The B. Stiff Flies from One Victory to the Next (Life of Privilege Continues)

Thought I’d send a smoke signal to let you guys know I’m still alive!
I’ve finished the first two books in my new Voivod series. It’s a historically accurate (but fictionalized) account of the life of Vlad the Impaler, the real-life Dracula. It has nothing to do with vampires or pasty fashionistas, and everything to do with medieval warfare and one man’s struggle against the Islamic slave trade in medieval Eastern Europe. I’m working on the third book in the four-book series, which is called Forest of Spears. It’s dynamite! The first two books are already available in hard copy, so there’s no reason to be jealous of the rich kids with their fancy e-readers.

I’d like to write some more historical fiction later, but first, I fully intend to finish Demonworld after Voivod. That’s right! Demonword books seven, eight, nine, and ten are going to launch one after the other, BAM BAM BAM, like a literary machinegun tearing apart everything in its sights.

I’m also writing for a few video games. I had an unexpected insight the other day that if a creator doesn’t keep a full plate, then depression comes as a natural consequence. A creator has to keep his to-do list so full that it becomes overwhelming. I don’t think the tricks we use to make our minds go quiet and harness our will are necessarily fool-proof; humans are born to do things, and creators especially are born to make things. So I’m pushing myself to do more and create more. Depression will be the first casualty in this sort of violent engagement with the enemy, but that’s a casualty that I’m willing to accept!

In closing, if I could leave everyone with a piece of advice regarding time management and achieving goals, I can only say that if you’re on a bunch of drugs and you accidentally run over someone, you should keep driving as if nothing has happened. That usually works for me!

Demonworld Six Murders Readers’ Faces!

… and it’s using my worn-out body as a flail!

Hey everyone, Demonworld Book Six is now available at Amazon! It’s already gotten some great reviews; thank you, readers! It’s really nice to know that people are willing to give their time and attention to Wodan and his strange journey. It’s also good to know that you guys are enjoying the turns the story has taken. I was afraid people might think this installment of Demonworld was just too weird. But when you’re in a post-apocalyptic holy land contending with wasteland gods, weird is the norm.
