It is not an easy task, the marketing of one's novels. And while I wish I were instead spending the hours completing Elke's Magic. that will just have to wait. It is far more important now to focus on getting the other two novels out there and into people's hands.

It is a living, breathing being,... Read more of this blog post »

The Fireman is a post-apocalyptic novel, where the culprit is a spore called Dragonscale (a bit of a Game of Thrones ripoff for the name although the disease is far different). Dragonscale causes those who carry it to light on fire under stressful conditions and propogates itself by transferring... Read more of this blog post »

All of that alpha protector instinct and a lot of deadly skills, combined with a world-weary hardness that comes from time spent fighting in a war.

Dear Ms. Whitman,

I ran across something in one of my old travel journals yesterday, and it made me think of “The Store.”

I was not yet a published writer when I backpacked through Europe for the second time in 1986. I ran out of money in Paris (which puts me in good company, I suspect), and slept... Read more of this blog post »

I'm glad to see the return of short stories and the development of flash fiction for many reasons. One of these is that I write both so I won't pretend to be unbiased here. But the major reason for loving this development is it expands the kind of reading available.

I love novels but it is great b... Read more of this blog post »

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
