Joining the Alliterates

Today, I am pleased to announce I have joined The Alliterates. This professional group of writers encompasses a range of talented authors from every facet of fiction imaginable. What are we up to?

Let me start with some of the other authors who have gotten back to me before I share some of my news. Matt Forbeck just released his new ’12 for ’12 Kickstarter Dangerous Games, which is a trilogy of thrillers set at GenCon. He also just released Brave New World Revolution.

Dave Gross started as lead writer over at Overhaul Games, where their first project is Baldur’s Gate: Expanded Edition.

Doug Niles is celebrating a nonfiction release called We Were Berliners – From Weimar to the Wall. He was the ghostwriter on the project.

Jeff Grubb hit the New York Times Bestseller’s List with his first Star Wars novel titled Scourge.

Stephen Sullivan has been working on short stories and there’s quite a few of them out including a few collections. The Crimson Collection is his most recent book and Front Harrow #1: Scream Lover will be an upcoming debut.

Bruce Cordell has a new novel coming out in June called Spinner of Lies, too.

My recent news is that Prime Books will be publishing Extreme Zombies. Edited by Paula Guran, the anthology will include “Tomorrow’s Precious Lambs,” a story by yours truly. Of course, I have a new science fiction novella out called Redwing’s Gambit, which is based on the Bulldogs! setting, and a new short story titled “Don’t Ignore Your Dead” which is part of the Don’t Read This Book collection put together by editor Chuck Wendig for the Don’t Rest Your Head RPG. We just got on the Stoker reading list, too! I’ll have a few more announcements as the summer goes on, but that’s about it for now.

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.
