Enemy Lines: star-studded prequel

ELbuttonWay, way back in 2010, I wanted to do something special to promote my novel ENEMY LINES. A baker’s dozen of podcast authors provided their talents to bonus-content promos. They did such a great job, the work stands on its own! I invited Jack Kincaid of Edict Zero: FIS to help me knit the promos together. What resulted is a nearly spoiler-free intro to ENEMY LINES, that makes a great prequel to the novels/podcasts.

The prequel features an embedded Wright on Earth reporting back to the ruling council on Galveston about his investigations into Typhon Systemwide, and give the listeners hints about the world of ENEMY LINES that will pay off later in the book… and in future books. Thank you again voice actors, each and every one of you. I’ll round out this post with a list of all the contributors to this ‘very special episode’.

I post it again for your enjoyment, and strongly recommend you check out all the players. All of them have produced extraordinary novels and podcasts: Jack Kincaid , Mark Yoshimoto Nemcoff, Alex White, James Durham, Starla Huchton, Mike Bennett, Jake Bible, Paul Elard Cooley, Seth Harwood, Nathan Lowell, Patrick E McLean, J Daniel Sawyer, Brand Gamblin & S.V. Allie.

John Anealio’s ‘Walk the Fire’ album

pewpewanealioI love art built on others’ art! Doubly so when it’s my work being riffed on. Check out John Anealio’s great new EP of music inspired by my WALK THE FIRE shared world.

I’m not getting any kickback from the sales of this EP, I just think John’s a talented singer and composer, definitely worth a listen or a buy. He’s written many a great geek-flavored song-and he’s included one each for the first and second ‘Walk The Fire’ anthology in this EP, along with some remixes that are pretty fine too!

Patreon: 6 Questions, 3 Creators

Patreon-Logo_smI recently launched my Patreon page to support my writing and help me add to the dozen titles and hundreds of hours of free serial fiction available here on I’ve heard from some of my readers who have not heard of Patreon, or want to know more about crowdfunding.

Why Patreon? It’s a fair question: Patreon has perhaps had greater success supporting musicians than other creators, thus far. So, to answer that question I reached out to three other fiction creators who are also using Patreon: Zach Wienersmith of SMBC-comics, Neil Clarke of Clarkesworld & Epidiah, of Dig a Thousand Holes Publishing.
