This Sunday, my blog is fueled by Dunkin Donuts coffee and a dear friend of mine who engaged me in a conversation about inspiration.

This dear friend of mine is a writer and a talented one at that. She had been working on the same "saga", as she calls it, for an eternity and was ready to move on... Read more of this blog post »

Picture How Manuscript Gremlins Breed: 11 Potential Errors
by Ally Shields


I've just completed several rounds of edits, copyedits and galleys. If I've learned nothing else, I'm convinced manuscript gremlins, those pesky little errors, creep in and breed when you're not looking.... Read more of this blog post »

Comic: Have you seen my camera tripod…?

Yes, this really happened. About a month ago, I got really into unicorns (don’t ask me why) and kept sending Ryosuke funny pictures of unicorns and animals pretending to be unicorns. And now he sometimes pretends to be a unicorn by taping/tying things onto his forehead. Like my camera tripod. Read more of this blog post »

11th of 274 for $2,433 on $580 buy-in, but went out with A9 vs. A6 (6 on the river). Otherwise, would have had above average chip stack and realistic shot at $32k. Oh well. Didn't play in Main. Next time.

It was well over 200 years ago now that Jeremy Bentham asked about animals, “The question is not, ‘Can they reason?’ nor ‘Can they talk?’ but ‘Can they suffer?’” It was a rhetorical question even then. Obviously animals can suffer; obviously animals feel pain.

Post image for How to Build Your Own Media Kit—Free Webinar Monday with Joan Stewart

Here’s a fact: most indie-published books sell poorly because they’re not seen by nearly enough people to be successful. It takes lots of people reading, enjoying, and recommending a book before it will start to get the attention it needs to grow a large audience.

Here’s another fact: most indie...
