The Omai Gods: the story behind the story

steampunk world

One of my favorite and oft-quoted bits of writerly advice comes from novelist/filmmaker Nicholas Meyer: “Art thrives on restriction.” Meaning that if you don’t have enough of something–usually money and/or time–you’re forced to compensate by being creative.

I understand the purpose of those descriptive blurbs: to tell … Read More

International Eddie

Das Schwert des Koenigs

Here’s the German cover art for The Sword-Edged Blonde; the title translates as The King’s Sword, which is a reasonably accurate alternate title (and definitely looks cool in German).  Available in Germany April 9! This actually does look a lot like I envisioned the younger Eddie from the flashback scenes.  And here’s an exclusive tidbit you’ll only find here: Young Eddie … Read More
