    Lazy Designer Book 3 Exploration and Gameplay Is…

    Not finished yet. I am working on it. It is just that it has so much more content than the previous two volume combined, that it’s more akin to finishing one of my novels. Which means, it takes time. That said, I have finally finished my giant grammar pass through all the sections and have trimmed several thousand words. What remains is a reread of the entire thing and I have to create some of the images needed to accompany the text (and the cover). Then I’ll start preparing it for publication. There’s no legitimate reason for me not to have it online before end of May. Part of the…

    If you’d like to read my science fiction story, “Inside Magic Circles” it is now available at Perihelion Science Fiction. You can read the current issue for free.

    March Madness

    A few days late posting this but we were busy over the holidays. Anyways, March turned out to be an interesting month, in terms of writing. I ended up selling three stories. I’ve previously mentioned “Great White” being included in Crossed Genre’s anthology “Oomph: A little super goes a long way” and Perihelion accepting “Magic Circles”. In addition I’ve sold a fantasy story (that I had previously sold to a market that ended up folding before the story was published). I’ll give a few more details once contracts are signed but this is a market I’ve sold to previously. And in unrelated news, I finally found out what happened to…
