Priced to Die

“Why We Should Fear Ourselves More Than Pirates” So now that I’m seeing reports of SOPA and PIPA having been defeated by overwhelming negative opinion many are breathing sighs of relief. And others are cursing violently (but generally silently). Among game developers and writers, my two primary areas of interaction, opinions are mixed. Many are […]

Lazy Designer

I’m still on target for a late August/early September release of book 1 of the Lazy Designer. This first book will delve into getting a game development career and will include practical advice and a few anecdotes from my days at BioWare to help emphasize points. Anyways most of the content is already present on […]

Stories and Amazon Sales

So something strange happened this week… one of my stories was priced ‘free’ on Amazon (I mentioned it briefly last post). So far my publishing short story reprints to Amazon… Smashwords… AnthologyBuilder has been mostly an experiment in ePublishing, testing the waters so to speak.

Publishers – get your eBooks right please

My last post was a quick review of “Present at the Future”. I didn’t want to mar the review with complaints about eBooks because they aren’t relevant to the specific book (i.e., not the fault of the author). But the publisher (and all publishers) need to wake up and start doing a better job with […]

Black Gate has arrived!

Received issue 14 of Black Gate and have started reading it. The magazine is a print magazine but given the expense of using the postal system, I elected to continue my subscription via PDF. So far happy with it. Formatting is good, I’ll test it on a variety of devices and give an update later. […]

Randy Cohen — I agree with you!

There’s been a *bit* of discussion in regards to Randy Cohen, writer of the “Ethicist” column at the New York Times who advised someone that had downloaded a pirated eBook of a Stephen King book he already owned that ethically he had done an ‘okay’ thing. Opinions vary, some like Victoria Strauss finding it objectionable, […]
