Failing, Losing, Faking It, Self-Rejection, Earning Out, and other “Fun” Things About 2019

Failing I haven't done a proper writing update much at all this year, as I'm sure both my loyal readers have noticed. To put a fine point on it, the reason is this: 2019 fucking sucked as a writing year for me. And early, that started to feel like failure.

Can-Con 2018 — Where I’ll Be and the last day for the @BoldStrokeBooks table!

Everyone ready for the last day of Can-Con? What's Can-Con?

It's the Conference on Canadian Content in Speculative Arts and Literature (yeah, it's a mouthful), and it's pretty much magic.

Living the Life — @boldstrokebooks day two in Nottingham

To go shopping. Myself, Jeffrey Ricker, and Christian were standing in a Nottingham Marks & Spencer, and I was asking them to let … Continue reading Living the Life — @boldstrokebooks day two in Nottingham
