Camp NaNoWriMo – Day 3

I had a good day on Friday. I wrote up several scenes, mixed them about a bit, and added some new material. It was also the first job of the day, and this time I didn’t spend all day about it.


There’s a rather nifty new gadget on the NaNo website whereby you can time your writing. I gave it a go, set

Eating Purple Peas

I fell in love with purple peas two years ago at Monticello, where the pea was Thomas Jefferson’s favorite vegetable. He had his slaves plant every variety he could get his hands on. I didn’t taste the purple peas; I only saw them growing in Monticello’s restored garden. With their lovely pink-and-v

Don’t Confuse a Book Endorsement With a Review

By Sandra Beckwith


In recent conversations with authors, I’ve noticed that several use the terms “book endorsement” and “book review” interchangeably.


That’s not a good idea.


In the book publishing business, they have different meanings and purposes. Using them incorrectly could confuse the people supp

Everyone is late sometimes. We might be always on time for work, but always late when meeting friends. Or always late for family parties but always on time otherwise. Even people who are late 99% of the time can make it on time to an important job interview or court appearance.

Every year, I track my reading, keeping a list of books I finish, books I put down unfinished, what I liked, and what I didn’t.

Tana French Interview with Tana French
Dublin crime novelist Tana French has the kind of critical reviews that other writers would…well, die for. Her debut murder mystery, In the Woods , won rave reviews and multiple literary prizes upon its release in 2007. Since then, her books have tended to haunt the bestseller lists, on both sides of the pond, and for months at a time. British newspaper The Independent has dubbed French "The First Lady of Irish Crime," and The Washington Post says she is the most important crime novelist to emerge in the past ten years. ...more
