Terri Brisbin Terri Brisbin's blog:

It is such a good feeling when a book is released and it gets in the hands of readers. This project is near-and-dear to me since it involves a group of my friends who decided to create a project together. It’s been happening over a couple of years and now it’s here! Seven stories about seven gene...

Stephanie Burgis Stephanie Burgis's blog:

In the last five days, I’ve led two writing workshops of my own, taken my kids to two more workshops, had a fabulous castle adventure and gone to the cinema with them, and visited the Bristol Aquarium as a full-family trip. So in other words, it’s been an excellent set of school holidays for all...

R.C. Sproul R.C. Sproul's blog:

On October 31, 1517, Martin Luther nailed his Ninety-Five Theses to the castle church door in Wittenberg, Germany. “One hammer in the hand of an obscure Augustinian monk changed the world forever,” says Dr. R.C. Sproul. Five centuries later, Luther’s boldness for gospel clarity still echoes.

I am very keen to make reviews a prominent feature of the book promotions and encourage readers to review the books that they buy and enjoy, or not as the case may be. Word of mouth is still the most powerful marketing tool that… Read more of this blog post »

Ellen Huet, writing for Bloomberg, peeks in on the worklife of the people who backstop the bots by reviewing answers and frequently stepping in to provide their own. They are the “humans pretending to be robots pretending to be humans.”



Huet talked to people who filled this role at two services th...

I finally read the Hunger Games trilogy. After watching all four movies and getting caught up in the story, I wanted to see how the books held up. I wasn't disappointed.

In the movie, Peeta is a whiner. I could not understand how Katniss could ever have a moment's hesitation about picking Gale ove... Read more of this blog post »

Army and Shinto


Like many foreigners observing the Moritomo Gakuken scandal play out, I am fascinated by the interplay between Shinto, nationalism, and government. There are questions that come with the scandal: Why is it a problem? Why shouldn’t the school use the Imperial Education Rescript? Why is the worl...

Gretchen Rubin Gretchen Rubin's blog:

A note on a friend’s computer taught me a giant lesson about writing — and about life. Down with boredom. Whenever possible, skip the boring parts!


In writing all my books, if there’s an aspect of my subject that bores me, I figure out a way to write around it. And no one has ever seemed to notice...

For the past two years I've been collecting research for a new book, a Jazz Era book, based on the life of someone I can't stop dreaming about. She knew all the stars of that time. She was a star herself. And at one point, F. Scott Fitzgerald and his Zelda lived not far from her, shared meals wi... Read more of this blog post »

I drove myself crazy this morning trying to remember a phrase I'd once heard for a useless officer aboard ship (insert joke from all NCO's here). All my naval dictionaries and sources produced nothing except a lot of rude phrases not suited to the scene I was writing.

Yes, you read those words correctly, and I'm coming to terms with it. I've been abused, physically, emotionally and 'sensually'. I don't prefer the term sexually because it wasn't my case, I was never raped. Wow, what do you mean by tha... Read more of this blog post »
