A certidão de registro do meu livro A fada desencantada finalmente chegou! Eu chamo essa certidão de “direitos autorais” porque é o que é na prática!
Agora vocês podem me plagiar a vontade, já que isso significa uma grana extra para mim vindo diretamente de um processinho!

In between writing sessions, Christopher will sometimes do an art project to clear his mind. His most recent artistic endeavor is to shade the drawing Arya Assails Shruikan from The Official Eragon Coloring Book, and he documented the process via time-lapse.

Ini memang agak memalukan: saya nyaris tak tahu apa-apa tentang kesusastraan negeri-negeri tetangga. Hanya satu-dua novel dari Malaysia saya baca, sisanya nyaris tak ada yang saya tahu tentang kesusastraan Thailand, Filipina, Vietnam atau lainnya. Tentu saja ada sejenis rasa penasaran, rasa ingin...Read more of this blog post »

One of the things I enjoy in a good book is learning what the characters love (or hate) to eat. Who wouldn't want to feast with Hobbits or sample Willy Wonka's peculiar sweets? As a writer, I love feeding my characters interesting dishes--some real (such as the hot... Read more of this blog post »

The pictures have nothing to do with the book reviews. They are of products we buy in Europe that we don’t find in the States.

[image error]I love talking about my books and my writing. And it’s so nice when friends, family, readers, and others ask for details.
But there’s one question that comes up over and over that I simply don’t know how to answer. It usually comes up in that quiet time after the flurry of releasing a...Read more of this blog post »

I have just finished writing Book 5, Angel Blessed, the final book in my Angel Caste series and I do not feel relieved and I certainly do feel like celebrating. I feel sad, bereft and lonely. It's like my best friends have gone overseas, or worse still, died.

So I was on Twitter yesterday (my first mistake) and I came across this gem by an actual literary agent with an actual literary agency.
Delete all the adjectives and adverbs from your book. All of them. Get rid. Your book will read better, and be more appealing, as a direct result.

For the last few years, I’ve been sharing H. P. Lovecraft’s strange yuletide poetry here on the blog. Since we’re in the middle of the 2017 Holiday Season (you can tell because it’s snowing), I figured it’d be fun to revisit his poems and collect them into a single place. So sit back, pour yourse...Read more of this blog post »

And that’s really hard. The house feels so empty. It still looks like two people live in it. I’m clockin...

Nominations are now open for the Dragon Awards. These awards are open to anyone to vote for, and the more people get involved, the more legit the award.

Well, I don’t really hate my camera. I actually love it. I just hate the selfies it takes. They’re awful – make me look tired and old. From what I read, I’m not alone in selfie-hate.

Ever wonder what it would be like to live 40,000 years ago in The Pleistocene Ice Age? Yes, it would be cold, but certainly not dull.

I’ve been putting off writing this post for the best part of this last year.
