Welcome to the Party, Pal, or: 15 Things You Absolutely Positively Need to Know About Sin du Jour

Hey, folks. Today sees the release of a new ebook by me from the amped-up war rig crew at Tor.com Publishing. It’s called Sin du Jour: The First Course and it’s an omnibus edition of my first three Sin du Jour novellas. As we approach the midway point in the series, Tor.com Pub wanted to make it as easy and as cost effective as possible to get new readers into Sin du Jour, and this is a fantastic way to do…

Why a Little Ebook Novella Being On-Sale for One Day for Ninety-Nine Cents is a Big F’n Deal

Listen, we’re friends, right? We’ve been through some serious shit together. Like the thing with the guy at the place that time, that was wild, right? But we came through it. Ride or die. All that. We’re like the two friends from Johnny Cash’s cover of “I See a Darkness” by that ginger hipster kid. So, I want to talk honestly with you for a second here. Here’s the truth: Most books just aren’t bought or read by that many…

Top 10 Reasons You Should Make LUSTLOCKED Your Valentine

Love and cheap hook-ups are in the air, folks! Sunday is Valentine’s Day, and I have a new book out I feel is particularly appropriate, or particularly inappropriate but in a good way, to the occasion. It’s called Lustlocked, and it’s the follow-up to Envy of Angels, the debut book in my Sin du Jour series of supernatural comedy urban fantasy-type stories. You have a lot of options for entertainment this weekend, including some pretty sick V-Day counter-programming from flicks like Deadpool, the…

LUSTLOCKED is live! Also, a quick and dirty primer on my novella series!

  Sniff. Do you smell that? I love the smell of pulp and LCD screens in the morning. It smells like…book release day. Here we go again, folks. Today my new book LUSTLOCKED is live! It’s the second book in my new supernatural comedy action romance drama urban fantasy series, Sin du Jour, from Tor.com Publishing. It’s more fun than ants in the pants, an eight-ball of cocaine, and watching every Jim Varney Ernest movie in chronological order. And it’s…

Funny Books Don’t Win Awards So Don’t Bother Reading This Eligibility Post

Did you know Terry Pratchett never won a Hugo Award? No, seriously. He didn’t. Ever. I KNOW, RIGHT? I was shocked. I mean that. I was genuinely gobsmacked when I looked it up a while back. In fact, he wasn’t even short-listed for a Hugo until 2005, thirty-four years into his publishing career. And do you know what he did? This part abso-fucking-lutely blew my mind, folks. He turned the nomination down. The man turned down a nomination he’d been…

A bunch of VERY cool LUSTLOCKED news plus very organized shilling!

Hey, folks. If you’re joining our program in-progress, my new book ENVY OF ANGELS dropped just shy of two months back, and it’s been received better than I could have ever possibly anticipated. Both reader and critic reviews have been almost universally positive, including utterly sick write-ups from Publishers Weekly, Barnes & Noble’s Sci-Fi and Fantasy Blog, SF Signal, and a slew of other review sites and blogs. People are loving and laughing at the book, and the latter is…

An important message from an author (who is me) on the day of their book release.

I have a new book out today. It’s called ENVY OF ANGELS. It’s the first in a new series of books I’m writing for Tor.com Publishing called Sin du Jour, about a crew of professional New York City chefs and magic-users who cater events for the underworld of the supernatural. I do my best to make it funny and fucked up and unexpected and about people you care about. I think it’s pretty good. I’m writing at least three more…

I’m pleased to announce I’ve sold books 3 and 4 in my Sin du Jour series!

Hey, folks. Big news today of which I am quite proud and immeasurably jazzed. It was announced on Tor.com that Tor.com Publishing has purchased the third and fourth Sin du Jour books, the urban fantasy series I’m beginning with them on October 20th with the release of ENVY OF ANGELS. What can I say? It’s fucking phantasmagorically amazing news. I’ve planned seven books in the series, each one titled after/thematically concerning a deadly sin, but was only initially contracted for…

Publishers Weekly is hoping for more stories from the Sin du Jour gang! Read their review of ENVY OF ANGELS!

Hey, folks. It was a big weekend for me and for my forthcoming book, ENVY OF ANGELS, the beginning of my new Sin du Jour series with Tor.com Publishing. Most of that involved Worldcon (which again, we’ll talk about later), but one immensely excellent thing actually had nothing to do with the con itself. On Saturday my editor Lee Harris tweeted the link to Publishers Weekly’s review of ENVY OF ANGELS, and I couldn’t be more pleased. They loved it,…
