I’m Apparently Going to Unnotice Your Ass
Hey, finally! Official news on my latest book:
TOR GETS ‘UNNOTICED’ BY ROBERT BROCKWAY
In a second deal coming out of Tor this week, Paul Stevens bought Robert Brockway’s The Unnoticeables, at auction, in a three-book, six-figure deal. Brockway, who is a senior editor and columnist for Cracked.com, was represented by Sam Morgan at Jabberwocky Literary. The other two books acquired will be sequels to The Unnoticeables, and are currently untitled. Tor said the books are “hilarious urban fantasy novels” set in a world that pulls from New York’s punk scene in the 1970s as well as the modern-day Los Angeles entertainment industry. The Unnoticeables is tentatively scheduled for July 2015.
That’s right - THREE god damn books coming your way. I am going to literally crush you with an avalanche of my books*.
*Provided you are very small, and do not struggle too much.
Woo-hoo! Let’s all celebrate Robert's good news The Brock Way™ (with bourbon)!

#4. The First Episode of Sherlock Predicts the Main Character’s “Suicide”
Doing her duty as a TV cop (that is, being antagonistic toward the brilliant outsider who always turns out to be right), Sergeant Sally Donovan says this early on in the episode:
"One day we’ll be standing around a body and Sherlock Holmes will be the one who put it there."
She’s convinced he’s a psycho, and to Sally’s credit, he is, but it’s also true that at the end of Season 2 the police end up on the scene of a death Sherlock was responsible for — his own. Even more chillingly, the taxi driver who’d been responsible for all the murders throughout the first episode turns out to be a pawn in Moriarty’s cat-and-mouse game with Sherlock, and even says this to the detective:
"I’m gonna talk to you, and then you’re going to kill yourself."
If your digs look like they were decorated by Sid Vicious using the contents of his stomach, people will treat them accordingly.

#6. Know What You Want
Ever heard the advice “Dress for the job you want”? I don’t know if it’s true in the business world (I bayoneted my last tie), but it’s sure-as-a-schnapps-hangover true about parties. … Don’t want anyone breaking bones in your precious living room? Don’t leave a bottle of Everclear next to a pile of shot glasses and a Polaroid instant camera. Drunk people don’t take direction, but they do take suggestions. A few empty trash cans, a clean carpet, and locks for all your handguns send a clear message your guests will appreciate. Leaving a bottle of tequila next to a pair of bicycles and two homemade lances sends an equally clear, much more entertaining lesson.
