Just got done proof reading parts of The Bloody Empress with my wife.  She enjoyed it and wants to read the rest.  She may be a little biased.  But I don't care.  She's my favorite fan. :)

Repenter is still on track to appear on major ebook retailers in the near future.  I'm still hard at work on the Bloody Empress too.

Also feel free to jump in on the conversation on my facebook page regarding violence in fiction.

Come on feel the noise.  Girls rock your boys.

Got the newly updated copyright in the mail yesterday.  So, things are on track for a fall release.  Woo Hoo!!

Also got the latest part of the Bloody Empress done and am fleshing out parts that need it before moving on to the books third act.

I'm considering releasing a Players of the Game Book 2.5 showing what other major characters that will be introduced in Book 3 were doing in Books 2 and 1.  Ping me on Twitter as @Stelfire to let me know if you'd be interested in such a novel (or possibly novella).

The rain is Spain falls mainly on your brain.

Repenter is getting closer to publication.  Expect sometime in October on e-book format.  Print is still up in the air, but hopefully will occur sometime in 2013.  I'll through out more info as I know it.

I need to be much better about blogging and putting web content out there.  Anyone have any favorite sci fi/fantasy/horror authors who have a good web presence?  Or any bloggers or podcasters in general who love all things super and natural?

Also, I'll be reading at the Ralston Library this coming Sunday sometime between 2 and 5 pm.  It was a fun time last year.  Hope some can make it.

The Bloody Empress is plugging right along.  I hope to have it finished in a few months.  I'll also get more web short story content out there too.

Plugs for others:

  • Check out Paranorman if you're looking for something quirky, creepy, and sweet.  A very well done movie.
  • The new Valiant comic book line is off to a good start.  The new X-O Manowar series is the stand out best in class.
  • I recently discovered Community.  Hilarious.  The stop motion Christmas episode is right up there with the Multiple Santa Tick episode

That's all for now.  Stay so fine.  So fine, you blow my mind.

I'll likely put this info in some place a bit more formal in the compendium tab at some point, but for now I thought I'd share some places on the web that I enjoy over the course of the next few entries:

Screenrant:  My brother turned me on to this site.  It kinda reminds me of the defunct Premiere magazine by way of geek press.  They are an excellent source of all news of geek entertainment, without being over the top about it.

PBS Newshour: Sick of too much opinion and not enough fact with the news corporations?  Try out PBS.  They are largely objective and refreshingly free of the clutter of crawl lines and excessive graphics.  Straight news.  I always look forward to Shields and Brooks's analysis on Fridays.

Gotta fly.  I'll put up more later.
