Fang (And I) Need Your Help

Dear Readers of Extraordinary Calibre:

If the “Have Blaster, Will Travel” Kickstarter reaches its next stretch goal of $3,000 by Sunday, April 29th, you will receive three new science fiction stories in this anthology. Not only am I one of the authors included in that new goal, but you’ll also get a story *just* about Fang, the psychotic teddy bear featured in the novella Redwing’s Gambit.

I believe in this setting, the publisher, and the talented authors involved. But more than that, this is my opportunity to write a character fans like and design a plot you’ll enjoy. To me, that’s “the” reason why I write.

I hope you’ll support this collection of stories and beg your forgiveness if this went too far into Self-Promotion Land, but there are days when I ache for the cheers of my readers. This character is one of my favorites and I’d hate to see him die a horrible, untimely death.

Want to Interview or Hire Me? Send Fan Mail?

Would you like to hire me? Because my projects and manuscripts are in flux, I am always open to discussing new opportunities with publishers and studios. As a full-time writer, I spend a portion of my time seeking new gigs–so don’t be afraid to reach out. If you’re interested, please e-mail me via my Contact Page. I typically reply to work-related e-mails within one-to-two business days.

Want an interview? If you’d like to interview me or request a guest blog post, please connect with me via the contact page, too. Due to time constraints and other communicative concerns, I typically don’t follow up on requests via social media.

Keen on sending fan mail? I am also happy to engage with readers and fans. Please note that I am unable to reply satisfactorily to certain types of queries related to the companies I work for due to the agreements I typically sign. If you have a question about a TV show or a line of books, the best way to get your answer is to contact the studio or publisher directly.
