This is a sort of housecleaning post, where I can update recent and future happenings with me--no earth-shattering announcements here, but news nonetheless. First, I'm happy to announce that I've just joined Codex, a writers group for "pro-level speculative fiction writers in the early stages...

Was following a thread on FB re: Amazon sales rankings. Somebody mentioned that the numbers posted on Barnes & Noble's website are more accurate, as they take store sales into account as well as Internet sales. So, naturally, I headed to bn.com to check things out. After the surprise of...
