My new novel ALIVE is coming out in less than a month. That means advance copies have gone out, and the first batch of online reviews have come back. Most of the reviews are great (happy boy!). Some — as is to be expected — not so much. A few of the 1-stars are downright […]Continue Reading →
I’m not female.
There, the cat is out of the bag. In all things, my perceptions are filtered through the eyes of a man. Keep that in mind as you read this. I’m not an expert on these subjects, and often find myself completely mystified when strong opinions swirl around particular subjects. I listen as […]Continue Reading →
Fans mourn when a creator passes on:
but what about the other way around?
I love my fans like nobody’s business. I’ve worked my ass off to get where I am, and I continue to do so to this day, but I never forget that it is my readers who give me the life that I have.
“Wait a minute ,” you say, “how come you’re not calling us Junkies?”
Hold yer pants […]Continue Reading →

Oh, Amazon, you know us so well. This “buy it again” email nails the Empty Set Entertainment culture right on its cold, wet little nose. We run on dog toys and coffee. In our defense, there are 80 cups of coffee in that one box, so by the time the Little Ball of Hate™ finishes dismembering these toys (third time for the Cardinal, second time for the Dinosaur, the DoDo Bird is still hanging tough), we’ll nee to put in a new order to keep things moving along.Continue Reading →
Narrator of the DIVERGENT series, WINTER'S BONE
We’re downright tickled to announce that we’ve landed actress Emma Galvin as the voice talent for the ALIVE audiobook. I first heard her work narrating the blockbuster novel DIVERGENT, by Veronica Roth. I felt Galvin’s performance of Tris, the main character in DIVERGENT, convincingly captured the essence of a young woman thrust into a difficult and […]Continue Reading →
Or: A primer on peeps who write like me
I am a lucky dude who has a bunch of fans who read everything I put out. You all rock. Your farts aren’t stinky, they actually smell like roses. You will live forever in big castles with big giants protecting the gates. I know this. Is pravda.
When people finish the Scott Sigler catalog, I […]Continue Reading →
Scott's first-ever reading held here
Ten years on, Scott begins the final rewrite
The father of one of my lifelong friend recently passed away. On 48 hours notice, I jumped on a plane from San Diego to Detroit, then drove four hours from Detroit to Cheboygan, MI, for the funeral. Several of my friends did the same: drop everything, one of our own has lost a parent. Not all of us made it — life gets in the way — but enough of us did for me to stop and think about how amazing it is that our friendships have lasted our entire lives.
I live a rather fortunate existence. Hard work has made me what I am, don’t get me wrong, but there’s been more than a fair share of circumstances beyond my control that have given me a leg up in the world. Along with parents who are like something out of an 80s Disney flick, a business partner that solves more problems than Winston Wolfe, and …Continue Reading →

This year is the 20th anniversary of the first season of FRIENDS. Yes-yes, I know, you hate that show, you find it insipid and dumb — and yet you’ve watched several dozen episodes, and felt bad about yourself for laughing along with them. I loved the show. I couldn’t stand David Schwimmer’s role, but hey, five out […]Continue Reading →
Book II of Pierce Brown's RED RISING trilogy
As a novelist, I realize I’m supposed to keep some level of analytical distance in order to critique to structure, form, plot, pacing, character development, etc., but for the RED RISING series, my button-pushing brain simply shuts off about five pages in — much as it does with the GAME OF THRONES series. Like an amoeba surrounding a hapless paramecium, Pierce Brown’s debut series simply engulfs me.
The single best thing I can say about GOLDEN SON and the series is this: I wish I could live in this world. Which is weird, considering …Continue Reading →
