Thank you to everyone for all your support, kind words and interest in my book.

And I've noticed that there is something missing on the plotting side of the discussion.
I'm an unabashed plotter. I need to have a pretty good grasp... read more »
A huge THANK YOU to the incredible Skye Warren for running these awesome hops. I'm a big fan of her work and really appreciate the effort she puts into running an erotic-themed hop (because, seriously, EROTIC BOOKS ROCK!)
To celebrate the WET AND WILD blog hop, I thought I'd share a never-before... read more »

Characters have a way of catching their writers off guard. When I started writing Denying Yourself, I didn’t know it was going to be paranormal. I thought it was about two young guys who’d just graduated high school and decided to...read more »
A couple more nice reviews for ‘Film Freak’ in the national press…
‘Film Freak is a homage to pre-digital cinema, an elegy for the vanishing London of almost half a century ago, and a tribute to friendship, gonzo-style. Two thumbs up for this triple-billing.’ – Financial T...read more »
『パンフレットをＦＡＸして下さい』と。これは、私達は貴方を相手にしたくないから早く帰れと言う意味の発言だ。以前にも書いたが司書は書籍評価していない。基本は、日販などの取引業者が製作... read more »
Today I had a different blog subject planned but immediately changed my idea once I sat down with the computer. Today I would like to give a shout out to my Scribes sistas! We are a group of seven who have been together for quite some times. I’ve written about these six fine ladies before, but I... read more »
(Once you can fake sincerity, the rest is easy.)
“I know nothing.”
Remember that line? Once upon a time, “I know nothing” was the trademark alibi of Sergeant Schultz, that inept but lovable Nazi from the 1960s sitcom, Hogan’s Heroes.
Nowadays, it’s official White House policy.
Lately, it’s been a t...read more »

The Great Gatsby is one of my favourite novels. I even own the Penguin mug. Normally, I guess some people would be quite apprehensive seeing a film treatment of a favourite book, but I went in with an open mind to see what Baz Luhrmann would do to F. Scott Fitzgerald’s most famous work. It’s wort...read more »
I am writing my butt off, basically doing nothing but writing 16 hours a day, seven days a week, to try to finish Striking Distance on time. The writing is going well, and the story is finally — finally — coming together.
Yesterday afternoon I got a pleasant surprise when my RITA finalist pin f... read more »
You know what I learned today? Kansas City isn’t in Kansas. It’s in Missouri.
Now I’m all for people having fun with names, but honestly? There’s a little something called truth in advertizing too….
I learned this interesting fact because I’m going to a convention down there next week. I’m Guest of...read more »
I think Amazon’s servers are keeping tabs on my word count for DUST. To put some pressure on me to write faster, both WOOL and SHIFT are Kindle Daily Deals today. That lowers the price to $1.99 for each book. I’d call that a steal . . . except that both books are all over the torrentz and warez...read more »
I finished All In With the Duke at the end of March and turned it into my editor. Seems like forever ago when I finished that book, but since I haven't squee-ed about it on the blog yet.... read more »
A lot of my friends have trouble writing action scenes. Not on the sentence-by-sentence level – they know all the tricks and tips – but on a more general level. They know that their first-person viewpoint character is only going to have a close-up, confused picture of the battle, and they don’t k...read more »
Answer: A thought is the point of connection between the created being and the Creator. It’s a special deficiency by which the created being can rise. On the one hand it’s a corporeal deficiency since a person is helpless, not knowing what to do with his life and how t...read more »
I like how, especially in these two volumes, people generally behave reasonably and listen when people say they have... read more »
I'm seeing many authors rating their own material. While I would personally love to use that bit of advertisement to bump my own ratings up, I can't help but feel like this is a bit underhanded. I d... read more »
The story of Hansel and Gretel is not actually about Hansel or Gretel.
You are surrounded by examples and lessons and case studies that clearly aren't exactly about your project. There's never been a book written precisely about the situation you are facing right now, either. Perhaps one day they...read more »
So here's something obvious if only I'd stopped to think about it: an overnight trip with a 4 month old is a bit brutal.
This weekend, Squawk, the pterosaur and I tripped up to Sydney for the Aurealis Awards. We went partly because "First They Came…" was shortlisted, and mostly because I wanted t...read more »

A little Riordan family fun for you: Yesterday, our older son Haley graduated from high school, which was quite a milestone. As you may know, Haley was the reason I wrote the Percy Jackson books, since they began as bedtime stories for him when he was in first grade and was struggling with readin... read more »
Life is an ugly pond-scum rat-assed bastard and then you die.
This not-eating spell with the hellhounds has been grinding on and on and on and on and on and on and on and on and on and on, and they’re moving into serious weight-loss and loss of condition territory. You can see there’s something wr...read more »

Time ceased to exist and a sound Rory didn't recognize escaped from her throat. She sensed Isabelle standing beside her. She dropp... read more »
I've finally given up hope of pesky Eternal Press/Damnation Press ever stirring themselves to give me back the rights to literary gay short story Painting from Life . So I've republished it myself with a lovely new cover (which is far better than their one, bitch bitch ...) on the Kind... read more »
If you’ve never tried the audio book of Leviathan, it’s pretty awesome. Alan Cumming does a wonderful job with all the accents and characters.

I wanted to love it. I really did. But... no. Even by Trek science-out-the-window and understanding-of-bureaucratic-logistics standards, the plot fell apart if you looked twice, there was overuse of fanservice in the wrong places (IMO), and oh go... read more »
