Can’t Stop the Serenity

I’m pleased to announce that Harmsway Press is an official sponsor of the 10th annual Can’t Stop the Serenity global charity event, benefiting Equality Now.

Since its inauguration, the Firefly/Serenity fandom through CSTS has raised over $1 million for international women’s rights and other important charities.

Whether you’re a Browncoat, purple-belly or just believe in doing good works, check them out:

Murderous Row in Print

Happy Phil Bowman Day, Snyper fans!

Appropriately in time for the holiday, the print version of “Murderous Row” is now available here through the Snyper Store.

Digital editions are still available as a Kindle exclusive on Amazon.

Happy Holidays

Happy holidays, Snyper fans. The prequel novella “Murderous Row” has been uploaded to Amazon and should be available by Christmas morning. It’s a real holiday miracle!

Typesetting is underway for the print version, which will be available here at the Snyper Store when it is completed.

Murderous Row

After a long and busy convention summer, I’m finally happy to announce that the Snyper novella “Murderous Row” is now in the hands of my editor for final revisions, with an anticipated holiday release both in paperback and as an Amazon e-book exclusive.

The prequel is set about three months before the start of the main novel and will touch on some of the “how Phil gets Ashley” story while Phil struggles with his latest P.I. case. – JMH

Twin Tiers Comic-Con

I’m a featured guest this weekend at Twin Tiers Comic-Con in Elmira, NY. So far it’s been spectacular–including a big round of fireworks last night to mark the city’s 150 anniversary.

If you’re in the Southern Tier or Northern Tier (which is apparently south of the Southern Tier) or elsewhere in the Upstate NY/Eastern PA area, stop by tomorrow and say hi. I’ll be at table 117 in the Artist’s Alley and participating in the Create Your Own panel. See you there! – JMH

Live from Shore Leave

Shore Leave was one of my first big regional conventions, so I was happy to return this year–both for the convention itself and as my first solo launch as an independent vendor. Quite simply, I’ve been overwhelmed by the fine reception and support I’ve received here.

So if you’ve stopped by my table to say hi, buy a book, share a laugh or indulge in a temporary tattoo, thank you for making this convention a great experience. And if you’ve yet to stop by, we still have one more day where you can find me on the main level in the dealer’s corridor. Thanks, everyone! – JMH

Wizard World Philadelphia

A big thank you to everyone I got to meet and visit this past weekend at Wizard World Philadelphia. The crowds were huge, largely due to the presence of the big damn heroes Nathan Fillion and Alan Tudyk, not to mention the tag-team Whogasm of Matt Smith and Karen Gillan. I swear, you couldn’t swing a lightsaber without hitting a Jayne cunning hat or a fez in there.

Next up on the convention schedule is Shore Leave on August 1-3 in Maryland, plus also a possible last-minute add for another venue shortly afterward. More details as I get them.

And of course a very big thank you to all the folks who stopped by to say hi, picked up a book or donated to Equality Now on behalf of the Browncoats of NYC.


2014 Summer Convention Schedule

In conjunction with the Pennsylvania Browncoats and the Browncoats of New York City, I’ll have a table at Wizard World Philadelphia Comic Con on June 19-22. Stop by and say hi, pickup up a book, flask or other new Snyper merchandise. Or if you’re in the mood to do good works, you can pick up a hand-knitted cunning hat or other Firefly-inspired items. The Browncoat groups’ charitable proceeds benefit Equality Now, so that’s a win for everyone.

Then August 1-3, I’ll be flying solo and running my own table at Shore Leave 36 in Baltimore, MD.

Hope to see you all there!

Geek Outlaw Giveaway

As part of its July contest, is giving away free signed copies of Snyper (and official Hot Nerd Girl calendars!) over on its website. Here’s the link:

Minor E-Book Updates

Due to some pesky cosmetic issues with non-breaking spaces in the Snyper e-book, the Kindle and epub files have been updated. This only affects how some paragraphs lines are justified, but please refresh or redownload the files in your devices for the latest version. Thanks – JMH
