The Awards Eligibility Post Rides Again, or: We Made the Mistake of Blinking

Where did it go, folks? And how did we not notice it passing beyond the veil? I’m writing, of course, of the year 2016. It feels like we’re still hip-deep in the muck of it, yet it’s all in the books and 2017 is here, insistent and fully formed. I just can’t believe 2016 is over already. We must’ve made the mistake of blinking. That’s it. In any case, one of the genre author’s yearly benchmarks has once again arrived….

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…

Dear David,

What has two thumbs, toes that bend all the way back due to a tragic clog dancing mishap, and absolutely no sense of timing? You guessed it, sir. THIS guy. Here’s the thing. We didn’t really think you were human. That’s what it all comes down to, I think. You didn’t look human, you didn’t sound human, you didn’t act human, and you didn’t live a life relatable to 99.9% of regular-ass human beings. You seemed gloriously otherworldly. That more…

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…

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.
