From: A NYC Werewolf: James and Lucy (Book One)

On October 7, 2015, I self-published a book of poetry with the help of a few friends who served as cheerleaders and accountability buddies. The book came as a surprise to many, though, because I did it in secret. Not the best marketing move--you're supposed to anticipate a book release with lots... Read more of this blog post »

The Janeite community was recently torn with the news that a new TV adaptation of Pride and Prejudice is in the works. It’s going to be a “dark” and “adult” interpretation of the novel, and I must admit I’m intrigued by the vision of the producers and what they intend to achieve. But, above all,...

2,500 words this weekend - not bad. And that includes the first draft of the end of the novel. I've always known how I want Okuda! to end, but it is good to have the final few paragraphs down on paper. It makes it easier to write toward that end.

Ah... so close to the final first draft...

Tom Perrotta Interview with Tom Perrotta
Fresh off the series finale of HBO's adaptation of The Leftovers, Perrotta is back with a look at sex and midlife second-guessing.

So the fun of the book is to take a middle-aged person and plunge them into what is a youthful world of dating and sex," he says....more
