Blog Stats: What Being Newly-Kinda-SF-Internet-Only-Famous Looks Like

Dec 29, 2014

You know when you’re sitting there listening to a song, and it hits the rock-out chorus part, and suddenly you feel alive, you feel invincible, like anything is possible? That’s what reading a great essay should be like. A story that moves you to action. And that’s all blog posts are, really, the good ones: essays that inspire the hell out of...

THE HURLEY ARCHIVES: Archiving Papers at NIU

THE HURLEY ARCHIVES: Archiving Papers at NIU

Nov 25, 2014

So this summer I was approached by a couple of folks asking about archiving my papers. This was, as you’d imagine (especially those of you who’ve been reading this blog for ten years) a rather surreal experience for me. The first time I thought it was a fluke. The second time, I was genuinely confused. Who would be interested in this stuff, really?...

I’ll Sleep When It’s May: Stop. Drop. And Write.

I’ll be in stealth mode throughout April this year. I’ve got edits due on THE MIRROR EMPIRE and a writing retreat later in the month exclusively dedicated to burning through pages on book 2, and the last thing I need to be doing when completing loads of work is chatting with other humans, even and especially on the internet.

UPDATE: Due to the overwhelming response, I’m not longer accepting applications while I sort through emails. Thank you! I’ve been putting off my growing need for an assistant for a long time, mainly due to money issues, but with more freelancing work coming in and a desperate desire to finish this next book so ya’ll will actually see a new...

On Hiatus – But Probably Still Alive

Oct 4, 2012

It occurred to me today that I’m dangerously close to burnout, and as I’m about to head down the rabbit hole with RAPTURE promo in early November, now is probably a good time to take a break from being social and actually knuckle down and get to work. I’ve managed to get really far behind on projects. If you start spending too much time on stuff like book...
