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!

Meet the new Ghost

If you’ve been following along at home, you know I’ve been on the look out for a single unified look for the Ghost. I’ve found it, more or less :) I found an awesome designer on Deviant Art and after a little discussion and back and forth, the New Ghost was born!

I’m excited! While I’ve loved every version and the artists who created them, it’ll be nice to have a completely my own design ship to show off. I…

Announcing the Denver Writers Slack Group

Twitter and Facebook are… well, equal parts great for community and dumpster fire :) I want to interact with more writers, especially those in Denver. Whether fellow SciFi folks or anyone else that is putting words to paper. Twitter and Facebook are cool, but something more intimate would be better (IMO). Ideally it won’t replace the plethora of social media groups and hashtags, but will provide a less cluttered place for Denver folks to chat amongst ourselves. Whether that’s about Denver book stores, meetups, or the craft is up to us. It’s “invite only” in the sense that you need to reach out to me, and I’ll invite you. I could set it up to let anyone join, but well, see the dumpster fire part up above. All are welcome…
