La emblemática librería de Casa del Libro Gran Vía 29 de Madrid cerrará temporalmente sus puertas el 22 de febrero por una renovación de sus instalaciones. No sé si la conocéis, pero yo personalmente he pasado muy buenos ratos entre sus estanterías.

Normally, it’s done by putting the character’s thoughts in italics. A simple, elegant solution that readers understand because it’s done so often that it’s almost a rule.
Changing fonts and sizes of lettering in your manuscript can make navigating it easier for readers. Chapter and section heads, for example, often are boldface and use larger lettering than the main text, as this indicates shifts in topics. The size and typeface of any text is called a style, and...Read more of this blog post »
[image error]The prompt of this piece is the worst writing advice I’ve ever gotten. I’m gonna share that, but a little backstory first so you can understand why the advice was the worst!

“Hallucinatory…disorienting, destabilizing, and game-changing. I’ve never read anything like it.”1
“Successfully disguised as a page-turning thriller…also a deep meditation on marginalization, vulnerability, and resistance.”2

A double-length Ask Luna today. It’s a weird thought that I’ve been doing this for a hundred episodes. Back when I started, it was because Alex couldn’t be bothered to handle the Arcana Emporium email account and got me to do it instead. Since then we’ve gone from me working at the Arcana Emporiu...Read more of this blog post »

Black Panther is a rarity in the over-crowded universe of superhero film: a critical and commercial success. One is tempted to compare it to last year’s Wonder Woman: Both films revitalize a tired genre dominated by white male leads by exploring the possibilities of a diversity of protagonists.

February is almost gone, American politics are moving at warp speed, and I’m getting older by the second, which are coming at me a lot faster than they did when I was twenty. Time to slow down with a good book. What did you read this week?

[image error]As an author, I get to make a lot of stuff up. Often it goes like this: Hot man. Perfect body. Perfect night. However, perfection is flawed. It’s not real. I mean, in my amazing fantasy world there is no tripping, falling, or embarrassing moments happening but in my real world, in yo...Read more of this blog post »
When I was an obsessive climber, Shropshire was just a corridor you went down to get to Wales. You turned right or left at Birmingham, depending whether you’d come north or south. The effect of blinkering yourself is that you accidentally save up unexplored territories. Whole areas of the country...Read more of this blog post »
Last fall, with only a few months left on my deadline for Cold and Hottie, my second-chance romance set in Jamaica, my characters stopped cooperating. They were still doing interesting things but I had no freaking idea why, because they wouldn’t talk to me.
That was a big problem. As a writing fri...Read more of this blog post »
"Why one writes is a question I can answer easily, having so often asked it of myself. I believe one writes because one has to create a world in which one can live. I could not live in any of the worlds offered to me ��� the world of my parents, the world of war, the world of politics. I had...Read more of this blog post »

Should-Read: Our social insurance state still (largely) presumes the stable two-parent family. In lots of ways it does not fit today's American society, in which men in divorce threaten to seek custody on the basis of their higher incomes and so get women to accept impoverishing negotiated settle...Read more of this blog post »
I’ve been back from the Gallifrey One convention for a couple of days now, and, despite jet lag, I’m managing to keep the feeling of it going in my heart.

In To Take a King, Nicolas Callon had no idea that his life was going to change the day he turned twenty five. He had simply been hoping to spend a little time with his best friend and secret crush Cooper Walsh. But nothing turns out like he had hoped. From in... Read more of this blog post »

I finished my slow binge of Altered Carbon on Netflix this week. Loved it. I loved the book to when I read it over a decade ago, but that was so long that apart from one or two standout scenes (the concealed mini guns in the hotel, for instance) I had pretty much forgotten everything. It wasn't a...Read more of this blog post »
One of my favorite things about myself is that I often become obsessed with certain subjects. I’ll do countless hours of research to learn more about these subjects, sometimes over the course of years.
For instance, some of my obsessions have included: color, clutter, the placebo response, the sen...Read more of this blog post »
Dear Elkhonon, a pleasure to have you with us. Let’s get out the gate by discussing how are new ideas born — for example, how exactly did you first think about writing your new book, Creativity: The Human Brain in the Age of Innovation?
