COSine rocks!

I’m having a great time at COSine! It’s such a delightful convention with wonderful people. And they have the best name ever. If you’re in the area, come only this weekend.


Workshop for Science Fiction Writers

September 13, 2023

Hello, all. In a couple of hours, I’m doing a talk on how non-scientists can put science in their SF. You don’t need a degree in science! I’ll go over various approaches you can use to base ideas in your work on science even if you know nothing about the scientific topic. Come on over!

This is short notice, but if you register for the conference (it’s free), they will have videos of all the sessions that you can watch at your leisure.

Reading and Review of Undercity

September 3, 2023

Great reading + review of Undercity over at the Bored Goddess reviews. The first half is her excellent reading, followed by her review of the book. She really gets the book. It got five ducks as a rating. 🙂

Pick a Name in my Next Book

March 29, 2023

Hello, readers. I’m in the process of choosing a name for the Skolian sports complex where the Olympic track and field team from the world Raylicon trains. The patrons on my Patreon page made wonderful suggestions, and I set up a poll where people can vote for their favorites (you can choose as many as you like). I’ve removed the paywall on the last two posts about the name so anyone can vote. Please come over and weigh in with your opinion!

In the two posts below, the first is a summary discussion of the names and the second is the poll.

I’m not taking more suggestions for poll names; that was for Patreon members only. However, anyone and everyone can vote, and you are welcome and invited to do so.

The author of whichever name wins gets to have their name as an athlete on the Raylican Olympic track and field name in a future book (not the next one, which is already finished, but the book that comes after that). Or else part of the name of the complex.

If you’d like to subscribe to my Patreon page, keep up on the latest with my books (and life), win free books, and get to participate in these tuckerization possibilities, that would be lovely and thank you. The subscription page is here:

Space is Big Storybundle

March 5, 2023

I’m pleased to say that SFWA picked up one of my books, Primary Inversion, for their Space is Big storybundle. Yay!

Here is the info:

Space is Big – Curated by Michael Mammay and the SFWA

The late, great, Douglas Adams wrote: “Space is big. You just won’t believe how vastly, hugely, mind-bogglingly big it is. I mean, you may think it’s a long way down the road to the chemist’s, but that’s just peanuts to space.” Perhaps the only thing bigger than space itself are the stories that take place within it, and in the latest bundle curated by SFWA, we have 15 great ones for you at one low price. We hope you’ll join us for this entertaining ride between the stars.

For this bundle, the SFWA Independent Authors Committee had the pleasure of sorting through over nearly a hundred excellent submissions! It was tough, but we narrowed our selection down to the ones we thought you’d enjoy the most.

For more info about the books, see

Happy New Year!

May you have a wonderful, satisfying, and joyous New Years.
