I'm glad you asked that!
The Books of Lost Knowledge are not a series in the sequential sense. They don't necessarily need to be read in any particular order, though there is a mystery in Shadow of the Mountains that won't be quite as mysterious to anyone who has read the other books first. Lost Knowledge covers all of the books that take place in this same world. They share some characters and a common mythology, but not an overarching plot.
Liminality is a sequential series, starting with The Medium, and it's actually going in a particular direction. Shadow of the Mountains covers some of the events of the end of The Medium, but from a different perspective and including a lot that was happening offstage, as it were. I've had several people tell me that they prefer to have read both to get the whole picture, but it's not necessary.(less)

You may lose motivation or confidence, or feel as though you have no good ideas, but a serious writer will continue to write, regardless. No one ever talks about banker's block or teacher's block; whatever your chosen profession, you continue to do it even when you don't feel like it. You keep going until it passes, because if you chose to be a writer, you know yourself well enough to know that your motivation will eventually return.
Recreational writers talk about writer's block, too, and I don't understand that. If it's something you do in your free time because you love it, and you don't love it any more, why keep trying? If you're one of those who only writes when feeling inspired, go do something else until your inspiration comes back. Read or learn woodworking or pick up a part-time job or volunteer somewhere. Inspiration comes from experiences.(less)

The years have passed, and voices slowly fade

from recollection, though not yet from dreams –

I know I heard you call me as I laid

myself beneath the flood of stars agleam

and closed my eyes, and listened in the dark

for some familiar tone, some sly remark.


I heard you in the silence of the night

and still I listened fiercely in the day,

for whispers come whene’er they may or might –

in the growling, ro...
