Super Excited!I have a new computer! I'm going to write a blog post about the process of putting this sucker together, it wasn't all shiny happy fun-fun-fun. But for now, it is ALIVE and I have begun the holy-crap-it-takes-forever process of getting all the programs going again, not to mention reinstalling five zillion Daz products. Yuck. That should take about half a lifetime. But it will happen, and then guess what? I'll be able to render stuff again without blowing up my computer! Yay! Look out, world, this kitten is coming back!
Release Day!Well, it's finally here! Monday, 8/13, otherwise known as release day for my new novel FIRESTORM. Thanks to vwrangler for pointing out the flaws, and thanks to everyone who commented on the cover in progress. May you all continue to be willing to kick me right in the ego, so I can improve as a writer and an artist.Life is fire. The fire of passion and the fire of loss. Beautiful fire... and ugly fire. The fire of shame burning through a soul gone astray. And the fire wielded by the hand of a mage.Kai and Jericho have controlled the Eternal Empire for several years, now. For Jericho, life couldn't be better. He has a home, and he has the constant companionship of the man he loves. But Kai wants more. He longs for the excitement of adventure, the challenge of making a difference.Nobody saw the firestorm on the horizon. From stability, insanity. Powerful change is coming fast. Can Kai and Jericho survive it?
Number One!So I almost forgot to mention here my ebook Eternal is currently on sale for FREE over at Amazon, to make sure everyone's ready for the sequel Firestorm to come out next week. And thanks to that sale generating a bit of excitement, Eternal's bounced back up to Number One in LGBT sci-fi. Woohoo!So there you have it, my bestseller available for free until Saturday. And just 'cause it makes me feel good, check out the screenshot I took last night. It's not changed much this morning, except for going up even higher in the Kindle Store ranking.
Vote for me?Holy crap! I never figured this would happen, because the thumbnail is freakin' dark and hard to see. But amazingly my image "Dark Brotherhood" has made it into the DAZaholics FINAL POLL for the Dark Brotherhood contest. So please, if you like the image or even just feel kind and generous today, stop by the poll and give me a vote!Dark Brotherhood Poll

Going away for a while.Some of you have noticed I get sick a lot. Well, yesterday I landed in the emergency room, and then the hospital. I'm going to have surgery tomorrow, and they'll fix me so I don't get sick like that anymore. I'll have several weeks off work, but I imagine I'll feel pretty lousy for a while. But I'll be back!
Daz FreebiesHey, I don't know if any of you have been watching the every four hour freebie thing Daz has going now, but this current batch is really good. There's even a couple pro bundles, V7 and Teen Josie 7, and a bunch of other cool stuff. (I got the HFS Fantasy Shapes Bundle, woohoo!) So if you see this in time, go get a freebie!
For the Entertainment of Real 3D ArtistsI messed around with dForce today, with varying degrees of luck. I wrote up the result in a blog post. If you want a laugh, here it is.The agony of dForce
Grumpy, need to vent.It really, really, REALLY sucks when a person is so in love with his own ideas that he is physically incapable of understanding an argument that contradicts those ideas. Why the hell do I ever even bother speaking to people like that, anyway? Oh, yeah. That's right. I live with this one.AAARRRGGGHHHH!!!Okay, just had to blow off a bit of steam in a public way, or that was going to keep me up all night bitching to myself. I feel better now. Goodnight!
