To Blurb or Not to Blurb: My Book Reading & Rec Policy

To Blurb or Not to Blurb: My Book Reading & Rec Policy

Aug 31, 2015

Sometime in the last year, the number of requests I’ve gotten to blurb or simply early-read books has gone up tremendously. For folks who can read a book in a three or four hour stretch, this may not be a big deal, but unless I’m in the midst of a gripping made-for-me book, it takes me a long time to finish things (and even then, bare minimum, it takes me...

Books You Should Be Reading: THE LIBRARY AT MOUNT CHAR

Jun 30, 2015

I want you to look at the cover of THE LIBRARY AT MOUNT CHAR. JUST LOOK AT IT. Anyone who says covers don’t sell books is lying. There’s a reason it’s the biggest marketing expense a publisher spends on a novel, and if they get it wrong, you may not be entirely fucked, but you will be put at a severe disadvantage. The cover was enough for me to...

As promised, here’s my slightly deeper reactions post to what I’ve...

Thoughts on That Controversial Awards Announcement…

Apr 5, 2015

So, that Tiptree list, amirite? (what, you thought there was another awards announcement I was interested in talking about? Silly rabbit!) I had a few people ask why MIRROR EMPIRE wasn’t on the Tiptree longlist, which is always awkward, when people ask why you weren’t nominated for something, because the short answer is always, “Uh, because...

Books You Should Be Pre-Ordering

Jan 26, 2015

It’s 2015 folks, and hot damn, does time fly. One of the fabulous things about being an author is that I get to see some books early, and tell you about THE BEST ONES. Plenty of studies tell me not to talk about these books before you can click BUY NOW HOLD IN MY HOT HANDS. But I know how important pre-orders are to first-week sales for authors and their...

As I’m bouncing up and down about MIRROR EMPIRE finally being back in stock at the distributor, here’s some other great titles I’ve enjoyed this year that YOU SHOULD BE READING: WAIT FOR IT WAIT YES THESE ONES:   CITY OF STAIRS By Robert Jackson Bennett Unless you live under a tree, you’ve probably heard me rant and rave about this...
