The annual Dragon*Con photo blog

Saturday, September 24th, 2011 | Author: jmward14 | Blog, DragonCon, beyond the veil, blogging, con photos, cons | Comments Off

For those of you who view clicking through picture galleries with the same horror our parents reserved for slide shows of Aunt Ermintrude's trip to the Catskills, today's post at Beyond the Veil is for you.  I've cherry-picked some of my best photos of Dragon*Con 2011 and wrapped them in the lightest of all possible con reports.  And there isn't a panel table anywhere in sight.  Enjoy!

Today’s Beyond the Veil post wasn’t what I planned doesn’t mean you shouldn’t read it. ;-)

Con Catch-up

Saturday, May 8th, 2010 | Author: jmward14 | Blog | Comments Off

Finally finished my April con reports on RavenCon, the Library of Congress, Turn the Page Bookstore Cafe’s 2010 mega-signing and the Washington Romance Writers Retreat. The results, plus twelve occasions for blackmail–er, photos are now live at Beyond the Veil. That means if you want to know what Roxanne St. Claire and Charlaine Harris are doing with those sugar packets, you’ll just have to click the link. Mwahahahahahaha!

Waiting to Promo

Sunday, January 17th, 2010 | Author: jmward14 | Blog | Comments Off

Still deep in the writing cave, but I’ll be emerging soon. Promise! (Be afraid. Be very afraid…) As a foretaste, today I posted the first tickle of promo for “Hoodoo Cupid”, my February 4 release from Red Rose, at Beyond the Veil.
Tomorrow, if I figure out how to do it, I’ll try to post a very low res version of one of the interior pages of Fantasy Art Templates. My promo copies arrived yesterday, and they are beautiful beyond belief. Even better, earlier tonight Jana Oliver was looking for the name of a specific member of the angelic hosts–and it was in there, along with everything from pirates to giants to snake goddesses. Not only is it gorgeous, the book’s a great reference too. Win!
Cheers and smiles,

Holiday Squirrels 2009 ((c) Greg Uchrin,

The tree has been trimmed (while it was snowing–win!) and my December blog at Beyond the Veil is live. All that’s left is to wish one and all a very happy holiday. May the big day–whichever one you celebrate–be spent with your loved ones doing that which brings you joy and warms your heart for the months ahead.

Ward Theater Sneak Peak

Saturday, November 21st, 2009 | Author: jmward14 | Blog | Comments Off

I’ve posted a sneak peak of the next installment of Ward Theater, “Green Eyes”, at Beyond the Veil. It’ll go live here on December 1, but until then, if you want to read it, you’ve got to go BtV.

Blogging for a friend

Thursday, November 19th, 2009 | Author: jmward14 | Blog | Comments Off

Bianca D’Arc was one of the first Samhain writers I met live–and one of the nicest. Her paranormal romances, usually featuring m/f/m menage, have won numerous awards, and in January her first m/f/m zombie romance will be released from Kensington. This is all great professional news for her.

What’s not great is what’s happening in her personal life. Her mom is very, very ill. As a result, she’s not even thinking about promoting her latest Samhain release, Dragon Storm. So the rest of us at Beyond the Veil are trying to help out. BtV’s fearless leader, Carolan, has posted the publisher’s blurb and a link to an excerpt. If paranormal menage–with dragons–is your thing, you won’t be disappointed.
