Update! Update! Get Your Update!

April 18th, 2022 If you’re one of those people who are itching for an update on my publishing schedule (that’s right, I don’t just raise money to publish books, I also sometimes actually publish them), you’re in luck: I hit a major milestone tonight. I’m finishing up the last “cel page” of Brushfire; without explainingContinue reading “Update! Update! Get Your Update!”

Second Act

April 13th, 2022 I did the math. If I live as long as my mom did, I already hit middle age at 29. I think about hills. What it’s like to get to the top of one and then roll, fantastically, without fear, down the other side. It’s what I should be doing. Hands upContinue reading “Second Act”

Kicked To Death By Rabbits

April 4th, 2022 A few years ago I did an escape room on my birthday. It was designed to look like the interior of a spaceship. I looked up photos of the room online and spent weeks getting excited for it. When we arrived and my group finally got inside, the room was tiny. IContinue reading “Kicked To Death By Rabbits”

Artist 2 Artist: A Conversation w/ Steven Starks Jr, Dennis Vogen & Spicy Chicken Nuggies

March 31st, 2022 Over a dazzling array of a dozen varieties of Desert Fire hot sauce, Steven Starks Jr. and Dennis Vogen have an artist-on-artist chat about what inspired them to create, what makes them tick now, and what they’re doing next. Steven is known for his musical career, playing with bands like Aeous andContinue reading “Artist 2 Artist: A Conversation w/ Steven Starks Jr, Dennis Vogen & Spicy Chicken Nuggies”

An Infinite Series of Quantum Give-Ups

March 31st, 2022 Okay, this is the post where I get all mushy, and then it’s back on the sarcasm train, full speed ahead. I give up a lot. “But,” you interject, “you’ve made so many things! A person who gives up would not have so much to show for it!” It’s a lot ofContinue reading “An Infinite Series of Quantum Give-Ups”


March 30th, 2022 This is it! LAST CALL! There are only hours left of my Kickstarter, so if you were wanting one of the exclusive editions of my new books Cold World or Brushfire, now is your final opportunity! Like I’ve said several times (and for the last time!), these Kickstarter exclusives will not beContinue reading “LAST CALL”


March 29th, 2022 This fucking pothole. Normally I would ask you to excuse my language, but then again, you don’t know this pothole. You can’t see it? I can still feel it. Week after week, I would fearfully drive past this very spot; here lived the deepest, most gnarly pothole I had ever set myContinue reading “Potholes”

WE DID IT! Fire & Ice = Success!

March 26th, 2022 YAHOOOO!! Hey, kids!! WE DID IT!! Overnight — not by magic, but by your very intentional support — we surpassed our Kickstarter goal of $2,000! That means that I have the funds to publish not one, but two incredibly special books this summer: Cold World, and Brushfire. Thank you. From deep withinContinue reading “WE DID IT! Fire & Ice = Success!”

It’s a Cold, Cold World

March 18th, 2022 I’ve spent a lot of time talking about the world of Brushfire, and haven’t shared too much about Cold World, besides its title, release date and basic premise. That’s intentional, for sure: Brushfire is a story I’ve been working on for a long time, and it’s visually more fun to share. ColdContinue reading “It’s a Cold, Cold World”


March 16th, 2022 Some of my wonderful co-publishers have been asking me how they can further get the word out about the books I’m releasing this summer and the campaign I’m running to publish them. “But wait,” you might be thinking. “Co-publishers? Don’t you self-publish your work?” Well, yes. I do self-publish. But I don’tContinue reading “STEAL THIS”
