There is Snow

Natalia learned how to muffle her crying, how to put on a mask that said to the rest of the world I am a well-adjusted individual. Pay no attention to me. Winter isn't like I remember it. When I was a youngun' in Kelowna I remember heaps of snow that dominated the world. They peaked… Continue reading There is Snow

Let’s Talk About Cults

Or more, let me introduce you to my new favorite obsession. Three years ago it was biker gangs, last year it was viruses. This year is the year of cults, and I am so giddy that my astral cocoon is fit to burst! I've been busy working on Book 3 (reminder, you can buy books… Continue reading Let’s Talk About Cults

The Code, Book 2: The Skeletal Bird – Coming Soonish

I'm not sure what it is about November. Perhaps it has something to do with NaNoWriMo, which I unfortunately bailed on this year. Or perhaps it is the fact that it is also Extra Life (which was a grand success this year.) Something about November forces my writing to a complete halt. I want to write.… Continue reading The Code, Book 2: The Skeletal Bird – Coming Soonish

Fractals

She was built of fractals that continued to break down, leaving behind smaller halves of the same person. Several days ago I finished the second draft of Book 2 of The Code Series. It was a little surreal. I've spoken before about earworms, and how some idea can get nestled down into your skull and refuse… Continue reading Fractals

Meet My (Writing) Family

A few days ago it was National Book Lovers Day. I had the intention of making a blog post to shamelessly self-promote myself, but as with all things, life got in the way and I failed amazingly well. I did, however spend some time contemplating my writing journey, silly as it was. I thought about… Continue reading Meet My (Writing) Family

An Open Letter to John Connolly

Dear John Connolly, I'll be the first to admit, I should be busy reading A Time of Torment, which was just (mercifully) released in North America. There is a bonus working in a book store, even if it is a mass retailer. The moment I realized Torment was released I was able to leave our lunch room and… Continue reading An Open Letter to John Connolly

The Validation of Publication in the Writing Nation

How many months has it been? Only two, two and a half if we're being exact. Two and a half since I released the monster that is Between Fire and Pines into the universe to see what corpses it might drag back with it. The response has been quietly enthusiastic. Friends and family and coworkers have… Continue reading The Validation of Publication in the Writing Nation

Between Fire and Pines Update and Other Such Stuff

Between Fire and Pines has been out for just under a month n0w, and what a month it has been. At the insistence of one of my managers our store is now stocking numerous copies. I also have my first author signing planned for June 25th. I've sold 15 copies in-store, another 15 hardcopies online, and… Continue reading Between Fire and Pines Update and Other Such Stuff

Between Fire and Pines – Now Available!

Yup. You read it here first, folks. Or maybe this is just the continuation of a series of exceedingly annoying adverts that you have received from me thanks to my social media prowess. Whatever the case may be, my debut novel is now available for purchase! Amazon.com is (very slowly) getting it together here. Amazon.ca… Continue reading Between Fire and Pines – Now Available!
