The Assassin Comes

I’m a smart guy, so there had to be an ulterior motive for me to have two installments of The Fanged Circle available for free. And there is:

My plan was to remind the world that The Fanged Circle: The Knight and The Witch are both available for free. Then I read about a number of Hugo Awards going to “No Award” this year.

A Dark Scheme

A while back, I promised to make installments of The Fanged Circle available when a new entry was about to appear.

Things haven’t gone entirely as I would like them, so I’m at a point where I only have a few days left in the initial KDP cycle for The Knight. That’s why I’m making use of Amazon’s exclusive benefit three days next week.

Years ago, I watched Kia Asamiya’s Silent Mobius with my best friend, Dan. It’s a fun series–team of women using magic, tech, and mysticism to stop monstrous invaders. What’s not to like?

Some Local Fun

A few weeks ago, I had a chance to talk with some of the guys at my local comics and gaming shop. Casual conversation is a normal thing, but this particular talk was all business.

An Author’s Name

Five years ago, I went to a Dragon Con panel featuring David B. Coe. Upon introducing himself, mentioned that having a pseudonym wasn’t as bad as most writers might fear it could be. I was instantly curious about what he was referring to, since it had to be connected to an upcoming project.

Before another year had passed, The Thieftaker Chronicles had begun. The series is listed under the author D.B. Jackson, which is the pseudonym David uses for his historical urban fantasy. As I learned more about the first novel, Thieftaker, I kept thinking, “Wow, what a great idea for a story!” For me, that turned out to be a doorway to reading more books.

I said I would offer The Fanged Circle: The Knight for free. Today, I deliver. For this initial free offering, Jacob’s tale will be available June 29-30, 2015.

Speed of Reading

I wrote recently about how fast some of my friends can read. I’m jealous of them and their speed reading.

This post isn’t about that.

I’ve noticed that some books read at different rates than others. I’m going to highlight a few choice examples, just to illustrate this further. View full article »

Thank Your Network

You may have seen an actual picture of me. There’s one that I use a lot because it looks good, looks like me, and it features a smile.
