Last Chance For Cool Writing Stuff!

Well, here we are, at the end of the year, and all things, good and bad, do close out at the end. Some of them, like the calendar, roll over and renew. Others will be gone forever. Some of those things we might bid “good riddance,” but some of them…well,… Continue reading

Released: Making Tracks

Some of you might have run across the sneaky early e-book release already, but this is the official announcement. Over the last few years, on this blog and elsewhere, I’ve gotten a lot of questions from authors and podcasters and other people wanting to either get into the audio habit… Continue reading

Released: Suave Rob’s Double-X Derring-Do

Sometimes you can’t help smiling a mile wide just typing an announcement, and this is one of those times (for me–at least I assume I’m the one typing. Yup. Okay, then, on with the show). Today I get to unveil to you my latest literary abomination, one that fulfills a… Continue reading

Released: Free Will

The time has finally come. The revolution is about to begin. It is my distinct pleasure to announce, at long last, that Free Will, the sequel to Predestination, is now available for all electronic platforms. The Lunar Revolution is faltering, events are spinning out of control, and Bill Shelley is… Continue reading

But I Already Have a Publisher…

We all know that adventurous types like Joe Konrath, and established types like Kris Rusch, and insanely successful types like J.K. Rowling have been having a ball publishing ebooks on their own–and we know that weirdos like me are going to do it because we’re maverick by nature and like… Continue reading

The Dam Breaks

We’ve been waiting for it. We’ve been talking about “What will happen if/when?” We’ve speculated ho how it will change things when the mythical species arrives: The $99 e-reader. Well, now we get to find out. Today, Amazon unveiled the $79 Kindle, as well as a $99 model. Don’t take… Continue reading
