The Office of Shadow

Since it's been announced elsewhere, I guess it's safe for me to announce that I've sold a sequel to Midwinter, which is tentatively titled The Office of Shadow. I pitched it as "a spy thriller set in Faerie" and I think that's actually one of the most accurate elevator pitches I've ever come up with. It follows directly from the events of Midwinter, and will hopefully be released sometime around early 2010.

The kindly folks at Pyr have created a page for Midwinter. It says nice things about me, by people who know me personally. Which is not to say that those nice things aren't actually true. But they are suspicious. You decide:

I Voted Today

I voted today. The polling place was doing a brisk business, but was by no means crowded. I highly recommend the early voting experience.

If you are in America, and you are a registered voter, go vote. Don't wait. You get to decide the fate of your country, plus you get a sticker.

New Blogs Are Fun

Now I'm settling in, and despite my proclamation that I'd never write php again, I found myself writing php again in order to redirect the rss feed from the previous blog over to this one. If you're reading this in an rss feed reader and feel like you want to update to the new rss feed, you can subscribe to But the old url should work forever, so it doesn't matter one way or another.

I've Moved

Having formally ditched my career as a web developer, I've now decided to formally ditch all of my attempts at web development. Which is to say, I'm sick of digging around in php code and trying to coax mySQL databases to do whatever it is that they're supposed to do. I'm tired of digging around for the root password to my server and tired of worrying that I'm going to accidentally format the hard drive once I've foolishly su'ed myself into a position of authority.

So to hell with it! My career as a web developer is officially over. Now it's somebody else's problem!
