New Release – Women of the Apocalypse Bundle

TweetI have a confession.  I used to daydream about the apocalypse when I was growing up.  Nothing passed the time in class like deciding what my weapon of choice would be against a horde of slavering zombies.  Or figuring out where I would make my bunker in the event of a nuclear holocaust. My friends […]

New Release — The Sky Mother’s Gift

TweetI’ve been so buried lately with my writing (this is a good thing) and getting books two and three of the Alexandria Saga into an acceptable publishing state that I’ve barely had time to remember to let everyone know about my new stories.  This story is a straight-up science fiction novelette (though a bit of […]

Report from Worldcon

TweetWhew.  Gasp.  Hoorah! None of those can quite capture how I felt after the four wonderful days at the 2012 Worldcon, or Chicon 7, in Chicago.  Surrounded by other fans and writers, passing gorgeous handmade costumes in the hallways, sitting in interesting panels led by bestsellers and Grand Masters, staying up late at the various […]

New Release – Mirror Shards: Volume Two

TweetIf you like augmented reality, stories about augmented reality, or just plain old good stories then the second volume of Mirror Shards anthology might be for you.  It was a real joy to put together this collection of stories.  The exceptional authors outdid themselves exploring  AR while giving us vivid characters and heart-wrenching tales. BEWARE! […]

Mirror Shards at World Fantasy Convention

TweetMirror Shards author Louise Herring-Jones recently attended the World Fantasy Convention.  She brought along copies of Mirror Shards to sell and even gave a copy to award winning Science Fiction author, David Brin.  He was gracious enough to take a picture with the book.  Doesn’t that cover look gorgeous!  And thanks David and Louise!  I couldn’t make […]

Ender’s Gamification

Tweet Ender’s Game is a classic piece of literature disguised as a YA novel.  I’m not sure why I decided to reread it, except that it was on my Kindle and I noticed a new forward by Orson Scott Card, the writer of Ender’s Game.  Once through the forward, I was onto the novel and […]

Why Write About Augmented Reality?

TweetBesides the immediate surly replies of “Because” or “Why not?” (my parental mind is leaking through here), I think it’s an interesting question and one I’ve encountered before, including a recent tangential discussion in the comments section about AR and eBooks. So far I’ve written five novels and twelve short stories utilizing augmented reality and have […]

Writers of the Future

Tweet Storytelling is an art that changes with each medium.  I started my craft working on novel length stories, but a few years ago I realized that short stories offered a different challenge and as I like to always keep learning and stretch myself, I embarked on learning their craft. Additionally, short stories offer new […]

Too Much Information

TweetIt has been said that science fiction is the literature of ideas.  The corruption of expected reality creates situations not probable in our lifetimes, therefore distilling a hidden facet of human existence.  Hopefully it entertains in the process.  Or in more crude terms we can say: science fiction creates crazy ass situations that causes the […]
