Fortunately for us, we happen to be very close to some of the set locations for one of our recently watched shows. It turns out we were just blocks away from not one, not two, but three locations used in Marvel's Iron Fist. The most recent in Netflix's series of Marvel heroes, Iron Fist tells the story of Danny Rand (Finn Jones.)

Cover Reveal: Lauren Harris’ “Unleash” http://www.nickkelly.com/2017/04/05/cover-reveal-lauren-harris-unleash/ Wed, 05 Apr 2017 09:36:06 +0000 http://www.nickkelly.com/?p=1941 A deadly price for freedom. A power she can't control.

Helena Martin doesn't know who she hates more, the sorcerers who fired the magic-laced bullet or the gang-lord master who used her mother as a shield. Both hunt the remnants of her pack and the only way Helena can protect them is using her newly-unleashed magic to lead the two factions away.

Happy Hour from the Tower – A Destiny Podcast http://www.nickkelly.com/2017/03/16/happy-hour-tower-destiny-podcast/ Thu, 16 Mar 2017 09:26:01 +0000 http://www.nickkelly.com/?p=1934 Friends, family, gamers! We have a new Destiny-themed podcast. It seems my esteemed colleague Tee Morris (of the award-winning Ministry of Peculiar Occurrences steampunk books) got an itch for us to podcast. As you've heard me say, podcasting is a gateway drug. Tee already co-hosts The Shared Desk with his lovely wife, Pip Ballantine. I'm already co-host of the Geek Wolfpack Podcast with Stacia and Brandon. So, this one is not a major time sink. Each episode is 30 minutes of Destiny-filled goodness, with Tee, Brandon and me waxing poetic. If you're looking for gamers who take themselves seriously, we're not the podcast for you.

The annual day of action typically has around 30 transactions with 70 players and countless draft picks changing hands. Buyers are looking for the final piece of the puzzle that could lead to playoff success. Sellers are looking to dump salaries. In this post, we'll review a couple teams who need depth or that missing piece, a few who are looking long term, and one very unique unknown commodity in the mix.

Book Review: Hacked Again http://www.nickkelly.com/2017/01/30/book-review-hacked/ Mon, 30 Jan 2017 10:02:01 +0000 http://www.nickkelly.com/?p=1890 In 2015, then-CEO of Cisco Systems, John Chambers, famously wrote, "There are two types of companies: those who have been hacked, and those who don’t yet know they have been hacked." In his 2016 novel, "Hacked Again," author Scott N. Schober proves that this is true, not just of organizations, but of individuals, including cybersecurity professionals.

Author Interview: Jeff Brackett http://www.nickkelly.com/2017/01/27/author-interview-jeff-brackett/ http://www.nickkelly.com/2017/01/27/author-interview-jeff-brackett/#comments Fri, 27 Jan 2017 09:49:11 +0000 http://www.nickkelly.com/?p=1884 Jeff Brackett is the author of Chucklers, which is a wildly fast-paced horror ride. The story features the outbreak of an ancient virus that turns victims into homicidal maniacs, with the odd side effect that they can't stop finding the humor in everything around them. Think zombie apocalypse, if the zombies laughed maniacally the whole time. The prolific author was kind enough to answer a few questions about the book and what he has on deck (pun intended).
