Writers of the “Current”

I recently spent a week in Los Angeles at the Writers of the Future workshop, blogging daily for them and generally having much fun. Part way through it, Galaxy Press asked if I would do individual capsules on each writer. I loved the idea, so I said “sure!” Those went over well enough that they […]

Big Little Lies

So, Lisa and I binge watched HBO’s Big Little Lies the past couple days. It’s a good story. You should watch it too, if you haven’t already. But beyond that, it’s an interesting piece to me specifically for the fact that it addresses plot out of order (well, that and the fact that it utilizes […]

Stealing the Sun, Book 5!

I’m terribly pleased to note that Starbound, the fifth book of the Stealing the Sun series, is now available at online retailers near you.

An Interview goes live!

Fun stuff today … an interview I did with Tracy Cooper-Posey is live this morning. You can find it here! I met Tracy at a workshop last October, and was immediately impressed with her overall approach to her work and her business as an independently publishing writer.

Stupid Question #37

Recently another writer asked me (via email) how do I know my stuff is good enough for  anyone to publish? She labeled the email “Stupid Question #37.” Rather than being a stupid question, it’s one that cuts to the heart of what it means to write. No one wants to pour your heart onto the […]
