THE  MIRROR EMPIRE Gets a Shiny, Shiny Bad Ass Cover

May 12, 2014

Though I would not call it a LONG wait – as this deal was just announced in January - it felt like a long wait because things are moving along so fast (comparatively!) with THE MIRROR EMPIRE. But here it is, the epic fantasy I’m seriously hoping I had the chops to write (you should always be writing the book you don’t quite think you’re...

Jan 31, 2014

A lot of what people see of the writing life is actually the part that has nothing to do with writing actual novels. What you see are the blog posts, the tweets, the convention appearances, the book signing, the G+ hangout, the author D&D, the podcast, the workshop… all the stuff we do *around* the writing to draw *attention* to work which has already been...

On Fear of Failure and Writing “The Book”

I recently came back from the Wellspring Writing Workshop in Lake Geneva, WI. I got to spend a lovely week with a bunch of other writers – only one of whom I’d met before! – and talk shop and boat around on a lake (“We’re on a boat!”) and look at swanky stuff and ride bikes and read books and even play a card game or two.
