Jenna Moquin Jenna Moquin's blog:
It's been a good year for my writing career. I've had 3 short stories accepted, and on two of my recent rejections I was complimented on my style and encouraged to submit more. I also heard that Gone with the Wind was rejected 75 times before it was published, and that made me feel better about r... Read more of this blog post »

I gotta say, I’m reading the Author ARC and I’m blown away. Completely, totally, incredibly. This is so good, I want to lick it.

I’ve been emailed a bunch lately with questions asking me about Bean and Between Us And The Moon.

The Judge in McCarthy’s Blood Meridian is Satan. The book tells us so within the first few pages when he confronts a tent-revival preacher with a litany of false accusations. The reverend says,
