See You at Mile High Con 51!

This is officially my first public thing as a writer! A panel at MileHighCon 51 I’m on a panel Saturday (the 19th) at 7pm. It’s about Self publishing and platforms like KDP, Createspace and Ingram Spark. Should be fun! I applied for a spot in author’s Alley but alas was not selected so if you want to get a signed copy of Space Rogues you’ll have to literally walk up to me and ask. I’ll try to have a backpack full of them :)   I’ll be honest I’ve never been to MileHighCon before, but that’s more oversight than anything else. I’ve never been a crowds person, so conventions are rarely my scene. Of course now I’ve selected yet another occupation where I don’t get to hide in a cave…

A Tale of Two Covers

So, last week I posted the first take on the cover for Space Rogues 5: So This is Earth? (I hadn’t settled on the subtitle yet, but I like this one). I also sent that cover to my newsletter (You’re on it right? Lots of fun and perks there!) As folks began chiming in with their thoughts I started tinkering on a cover that’s more thematically similar to the rest of the series. It’s below next to the first pass at a cover.                         So I’m curious now (I know, I just asked) about which you prefer? I actually feel more drawn to cover two. Like I said, It’s thematically in line with the series (the Ghost in space/over…

Want to see the cover of Space Rogues 4?

Even if you don’t, you’re here, so….. If you’ve been paying attention, the original working subtitle was “The Horror Story Job.” Turns out, it’s not as “horror-y as I thought, plus I realized I might be hemming myself in with titles if I started doing “the ____ Job” type subtitles. Plus I realized I like quippy-er more fun subtitles, so here we are, Space Rogues 4: Stay Warm, Don’t Die. Coming Soon.

My City Trees Aren’t Dead!

I’m a big fan of growing things. The act and the things themselves. Last year I applied for free trees from the city of Denver. They have a program where they’ll come and plant a tree in a public right of way in front of your house. For whatever reason, the tree lawn in front of our new house had no trees. Part of the reason for the program is that Denver has a LOT of ash trees and it’s likely the emerald ash borer will eventually destroy them. I applied, I was approved, for TWO trees! I was assigned two bur oak trees. They planted them in September, like ninjas! I was home, never heard them arrive. At any rate, I had the trees. The compact you agree to…
