Have you ever read a book or a story in which, halfway through, there’s suddenly a ghost? There you are, reading what you think is a perfectly ordinary, mainstream suspense, mystery, or romance, when suddenly Boo! Out pops a random spirit. You may think this is far-fetched, but I’ve seen it in bo...Read more of this blog post »

I’ve been scouting out places for the next stories in THE CALLING/REBORN series. The new stories — a novella tentatively titled VAMPIRE REBORN and a full-length novel, FIGHT FOR LOVE, — needed new places for their settings.

I was recently chatting with some authors, when one confessed how much she loathed Best of Book Lists this time of year. We all chimed in with our shared exhaustion on the topic, and we admitted that our enjoyment of them was in direct correlation with whether or not we made a list. Because of t...Read more of this blog post »
Here’s an interesting post about alternate history, over at Fantasy Faction.
The post points out that creating a point of divergence is easy, but developing a rounded story from that point is difficult.
Let me just mention that if you want to see a set of fully-developed worlds based on alternate h...Read more of this blog post »

Love the cover art, and this TOC is so amazing. Honored to have my story “Playing With Fire” in here. It’s got more wolves, fireflies, a hut on a hill, a man alone trying to fix his broken heart, and a giant tree branch that may be his undoing.
Looks like Michael Bailey and Written Backwards have...Read more of this blog post »
