Operation: Montauk Release Schedule


The first print run of Operation: Montauk has arrived and the pre-orders will be shipping out over the weekend. (It's not too late to still pre-order.)

From Friday, May 25 through Sunday the 27, I'll have a table at CONduit in Salt Lake City. It's being held at the Radisson downtown on 215 S. West Temple. The special guest is Tim Russ, who played Tuvok on Star Trek Voyager.

I'll be appearing on at least three panels:

Saturday: 10am - Web Based TV productions
Sunday: 10am - Getting Your Stuff Published
Sunday: 12pm - Starship Troopers: Fascism vs. Socialism in SF/F

I might or might not have a copy of Operation: Montauk on me for the first person who asks to get one.

Then next week, May 30-June 3, I will be off to Origins Game Fair in Columbus, Ohio for the official premiere of Operation: Montauk. I'll have a table at The Library and will be on quite a few panels. You can check their website for the details.

As soon as I get back, I'll will be launching the official Salt Lake City premiere of Operation: Montauk at The King's English Bookshop. It's June 8th at 7pm, and they're located at 15th East and 15th South. I will do a reading, light refreshments will be served, and then I'll be signing books. I'd love to see as many of you as possible out for that.

The next day, June 9th, from 12-3pm, I'll be signing copies of Operation: Montauk at Dr. Volt's Comic Connection. Dr. Volt's is at 2043 East 3300 South and it's the perfect opportunity to get your comic books and grab a copy of the book.

The week after that, June 15-17, I will have a table in the Artist's Alley at the Denver Comic-Con. I'm told I will be on a panel or two, but that hasn't been finalized yet. I'll have copies of Operation: Montauk, and DCCC will be the premiere of the audio-book of Man Against the Future, as read by Marcus. I hope to see as many of you out there as possible.

I'll continue updating you guys as more signings, events, and reviews of the book are added.

Anatomy of an Opening: The End of the Affair

Instead of breaking down a scene from a movie, this time we'll break down the opening of a book. (Previously, I've done scenes from City Lights, Citizen Kane, Raiders of the Lost Ark, and Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid.  I've also broken down the opening to Starship Troopers.

Graham Greene's The End of the Affair is absolutely one of my favorite books. The writing is lyrical and story heart-wrenching and beautiful. Greene's style of writing is such that he always has me gripped, whether it's the beginning of the book or the end. And he shows you so much about the character in his opening lines.

So, here are the first two paragraphs from the book:
A story has no beginning or end: arbitrarily one chooses that moment of experience from which to look back or from which, to look ahead. I say 'one chooses' with the inaccurate pride of a professional writer who - when he has been seriously noted at all - has been praised for his technical ability, but d…

The Symbiotic Relationship Between Art and Politics

Art is inherently political.

Let's just get that out of the way. We all have things we want to say (or things we want to not say) in our personal lives that shape the art we make. And artists, more often than not, are trying to say something with their art, even if their goal is to not say something.

There is no doubt that this has been a turbulent week in the country I live in. There are many of us that are confused and shocked and afraid of what might be to come in the future. That's understandable. As artists and writers, I feel like we're typically more empathetic than the general population. It's easy to think about what it's like to be in someone else's shoes because we spend so much of our creative time almost literally in someone else's shoes. And we need to pass that understanding on to our readers or viewers or however else they're consuming this art.

I've seen this troubling idea, though, that art needs to be purely for escape and that p…

50+ Rules and Tips About Writing I've Collected Over the Years

I have twenty or thirty notebooks and journals filled up with snippets about writing, my plans for stories, bits of dialogue, interesting ideas, plotlines, scraps of short stories, and a dozen other things. I carry one with me at all times and it takes me a couple of months to fill one up.

One of the things I've kept in one of my notebooks was a collection of writing tips and rules that I've collected over the years in my travels. From teachers, from books, from wherever. Most of my career has been spent screenwriting, so a lot of these are most applicable to that, but I wanted to present them so they might be of use to you as well.

I've never stopped collecting these over the years and I never will.

To start the list are Kurt Vonnegut's eight rules of writing. They are the first in my notebook and, I think, the most useful. I'll add a star to those I think are applicable most to screenwriting. Some of these aren't applicable to everyone in every situation, but…
