Cake and Death

McSciFi OnlinePosted by Bill McCormick Thu, January 17, 2019 08:55:33
While Eddie Izzard offered Cake or Death, I'm far more magnanimous. I will allow you to have Cake AND Death. Aren't I fun? I was interviewed by, the internationally renowned author, Claire Buss for her blog A Slice of Cake. You can CLICK HERE to read it. You'll learn more than you needed to ever know about The Brittle Riders and you'll learn how to make Irish Apple Cake with Custard Sauce.

How many sci-fi writers can offer that?

If David Brin came off a three day tequila bender, and dropped acid, he would have written The Brittle Riders.

A Deep Dive into the World of McSciFi.

Genesis Science Fiction Radio will be interviewing me and accepting calls from listeners. Feel free to tune in and call with all your questions. Or just say hi. Either works for me.

Also, don't forget, THE DEATH OF FAERIES has extended its submission deadline to February 1. If you, or anyone you know, are wanting to submit, the instructions are in the below graphic.

McSciFi's McStupid McContest

McSciFi OnlinePosted by Bill McCormick Sat, December 01, 2018 11:46:41
The dumbest contest ever.

Here's the deal. Anyone who subscribes to my mailing list is automatically entered to win stuff. Not great stuff, but stuff nonetheless. Here's how it will work. On January 1, 2019, two names will be randomly selected from my email list and those lucky people will get stuff. Specifically, this stuff.

1. A 2X woman's T-shirt with my face on it. One is black, the other is burgundy. Which winner gets which will be entirely left to chance.
2. Autographed copies of issues 1, 2, & 3 of Legends Parallel.
3. An autographed copy of Svarozic.
4. And that's it.

If I'm feeling flush I may toss in an autographed bookmark. But don't count on it.

Look, I told you this contest was dumb.To make it even dumber, I have signed up with several sweepstakes companies to promote it. I'll be bundled up with offers for TVs, time-shares, and so on. That should get odd.

You're welcome to tell your friends, if you have any after admitting you think this is fun, and get them to sign up too. All they need to do is be on my mailing list on January 1, 2019.

Lastly, if you want to actually meet me and take a selfie or something, I'll be in Chicago at Pocket Con on December 15. That's in the Cultural Center at 78 East Washington. It's free to get in and fun for humans of all ages. It specifically highlights works geared toward the LGBT community and people of color. I've been to a few and they're always a blast.

McSciFi Gives McThanks

McSciFi OnlinePosted by Bill McCormick Tue, November 20, 2018 13:19:51

Here, in the happy land of Bill McSciFi, I have a lot to be thankful for. My girlfriend is sane, I have a roof over my head, and there's food on the table. There have been times when none of that was true.

I'm grateful for many things. I'm grateful that, Shane Thomas, the owner of Science Fantasy Hub allowed me to share the hard science behind The Brittle Riders and, in fact, was so impressed he not only bought the book, he gave it a 5-Star review. He even shared it with over 10,000 people who follow him.

I'm grateful that Brian "Bigger Lion" Daniel, owner of Hadithi Sambama, took a risk on letting me write Legends Parallel and is now seeing success for his company. Check out his brand new website to catch up on everything. He's assembled an amazing roster and I'm honored to be a part of it.

I could go on but, mostly, I'm grateful for you fuckers. You maniacs keep buying my shit, showing up at events, and telling your friends to check out my stuff. It's because of you people that everything I do is possible.

Next month I'm going to run the stupidest sweepstakes you've ever seen. But it will be fun. Until then, I wish you and yours nothing but good health, success, and happiness.

McSciFi in Motown

McSciFi OnlinePosted by Bill McCormick Thu, October 25, 2018 13:03:44
The 10th anniversary of MCBACC is happening on November 3, 2018 at in the Student Center of Wayne State University. This is the 3rd time Legends Parallel will be represented. The fine folks at MCBACC will be pulling out all the stops to make sure everyone has a great time. There will be SWAG bags featuring product from comic creators from all over the world, cosplay contests, and much more. Bill will be there, as he is each year, with Brian "Bigger Lion" Daniel, the owner of Hadithi Sambamba Comix.

There are still a few tickets left so CLICK HERE to get yours now.

We're also thrilled to announce that the Kickstarter campaign for ICC Magazine is fully funded. For those who pledged your SWAG will begin shipping on October 25.

Lastly, we had a great time at the White Oak Author Fest. Sporting a new, promo, T-shirt for The Brittle Riders prompted an unusual occurrence. We sold more shirts than books. Which means there are people out there promoting a book they've never read which was written by an author they've barely heard of.

So that's cool.

Not Too Cool For You

McSciFi OnlinePosted by Bill McCormick Thu, October 04, 2018 14:13:52
Certainly everything I'm about to share is too cool for those who don't follow this blog. But, you are not such a being.

First and foremost, the ICC Mag Kickstarter is gaining traction and getting ready to share all those cool rewards with tis backers. Since autographed stuff from me is in that haul you should head over now and share your sheckles.

Next up, I've been pegged to edit an upcoming anthology called THE DEATH OF FAERIES for Azoth Khem Publishing. It's a collection of LGBTQIA themed stories based in sci-fi, horror, or fantasy genres. It's going to be fun and dark. Feel free to share this with anyone you think might be interested.

In the meantime, thanks to each and everyone of you for your continued support.

Good news everyone! I have added a merchandise page where you can buy T-shirts emblazoned with some of your favorite McSciFi imagery. Including the amazing cartoon, done by Leslie Tejlor, that you see on top of this blog.

Someone Likes This Stuff

McSciFi OnlinePosted by Bill McCormick Tue, September 11, 2018 13:01:29

Since the second week in January I've had one, or more, titles in the top 10 at Nerdanatix. Someone's liking this shit. Make sure you aren't missing out.

Svarožič is the story of a woman trapped inside a man and a god trapped inside a human. Since she's all one person, there are issues she needs to deal with.

Legends Parallel is the story of a woman who wants to control the multiverse, no mater the cost to others. Just in case you thought that quantum physics wasn't violent, or sexy, enough for you, we fixed that.
