Teaser Tuesday: “Spirelli Paranormal Investigations: Episodes 1-3”

So this week I’m reading a short omnibus, Spirelli Paranormal Investigations: Episodes 1-3, by Kate Baray, which — as you may surmise — collects three short novels about the adventures of Jack Spirelli, who, uh, investigates the paranormal.  And he has a sidekick who is a dragon that can take the form of a human woman.  Sounds like one of my characters, no?  So of course I had to read it.

Random Rejection: Jabberwocky Literary Agency, “Dragon Stones”

It’s been a while since I reached into my pile of rejection letters, so I thought I would go ahead and do that again.

Teaser Tuesday 9/8/15: (Still) “The Dragonriders of Pern”

So this week I’m (shocker!) still reading the 800-odd-page long Dragonriders of Pern trilogy — I think I’m somewhere near the beginning of the second book, which begins about seven years after the end of the first one. Thread is still falling, dragons are still (mostly) burning it, and somebody has nice hair.

To Lulu, Or To CreateSpace? That Is The Question.

So as I mentioned previously, I am now in the process of putting together the print editions of Shards and Ravels. It’s been a good six years since I last did a print book (that would be Dragon Stones, of course), and while all of my previous ones were done through Lulu, I thought I might give another service a try this time — namely, CreateSpace.
