K.S. Nikakis K.S. Nikakis's blog:
A common question on submission guidelines or in pitches is: 'Whose work is similar to yours?' or 'Whose work would yours sit next to on a book shelf?'. As a fantasy writer, it is tempting to respond with some mega-selling author such as Stephenie Meyer but in truth, my work is not like hers ...... Read more of this blog post »

Hari pertama bulan Januari. Musim dingin seharusnya berada pada puncaknya. Namun, tak ada awan, tak ada angin, tak ada kepingan salju berjatuhan.

Ladies and gentlemen, this is the title of the brand new book that I intend to publish in the coming months. It is totally unrelated to The Lost Words quadrilogy. Moreover, I am inventing a whole new genre. Fundark. Or grimfun. Yep. Now, as to our protagonist. Imagine the perfect hero: handsome,... Read more of this blog post »

It was with a heavy heart I learned of the shooting at Pilchuck High School, the second in a year not so far from home.

The young man who wielded the gun was popular, always smiling, always positive, with a loving family, and huge support of friends and tribal leaders.

What happened in his mind to... Read more of this blog post »

One of our favorite things about Halloween are the outrageous home decorations that seem to pop up out of nowhere. Every neighborhood has one of “those” houses; AKA the ones that seem to be in relent...

This essay was originally posted on Paranormal Authors & Romance That Rock.



One thing almost all post-apocalyptic fictional worlds have in common—aside from being places you definitely don’t want to live—is danger. Once the end of civilization happens, whether it’s due to nuclear warfare, ex...

Lady Of Fire


Bears repeating: If your writing is to hit the right note, allowing a reader to immerse herself in the story such that she develops the oh-so-lovely habit of giving in to just one more chapter, love on your edits. Embrace them. Feed them well. Give them plenty of exercise. And make sure they get...

All was quiet now, deadly quiet. You had to put your ear close to me to hear the one thing, the only thing that screwed up this silence: the crinkly sound of my hair and nails, continuing to grow, somehow. Even the crows had stopped echoing their calls between one and another. And yet, I was not... Read more of this blog post »

As writers, we want to make our characters as unique and interesting as possible. One way to do this is to give your character a special skill or talent that sets him apart from other people.

description







God was the source and center of this love.
You were the wish he wished in Babylon.
I was the soul he lost within the grove.

Some say that Huwa drove the man to move
Beyond the garden walls. Some say that none
Thought God the source and center of this love.

And once cast out they found an obscure trove... Read more of this blog post »

Constantine


Well that was disappointing…


So, I recorded and watched the pilot episode of Constantine, after looking forward to it for months. All I can say is… Meh . Which is too bad; so far this season, DC had been batting pretty good. The Flash got off to a good start, and so did Gotham . I had...

Yeah, it’s a waste of time. I promise any writer out there that Social Media is going to do very little to help you promote your work. Trust me. I’ve been at it for while (many years, less than some, more than most others).
