Rough Work at the Crossroads...

Whew! The rough draft of Zombieslayer is done. 112,600 words, and most of them abysmal, but at least I’ve got something to work with now. Right. After a short break to rinse out my brain, I’m going to plunge back in and try to make it all mean something.

Wish me luck.

Interview with a Vampire.... author

In a couple of weeks I’m going to be doing another promo video for the Black Library. This one will be about Bloodborn, my upcoming Gotrek and Felix spin-off novel about Ulrika the Vampire, and this time I thought I’d do a little Q+A. So, if you have any questions about Bloodborn, Ulrika, my other Warhammer books, or what I think about vampires who sparkle, reply here and I will compile them and do my best to answer them. I think Black Library is going to be collecting questions on their FB page too, so hopefully there will be a bunch when we get them all together.

Nice cover, huh?

Gotrek and Felix get snowed in!


I just got a preview copy of Death and Dishonour, my latest book from Black Library. I didn’t write the whole thing – it’s an anthology of sword and sorcery stories set in the Warhammer world, but I do have the honour of leading it off with a tale of Gotrek and Felix entitled Red Snow, in which the poet and the slayer find themselves trapped in a blizzard in the Mountains of Mourn.

Here, check out the cover, and click here to go to Amazon if you want to pre-order.


Happy New Year!

I posted this last year on the first day of the year, and I guess I’ll keep up that tradition until it comes true. This is the Zombies, singing one of my favorite songs, “This Will Be Our Year.”


Scrappy Old Year!

It wasn't the best of times. It wasn't the worst of times. It was just times.

On the plus side, in 2009 I completed three novels, including a stand-alone personal one, am almost half-way done on a fourth, and the kids TV show I was head writer for debuted and played all year. I made my living entirely from writing, I was an invited guest at a sci-fi convention for the first time, I had a great time with family and friends, got to travel a bit, met some very cool people, and started this fancy new website.

On the nonplussed side, the TV show was canceled at episode 38 out of 40, it wasn't much of a living, next year looks to be another lean one, and I am still not yet married to Tilda Swinton.

So, as you can see, far more positives than negatives. Indeed, were it not for the old bank balance, I would have said it was a great year. The old saying about money not buying happiness is indeed true, but I do believe that a little bit socked away can to a certain extent ease one's anxieties.

Here's to a less anxious new year!

Your logo sucks!

(So let me fix it.)

Well, I'm broke, so it's time to go back to my old gig. If you need any Graphic design work done, or know anybody who does, have a look at my stuff. If I do the sort of thing you like, drop me a line and we'll talk about prices.

Kamen Rider Untimely Demise


Okay, I thought this might be just a rumor, but my boss, Steve Wang, just confirmed it. The CW Network is dropping KAMEN RIDER DRAGON KNIGHT, the series I was head writer on, without showing the last two episodes of the 40-episode story arc! Please sign this petition to get the end of the story on the air. Thanks!
