8-Ball's Tale [A Sawyer Jackson short story!]

8-Ball's Tale [A Sawyer Jackson short story!]

If you've read my Sawyer Jackson books, you'll immediately recognize 8-Ball—the Akashic Sphere who is the sum total of all knowledge in the Omni. He also happens to be best buds with Xander Travel, and eventually Sawyer Jackson himself.

[SNEAK PEEK] "Sawyer Jackson and the Shadow Strait" — "Two Wolves at War"

[SNEAK PEEK] "Sawyer Jackson and the Shadow Strait" — "Two Wolves at War"

The second Sawyer Jackson book is done and in edit! I'm looking at a mid- to late-October release. Ideally, I'd love to release it on my birthday, October 12. So I'm diligently working on the edit now, and "Sawyer Jackson and the Shadow Strait" will soon be ready for your perusal and review.

In the meantime, I thought you might appreciate a quick sneak peek. The following scene happens early in the book, and becomes pivotal to the development of Sawyer as a character. It's one of my favorite scenes, and I think you'll love it. No serious spoilers here, but if you're squeamish about that sort of thing this is your chance to ditch out!

For the rest of you, I give you "Two Wolves at War."

Yikes! It's been too long. Do you guys remember me?

If not, I understand. I keep meaning to write. Actually, I do write—but it's almost all in books these days! I'm chalking that up to "a good thing."

103% - First draft DONE for "Sawyer Jackson & the Long Land"

103% - First draft DONE for "Sawyer Jackson & the Long Land"

I couldn't be more excited about this. Don't let the drab little period at the end of that last sentence fool you. I'm walking that thin line of using up the world's supply of exclamation points. 

But awesome!

New ebook — Two Blocks East

New ebook — Two Blocks East

This is kind of fun. 

Again, I'm going through my back catalog of books and short fiction, polishing some things up, putting nifty covers on them, and releasing them as ebooks. This is a great way to put some of my older work out there for people to see, even some of the stories that have been published previously in various magazines and anthologies.

Citadel update - Outline progress!

Citadel update - Outline progress!

"Good news, everyone!"

If you heard that in the voice of Dr. Farnsworth, then you're my kind of people.

But seriously ... good news! I've officially outlined the first three chapters and most of the fourth chapter of "Children of Light." Not as exciting as saying "I've officially WRITTEN the first three chapters," but we take what victories we can. And that's one.

Progress! "Citadel: Children of Light" begins, Books 1 & 2 get a refresh

Progress! "Citadel: Children of Light" begins, Books 1 & 2 get a refresh

Progress on "Children of Light!"

As promised, I am finally getting a start on this book. Also as promised, I'm re-releasing Books 1 & 2 with spiffy new covers, but even more importantly with spiffy new edits! There were goofs and glitches that bugged me about both books, and some pretty heinous ones at that. Some fairly stupid mistakes were made. And now, hopefully, they are all corrected [...]

Green World

Robbie and I had talked about "the shop" for years. Everyone did. It had stood there, empty, since before I was born. At least, I think it had. Robbie thinks it might have closed down just a few years ago, when we were still in grade school. And he says that he might have seen the inside once when it was still open. He remembers there being lots of people wearing hard hats and goggles, moving big pieces of metal around, sparks flying from welding rigs, and a lot of cursing and music. He remembers seeing a picture of a naked woman tacked to the peg board on someone's workbench, and his dad pulling him away before he could get a really good look.
