I’m actively writing an ongoing series called How to Succeed in Evil, an ongoing story about Edwin Windsor, Evil Efficiency Consultant for Supervillains. He and his associates (Agnes and Topper) provide good advice, but the villains don’t listen because they are all too egomanical. It’s a loving satire of the superhero genre.

I also write humorous and thoughtful essays about topics I’m thinking about to do this work. Or to get out of my head to be clear enough to do the work. The cream of what you might find in a writer’s commonplace book.

Almost everything is podcasted. And this includes interviews with interesting and entertaining people. One of the absolute best ways to do research and spark ideas is simply to go have a conversation with someone worth talking to.

Why subscribe?

Put it this way. If we could hang out once a month, and you would be happy to a buy me one drink because we were having a great time together, you should subscribe.

It's also deeper connection. To produce a good book, you need a thick mulch of writing and reading and thinking and talking. Many writers keep a commonplace book. I keep a shoddy mess of multiple archives of notes, outlines, and odd thoughts. You'll get access to all that and more. You’ll get input on what I’m working on and how.

Plus, Also, you’ll get access to pretty much everything I’ve ever written or recorded. Including all of the award-winning episodes of the Seanachai Podcast from way back in 2005.

Subscribe to get full access to the newsletter and archive. Never miss an update.

My subscribers are awesome too. You’ll fit right in. You should join this group.
