Claire Cook Claire Cook's blog:


I gave each book in the Must Love Dogs series just enough backstory that you can dive in with any book you’d like. But in case you’ve only seen the movie starring Diane Lane and John Cusack and haven’t made it to any of the books yet, I’m including the beginning of Must Love Dogs (#1) below. Ha...

Scott Adams Scott Adams's blog:

I have a hypothesis that many voters have already voted against Trump – in their minds – months before the first absentee votes are cast. The way that works is that a pollster calls someone who is considering voting for Trump – perhaps the week after the Khan controversy – and that voter decides...

J.L. Rallios J.L. Rallios's blog:
When I was a child, my grandma would often complain about the poor quality of the merchandise that was sold in stores. And that was around 40 years ago. If she were still here with us today, I can just hear what she’d say now! But back then, I couldn’t understand why she would be so upset. I was... Read more of this blog post »

Michelle Path Michelle Path's blog:
It is my pleasure to introduce you all to my new children's book Cody the Pony. Being horsey and owning horses of my own as well as being an author, I always said I would not write a horse book as this would be the obvious thing to do. But after a lot of persuasion from friends, I decided to give... Read more of this blog post »

The scripture for today, August 28, is Romans 8:28 as found in the New Testament of the Bible:

"And we know that in all things God works for the good of those who love him, who have been called according to his purpose."

This is a favorite verse of many people. Notice, God can make all things work... Read more of this blog post »

Contacted my designer for a new cover for The Underground. Actually, it'll be a lot like the old cover, except better rendered. Jeez, that old cover is horrible! I just couldn't make those people understand what I wanted. Hmm...kind of like the first cover for The Moreva of Astoreth.

So I sent the... Read more of this blog post »

The other day, I came home to find a fresh wound on Milo's cheek about half the size of a dime. I'm not sure what happened that day, but Zailey was the natural suspect. For one thing, the two have been playing pretty rough lately. The other thing was that both dogs were wary of the other when I l... Read more of this blog post »

..so let's get to it, shall we? And let's do it by the numbers.

1. I wrote something new. I hadn't planned on it. In fact a failed two-week writing retreat in July made it clear to me that I wasn't ready to write anything at all now, and wouldn't be for a while. Then an email reminded me that I'd...

Love's Dull Edge--the title wasn't easy to come up. But the story is about the raw pain Reid is still going through. He's never really gotten over the sudden change in his life as a child when his mother dies seemingly leaving him abandoned. His separation from his sister scares him as well and h...

A short while back, when my first book The Darkest Hour came out, The Wall Street Journal compared my writing to the movie directors Alfred Hitchcock and Carol Reed.

Now please, let me tell you this, I’ve been lucky enough to get some good reviews over the last few years, but being compared to th... Read more of this blog post »

Recently, a young friend of mine asked me at the tail end of an email for my thoughts on creativity and spirit. I thought, “You have got to be kidding.” But I wrote back and asked if she wanted me to do a blog post, or could we save it for a conversation when I see her at Christmas (desperately h...
