I've just signed up for DL Hammons' 2012 WRiTE CLUB.  I'm also participating in Martin T. Ingham's Shootout, so I'll be a busy little writer, and that's not even counting the fact that I've got my own projects to work on and a new book to prep, Seven Thunders, which will be the first installment in the Space Corps series, something I've been working on for almost twenty years.

Who am I?  I'm Spider-Man.  Just kidding, I'm Tony Laplume.  I just recently released a collection of short stories:

I've been putting that together since last fall, writing most of the stories since January 2011, and in fact have also included a Space Corps story from 2003 and a novella from 2005, just for good measure, as well as a few slightly more recent efforts, but from outside of that general timeframe.  You can get a print edition or Kindle edition.  Or you can just look at the pretty cover.

I self-published that earlier this month, and self-published The Cloak of Shrouded Men in 2007.  That's a gritty superhero story about the illusion of control and its corrupting influence.  It was written in three successive Novembers as part of National Novel Writing Month, which was the only way I was going to write my first book.  I have since completed three additional manuscripts.

I currently have another book, Yoshimi, preparing to be published by Hall Bros. Entertainment, which if everything goes according to plan should be published later this summer.

    1. I'm trying to make it one! Thanks for signing on!

  2. Wow. A shiny new blog. Sweet!

    Any chance you'll be doing NaNoWriMo this year? I really want to participate, but I'm afraid I might be too bogged down with promoting Guardians right around then. It would be my first time too, even though I managed to write 50k words during a similar challenge earlier this year.

    1. I did NaNo for three years, so other than doing it again, I guess I don't really have a reason to, especially since I found the dedication to write long-form fiction without it, in a similar amount of time. My plan is to start writing the new book in August, but it could be September, depending on where I am with other projects.
