Of Mettle & Magic Preorder Exclusive
Monday, April 5, 2021

I'm giving away a special thank you gift to readers who preorder Of Mettle & Magic!

Since physical author signings and book launch parties are still a no-no until the COVID vaccine is widely distributed, I wanted to offer something that could be sent out to readers. I racked my brain to come up with something that would be practical, fun, and connect in some way to the book. What I came up with was this two-part gift.

A New Place to Connect
Thursday, March 11, 2021

I've been brainstorming ideas for new ways to connect with my audience in a more informal and organic way than just typing posts and sending them out into the world. So let's try this: I've created a reader's group on Facebook, the idea being that people interested in the Magicsmith books, urban fantasy in general, and similar topics can post openly in an informal setting to share their opinions, questions, recommendations, and enthusiasm. For my part, I'll be posting daily snippets from whatever I'm working on, as well as smaller / more random posts that I wouldn't necessarily publish to sites like this blog or my official author page. So if you want to get to know me better and connect with other awesome people:

Game Review: Stuffed Fables
Monday, February 15, 2021

  I bought this game for my daughter this past Christmas. As of writing this review, we've played it twice--once with three players, once with four--and everyone had a great time.  

  Basically, the players take on the roles of stuffed animals that belong to a little girl. The first night the girl sleeps in her new "big girl" bed, a horde of creepy mechanical minions come out of an eerie glow under the bed to steal her toys. The little girl's baby blanket is taken, and the player's stuffy characters are dragged into an adventure to get it back and return to their sleeping charge.

Review: Save the Cat! Writes a Novel
Thursday, February 4, 2021

Save the Cat! Writes a NovelSave the Cat! Writes a Novel by Jessica Brody
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

This is one of the best books on the craft of writing I've ever read!

Save the Cat! Writes a Novel is not only filled with useful, insightful, and actionable analysis on the structure of successful stories, but it's easy to read, which is a huge plus for an informational book.
Even if you are a "pantser" and shudder at the thought of outlining, I recommend you read the beat sheet breakdown and genre explanations so that the information can percolate in your subconscious. I have no doubt that reading this book will make me a better writer.
