I landed in South Africa today after a long series of flights from San Francisco. As soon as I got in my rental car, I drove straight to the boat yard in St. Francis Bay. With my camera in hand, I walked through the boat for the first time in twelve weeks. We are probably… more

I’ve had a few Twitter followers ask me to update them when new releases come out. Guess what? Amazon has this figured out for us. They’ve got a new “Follow” feature they’ve been rolling out the past few weeks, and it seriously rocks. When authors release new titles, we are now given the ability to… more

A couple weeks ago, I wrote a post about how my ebooks could now be found in the Kindle Unlimited program. I said I would give away a 6-month subscription to Kindle Unlimited to five of my readers, and all they had to do to qualify was leave a comment on that blog post. Readers… more

I work with what I believe to be the best editor in the business. David Gatewood has become the editor for indie authors, with his services highly in-demand. David has worked with me since I published WOOL. He’s had a hand in nearly everything I’ve written since. As I was going through his edits for the latest BEACON… more

Before I wrote my first novel, I daydreamed about taking everything I was learning about myself, and all the nonfiction reading I do, and distilling it down into digestible bits… more

I recently had someone ask me via Facebook how I dealt with those days when I just didn’t feel like writing. They wanted to know if this even happened to me, and if so, what do I do to get over it? I don’t listen to music while I write, but I do listen to… more

Announced today, on the first day of Comic Con here in San Diego: Imperative Entertainment, the company behind the reboot of NBC’s HEROES, is developing SAND for television. The Hollywood Reporter broke the news. You can read their coverage here. I’m so thrilled with the team behind this. They totally got the novel and have an… more

I grew up going to the library, because my family couldn’t afford my reading habit. Each week, I would leave with a stack of books, and I remember feeling like I was robbing the place. I couldn’t believe they let me just walk out with all those books! I had no concept of who was… more
