I’m writing this on April 2nd (aka, Doctoral Day) but as I’m waiting on a couple links, I don’t expect to actually post this for several days. But lots of cool things (as relates to me and my writing) are happening this month and it seemed like a good plan to set up this page with all the relevant information in one place, so here we are.


Beginning on April 11th, I’ll begin crowdfunding a new collection, Transcendent Boston and other stories. It’s a very modest Kickstarter with a base funding goal of only $1000 (though if you want to push me to just under $42 million I suppose I’d be okay with it. There’s a variety of support levels and some nice stretch goals too. I especially like stretch goals because every supporter wins without having to spend any more money.

Many of the stories earmarked for the collection have previously appeared in specialty or share-world anthologies, and as such are now out of print. So the idea here is to take advantage of one of the perks of indie publishing and save these tales from oblivion.

Anyway, please check it out. That link leads to a place holder to tell you about the campaign and will allow you to ask to be notified when it goes live. One way or another, the book will come out in June. A successful campaign ensures there’ll be a trade paperback as well.


Next up, beginning on April 13th and running for three weeks, I’ll be included in the “Celestial Sagas” Story Bundle, which is a fancy way of saying Space Opera. My novel Slice of Entropy (book one of the Pizza in Space series) will be part of an assortment of books which you can pick up for one low price, and you get to set that price! Here’s the link for that.


But the big event for me this month is the release on April 26th of Soul Bottles, Book One of the Demon Codex series that I wrote with Brian Thorne. Long time readers will recognize my protagonist, a professor of demonic languages, from the short story “Fries With That” (available in my collection Sweet Potato Pie and other stories.

Books two and three will follow over the next two months, and it’s only fair to warn you you that Brian and I are working on several more books. Right now, Amazon has Book One available for preorder, but feel free to lock it in now while you’re thinking about it.
