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 →

The 10th Anniversary event is all done. Now I’m taking a couple of days off to hang with Coach and Ma Sigler. Here is a fish I caught. It would have found you in your sleep and eaten your face, but I killed it and saved you. You’re welcome.
If you recall, ma’ams and/or sirs, Empty Set Entertainment currently has two properties optioned for TV series. NOCTURNAL is being developed by Lloyd Levin (producer of HELLBOY, DIE HARD 2, THE WATCHMEN), and INFECTED is being developed by Timberman/Beverly Productions (JUSTIFIED, ELEMENTARY). What, you say? You have two series in development? Yes. We are fat […]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
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 →
After working on a book for almost two years, having your biz partner go over it, two copy editors go over it, having a dedicated continuity editor go over it, and then reading it out loud for the audiobook, some mistakes still get through. And when the mistake is as butt-hurtin’ as the one below, […]Continue Reading →

Time marches on, yes, but some some plots don't
A short review of the DVD for ROSEMARY’S BABY, the 2014 made-for-TV miniseries remake of the 1968 classic.
If you’ve never seen the original, I highly recommend it. Based on the 1967 novel by Ira Levin, ROSEMARY’S BABY tells the tale of a struggling young couple that move into a hoity-toity Manhattan apartment building. Continue Reading →
Sometimes, shit just blows you away.
I’ve wanted to be a fiction writer since I was in the sixth grade. I’ve been a professional writer for over twenty-five years. I sat down about twenty years ago and set my sights on becoming a full-time novelist, accomplished that goal six years ago. Along the way, there […]Continue Reading →
