J.L. Greger J.L. Greger's blog:
If you ‘re always in a rush, maybe you should try reading short stories—literature for people on the go.

Short stories are difficult to define. In 1846, Poe defined a short story as prose fiction that could be read in “one sitting.” The problem is “one sitting” is probably shorter now than then. H... Read more of this blog post »

This is my fictional response to this article about James Patterson canceling a the release of a short novel called The Murder of Stephen King, which I only found out about today by chance on Twitter. This is clearly broad satire that sadly does use facts as a jumping point.

Readers often ask me where I get the ideas for my books. As many writers can attest, stories can come at us from many different angles. Sometimes it’s a snippet of a conversation we overhear that intrigues us. Every once in a while, we’re inspired in a general way by someone we’ve met. And freque... Read more of this blog post »
