• A promise to my readers

    January 19, 2015

    I’m sure everyone has heard about the disturbing events of this last October, so we definitely don’t need to rehash that. Those cases were extreme and rare, probably once-in-a-lifetime occurrences. But the unfortunate reality is that—even if it’s not to the same extent—reviewers being confronted by angry authors is a common problem that does not seem to be going away. For every group of authors that stands in solidarity with…

  • Top 10 Most Influential Books

    January 8, 2015

    A while back, I got tagged in one of those memes that was floating around: the top ten books that have stayed with you over the years; not necessarily your favorites, but ones that influenced you.

I’ve been doing some fun stuff behind the scenes, and I’m excited to tell…

  • FiYoCrapMo

    November 12, 2014

    Even though I’m a writer, I can’t really hang with NaNoWriMo. I just can’t write that fast, I always wind up getting burnout. During the summer, I do like to do Camp NaNoWriMo, which lets you set your own word count goal. I usually set it to a much more reasonable amount, like 10-20,000 words. Nevertheless, it’s hard to escape NaNo mania in November. But this time around, I saw…
