I wrote a book.
It's not a very long book, and it's not a novel. It's not even fiction. One chapter at the beginning needs to be written yet. I still have to add the illustrations.
Right now the hand-written (very) r... Read more of this blog post »
Amazon is a strange and wonderful book buying place. It seems that getting reviews on their site makes Amazon happy. And when Amazon is happy, they choose a book to include on their "recommended for you" lists that we get... Read more of this blog post »
So I decided to go back in the archives for today’s blog. I started this thing in 2005, which is hard to believe. But here’s the post from exactly nine years ago today. You’ll see that some things never change.

Hello all! I have been extremely busy lately. Between promoting my new book coming out and being in charge of book fair again, I feel like I'm running in circles. Not to mention the three books I'm working on! I know, I know...I can't ever do anything the simple way. Oh, did you notice that Hallo... Read more of this blog post »

All kinds of animations without noise and sound
But really actually very quiet without much fanfare
No golden spirits riding bulls dishing out thunder
You don't really ever see it the causes at all
Yet everyday events leading up in thunderous awe
Still we are standing... Read more of this blog post »

Once upon a time, I blogged every day of the week. It was partly a way to keep writing daily and partly an attempt to build an audience for my fiction. To varying degrees, I did both. I managed it for a number of years until I fell o...Read more of this blog post »
As Christians, when we hit a rough patch in our marriages or relationships, what is our first reaction? Do we blame the other person and spend all our time trying to fix them? Or do we rely on God’s commands to work in our own hearts and change our situation? In part 4 of our series Meant to Be,...Read more of this blog post »
Thank you to all those who entered the Name the Kittens competition. Christian, Verity and Joel could not believe how many names you came up with and it made the judging very tricky.
After going through the list a few times, the two names they agreed upon were Majesty and Portia, so congratulation...Read more of this blog post »
The theatrical poster is great…
I try to go into movies knowing as little as I can about them.
When I’m making a recommendation or looking to go to the theater with people, it’s strange how much the question “What’s that one about?” sets me on edge, irks me.
It probably shouldn’t, it’s a reasonable...Read more of this blog post »

Even though I started writing because I love reading, I haven’t been doing very much of that lately. I’ve also fallen way behind on New Adult releases, for two reasons: lack of time, and lack of interest. I have said before that many of the NA books I’ve read were horribly lacking and misleading....Read more of this blog post »
Suatu pagi, gw mendapat chat FB dari dosen di Binus. Terakhir kali liat Ma’am Wiwik itu, sekitar setahun yang lalu waktu gw iseng ikutan revisi skripsi cece gw. FYI, Ma’am Wiwik entah kenapa jodoh banget sama keluarga gw. Soalnya waktu skripsi gw maupun cece, pengujinya itu beliau.

Sometimes I forget that it’s all temporary.

It goes without saying that authors adore readers. Not just because they drive our book sales but because they inspire us in so many ways. Whether it’s great book discussions on twitter or awe-inspiring, witty book reviews on blogs, readers let authors know that all those countless, caffeine fue... Read more of this blog post »

As Americans we’ve been slow to come to grips with how much our country has changed, and with it, the degree to which being Bible-believing Christ-followers is increasingly socially unacceptable. I don’t mean we shouldn’t work to hold onto our religious liberties—of course we should. But likely...

And so another week passes.
The internet is growing to be a dangerous place, I think. In one week I’ve had three invitations per day asking me to give my money to people. Yes, they are casino operations, but I don’t care. These gambling sites are not designed to provide me with money, they are des...Read more of this blog post »
