Hi everyone! I apologize for my long absence from the site as I tried to remake it and get it a little more spiffy. Since the last time I wrote, a lot has happened, including me moving my entire family to Los Angeles to try to boost my career as a voice actor. That’s all going well and good, but that’s not what I want to talk about right now. What I do want to talk about is this piece of news that I’ve been sitting on for a while now:
Saga Press – the new SF/F imprint of Simon and Schuster – has purchased my novel MECHANICAL FAILURE!
Holy crap! Do you know what this means? DO YOU KNOW WHAT THIS MEANS? It means that on June 7th, 2016, there will be a book with my name on it on shelves all across the damn United States, on Amazon, at B&N online, and hopefully in YOUR HANDS.
This has been one hell of a journey. It seems like only yesterday was in Chicago for my first conference, wondering what the hell was going on and why they put me on four different panels. And now here I am selling a damn book. Crazy.
I’ll be tweeting and facebooking and blogging news and book tour stuff throughout the next 8 months, so make sure to follow me there and follow the blog if you want to be in the know. MECHANICAL FAILURE is a bit of a modern day homage to Catch-22, in that it’s about a guy in the military but just wants to go home and have a decent drink. I’ll reveal more details about the book as we get closer to the publishing date, but you can read a short synopsis of it on the “Books” page here on the new site.
Since I haven’t blogged in a long time thanks to the site’s downtime, there is so much stuff I want to get out. But right now I just wanted to make this official announcement and call on you to join me on my march toward June 2016. I guarantee it’s going to be fun.
Well, I can’t really guarantee that you’re not a curmudgeon who doesn’t know how to have fun.
I guess I just guarantee that I will have fun. You do whatever you want.
