Welcome back. This week, I am recommending 8 books if you enjoyed reading/watching the Lord of Rings.
Comment down below what book recommendations I should do next.

Cargo Bike Update I wanted to give a cargo bike update as the kids are bigger and we’ve changed locales. For reference, we got our Yuba Long Tail Cargo Bike in the spring of 2016 when the kids were 6, 3 and 1. That first summer I had all three kids on the bike. It

I cannot emphasize how eye-opening Adam Golaski’s work was for me. I wouldn’t dream of comparing my writing to his, but I felt a kind of symmetry on my first reading “The Animator’s House”. It felt as if I’d stumbled across a writer far more skilled than I, but was interested in following non-tr...
I was busy this past weekend and now I’m at camp, so I had to schedule all of these posts on time so as not to leave y’all hanging, and I just so happened to be tagged this weekend as well so I had a nice easy post to whip together at 6:45 in the morning before I spent the day hanging out at a ma...Read more of this blog post »

Because of that I thought I'd revisit the back story to this novel. It is not the most professionally edited (I freely admit) and this can be... Read more of this blog post »
I used to think the three-act structure was bullshit. I know how, however, that I only felt that way because I struggle with abstract concepts. It took me several years, numerous craft books, and a lot of practice to wrap my mind around the classic three-act structure. The fact that I was attempt...Read more of this blog post »

Het lijkt soms alsof er nog maar weinig contemporary YA-boeken verfilmd worden. De focus ligt vaak enorm op dé nieuwe dystopische franchise of dé te gekke fantasyhype en maar weinig op goede moderne tienerfilms. Jazeker, deze zomer hebben we Love, Simon en onlangs draaiden flicks als Midnight Sun...Read more of this blog post »
Whether you’re an introvert or extrovert, loud or quiet, excited or even-keeled, having confidence is vital to succeeding in business, in entrepreneurship and in life. My mom, Darlene, is a great example of this. She’s confident enough to speak up for herself and stand for what is right. Her conf...Read more of this blog post »

To be honest, at first I didn't intend to write a sequel to Doomware. The ending was supposed to be abrupt and ambiguous, leaving readers to decide in their imaginations what happened next. It also seemed, for really the first time since I'd started writing novels, that somehow I'd been "channell...Read more of this blog post »

You would think writers would love their work. We sit for hours and hours holding pencil or pen to paper, or sitting in front of our laptops, or holding a microphone to our mouths weaving plot and character together to hopefully create story.
Yet, writers are first to degrade their o...Read more of this blog post »
I used to write letters all the time. I had a pen pal in England. I wrote letters to relatives, to friends from out of state, to President Richard Nixon – long before Watergate, and he sent me black-and-white prints from his trip to China. It was no big deal. I would just sit down, […]

Agent 355 plays a major role in my novel, The Hidden Side, but who was she besides an elusive and mysterious historical person?

Acabo de volver del Celsius 232, una convención de fantasía y ciencia ficción, quizás la más conocida o una de las más conocidas de España. Me lo he pasado bien, pero ha supuesto un reto personal. Escribí un artículo hace años, y se lo he vuelto a decir a muchas de las personas que he […]

I’m not sure which is stranger
Or which would lead to more danger,
But is it your bitter sympathy
Or my twisted philosophy
That with all the broken ends,
We could never make amends?

There’s something happening here.

The beginning of blessedness—and the beginning of real change—is not in realizing that we are okay, but in realizing that we are not okay.
It is not in becoming convinced that we are superior to everyone else, but that we are no better than anyone else.
It is not in believing that we are strong and...Read more of this blog post »

My reading style has changed greatly in the past few years.

Though the Western is the only genre uniquely set in North America, it has diminished in U.S. fiction. Only a few American films and novels of recent decades depict the late 19th century period of colonial expansion across the so-called frontier.
