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…

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…

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…

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…

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…
