If you’ve been in the traditional publishing arena the last five years, you’ve witnessed major houses merging to share resources (and shave those pesky overhead costs), while other publishers have closed their doors completely. Small presses have flown in faster than buzzards in a zombie apocalyp...

Mom was up wandering most of the night so everybody is exhausted. And we’d be exhausted...

I don’t watch much TV. I know, lots of people say that and don’t really mean it. But seriously, nowadays I watch a couple of hours a week, tops. It’s not that I have anything against television; I just don’t have time for it. Day job, writing, kids, daily walk… you know how it goes.
