Marcus V. Calvert Marcus V. Calvert's blog:
If I'm working on a collection of short stories, I pass them to my editor (Ed) on an individual basis. Same for chapters in any book I write. Once the piecemeal editing's done, then we look at the book as a whole.

In my opinion, it's better than the other way around.

After a year of working on it, I have taken a few weeks off "Tourist of Infinity". I needed a break. The novel has grown from an idea of which I was uncertain into something with a life of its own, but I think I have become too close to it. I need some distance. The stirrings inside me to return...

Damaso Claims His Heir (One Night With Consequences, #5) by Annie WestDamaso Claims His Heir

A reality-check has made
you feel inefficacious.
In swift ineloquence you have
taken an rigmarole stance.
The drought pushed you there,
to another border of circumstance.
And there you stand, in spacious rigor,
with less importance.

A tavern, a tawdry element to logically
compute your findings.
