Jonathan  Gould Jonathan Gould's blog:
One thing I really love about internet-land is the amount of wisdom that's out there. So many people are so good at so many things, and they're so happy to share it. People are always putting up useful information about how to do this and how to do that. It can be extremely useful.

As for me, well... Read more of this blog post »

Imagine that you've announced to anyone and everyone who might care (and for me that's an admittedly small number) that you're releasing a book on January 30th. Imagine that you've very responsibly hit publish on said book three days prior to your release deadline just to ensure that you come thr... Read more of this blog post »

J.A. Belfield J.A. Belfield's blog:
Okay, it dawned on me recently that I have a couple apologies to make. Because early last year, I kinda stated a release schedule for a bunch of short stories, and … by end of April, I’ll have only delivered on two. So I fail. But here’s my defence. Last year, my head was super … Continue reading... Read more of this blog post »

R. Joseph Hoffmann R. Joseph Hoffmann's blog:







We all begin in what we end
since from the Garden we did wend
and traded pineapples for thorn
and turned God's care for us to scorn.

Sad, isn't it, this morbid turn
from Paradise, from man to worm.
From clay to clay, and dust to dust
we drearily pursue our Must.

I recently tagged a couple people in a Facebook post about a friend’s book trailer. I knew the subject matter of the book would highly resonate with them AND I know this author is an amazing writer. Win-Win for everyone! In less than ten minutes there were several people interested in ordering th...

Paul Levinson Paul Levinson's blog:
Good to see The Americans back on television for the debut of its third season tonight. The whole episode was enjoyable. But like an old-fashioned sandwich in which the bread is the tastiest part, my favorite scenes in the show were at the bumpers, or the beginning and the end.

Make me your villain




May I just say this is one of the few times my penmanship has been on point. (Also the way Ursula photographs books makes me want to EAT them. Or read them. One or the other.)

With the rise of tablets and other
e-readers, some are starting to pronounce the traditional hard back book as
dead. As new versions of e-readers like the Kindle become more advanced, the
noise about the death of books becomes louder.

I liked this post from Daily Writing Tips


A reader says, I’ve always been confused on how to use the words empathize and sympathize in proper context.

For about 300 years, English speakers didn’t have to choose between sympathize and empathize to express the idea of sharing another’s feelings. Empa... Read more of this blog post »

A former boss told me that relationships only work if each partner gives 100%. I've thought about that statement about a million times over the past 22 years. Because I believed that statement is true, I've tried to give 100%, to most of my relationships. I say most, because not every b... Read more of this blog post »

This is a collection of short stories by the author of Native Son, which I’ve also read and rated highly. Wright (1908 – 1960) was an African American born dirt poor in Mississippi. His education was haphazard... Read more of this blog post »

Cover


Pretty plain cover. I appreciate it because it’s one that doesn’t have a girl in a dress on the cover, even though it could with this story. It’s nice to see something simple.


Characters
