i write. i make up stuff. i adventure hard, so you don’t have to.

Pulling up the Drawbridge

My writing schedule has always been full (some might say overloaded).  Same for my travel and promotion schedule.  I’m currently writing a 1000-page novel manuscript for The Dark Between the Stars, editing Mentats of Dune, and plotting my next three Dan Shamble, Zombie PI novels, as well as a couple of short stories I’ve promised to do. I had three novels released in September. In 2012 I took 21 business trips, many of them cons, and I did an 8-city book tour for Sisterhood of Dune.  Next year will be much the same.

My attempts to clone myself have failed, as have my experiments to develop a temporal inverter that will add more hours to the day.  And so, after much consideration, I’ve had to take extreme measures.

Sadly, I can no longer read and critique manuscripts sent to me by aspiring writers, nor can I review advance copies of novels for possible cover blurbs.  And I respectfully have to decline contributing short stories for anthologies.

Thanks for understanding.  Time to focus on the novel writing.
