1. Guesting on TBR Podcast

    This week, I was lucky enough to be a guest on The Brooks Review podcast. Ben’s a great host, and I was delighted to be on the show. We talked mostly about the self-publishing process, some of its chief difficulties, and tips for writing framed around my background in secondary education. If you haven’t listened to the show before, it has a lot going for it. I recommend the pilot episode, in which Ben describes the direction and philosophy behind it all.

    Of course, I’d love it even more if you listened to my episode, but that’s just me. And to no one’s surprise, Alora’s Tear gets a mention or two throughout.

    Check it out. And remember that with podcasts (as with apps and books) reviews help a great deal. If you like it—and say so in a review—you’d be doing a bigger favor than you might think.

  3. On this week’s Critically Speaking podcast: Controversy. How does an industry with games that feature so many guns and so many deaths not have controversy? According to this week’s feature article, there are no controversial games. Nate and Scott try their best to understand and shed some light on the issues facing gaming and its audience.

  4. For those following the publication of my new book, Fragments: Alora’s Tear, Vol. I, I have some big news.

    Pre orders are now available on iBooks and at BarhamInk.com (paperback)!

    Amazon and others make the pre order process much more difficult (and in some cases impossible). So if you’re on Kindle, Kobo, or Nook, the wait will be a bit longer.

    Thanks for your support. The biggest news yet—release day—comes on August 18th.
