Just been cleaning up the website a bit and experimenting with giving wordpress a bit of a refresh. Also, apparently there are ways to integrate Patreon with the website, which I'm giving a try - including importing Patreon posts over here. So, that's exciting to fiddle with...
It's October! You know what that means, don't you? ... No? Well, I guess that's allowable as this is the very first #FurryBookMonth! For more details, including special prices on many fine furry publications, head over here: https://furrywritersguild.com/furry-book-month/ In the meanwhile, here are three short reviews of some of the furry fiction I've read so… Continue reading Three quick reviews for #FurryBookMonth
The book I co-authored with Anne Tibbets (http://www.annetibbets.com/), under the house pen name of Addison Gunn, is now available for purchase! The book is titled Extinction Biome: Invasion, and I'll let the blurb tell the story: THE EARTH WAS NEVER OURS Alex Miller trained for years in the Army, waiting for a war that never… Continue reading Extinction Biome: Invasion, now released!
I’m very pleased to announce that Dog Country’s just recently sold its one hundredth copy, and to celebrate, I’m very briefly making it available at a lower price. Until the end of Friday, you can buy it from Amazon.com and .co.uk at 99 cents! If you’re a little late to the party, it’ll be on… Continue reading Celebrating one hundred sales: Dog Country on special for a short time!
Wow, so. Here we are, two weeks on from the launch of Dog Country, my debut novel. (See here: http://www.amazon.com/dp/B01DJYMQQO/ ) Independently publishing it has been a heck of an experience. And, y’know what? It’s done great. With 60-65~ish sales (counting people using Kindle Unlimited’s read it free on a subscription thing) it’s succeeded well… Continue reading Two weeks on: Dog Country & Copyright Infringement
So. I've been laid up with pneumonia for most of the month, including a six day stay in hospital to receive treatment with IV antibiotics and ventilators after my lungs more or less decided to stop working. Thank heavens for the NHS and fie on any politician trying to pull it apart. Other than that,… Continue reading Pneumonic November
TL;DR: I have an opinion on the Hugos/Sad Puppies thing, people who cry out 'we just wanna write good old fashioned entertainin' yarns!', and the state of Science Fiction as a genre. For context if you didn't know (and wow, are YOU out of the loop), a bunch of people hijacked one of the Science… Continue reading My ounce of bile: Yarn is cowardly.
So. Happy holidays, and I hope the year's been absolutely wonderful to you and yours! My year's been ups and downs, like any good year should be. Just lately it's been spent running myself a little ragged, rewriting things and catching up after a double-dip spell of the flu which has left me with one… Continue reading Happy Holidays, wrapping up the year, and things of that ilk.
Slow off the mark this month! So. I attended both LonCon 3 (Worldcon) and Eurofurence 20 last month, and, man. I did not expect things to be so tiring. I actually managed to give myself a fairly heinous foot blister by the end of Eurofurence, so, I've been taking the excuse to be fairly lazy… Continue reading Post-con shenanigans, titles, and outlines.
So. My novel Dog Country's done. Or, more accurately, it's as done as I feel like I can reasonably make it in the time available to me. In theory it's the second draft, or at least that's what I've got it numbered as, practically it's kind of a third/fourth pass. At some level I would… Continue reading On to the next project + Cons
