Amy Lane Amy Lane's blog:
So, I had a series of e-mails with my editor and beta reader today.

"I'm almost done. Can it be 65K?"

"No! 60K."

"I think that could work. Maybe I can do a novella afterward. Would that be okay?"

"Sure. Not a problem."

"Okay. So, by the end of this week."

I had the same conversation with my beta reade... Read more of this blog post »

Vicki Lane Vicki Lane's blog:

Back on Saturday John and I had a visit from a woman who'd been a student of ours when we taught at Independent Day School in Tampa back in the early Seventies.  
Alicia had been one of a pair of girls that I admired deeply for their creativity and high spirits. I connected with both these ex-stu... Read more of this blog post »

Hey everyone! The Demon Cycle has a LOT of characters and a LOT of complicated relationships between them. It’s one of the reasons I love it so much.


That being said, Jardir’s family tree can sometimes get confusing. Peat already posted this on Twitter, but I thought I’d go ahead and post this h...

books i read in 2016-2017 : replica by lauren oliver




A strange and baffling truth: that the people we’re supposed to know best can turn out to be strangers, and that near strangers can feel so much like home.

Coloring book by Gretchen Rubin

As I may have mentioned once or twice, I’ve become obsessed with the subject of color — and I’m also a big fan of coloring.


So I was thrilled to get the chance to design my own coloring book, which goes on sale today: The Happiness Project Mini Posters: A Coloring Book of 20 Hand-Lettered Quotes t...

That’s right, I have TWO books out today, books that are about as far apart as a reader can get. In addition to Anatomy of Innocence (below) today’s the publication of the trade paperback of The Murder of Mary Russell!



Enjoy!

Oh, let's (please) take a break from pondering our current crisis of civilization, and the now explicit war on science. Instead, this time, let us turn our heads to ponder the wonderful cosmos that our children will explore... if we manage to keep a great and brave and thoughtful civilization.

Jim C. Hines Jim C. Hines's blog:

A while back, I posted something on Facebook about a rejection I’d received on a project. I was a bit taken aback when several people offered to “have a talk” with the editor. Others questioned the editor’s mental health for rejecting a Jim Hines story. It was flattering, in a way — I love that I...

Yeaaaaaaaaah. So my PA suggested I re-trace my steps in marketing and try stuff again.

On the other hand, the tremendous mess that is my Goodreads history is just blah. With THAT blargle noted, it's time. It. Is. Time.

Time to reset the hell up.

Sarah  Key Sarah Key's blog:
To be a writer I am of the firm opinion that one also needs to be reader. We are members of a storytelling species. We tell tales and we like to hear them told. Reading feeds writing and vice versa. In order to appreciate your own craft, it helps to consider others’ and reading is so wonderfully... Read more of this blog post »

Do you hear that? It’s the sound me of pushing publish for Greer’s book. Unlike Train’s book I’m glad to get out it of my head and onto your kindle. It’s not been easy living with that a**hole.

I think Greer is going to be a man you’re going to love to hate... or is it hate to love? I’ll let you a... Read more of this blog post »

I'm happy to announce that Rose's Rage is now on sale.

It's the 11th volume of the Mountain Man Series.

Usually I have to upload a book when I publish it, but I was saved the effort this time when someone marked it as "currently reading."

Alas, they didn't much like it and gave it a 2-star review.

If you'd like to see a study in tension-building, please watch Sicario, directed by Denis Villeneuve. The first time I watched it, I couldn't remember anybody's name, or how the plot had progressed, even directly after finishing it, but the consistent tone of tightness or tension left its mark on...

I just finished a novella by George Eliot, The Lifted Veil, and amongst the many quotes I marked this one stood out the most:


“You will think, perhaps, that I must have been a poet, from this early sensibility to Nature. But my lot was not so happy as that. A poet pours forth his song and believes...

Outdoorsman Poetry and Photography in Nature


Nature is the supreme art. It is a masterpiece written in verdant leaves, drawn on crisp earth, and sung by all life breathing in the wild—a magnum opus cycling through spring, summer, autumn, winter, and back to spring again. But though such splendor surrounds us, it is made mute by the mundane...

The city of Harath had become a place of shrouds. Black curtains hung in every window and black flags flew from every tower. There was no sound of music or merriment, and despite the late hour there should have been revelers. Harath was known for producing the finest wines on Other Place, a fact...

And not focused on fear or harming anyone or anything.
