Proxima Books has just launched and they're about to publish our science fiction/adventure novel, Aly's Luck. We blog about the cover to our first sf novel -- or, rather, we show the cover they didn't use....

I am finally, about 10 years after the rest of the world, writing a blog about my writing, my day job at Cemetery Dance Publications, my Lonely Road Books publishing ventures, etc.

Today's post is about "My Mother's Secret Stash of Stephen King" -- basically, how I ended up being where I am today!

Here's the link if you're interested:

I blogged about the release of VENTURE UNTAMED! And how the cherry disappeared off the top of my celebratory milkshake. Come share how you celebrated your book's release, or how you dream of celebrating.

I like prophecies in fantasy, but oh boy can authors really screw them up!
