از طرفي از دنياي پشت صحنه ي کتاب در ايران خسته ام. شايد فکر کنيد من چرا؟ مگر کتابهاي علمي مسئله سازند؟ ميگويم. بله ولي نه از آن زاويه اي که شما حدس ميزنيد.
تنها هستم. نويسنده و مترجم و ويراستاري که عاشق کارش و آموزش به مردم و دانشگاه و کتابهاي موفق دنياي بدون مرز بيرون از ايران باشد، تنها ميماند.... Read more of this blog post »

Why did I write a novella sequel to The Life You've Imagined?

Because I've missed you. I've missed you greatly, dear readers.

For various reasons (a topic for another day) it's been a little while since The Whole Golden World, and it will be a while yet before I have another novel to share with you... Read more of this blog post »

Saturday afternoon, I finished The Sweetest Burn, book two in the Broken Destiny series. I've said before that my two favorite words to write are "the end" even if I know that it really only means "take one" because there will be revisions.

With the recent push to ban feline declawing in some areas of the United States, a proper understanding of the highly controversial procedure becomes absolutely necessary.

First of all, why would anyone declaw a cat? Cats scratch. They possess scent glands on their paw pads and scratching allows t... Read more of this blog post »

I want you to look at the cover of THE LIBRARY AT MOUNT CHAR. JUST LOOK AT IT. Anyone who says covers don’t sell books is lying. There’s a reason it’s the biggest marketing expense a publisher spends on a novel, and if they get it wrong, you may not be entirely fucked, but you will be put at a se...

Then Lee Goldberg stopped writing them after quite a few, and Hy Conrad took over. I may have just read the final book of the series,...
