A Big Announcement

I can finally, happily announce that we sold my novel PLANETSIDE and a second book to David Pomerico at Harper Voyager. It is tentatively set for release in summer of 2018. PLANETSIDE is the story of a decorated war veteran who flies to a distant planet to take care of a routine investigation, only to find himself enmeshed...

Book Release: THE ISLAND DECEPTION

I don’t do a lot of book releases on my blog. In fact, I don’t think I’ve done any. But this book is special. First off, the author, Dan Koboldt, was my Pitch Wars mentor when I was a contestant in 2015, and then my co-mentor this past year and again this coming year. You...

Preparing Your Twitter Pitch

#PraPit, a twitter pitch practice session, is happening on November 29th from 9 AM to 9 PM Eastern. You can read about it here. In order to help you get ready, I thought I’d offer some resources. And since there’s nothing new about this, and because…well…I’m not very good at it, I’ve simply gone and...

Practice Your Pitch

It’s almost December, and you know what that means. Twitter Pitch season. What? That’s not what you were expecting? If you don’t know what I’m talking about, let me give you some links to check out, then come on back. #Pitmad is coming up on December 1st. You can read about it on Brenda Drake’s...

What to Do If You Don’t Get Selected for Pitch Wars

I’ve got some bad news for you, Pitch Wars hopefuls. Most of you aren’t getting in. No offense intended…it’s just a numbers thing. Dan and I received 141 entries. We get to choose one. You don’t have to be a math whiz to figure out your odds. Overall less than 10% of entrants will get in. So...

Pitch Wars Questions and Answers

Hi there. I figured I’d answer some common questions here so I don’t clog up the Twitter feed. Plus, some people aren’t comfortable actually asking the questions, so hopefully I answer some that went unsaid. These are my answers. If you want Dan’s, he’s very open to you asking. In some cases, where I know...

Meet the Bonus Coaches

Hello again. First off, if you haven’t read the latest updates on the contest to get free extra entries into Pitch Wars, read them here. If you have read them, you know that I said we’d be adding bonus coaches. So without further ado, let’s meet them. Bonus Coach #1: Rebecca Enzor. Rebecca is my...

Pokemon, The Robot Apocalypse, and You

I know what you’re thinking. Another post by some old dude who wants to decry Pokemon as the end of the world. Not at all. I’m all for it. And so are our future robot overlords. If those future robotic rulers are watching (and they are) I just want to be on the record here. This isn’t...

Welcome To My Blog

I’m a little late to the whole blog game. But I figured, hey, it’s 2006, so I should definitely get on this. What’s that? 2016? Well this is embarrassing. I really don’t have a good reason for not making a website earlier. I guess I just didn’t have that much to say. I’ll pause now...
