For me it’s a writing day as usual but I wanted to stop and say yay for Australia. It’s a pretty good place to live. Sure, it has some issues and...Read more of this blog post »
In the quest to do things better and more efficiently, I’ve done some analysis of the year past to plan for the year ahead. One of the things bugging me has been the sales of my print editions. I’ve made them available to the widest number of portals, but that’s meant that the prices on the trade...Read more of this blog post »

The Bible is not a book. I know we talk about the Bible as if it is a book. I know we praise God for giving us his book. I know we tend to buy our Bibles from book stores. But it’s not a book. Not really. We’ve confused the nature of the thing with itsform.
The Bible is a collection. It is a colle...Read more of this blog post »

Supongo que a muchos se les habr� olvidado ya, si es que se enteraron. Por eso voy a hacer de aguafiestas, y recordarlo. Entre otras cosas, y m�s a menudo que muchas, el ser humano es cruel y es cobarde.

Brody “Brutus” Jackson isn’t your average small-town mechanic. The shop where he spends his days doubles as the headquarters for the mercenary group he works with. They jokingly call themselves the Bang Shift because the government contracts they take are the less savory ones, and they’re all jus...Read more of this blog post »

I just realized that I’ve been seeing a lot of contractor heroes in contemporary romances. I’ve actually thought of having a contractor hero in my books, but so far I haven’t. I wonder what makes them so attractive. Maybe the fact that they know how to use tools? If something breaks in your home,...Read more of this blog post »

I have news for you: as a writer, you are failing. And that’s fantastic! Okay, maybe not the “failing” part so much. But the fact that youknow you’re failing should have you break dancing in the living room. Why?

Let us go, my beamish boy,
When the sky cries forth the chortled joy,
Like a Jubjub in the tumtum tree.
Let us go, through certain half-deserted lands
The muttering demands
Of uffish thoughts on manxome foes besought
And seeking, seeking, yet only finding nought:
Lands that follow like a frumious bander...
