Geeks of a Certain Age

Howdy folks! Believe it or not, I do blog…just infrequently. Today I’m writing about an exciting new adventure I’m embarking on with my brother-from-another-mother, Hank Garner.

A Bit of Apocalypse Weird: Ironheart

So, I’m a little over 75 percent through drafting Ironheart, my sequel to The Serenity Strain. I’ve really enjoyed writing this novel, and I wanted to share a little snippet with you.

What Exactly Is a Launch Party?

On November 21, I and my fellow authors of Tales from Pennsylvania—a short story anthology set in Michael Bunker’s world of PENNSYLVANIA—are hosting a launch party for the collection. I’ve invited a lot of my Facebook friends, many of whom aren’t in the independent publishing world, per se. So some of them have asked: “What, […]

As I was wracking my brain for what to write about today, I remembered that a number of reviewers of both Gettysburg: A Tale of the Second Pennsylvania War for Independence and Susquehanna: A Second Tale of Bestimmung Company […]
