Wow.

That could really sum up this weekend. Not so much for attendance or crazy sales, or anything like that.

For our friends. The people we've known by sight and word, solely from photographs and sometimes misconstrued posts on Facebook. I learned something valuable while there:

The interview starts at about 1 minute in, and runs about 30 minutes.

This was recorded on Day 4 of ConVergence, earlier this month. (Which seems longer ago than that, already.)

Note: The following is written for hounds trying not to bay like the Baskervilles. It explores Aristotle’s philosophical conundrum: Can you self-promote your work without looking like you’re self-promoting your work? Heed, then, the “sound” of trees falling in the wilderness….

Kyle R. Sullivan Kyle R. Sullivan's blog:
I must thank all who support this book by rating or reviewing it. I’m honored and equally puzzled that it has such a divisive affect on the reading public. I would have thought that reading is a matter of preference. Certainly, nobody is forced to read a genre that is not in their taste, so it pu... Read more of this blog post »

The only positive aspect of having to be at home between 0800-1300 whilst awaiting a Sky engineer (or more likely a BT engineer on behalf of Sky,) is that I finally have some time to write something.

I've been writing inspirational Christian fiction, specifically Romance, for several years now.

I have no delusions of grandeur. No dreams of seeing my name and works on New York Best Sellers' list. But what I do have is a desire to write stories that will lift up Jesus, my Lord. I pray that He'l... Read more of this blog post »

Cărțile sunt o oglindă a lumii; chiar dacă imaginea reflectată poate fi distorsionată, totuși recunoaștem ceea ce vedem în jurul nostru. Unele cărți pun accent pe personaje și pe frământările lor, altele pe acțiune, altele pe descrierea lumii. După cum am subliniat mai devreme, Prima lege  este o... Read more of this blog post »

I think one of the most difficult things to reconcile between the Old Testament and the New is the idea of animal sacrifice. According to a passage in Josephus, the Passover sacrifice sometime between 66 and 70 involved the ritual slaughter of more than 250,000 lambs. I don't know that it is poss...

Ben Silver Ben Silver's blog:
Part of the appeal of the fantasy genre is that our heroes can have epic battles. They can do things we cannot and they fight for impossibly high stakes. When this is done right, it provides for a really unique type of escapism. Unfortunately, this is not very often done right.
Many fantasy fight... Read more of this blog post »

I pay an editor handsomely to read, re-read and clean up my books. I've done this since the beginning and am grateful every single day that I have.

The release date will probably be about... August 15th/August 16th.

I apologize for having pushed it back from July, but I have a valid reason.

The book is much longer than the original one. It's going to end up being between 110k-120k words.

Wild Wastes 1 was only about 90k.

Fresh off the series finale of HBO's adaptation of The Leftovers, Perrotta is back with a look at sex and midlife second-guessing. "I'm very interested in sex and the way that ideas about sex and what's permissible keep changing. So the fun of the book is to take a middle-aged person and plunge them into what is a youthful world of dating and sex," he says....more
