The Book Launch Lament, Or: Being Way Too Honest on Release Day

“Like occasionally I’m legit pissed about the fact that there doesn’t appear to be a fandom for this fantastic series because sometimes, all I want to do is talk about my SdJ theories with like-minded folks (but then I look at my latest fandom experiences and kind of… resign myself to being a SdJ super-fan in relative anonymity).” – Stitch’s Media Mix That’s from a review of my newest offering, Greedy Pigs, out today from Tor.com Publishing. Stitch is a book/media…

How do you fire your favorite masked hero? Find out in “Midnight,” a free exclusive chapter from RENCOR: LIFE IN GRUDGE CITY!

Hey, folks. In case you somehow missed the announcement back in January, one of my absolute all-time favorite indie publishers, purveyors of books and ‘zines about all things masked Mexican wrestling, From Parts Unknown, announced I’ve signed on to do an all-new novella series with them. It’s called Rencor, and it’s a far-out buddy cop supernatural action/adventure comedy saga about two generations-old enmascarado rivals, a tecnico (good guy) and rudo (bad guy), forced to team up to combat evil in…

From Parts Unknown announces RENCOR: LIFE IN GRUDGE CITY, the debut novella in a new series by me!

Professional wrestling was my first career. I began training when I was fifteen years old, at the legendary Doghouse in Jamaica, Queens. I turned pro at seventeen. We’ve always called ourselves “workers,” and I was a worker for almost ten years of my life. I loved it with everything I was and everything I had to give to the business. It was everything to me. I worked all over the country and in Mexico. I retired in my mid-twenties because, quite…

Kitchen Confidential: In Which I Spill So Many Beans About My New Series

It’s an informative, entertaining, and customarily frank piece of business. I give more details about the world, characters, and story than I yet have. I also talk about food, being a hybrid author, and why and how I ended up working with Tor.com on this series….

Plasmatic Fire: My Recap of Tor.com’s Cover Reveal Week

I haven’t felt what I’m feeling right now since 2008. Don’t worry, it’s nothing painful. I mean, nothing newly painful. I feel pain every day. I was a pro-wrestler for ten years. What do you want? 2008 was the year my first book, The Next Fix, was released by Apex. I was filled with that electric-current-over-the-skin, plasmatic fire feeling of the new, of pure possibility. Of course, then the book came out and took a dump and that feeling went…

Hey, folks. Some of you are, of course, vastly familiar with and probably sick of hearing about SLINGERS, the epic five-part digital novella series I released over the course of 2014. Others, however, have yet to get hip to the series. While many others still are new to the party entirely and have never even heard of the series. So, for those folks, I’m doing something I’ve never done before. I have bundled ALL FIVE volumes of the series and…

ATTENTION: A fantastic author and member of my Doc Savage-esque team of publishing adventurers needs your help!

Hey, folks. I’m going to keep this short and to the point. Brand Gamblin is known to many of you. He’s a podcaster and author of some considerable talent. He created the truly delightful Calls for Cthulhu podcast and has written novels like Tumbler, Discount Miracles, and The Hidden Institute (which features the fictional sport of bear polo, for my money a better fake game than quidditch). Brand is also part of the team I assembled a couple of years…
