January 14-15 I'll be at SwampCon in Gainesville doing panels and a writer's workshop with Bill Hatfield and Armand Rosamilia. Come join us if you can.
The writer's workshop can accommodate a limited number of participants and requires advance registration and a little preparation on your part.

Up until now, I haven't taken any days off for the holidays. (Christmas Eve and Christmas fell on the weekend, when I try not to have to do a whole lot of work anyway.)
But as of today, I have more than 15,000 words done of a novel I wasn't even expecting to start until January 2nd, and I am damn well taking the rest of 2016 off!
Previously available only on the Onder Librum site, my Stormtalons novel THE GHOST IN THE STONE is now available on Amazon. So if you were waiting to get it using an Amazon gift card, your Amazon Prime membership, or some such, YOUR HOUR IS AT HAND!
And you know, if you already did get it via Onder Librum but you're just bursting with the urge to share your opinion of it with the world, you can still post a review on Amazon. The Amazon Gestapo won't come in the night and kick in your door or anything. Or at least I don't think so.
I have a new novelette in the cool New Pulp book THE PULPTRESS VOLUME 2, now available on Amazon.
I just noticed "The Picture of Aleister Crowley," my third Basil & Moebius novelette, is now available. Check it out:
New fantasy stories by Erik Scott de Bie, Erin M. Evans, Elizabeth Bear, William King, and me. Edited by James Lowder and Robert J. Schwalb. Check it out.CHRONICLES OF THE DEMON LORD is now available.
I did a piece for the Stormtalons blog about writing in a shared setting, specifically, a shared setting that's just starting out. You can read that here:
