New Publication Date for The Fiend and the Forge

| Comments

Ah yes…delays, delays. By now, you may have heard that the publication date for The Fiend and the Forge has been pushed back to September 2010. I know that’s disappointing for some and I wanted to use this forum to explain why it’s happening and why it isn’t such a bad thing. The reason for the delay is fairly straightforward. […]

On Vyes

| Comments

Off to the Big Apple

| Comments

I’m heading off to New York later this week to catch up with old friends, have lunch with my editor, and escape the cold of a San Francisco summer.
