How I Published My First Book: A Six-Step Process
March 21st, 2023 When you tell people you’re a writer with published books, their response varies. Sometimes, they’re like, “Wow! That’s awesome!” But most of the time they say: “I have a great idea for a book. Can you publish it for me?” I’ll do you one better. There’s an old adage about fish andContinue reading “How I Published My First Book: A Six-Step Process”
Because It Kills You
March 15th, 2023 Any ride you survive was worth taking; eventually you’ll take one you don’t. If you’re a normal human who does regular person things (jealous!), you probably don’t read everything I post (and if you’re a weirdo who does, okay, I see you, too). So if you missed it: back at the beginningContinue reading “Because It Kills You”
Review of a Review
March 13th, 2023 Ah, reviews. They can be inconsequential; they can be essential. They can make or break a thing, or deconstruct and remake it again. However you feel about them, they’re not going away. And as much as I hate to admit it, getting a review confirms to me that something I’ve created isContinue reading “Review of a Review”
March 8th, 2023 Ugh. I’m going to take a break from a week in which I finally got back my stolen car, nearly two months after the incident, only for it to try to kill me and have to be returned for further repair, to keep talking about my debut novella, Them. In what placeContinue reading “Raising Them”

SKP 2022: Them
March 1st, 2023 What would it look like if Quentin Tarantino wrote a sci-fi book about an alien invasion? My first novella, Them, might be the closest we get, and this is how I’ve sold it to everybody else over the ten years since its release. The book is an explosion of pop culture, complicatedContinue reading “SKP 2022: Them”
