This dude is hot.
If there is a God, I pray that he never lets me write a book like Transcendence.
And that's not a knock on the movie, it's a compliment actually.
A bit of background--I love Johnny Depp. I love him more than Brad Pitt and on par with Tom Cruise. He's sexy. He's funny. He's intellig...Read more of this blog post »

I am reaching a turning point in my rewrite! So far I have been tightening character motivation, fine-tuning my writing and working on character consistency which, while sometimes challenging, has only resulted in a few pieces getting cut or entirely rewritten. I have just hit the last chapter be...Read more of this blog post »

There are certain gifts that parents give their children that contain such overwhelming power in simplicity that they don’t even realize the impact of their actions at the time. The gift my mother gave to me was that she always read to me before bed. Our ritual was that she would allow me to pi...Read more of this blog post »

To all indie writers! Make sure you get your work taken down. There were two listings for Reckoning, and I made sure to get them taken down by using the Report Copyright Infringement button. They’ve already taken down the first listing, and I’m waiting on the second. Make sure your har...
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

To combat the summer madness, a couple of days ago my husband bought me a new game. Other than Civilization and The Sims, I haven’t played much of anything over the past year. When I had free time, I wrote, researched or read books. When I didn’t, I focused on the kids. It was as simple as that....Read more of this blog post »

It was good.
There was some kind of financial controversy involving the family that went over my head.
The most interesting fact to me was that Busy Phillips is the godmother of Matilda Ledger. We watched Phillips in Freaks and Geeks.

On July 31, 2005, my wife and I adopted a dog. It was not an easy decision. We had two cats at the time, and adding a dog to the mix was certain to cause some domestic unrest.
“I’ve had dogs before,” I told my wife. “They need a lot of attention and can be a lot of trouble.”
We were not planning...Read more of this blog post »
The past weeks have included a lot of ups and downs around our house. For those of you who remember when we got our puppy, Pilot, a few months back, it pains me to say that we lost him just a couple of weeks ago. He died, we believe, of a disease young dogs sometimes get. Fine one day … h...Read more of this blog post »

Writers are busy people. The amount of time required to sustain a writing career is something I underestimated when I jumped into self-publishing.
As a result, reading takes a backseat. So does being a reader.
What exactly does a reader do, you ask? Read books (duh), and also, leave reviews.
Ask a w...Read more of this blog post »

I haven’t been to Connecticut in over a year. I watch out the window as the plane descends over farmland and greenery and a line of bright yellow tractors and I think:OK, I’ve made it. I’m back.

Hi, everybody! I hope many of you have read my debut WHEN YOU ARE MINE. I have a slightly spoiler-ish treat for you today, so if you haven’t read yet, proceed with caution!

I interrupt this Monday to bring you some super exciting teasing.
Okay, so it’s kind of mean to go all, “I have a secret, neener-neener-boo-boo!” but I’m doing it anyway.
It’s been a whirlwind of a month here at Chez Emmie, but there are some exciting new things in the works that I can’t wait to...Read more of this blog post »
Een paar dagen lang probeer ik Erik te mijden, kom ik niet in zijn buurt en zorg ik ervoor niet met hem alleen in dezelfde ruimte te moeten zijn.
