A motley parcel of rogues. I’m back! Pensacon was a blast, and I’m looking forward to several more cons this year as things begin to spool up again now that the vaccination rollouts have allowed us to come out of our holes and take off our masks to interact with each other like human beings … More Updates and Those Word Things
If you look close . . . you can’t see me (I’m taking the picture.) So what have I been up to? Oh, you know. This and that. A little while back I attended Pensacon (the Pensacola Comic-Con), or as I’ve come to call it, The Last Con. Seriously; I was supposed to go to … More Long Overdue Update.
So at last, it is done! (Click here to purchase.) Bwa ha ha ha! Ha ha ha ha! Ha ha ha ha! Seriously. The 8th WtC book took over a year to write. In my defense I was distracted by getting the last details finished and the Barlow’s Guide & The B-Files sourcebook out the … More And Then There Were Eight

The trade is now slightly bigger (6″x9″) to provide more surface for the awesome cover, and all minor (very minor) edits have been duplicated in the Kindle edition as … More News and Commentary
I am thrilled to unveil Wearing the Cape’s new cover-art, done by Viktoria Gavrilenko, an amazing new artist from Stockholm.

Looking … More The New Cover Is Finished!
It takes longer to write a novel than I thought. And you’d think I’d know better, having been through it once with Wearing the Cape. However, Hope fans will be happy to know that tonight both Villains Inc., Episode Four: Endgame and Wearing the Cape: Villains Inc. have been posted to Amazon.com. Approval and publishing … More Villainy Victorious?
