As I mentioned here, Wizards of the Coast has graciously authorized me to post monthly excerpts from my forthcoming novel, The Godborn (book II of the Sundering Series), in the lead up to its October release.
I plan to post a total of six excerpts (saving the juiciest for last, natch ), one each month starting in April and going through September. None will contain spoilers and each will be between 900 and … Read the rest
I’m often asked, “Where do your ideas come from?”
My answer is usually some variant of, “They come from everywhere: history, music, conversations with friends, movies (the character of Will Munny from Eastwood’s film, Unforgiven, partially inspired the Erevis Cale stories), fiction I’m reading (a passing reference in a short story in The Weird inspired a few scenes from A Discourse in Steel), lyrics to songs, the list goes on.
But the … Read the rest
Intro: By now all of you know that I’ve been doing P90X and P90X2. You can read about how that started here. Now, I’m not big-time into fitness or nutrition or what have you. I’m a writer, a proud geek, and a family man. I love Doritos and Fritos, and Tony Horton and his eating plan can suck it. NO ONE TAKES THE PAULMAN’S DORITOS! DORITOS ARE GOD’S MANA AND FED THE … Read the rest
Continuing my monthly series of “What’s new” posts, with an eye toward making you aware of new releases from the publishers with whom I work. Off we go!
First, from deep within the rusty, metallic hell from which the robot overlords of Angry Robot Books look with disdain upon the world of flesh, comes The Blue Blazes, by Chuck Wendig. Chuck has a unique writing voice that I very much enjoy. From … Read the rest

It’s May, and therefore time for another monthly snippet from the next Egil and Nix novel, A Discourse in Steel (the sequel to The Hammer and the Blade). As always, there are no spoilers and the purpose here is to give you a sense of the characters, their dynamic, and the tone of the novel overall. I hope you enjoy.
Nix took a length of … Read the rest
As some of you know, this is a big year for me when it comes to new releases. A Discourse in Steel, the second tale of Egil and Nix, drops in about two months (see that countdown ticker over to the right?), and The Godborn, my next Forgotten Realms novel, book II of The Sundering, will release in October. So I said to myself: Self, how can you give away some signed … Read the rest
I’m happy to report that Wizards of the Coast has authorized me to post monthly excerpts from my forthcoming novel, The Godborn (book II of the Sundering Series), in the lead up to its October release. Huzzah!
I’ll be posting six excerpts, one each month through and including September. None will contain spoilers and each will be between 900 and 1,800 words. I think what I’ll do is feature a different point-of-view character in … Read the rest
As of today, I’ve ridden the whirling blue ball around the blazing orange one a total of forty-four times. Given the Numenorean blood in my veins, that means I’m about a fifth of the way through my natural lifespan. And of course I’ll opt for lichdom ere the end arrives, duh. At that point I may turn evil and kill most of you. Apologies in advance.
Last year I was in a mood for confessions, … Read the rest
