Fall, I've discovered, is the beginning of writing season for me. If such a thing can exist. Imagine. Seasons of writing. It's a pattern, the burst and then the lull. The somnambulant haze of the summer months when all I really want to do is play in the sun. I run wild in bare feet and short skirts, with the sun on my legs and my shoulders. The citrus-vanilla scent of sunscreen and the tender s... Read more of this blog post »

Teaser from the upcoming All This and Love (Science Fiction & Fantasy)
1 chapters   —   updated Sep 02, 2013 05:05PM
Description: Love is difficult enough without adding in zombies, werewolves, succubi, and ghosts. In my debut collection, love in many flavors takes center stage. From the catacombs beneath an unnamed city to an abandoned town after The End, lust, star-crossed romance, and sibling affection are complicated by some of the things that go bump in the night. And, maybe, an apocalypse or two. Here's a teaser from the title short... "all this, and love"

J. Libby is 90% done with Outlander: Admittedly, I just skipped over four CD's because this book is bloody long with a tendency towards the mundanely interesting.

I almost wish Beauty and the Blacksmith were a longer read. In fact, I think it really could have been. Diana Highwood really deserves a full-length story of her own, as does, Aaron Dawes, her hunky blacksmith beau. The disparity between the two make ...more

Once Upon a Winter's Eve is a quick, bon bon bite of Spindle Cove madness. Short and sweet with a dash of Dare's signature madcap flare, it was a nice way to cleanse my palette after the emotional devastation of Ender's Game.

Ishmael Reed
“No one says a novel has to be one thing. It can be anything it wants to be, a vaudeville show, the six o’clock news, the mumblings of wild men saddled by demons.”
Ishmael Reed, Yellow Back Radio Broke-Down

Robert Benchley
“It took me fifteen years to discover that I had no talent for writing, but I couldn't give it up because by that time I was too famous.”
Robert Benchley

Neil Gaiman
“I've been making a list of the things they don't teach you at school. They don't teach you how to love somebody. They don't teach you how to be famous. They don't teach you how to be rich or how to be poor. They don't teach you how to walk away from someone you don't love any longer. They don't teach you how to know what's going on in someone else's mind. They don't teach you what to say to someone who's dying. They don't teach you anything worth knowing.”
Neil Gaiman, The Sandman, Vol. 9: The Kindly Ones

Neil Gaiman
“There are so many fragile things, after all. People break so easily, and so do dreams and hearts.”
Neil Gaiman, Fragile Things: Short Fictions and Wonders

Richard Siken
“You’re in a car with a beautiful boy, and he won’t tell you that he loves you, but he loves you. And you feel like you’ve done something terrible, like robbed a liquor store, or swallowed pills, or shoveled yourself a grave in the dirt, and you’re tired. You’re in a car with a beautiful boy, and you’re trying not to tell him that you love him, and you’re trying to choke down the feeling, and you’re trembling, but he reaches over and he touches you, like a prayer for which no words exist, and you feel your heart taking root in your body, like you’ve discovered something you didn’t even have a name for.”
Richard Siken
