Anyone going to be hanging around Newbury Street on Wednesday, July 8? I'll be at Trident Booksellers talking about the Indestructibles and small press publishing alongside a few other authors. Should be a a good time.

I found myself having this conversation first thing this morning over an email from a company that shall remain nameless:

Subject line: Dear customer, we've acquired [this company!]
Internal message: We've joined forces with [this company] to bring you...
Me: Let's talk basic English here. Acquired and joined forces are not the same thing. Joined forces is what the Avengers did at...

So I shot a wedding yesterday. The photography work is really secondary these days--the Indestructibles takes priority in all things--but with Book 3 with the publisher for editing I've got the time to do a bit of photo work and I decided to agree to do a wedding.

First off: Jaysus is a wedding a lot of work.

But secondly, shooting a wedding...

Getting the first few comments in about the early draft of The Indestructibles Book 3. Someone said the book is "important." I knew that dealing with time travel would, for me, be less about action and more about consequence, but I didn't realize how much the way the book deals with mortality and regret would resonate. I hope this is a good sign that...

Things can be going well--book sales are fine, got a photography gig this weekend, things are starting to turn around a bit--and yet it's so easy to find yourself suddenly and profoundly lonely.

This last book broke my heart a bit. It's about time travel, and to me time travel stories are about regret, because you see the impact of your mistakes and...

Saw a lot of people posting this and I feel irresistibly compelled to play along. If I genie granted me three wishes?

1. For the Indestructibles to do well enough as a book series that I could write full time. I mean I could wish for fame, or that movie career I always wanted, but rather than be greedy, I'd just like to be...

And now onto the editing process. I can't brag about how fast this one turned around. Full six months of writing time. But in my defense, it's the time travel story arc for the Indestructibles. Time travel is hard.

The Parting Glass is a hell of a song to work into a book about time travel and how you can't really fix anything in the end, you can only make it different.

God this stuff makes me miss my old home. Some day I'll disappear to Ireland again and never come back. Should have never left in the first place.

So my publisher is giving away "The Soloist," a prequel to my novel "The Indestructibles" this weekend. If you like superheroes, dancers who become badass vigilantes, or just free ebooks, check it out! And if you like it, spread the word!

I'd love to do a giveaway of the paperback some day on SuicideGirls, but I can't figure out the best way. If...

Stay tuned for details if you like free superhero stories, particularly about ballet dancers who become vigilantes...

Made it into the book tonight. Either I'm writing in an altered state again or I'm just getting loopy.

Has to be loopy. I couldn't explain the second law of black holes drunk.

So apparently today was National Superhero Day. How did I not know this? How? I do this for a living.

If you feel like giving a little love to my book in honor of National Superhero Day though, it can be found here.

Also, if anyone on here, Suicide Girl or journalist or pop culture bloggers, ever want to run a giveaway on your page...
