Writers have a lot of opinions about writing. I know that may sound like a pretty deep concept, so I’ll give you a minute (cue Jeopardy theme). Welcome to the Zeedub Inkwell, my catch-all for author-related brain droppings.

But What About This: A Max and the Multiverse Retort

But What About This: A Max and the Multiverse Retort

Max and the Multiverse is a sci-fi comedy series where humor reigns supreme. Many shifts are played for laughs and not meant to be taken seriously. I tell my readers that the entire series can be viewed as Russell Crowe in a clown suit shouting...

My Big Fat Social Media Marketing Experiment

My Big Fat Social Media Marketing Experiment

You may have noticed that I rolled out a new website design over the last several days. That's an egotistical assumption, of course. I would be genuinely surprised if anyone had noticed at all. But, it was a big deal for me. Not long ago, I posted...

I'm about to anger a lot of writers and editors, so strap in and enjoy the rage tornado. Are you ready for a horrifying admission? Here goes ... I publish novels without using content editors or critique groups (dun dun duuuuun). And, my books are...

About the Author, Extended Edition

About the Author, Extended Edition

Each one of my novels has a short "About the Author" section. Like, really short. We're talking two lean sentences and a website. I have never been one to vomit my backstory onto readers. They are there to read a story, not learn about my...

An Author’s Guide to Comic Cons

As an author, what if I told you that there are places in the world where your core audience gathers in large numbers to buy your books? They listen to your spiel, ask fun and interesting questions, and even thank you for your time. Seems like a...
