I know many of my readers and Facebook and Goodreads friends share my love of Alice Hoffman's brilliant novel, The Dovekeepers. The two-part miniseries begins tonight in the US. I am sure it will be shown, too, in the UK and Australia and other countries, but I don't know there will be a delay or... Read more of this blog post »

Thea Hayworth Thea Hayworth's blog:

One of the most interesting things about writing science fiction, even near-future sci-fi, is deciding when and how to use slang and how to avoid anachronisms. If you’re coming up with something new, it has to be baked into the world, or it’s going to fly right over the reader’s head. It’s also w...

I’m sick of it, I’m just so sick of it.

ARC Reviews, Free Giveaways, Book Releases, New and Nifty.

Alright, I made that last one up, but I bet Goodreads will add it soon. Yeah, I’m talking about BS emails and “events” that keep clogging my inbox.

I suppose some of these could be coming from my fri... Read more of this blog post »

Okay, so being an indie author is both the best thing ever, and the worst thing ever. How about I start with the bad first, huh? Yeah, let's get that out the way.

The bad:

1. Nobody knows who you are

This one really sucks. I recently did a Goodreads giveaway and got to talk to a lot of cool people.... Read more of this blog post »

One of the things I truly love about writing for children and (soon) for young adults is being able to read what else is out there. I’m almost at the end of Veronica Roth’s Divergent trilogy, and although I want to know what happens, I also don’t what it to finish. It’s a terrific read on the sur...

It's been a while since I've published anything of note (since 2009). The truth is when I finished the Doom of Avolir I had just met my future wife. In the subsequent years we got married and had our first daughter. In that time I've worked to bolster my family and just focused on getting us on t... Read more of this blog post »

Learned a big lesson. It's wise to ask yourself this question when you start a new book.

"Will this definitely be a standalone book or will it be part of a series or have a sequel."

When I wrote my first novel, August 9th, I thought there could never be a Part 2,3... or even a sequel. Now that I'm... Read more of this blog post »

Before I was published, I hardly ever told anyone that I was a writer. I was a coward. I know. But almost every time I told someone I was a writer, they'd ask, "Oh. What have you published?"

Most of the people weren't trying to put me on the spot. And they weren't t... Read more of this blog post »

Brendon McCullum is in mid-air. He is above the ground, above the ball. Floating. Flying.


The ball is heading for the boundary. McCullum sticks his hand down just before his body hits the ground. He stops the ball, but his hand, his shoulder, and most of his spine are on the padded triangle.

Most Shakespeare tragedies. Paradise Lost. A Clockwork Orange. House of Cards.

What do the above works have in common?

They feature a protagonist who is thoroughly reprehensible - yet, since they're the focalising character, we're forced to view events from their perspective. We watch Iago gleefull... Read more of this blog post »
