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…

Writing is Listening

In many social situations, I'm a talker. I like to think of myself as a raconteur, but it's more just like I don't know how to shut up. At least in the right situation. I've done a lot and know just a little bit about so many different things, it's easy for me to find something to talk about with people. When I can come out of my social anxiety shell, I actually like talking to people. But there are times when I can't really talk, I don't have the energy, emotional or physical, to do it. Instead, I just drink in the surroundings.

I like to listen. I like to observe.

It's something we writers have to do. We have to take in all the input we can. And sometimes that means shutting the hell up and just listening. Listen to your friends tell their stories. Listen to how they talk about other people and describe them. Listen to the words they use. Listen to the emotion in people's voices as they're talking. Watch how they talk. What sorts of things th…
