Interview – Apocrypha: The Art of Jason Soles

Today, I’m going to give up the spotlight (on my own blog, no less) and shine it on a profoundly talented friend and colleague. I’ve worked with Jason Soles for six years in his role as the lead developer at Privateer Press, and he’s…

First Issue of Red Sun Magazine

My story “Paper Cut” snagged the cover of the first issue of Red Sun Magazine, and the artist, Joas Miller, pretty much nailed the picture in my head. Check it out.

Ranks of the Rejected: Mark Allan Gunnells

Time for another Ranks of the Rejected. This time, I’ve convinced fellow horror and fantasy author Mark Allan Gunnells to reveal the dark, squishy truths about writing and rejection. I first met Mark over on the Shock Totem forums where he was a regular in…

When last I blogged on this hallowed page, Aeryn had invited me to promote my then-current project The Book of Starry Wisdom. I know for a fact a number of Rejectomancy readers backed the Kickstarter, so let me first say thank you! Aeryn and…

May 2016 Submission Statement

May is over, and it was a good month, if not an overly productive one. I spent much of May working on the final edits of my novel Flashpoint, so there wasn’t as much time to submit short stories as I would have liked. In…
