Με την ιστορία αυτή θα ευαισθητοποιηθώ, και ξέρω καλά πως κάθε μέρα είναι κλεμένη από το θάνατο. Δεν είμαι διανοοούμενος, γράφω με το σώμα. Κι αυτό που γράφω είναι υγρή ομίχλη. Οι λέξεις είναι ήχοι μεταγγισμένοι από σκιές που διασταυρώνονται ανόμοιες, σταλακτίτες, δαντέλα, μετουσιωμένη μουσική ε... Read more of this blog post »

For those who don’t know, a blurb is the attention-grabbing summary on the back of a novel(la). If the blurb does its job, you’ll buy the book (or one-click in today’s terms) and start reading. Most authors will tell you that writing the book blurb is hell. You’ve put your blood, sweat, and tears...Read more of this blog post »

Last night, I unfriended and blocked a guy on Facebook over vaccination.* He wasn’t even too rabidly fundamentalist about the topic. Nevertheless, his way of arguing an anti-vaxx point of view had all the hallmarks of the widespread anti-vaxx disinformation strategy. Which is why I refuse to enga...Read more of this blog post »

Passion is overrated. “What? Okay Harv, now you’ve gone too far!!” Let’s be clear, here.
