روزِ گذشته خبری روی خروجی خبرگزاری مهر قرار گرفت که در آن، یکی از ناشرانِ نام‌آشنا و محترمِ کشور از ضرورتِ راه‌اندازی شبکهٔ تلویزیونی کتاب گفته بود. بسیاری پیش از این دربارهٔ اهمیت تلویزیونِ کتاب حرف‌ها زده‌اند و پس از این نیز سخن‌ها خواهند گفت. کما این‌که فشارها بر سازمانِ صدا و سیما این سازمانِ...

Jerry Jay Carroll Jerry Jay Carroll's blog:
Well, Patrick, don't say you didn't ask for it.

In 1941 time was running out for everybody. The Germans had to finish off the Russians before it was too late. The Japanese had to go to war before they ran out of oil. The English had to get us into the war before pressures beginning to build for a... Read more of this blog post »

Elissa Washuta Elissa Washuta's blog:
“Over the last seven years, as I have worked to write and revise my first book and then claw a second one out of my gut, I’ve heard too many times that any successful writing practice will involve a minimum daily word count, good and round, or a slavish devotion to page and screen, no matter the...

Ellen Kelleher Ellen Kelleher's blog:
I would have thought that several months later, Zebras of Hope would have fizzled out in the EDS community. Being a rare (or rarely diagnosed) disease, leaves the book with a small target audience. Yet, most days the book still sells.

I am grateful to Brad T. Tinkle, M.D. for sharing the informat... Read more of this blog post »

Alexandra Bogdanovic Alexandra Bogdanovic's blog:
I have got to stop watching the evening news. And listening to the radio. And reading the newspaper.
Twenty-first century journalism -- or should I say, what passes for journalism these days -- isn't good for my blood pressure. In fact, as a former reporter, it makes my blood boil.

description

Okay, odd topic, I know but interesting... I'm NOT looking for gross here, just words that creeped you out that you found written in a public bathroom. You know, like a truck stop.

I'll go first: "This could be your last memory!" That right there is a quickly-looking-over-the-shoulder sentence. I... Read more of this blog post »

While I normally use this space to re-post entries from my blog, this is just for Goodreads folk. So it won't be tarted up with photos or links. It's just me, typing away.

I've posted before about my Jill Emerson novels. There have been eight in all, the first seven appearing under that pen name,... Read more of this blog post »

I am so happy to be now reading my third book by Lyndsay Faye, "Seven for a Secret". I found Ms Faye by doing a search for Sherlock Holmes fiction.

I am a long time fan of the famous consulting detective, and after reading all the original Arthur Conan Doyle tales (over and over and over) I am co... Read more of this blog post »

Lawrence Ambrose Lawrence Ambrose's blog:

TELLS, you might call them. They’re the sometimes subtle – sometimes not so subtle – stylistic, grammatical, and format errors that cry out “Amateur!” to readers.


What’s insidious about amateurish writing, and what perhaps helps blindits practitioners to its presence, is that it isn’t always prese...

the smell was intoxicating
it drew me closer to where he lay
a shell of a person that I had once known
a trophy for me to love and to hold
silent lips of blue screamed loudly at me
I made love to his cold flesh that evening
not once did he say stop or go away
I took my life to be with him always
in death... Read more of this blog post »

Hey. I'm Tiffany Scandal and I'm a good-for-nothing broad.
