As a unique companion to my forthcoming steampunk “Canterbury Tales,” CLOCKWORK LIVES—co-created with Rush drummer and lyricist Neil Peart—ECW Press has released a limited-edition set of Tarot cards. Each of the 13 cards contains a line illustration of one of the Clockwork Lives characters by Nick Robles, the artist who did such a fabulous job on our CLOCKWORK ANGELS graphic novel. Only 300 sets of cards exist (I know, because I have them all right here in a box!). I will be selling them at the Hard Rock Cafe in Denver this Thursday night (two days before the Denver Rush concert!) and also at Rushcon in LA at the end of the month. For those of you who can't make either of those appearances, though, I am making the card sets available for $15 each, plus postage. The following links are for US orders, Canada/Mexico, and International. Limit of 3 per person, and when they're gone, they're gone. US orders $15 + $2.50 postageCanada/Mexico $15 + $4 postageInternational $15 + $8 postage “All this time we're shuffling and laying out all our cards” The Alchemy Miner, the Astronomer, the Bookseller, the Fisherman, the Fortune-Teller, the Inventor, the Percussor, the Sea Captain, the [...]

Every time I tell someone the main idea behind One Horn to Rule Them All, “A Purple Unicorn anthology,” they all get this odd look in their eyes. And I know exactly what they're thinking. “Purple unicorns? Really?” And then they get that same glint of, “Neat!” When Rebecca and I teach writing classes, Purple unicorns were our way of telling other writers that they need to bring their A-game to the story, no matter what the subject is, no matter how silly the idea might sound. And when we invited a bevy of Superstars Writing Seminar alumni to submit stories all involving purple unicorns, they all brought their A-game! Every single story in this book features a purple unicorn in same shape or fashion, from literal beasts to graffiti and beyond. The best part? Every sale of this book goes toward funding scholarships for future Superstars Writing Seminar attendees, helping our community of all-star writers grow and support itself. When you bring this many talented people together in a single volume, rest assured the creativity is going to astound you. Edited by Lisa Mangum, this anthology is as unique as it gets. Not only are you able to enjoy the tales themselves, [...]

Today my heart is too heavy to do any writing. Goodbye Linus, my dear friend for fifteen years. Owen Hardy, and the readers of Clockwork Angels, got a brief chance to meet Linus in the quiet town of Barrel Arbor. I hope that's where he's gone now. “He remembered a plump, orange cat that had frequented the Paquettes' newsgraph offices. The lazy cat curled up in any patch of sun, sleeping away the day, content with its sluggish dreams. Everything had its place, and every place had its thing.” Now my place no longer has its Linus. [...]

My second published novel Gamearth is a fast-paced and fun story that takes place inside and out of a Dungeons & Dragons style role-playing game, where a group of players have grown tired of their game and decide to shut it down…which is tantamount to a declaration of war against the characters inside the game—who then need to go on a quest to save their own world from falling apart (complete with dragons, magic swords, ogres…just what you'd expect). The entire Gamearth trilogy is available in print and eBook format, as well as a large omnibus edition from WordFire Press. When I was in college, I used to play D&D every Sunday night with a group of friends, including award-winning SF author Kristine Kathryn Rusch (of course, at the time, neither of us were published authors!). Kris used a lot of those gaming experiences in her first novel, The White Mists of Power, just as I used them in Gamearth. Gamearth is also one of 13 Fantasy titles that are currently featured in the Truly Epic Fantasy Storybundle at http://storybundle.com. You can get ALL those books for $15…but it runs for only one more week. [...]
