What’s the most important thing we do in our lifetime? Love one another. I’m a firm believer in the Golden Rule (treat others like you would like to be treated).

Sabaa Tahir Sabaa Tahir's blog:

What an amazing last few weeks this has been. I can’t compare it to anything–it is too much, too fast. Inside, I think I’m still a kid from the desert who never thought she’d get to share a story that anyone found worth reading. How did all of this happen? I can’t wrap my head around it.

Cyndia Rios-Myers Cyndia Rios-Myers's blog:
Along with reading and writing, I love taking pictures. All I have is a point-and-shoot camera; nothing fancy. We recently got back from a vacation to Chicago and Pittsburgh, where I took lots of pictures. (Some were taken here in Southern California).

It looks like the cute little Mi-Tan figure... Read more of this blog post »

Frederick Buechner Frederick Buechner's blog:




Today's guest quote is by Rob Bell, from Love Wins:



It's as if we're currently trying to play the piano while wearing oven mitts.



We can make a noise, sometimes even hit the notes well enough to bang out a melody, but it doesn't sound like it could, or should.



The elements are all there-fingers, key...

I have just discovered Taylor Swift. That might sound a strange thing to say, because she has been massively successful for several years. And it is a little bit ucky for a fifty year old bloke to express an interest in a twenty five year old chanteuse. The two things are linked. There comes a… Read more of this blog post »

I quickly wanted to discuss a little bit about why Floor 21 is currently the only book I'm selling.

The thing is, between writing The Dream Map and Floor 21, I think my writing took a significant jump in terms of storytelling, pace and character development. So much so that when I look at the Drea... Read more of this blog post »
