With the release of One Tin Soldier just five days away, I thought it would be fun to once again share some quick, mainly ridiculous, stats about the book. All numbers provided here represent my best guesses after a less-than-careful review of the manuscript, and I reserve the right to be proven utterly incorrect by…
The last two days passed in a blur. Holding Tessa. Meditating out on the bench overlooking the Pacific. Eating the cupcakes Winter had made for Silt, Supersonic, and me, as if we were headed to our own funerals, already lost forever in the wind-stricken plains of the Badlands.
We had a week to get things together before Mammoth and the Mission left town. I spent most of it with Tessa, of course, each of us coming to grips with the reality that the next time we saw each other would be damn near Christmas.

According to the almighty Google, the mid-point of the year is July 2nd. Which… was apparently four weeks ago? Huh. Weird. I guess that makes this a very late mid-year review. As I like to do every year, I’m checking in to see what progress I’ve made on my writing goals. I also want to…
I am thrilled to announce that Ghost of a Chance, the next book in my comedic urban fantasy series, The Many Travails of John Smith, is now available! Release days are kind of like birthdays, except you sometimes get to have more than one of them a year… and there’s almost never any cake.
People seemed to enjoy getting an early peek at the chapter subtitles for Blood is Thicker Than Lots of Stuff, so I thought it would be fun to do the same with Ghost of a Chance. Never fear; there are very few spoilers and most will only make sense after you’ve read the relevant chapter….
