NerdinOut Con 2022 Day 1

October 8th, 2022 Holy cats, Rochester, you showed up today. One of the first things I saw was a young boy with his dad. He had just walked into his first convention ever and he was telling his father how amazing it all was while they were in the moment, experiencing it together.

Accessible Excellence

August 18th, 2022 The most common thing said about my books comes across as backhanded, but I’ve come to realize it aligns with what I want to do as a writer so completely. The song goes: “I am not a big reader, but I really liked your book.” Usually followed by the encore of: “IContinue reading “Accessible Excellence”

Introduction v.2022

July 20th, 2022 How does a person get another person to like them the first time they meet? That’s what required of us when we write these stupid distillations of ourselves. If you hate me two sentences in, then I lose you. Definitely for the moment, most likely for today, and possibly forever. No pressure.Continue reading “Introduction v.2022”

Building an Afterlife

June 4th, 2022 I’m writing this while my human blood is still mostly replaced with coffee, so I hope it’s coherent.

a small word

March 23rd, 2022 Last night, I got to take part in a really special interview/conversation (hopefully I can share details soon!).

inspo facto

December 23rd, 2021 As every year ends, we tend to curl up in our chair, stare out the window, and reflect on who we are, where we’ve been, and what the hell we’re even doing. That is definitely what I’m doing right now. As I learn more and more about people who make an actualContinue reading “inspo facto”

Long time no talk, I counted — Holiday Newsletter 2021

November 29th, 2021 Howdy, dear friends, precious family, and mortal enemies. When I added you to this email list, I promised I wouldn’t spam you; it’s been over a full year since I’ve sent you a newsletter (369 days, to be exact), so I’ll be eating a cookie (or sleeve of them) tonight to celebrateContinue reading “Long time no talk, I counted — Holiday Newsletter 2021”
