Avalyn and Father Purgeon sat at the desk. The priest was still soaking in what she’d told him earlier. The cigarette buds in the ashtray had piled up. He lit another and looked over at Sarah, asleep on the couch. She looked peaceful. About as peaceful as a corpse, Father Purg... Read more of this blog post »
Hey everyone, this week I’m answering a question that has been posed multiple times. A lot of you want to better understand Cam and his actions, so he is the theme for today’s Q. Special thanks to Hope, Ashlea, Nick, and many others for asking!
Q: Did Cam ever really love Luce? What is Cam’s true...Read more of this blog post »
Apparently CNN—a sucky, biased, boring, news channel which is only watched in airports and doctor’s waiting rooms—has a website with blogs on it! Of course, their blogs are of the same high quality that we’ve come to expect from CNN on TV.
Recently I was able to participate in a Twitter fight with...Read more of this blog post »

The Super Spies and the Cat Lady Killer is a delightful YA mystery which has kept me entranced right from the very beginning. Yes, I know I hardly qualify as the target audience for this novel, but I forget my age when I read books. In many ways, The Super Spies and the Cat Lady Killer is like H...

Dearly Beloved You Guys,
My heart is overwhelmed by the amazing response I’ve been getting from the NYT piece. The stories you all are sending me about people and families succeeding, struggling, and living bravely with disability are both beautiful and truly humbling. I wish I could reply to ever...Read more of this blog post »

In case any of you enterprising and impatient cats are searching Amazon occasionally, don’t flip out when you see the product page for DUST. It’s just a pre-order page. The book will release on August 17th, which gives me plenty of time to write it, have it edited, and get the physical edition pr...Read more of this blog post »
I was born in the U.K., but made America my home in my early 20s. I paint and voice act for a humble living, the latter being the more humble. The reason being, the paintbox came first, the... Read more of this blog post »
I remember when they gave out the first RITA finalist pins — it was at the 2001 conference in Washington, and it was my first RWA conference, and my first book was a RITA finalist.
The pins were new and it was a surprise for everyone when, as we registered they gave them out. They gav... Read more of this blog post »
If you set your bar at "amazing," it's awfully difficult to start.
Your first paragraph, sketch, formula, sample or concept isn't going to be amazing. Your tenth one might not be either.
Confronted with the gap between your vision of perfect and the reality of what you've created, the easiest path...Read more of this blog post »

Summer movie blockbuster season has begun, and I admit it: I like a good summer blockbuster. Last weekend I saw both Star Trek Into Darkness and Iron Man 3. Basically, I heard that both movies featured potentially problematic villains, and I couldn’t resist comparing them. I’ve been thinking abou...Read more of this blog post »

Chattacon is as far as Atlanta, when you’re considering driving from where we are, in Spokane…and there aren’t roads between Here and some of There.

The Title Says It All
Don’t be put off by the silly cartoon cover. This cookbook has some serious meat!
Published by the editors of Glamour magazine (complete with a stick-girl drawing that makes Barbie look heavy), it’s easy to dismiss the collection as a guide to living and working in the big...Read more of this blog post »
Don't get me wrong- I love the pink. The pink stands out. It's bubblegum sweet. It screams "eighties" to me.
BUT... The pink looks YOUNG. As adorable as i... Read more of this blog post »

As the guy who wrote Uglies, there are certain kinds of news stories that are forwarded to me by everyone. Hi-tech tattoos, bizarre plastic surgery, stuff that hovers, and of course anything having to do with beauty. So it was no surprise that a recent story about the Miss Korea contest flooded m...Read more of this blog post »

Update 2: Never mind. Ignore the messages. A few months ago I was exploring options to change the method of email delivery of the blog posts and tried a phpList hosted account. It didn’t work out, but I kept it as a back up, because the Feedburner days are numbered. Apparently they decided to sen...Read more of this blog post »

… for being AWOL most of this week! I’ve been hunkered down with revisions for the Victorian Book (aka Stand Alone #2), which comes out next spring.
I’ll be posting more about that here on the website by and by, but if you want to hear about some of the background for the book (and see some prett...Read more of this blog post »
In the middle of second-pass revisions for Wayfarer, the second Beauty & Madness. I finished this book during the nightmare of buying a house and having everything that could possibly go wrong…go wrong. It’s odd to read it now and remember how I was feeling when I wrote a particular scene, c...Read more of this blog post »
