Happy Ada Lovelace Day!

It’s Ada Lovelace Day, named after the mother of computers, Augusta Ada King, Countess of Lovelace. And just for the occasion (not really, it was a complete coincidence), I’ve just finished the first draft of my post-post-apocalyptic novel, Ada’s Children.

New Fiction and Other Updates

Hi there! Long time no see! I’ve neglected my website while I’ve been figuring out what to write next after Daring and Decorum. It was a very long fallow period for writing, but I kept busy volunteering for the successful anti-gerrymandering effort in Michigan. Then my wife and I moved from East Lansing to Tucson for her […]

Rejoice and Resist

Rejoice and Resist is live today! This new holiday collection from The Final Draft Tavern includes my story, “The Highwayman Takes an Office,” and six others. I hope you’ll check it out. (That’s an Amazon link, but you can get it at all the other ebook retailers, and a print version is coming soon.) What will you find […]

Rejoice and Resist – a Holiday Box Set for Repressive Times

I’m pleased that a new novelette featuring my highwayman will appear in Rejoice and Resist, the upcoming holiday box set from the Final Draft Tavern. The story is titled “The Highwayman Takes an Office,” and takes place four months before the beginning of Daring and Decorum. If you’ve read the novel, you’ll remember Robin mentioning vague reasons for decamping […]

Daring and Decorum: Release Day and Acknowledgments

It’s release day for Daring and Decorum, so I thought I’d share an expanded version of the Acknowledgments. Here are the acknowledgments as they appear in the novel. Thanks to everyone who helped bring my novel to the world! My first debt goes to all the writers who inspired me, Ellen Kushner chief among them. Privilege […]

Blog Tour Update

The blog tour for Daring and Decorum is going well, and a couple of new dates have been added. Here’s what’s new and upcoming: Tomorrow, 7/28, I’ll be part of Mari Christie’s Facebook release party for her new Civil War novel, Blind Tribute. The event lasts from 5-9 p.m. ET, and features several authors of historical fiction, […]

Spotlight: Blind Tribute by Mari Anne Christie

It’s a pleasure to welcome Mari Christie to the website today. Blind Tribute, her Civil War novel about a journalist of extraordinary principle, is due out July 28. The timing is impeccable, as today’s journalists face nearly as many death threats as her protagonist, and over some of the same festering issues. Below you’ll find an intriguing […]

Daring and Decorum Blog Tour

Daring and Decorum will be featured on several blogs and websites over the coming weeks, ramping up to its release on August 1. Mostly this is bonus material, like letters characters never sent, character interviews, and more. This is my first blog tour, so I’m just dipping my toe in the water — some writers do […]

Book Review: Artemis

I got to know Jessica Cale after reading her wonderful highwayman novel, Tyburn, set in 17th-century London. She’s moved into the Regency era with Artemis, a novella that was previously part of the Holly and Hopeful Hearts box set from the Bluestocking Belles. This one doesn’t deal with highwaymen, but it does feature a few interests we have in common. Here’s the […]

It’s not up on Amazon.com yet, but will be soon. (Come on, give BN or your local bookshop some love!) It will […]
