Today, I did an AMA (Ask me Anything) on Reddit along with fellow debut author Dan Hanks. A lot of great questions came in about our books, the writing process, publishing, and so forth. I really enjoy sharing my experiences as a new author, so if you ever have a question, just drop it in … Continue reading Reddit AMA (Ask me Anything)
I have a short essay up over at The Nerd Daily about my decision to try and be a writer later on in life and about all the catch-up I had to play for that to happen. There are many paths to writing, but the one piece you can't avoid is reading. And I wasn't … Continue reading Starting the Writing Journey…late

In addition to their regularly scheduled issues, they also run four themed-contests a year and then publish an anthology with … Continue reading Molotov Cocktail’s Prize Winners Anthology Vol. 5
Greetings fellow...Pandemicomrades? Pandemaniacs! Er, fellow Pandemic-pals? Pandemons? Ooo, that's a winner. I have a one minute, fifteen second video up on Angry Robot's Youtube channel where I briefly discuss my soon-to-be-released debut novel The Phlebotomist.

If you are a reviewer, book blogger, booktuber, bookstagrammer, bookseller, etc., you can now request THE PHLEBOTOMIST through NetGalley. "Another reason why I loved this book is it's nothing quite like anything I've read before, a medical dystopian mixed with a sci-fi element that felt scarily plausible on so many levels...Overall, a fantastic novel written … Continue reading The Phlebotomist is up on NetGalley!
Even the title of this piece can't help but sound both woe is me and Chicken Little, but even so, these lamentations are probably more justified now than at any time in recent memory.
