There is a great interview with me (and not only because it’s with me!) on Castles In The Air: Author Quinn Cullen’s Scribbles:
A great blog from author Tim Baker about thinking big while thinking small. Or maybe it just mentions me by name…
It’s not really a challenge but it sounds cooler in the title, right?
I’ve been contracted for not one… not two… but three! Count ’em, three! new stories to write. I can’t tell you the details and can’t really tell you much more (what a damn tease I am), but I can say they are going to be two 14,000 word and a 40,000 word novella.

Wish me luck!
The downside to getting it is the back-burner status of all the other projects I was working on, like Dying Days 3, Dying Days: Origins, the next two stories in the Keyport Cthulhu series, and another hundred things.
But I’ll eventually get to them, and get in a few pages here and there when I have time.
Until then… don’t expect a ton of Mando on social media, since I need to really buckle down and write, write, write…

You feel horror when John McClane sees he’s got to cross over a floor of broken glass in his bare feet. We feel the fear of Harry and Sally, a fear that they’re going to ruin what they have by getting too close or by not getting too close, a fear that’s multiplied by knowing you’re growing older and have nobody to love you.
