Guess what? Those two things in my subject line are one and the same thing! We have a new episode of the Narrative Breakdown up, which also happens to be a recording of a panel I mentioned many moons ago: me, fellow editor and publisher Stacy Whitman, and our authors Eric Gansworth and Joseph Bruchac, respectively, discussing their books If I Ever Get Out of Hereand Killer of Enemies, respecti...

Eh. Maybe it was because I saw the movie (which I liked), so I knew what was going to happen, but I read the entire first half of this, through the first half of the New Korea story, then decided I didn't need to read any more (though I did finish th ...more

I like about one verse novel every five years, and it looks like, for the 2010-2015 period, that novel is THE CROSSOVER. Smart, funny, great characters, great attitude, well-shaped verse, unexpected poignancy.... Though I think the thing I actually l ...more

Patrick O'Brian meets Smitten Kitchen in this tale of a chef who kidnaps a female pirate. My favorite adult novel of the year so far.

“A book is kind of like a good Horcrux, if we can imagine that -- a piece of the writer's soul, preserved in a physical object for all time, and changing the lives of all those who come in contact with it.”
Cheryl B. Klein, Second Sight: An Editor's Talks on Writing, Revising, and Publishing Books for Children and Young Adults

“This sentence has five words. Here are five more words. Five-word sentences are fine. But several together become monotonous. Listen to what is happening. The writing is getting boring. The sound of it drones. It’s like a stuck record. The ear demands some variety. Now listen. I vary the sentence length, and I create music. Music. The writing sings. It has a pleasant rhythm, a lilt, a harmony. I use short sentences. And I use sentences of medium length. And sometimes, when I am certain the reader is rested, I will engage him with a sentence of considerable length, a sentence that burns with energy and builds with all the impetus of a crescendo, the roll of the drums, the crash of the cymbals–sounds that say listen to this, it is important.”
Gary Provost

“And I urge you to please notice when you are happy, and exclaim or murmur or think at some point, 'If this isn't nice, I don't know what is.”
