Greg Strandberg Greg Strandberg's blog:
I’m real thankful for the readers I have. Several of the books I have on this site are rated well. I don’t have any bad reviews, really. What’s more, many of my books are marked as ‘to-read’ by many people.

So that feels good. I’m very lucky to have a job as a writer where I can stay home and writ... Read more of this blog post »

As I've written before off and on, I've had my own experiences with clinical depression, including suicidal thoughts. Desires, even. Before I got help and found a regimen that worked for me, it got bleak sometimes. Sometimes for long times. People who've had, or are now having, a depressive episo... Read more of this blog post »

Hey guys, BFM is up for Dabwaha again, so if you could find a moment to vote, we’d appreciate it. :)


So. Four out of five beta readers had an issue with a plot twist in Magic Shifts, which means we didn’t really sell it well. Now we have to edit it out. I love the plot twist. It was my precious. It...

Julius Thompson Julius Thompson's blog:
Novels are driven by incredible scene construction!
How a writer handles scenes will make a difference between a manuscript that sells, and one that ends up in the slush pile or the author receiving a rejection letter via email or in the mail.
A scene is a unit of drama in a novel.
The concept... Read more of this blog post »

Linvin stumbled through the wood as daylight arrived to show him the way. With every step, Linvin knew he was a little bit closer to being able to put the heavy carcass down.

Niltze fellow readers and friends. So I've had writer's block for over two months, maybe more.
