And I swear, I can't ever hear it without it breaking my heart a little bit. I knew including The Parting Glass in my third book would break my heart every single time I hear it, but I'm a nostalgia addict, I guess. It brings me back to Galway and Oranmore, and the last time I was really happy. I'm fairly certain...

Finished up my review of the proof of Book 3 tonight. I'm really proud of this one. I also apparently used a few words way too often, so there's some cleanup to do, but story-wise, I'm feeling really good about it.

Here's where it starts to get real... Book 3 of my superhero series the Indestructibles is up for Kindle pre-orders, which is the moment when everything starts to come together (all the other formats all start to fall around that date the next few days). I think this might be the best book in the series.

It's definitely my favorite cover so far:

And I'm pretty psyched about it. One of my great regrets from Book 2 was being talked into a title I didn't want. This time I stood my ground and got the title I wanted. And so it's going to be:

The Entropy of Everything.

Keep an eye on The Indestructibles site for more details soon!

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.
