no accident that it’s Daisy and her mom’s favorite show in the Agent of Hel books.  I think it’s referenced a dozen times [...]

October 2016

Not gonna lie, I feel kind of guilty writing this month’s update because it’s about something very cool that many of my readers may covet… and it’s no longer available.  But it’s too cool not to discuss! I’m talking about the limited edition of Kushiel’s Dart that was just released by specialty [...]

September 2016

Well, that went fast!  It seems like it was just a few weeks ago that I was getting ready for our trip to Iceland, fretting over whether I had the right clothing to pack for a varied and unpredictable climate.  Spoiler alert:  I did.  Layers are key.  Now Labor Day is [...]
