Isle of OZ -- An Accidental Adventure by R.T. Graham

At only 120 pages, R.T. Graham’s “Isle of OZ: An Accidental Adventure” is a short but delightful read punched up by plenty of humorous dialogue between two spirited strangers but complete opposites, Olivia and Zack, who end up stranded together—first on the sea, then on a small desert isle—after...

Bey Deckard Bey Deckard's blog:

One of my favourite parts about writing is naming my characters.

Baltsaros is the Greek version of Balthazar but has its roots in Assyrian—the name means “Baal protect the king”. Baal is associated with the god Hadad (god of storm and fertility) who was decreed a false god and where the Christian...

April 23rd is World Book Day. How many of you knew that? I confess I didn’t. I am guessing that it was not coincidental that this date was chosen to celebrate books, for it is the traditional birthdate and death date of England’s greatest playwright, William Shakespeare. For medieval events, Adel... Read more of this blog post »

(C) 2017 by S.Riley

First let's admit that man-made climate change is preposterous.

If the idea is not preposterous then why don't any ancient books mention it? It is not mentioned in the Bible, nor the ancient Greek authors, nor the Norse sagas nor Aztec inscriptions, nor old Chinese scrolls so fa... Read more of this blog post »

I have some reading to do this week.

In his excellent book On Writing: A Memoir of the Craft, Stephen King advises leaving a newly finished draft to sit for at least six weeks before you start revising. That way, you come back to it with fresh eyes and a ruthless pencil.

In fact, it has been abou... Read more of this blog post »

For those who've read at least as far as Sleight of Hand and Hidden Trump, here’s a two part scene I sketched out about Tullah's first meeting with Kaothos.

Joy is a muscular thing. It is an orientation of the heart, a reckless ride, a compass to get you out of the woods. And it is defiant.

Acts of joy push back at the world at large. And I do mean joy as an act, not just a feeling. We can feel helpless against injustice or famine or even our own emo... Read more of this blog post »

Io non sono felice, mai. Neppure quando sono felice. Niente, nemmeno una volta, dissolve l'Ombra. Ma il mondo tracima di criminali e la Vita non propone, in nessun caso, nulla di ragionevole. Dunque il silenzio è un modo di vivere anche ciò che non sono. Per questo ne creo tanti.
