If I'm stuck, it usually means I've gone off course in the story, and if I can pinpoint where I messed up and fix it, the blockage usually resolves. But generally speaking, if you're just feeling creatively strangled, writing for pleasure or working on another project can help. It can also help to ask friends, family, or colleagues for help resolving a thorny plot problem. Or sometimes getting away for a bit, taking a shower or a walk, can shake a solution loose.(less)

There's no guarantee you succeed, but of the writers who did make it, they all have one thing in common.

They didn't quit. So believe in yourself (even if no one else does) and keep writing. (less)

I was fortunate to be asked to blurb this gorgeous novel. There are books that make you think and books that make you feel.

This one is a rare bird; it is both.

Ann Aguirre Head over here to watch the trailer for Bronze Gods. http://www.goodreads.com/videos/41600...

Comment for a chance to win a signed copy of Bronze Gods! (This is one of my books; I wrote it with my husband.) If you like steampunk fantasy, check it out.


Christian Will we see more of Thimble and Stone? I was more engaged in their story, than the two main books.

So far no. Maybe someday. :)


Lyndsey I was wondering if any studios have shown interest in optioning the rights to the Sirantha Jax series. It would be great to see a movie but even better would be a TV series, especially since the absence of shows like Battlestar Galactica, Stargate, and Lost. Just curious! She'd be perfect to base a show around.


Belinda Kroll I love the covers of your Sirantha Jax books. I've always thought they were lovely and I just wanted to let you know!
