I’m not dead.
Finishing up GayRomLit in a few hours. I’ll scrounge for photos from other people like the magpie I am. It’s been fantastic seeing Greg, who truly is the brother-symbiote I apparently have out in the world.
There was a shit ton of whiskey. And not enough sleep.

The fact that there's so much we can learn through online classes and tutorials now makes me so happy.
When I was first started writing stories, I went with gut instinct and what I was familiar with from books I've read and loved. That was a lot of trial and error over the years and while I would... Read more of this blog post »
There's only ONE day left until Keepsake is here! I can't believe I put out three books in 4.5 months. I'll probably never manage that pace again, but it was fun!
I'm getting lots of questions about the fate of the series, though, and so I'll answer them as best I can!
Q: Sarina, is this the last...Read more of this blog post »

Ξέρω τι σκέφτεστε οι περισσότεροι- συγγραφείς ή μη- πως ένας οδηγός συγγραφής σε 50 απλά βήματα, δεν έχει περισσότερο νόημα από εκείνα τα self help βιβλία που υπόσχονται να σε κάνουν ευτυχισμένο· δεν θα σε κάνει συγγραφέα, όπως και τα άλλα δεν θα σε βγάλουν από την κατάθλιψη. Μπορεί όμως να σε π... Read more of this blog post »

Every now and then, someone will ask me about what my guilty pleasures are. But I don’t actually have any.
Not because my taste is pure sophisticated perfection, no. I like pop tarts and velveeta and happy bubblegum pop songs (some of them, anyway) and popcorn read-em-once adventures just fine. An...Read more of this blog post »

Last Thursday I was privileged to be able to take part in the Sunderland launch of The End collection, published by Unthank Books and inspired by artwork rom Nicolas Ruston.

De vez en cuando, entre cerveza y cerveza, algún amigo me pregunta si quiero pasar a la Historia de la Literatura. Así, en mayusculas, que impresiona más.

I went on a really long walk Saturday and chanced upon a Dock Dogs competition in a shopping center near us. I love watching these athletic dogs leap off a dock and fly through the air. The dog in the photo above flew 23 feet before splash down.
Enthralled, I sat down to watch. I'd already walked... Read more of this blog post »

My Fellow Americans and Earthlings:
