After the events of Last Planet Standing, the MC2 (next generation) Avengers were in a bind. Their forces have been depleted by injuries. American Dream was left in charge by Tony Stark designed robot Avenger Mainframe while he goes to... Read more of this blog post »
My annual appearance at Tor.com. I write about how diversity of characters in YA can improve the genre – which frankly I thought was a bit of a cheat, preaching-to-the-converted sort of topic. Heh. Guess how far down the comments someone uses the term ‘politically correct’ as a perjorative. There...Read more of this blog post »

Well, Hugh, my writing actually will cost me money.
I just sent a short story to an editor and a cover artist. They won’t cost me a lot of money, but I think it will be money well spent. Maybe I’ll break even?
It's tough finding gifts that are fun, unique, functional and won't break the bank. Between October and December we have two adoption days to celebrate, plus two birthdays and Christmas. Ack!
Let's just say that I am always looking for cute gifts. Here are some that are affordable, a few that are... Read more of this blog post »
وأخيرًا انتهى الفصل الدراسي الأول ، بالأمس كان ختام هذا الفصل بتحدي جديد وتعلم مهارة جديدة . حضرت صباحًا دورة من دورات عمادة الدراسات العليا عن التحفيز وكيفية التغلب على الصعوبات ولحظات الشعور بالملل والتعب والإحباط وكانت دورة جميلة وفرصة جيدة للتواصل. تلاها ظهرًا المحاضرة الأخيرة في طرق تحليل ال...Read more of this blog post »

The tour is set! As I said before, I’m hitting the eastern side of the U.S. hard this year. They have been feeling neglected, and though I will miss seeing familiar faces on the West Coast, I’m looking forward to the new places I’ll be going this year.
I’ve got a short version here, or you can go...Read more of this blog post »

Wow, that is so great! I wish you all the best with your writing! Thank you for saying such nice things.
I have dozens of thin notebooks that I keep lying around (so many cute ones from Korea!), and I usually do a first draft of a scene in a notebook first. Then I put it into my computer, revising...Read more of this blog post »

I was reading an article in NewScientist the other day about a system devised by academics at Royal Holloway, University of London, which “could form the basis of a recommendation system that makes suggestions based solely on an automatic assessment of the text.” Unlike Amazon’s recommendations,...Read more of this blog post »
You know when you have so many things to do, that you kind of hang suspended between them? None of the things are great and major, or even particularly difficult, but there are so many of them and they have to be all done at the same time. I don’t even know where to start.

Some pretty grand news today: a Selene cover reveal up over at Mel’s “My World.” (You may have noticed the new banner up at the serial site.) The cover comes via Indigo Chick Designs, and I can’t recommend Skyla’s work enough. She also does editing and ebook/print formatting.

Nicloas Winding Refn sure is an interesting director, and one I very much admire. He really does like to teeter on the knife edge between profundity and pretentiousness, though. Valhalla Rising, in spite of the never-knowingly-overchiselled Mads Mikkelsen, I found a frustrating mixture of fascina...Read more of this blog post »
