Fifty First Rates

June 15th, 2021 There’s this magic number we think about often as self-published writers: 50. That’s the number of reviews to takes on Amazon to get their attention. It is both a small number and (as someone who’s largest set of reviews is 7 for a book that’s almost 8 years old) an impossibly greatContinue reading “Fifty First Rates”

Sweet Tooth Netflix Review

June 6th, 2021 I just finished the first season of Sweet Tooth (now on Netflix). I am one of those nerds who has read the book; in this case, I own every graphic novel that collects the comic book series that Sweet Tooth was adapted from (and am a massive Jeff Lemire fan, the writer/artistContinue reading “Sweet Tooth Netflix Review”

April 21, 2021 Five years after I was the first guest co-host on Basement Boy Banter, both the show and I return, this time to promote my new collection of essays, Time is a Solid State.

I Do I Do Appreciate You

April 11th, 2021 So, my giveaway didn’t go as planned: I didn’t get a single new review on any major sites like Amazon. Instead of randomly choosing a winner, I just handpicked some people who have been consistently supportive of me and my work (and who I think would dig getting a thing in theContinue reading “I Do I Do Appreciate You”

The Last Blockbuster Generation

April 4th, 2021 I watched a movie called The Last Blockbuster on Netflix the other night, and even though it was, on the surface, about the literal last Blockbuster Video in Bend, Oregon, and about how the company itself rose and fell, it ended up being about a lot more. It’s about Sandi, the managerContinue reading “The Last Blockbuster Generation”

The Jazz of Physics

January 4th, 2021 I devoured this book in two days. You guys, if I haven’t told you, I’ve been having trouble with faith and hope and happiness and stuff, and The Jazz of Physics was exactly what I needed. Like, exactly. I have so much to talk to you about. I have so many wordsContinue reading “The Jazz of Physics”

Best Comics of 2020

December 30th, 2020 Continuing my theme of naming the greatest things of the year (as opposed to the most depressing or most defeating), I have to put my stamp on the medium closest to my heart: comic books. I’ve said it a million times, and I’ll say it a million more: comic books have savedContinue reading “Best Comics of 2020”

Theia’s First Amazon Review

November 19th, 2020 So, Theia just got its first Amazon review, and it is hands down one the best reviews I have ever been on the receiving end of in my life. It comes from one of my longest supporters (for real, I can’t remember a time when I was making anything and she wasn’tContinue reading “Theia’s First Amazon Review”
