Anyone who has questions to ask, now is the time. Be it about the Winter Workout, or about anything else publishing, Onyxhawke or my tastes… type now or forever miss your keys. I also have a question: How did you hear about me?

Some of you might remember that I had decided to do this, and then had to put it off back in December. Well, the new date is set, and that date is February 6th. How it works: Everyone who sends me a science fiction, fantasy, or urban fantasy novel between 10pm ET on February 4th, […]

I’ve been reading a lot lately. I’ve blazed through months of slush. Some of which got rejected in the first three or four pages, some which held me until the end but didn’t quite tip the scale to being something I’d pick up. Some of the common problems have been; redundancy, black and white universes, […]

Holy Hell. Someone explain to me how i fell asleep around four and woke up at quarter past seven and can manage to type in that nearly competent way i generally manage. Please, really. I’m not a morning person, i don’t play one on tv and i didn’t even have more than a cup of […]

Fun day today. I had my two panels, the first of which was with GoH Laura Gilman and others. We discussed character creation. Mostly the panel all agreed on the need to make the characters consistent, and true to them selves and avoid painting yourself into a corner. We covered Mary Sue’s, cardboard characters, and […]

I have no idea if half of the people i know in the area are here. At this time of the day I only know that I’m here because my name tag said so. There seem to be less people people here than last year, and it also seems slightly better organized, both are acceptable. […]

I think i forgot to mention that i was going to Arisia in Boston (well technically Cambridge), this weekend. I’ll be on panels Sunday, I may even be able to find the emails telling me which ones… And the Slush has been slashed to no more than about three days work. I suspect at this […]

Normally I leave politics completely aside (a pox on both houses, the executive branch, and the judicial for good measure). But finally there is a candidate i can endorse, and really get behind.click here to see.

A few people I know have just launched a new ezine. They are in need of content, and sponsors. I know all but two of the people involved, you might not yet be getting the same notice as a few of the bigger ezines, but you’ll get attention, and publication. Good luck to those who […]

First, I must apologize. I lied. Others lied and i abetted them. There really is a secret hand shake. Pay attention, take notes, post it above your computer, on you fridge, get it laminated and post it in your shower too. This is the most valuable thing you will ever hear about this or any […]

Slushing!

Sorry for the continued inactivity. In addition to a cold that seemed intent on emptying every tissue box i walked by I’ve been trying to get the existing slush down to a manageable level. I’ve run across some decent stuff, and some stuff thats eh, and the then theres the rest. I’ll be back. Email […]
