Authors No Longer Have to Compete with Themselves

Used to be when I first published at Delacorte, one of the last things an agent or editor wanted was for an author to publish two books

at the same time. They called this splitting sales. In other words, by

publishing two books at the same time, an author ran the risk of

competing with him or herself.

Now, with the new indie publishing model, it seems that authors don't compete with themselves by

publishing more than one book at the same time, they simply get… Continue

My First Book and How Quickly Things Change

Guest Post by Leonardo Ramirez, Author/Creator of HAVEN

It’s been 60 days since the release of the graphic novel, “Haven” and while this is by no means meant as a brag or a cliché, I wanted to share some of the changes that have come as a result. I’ve been able to share

the infamous “folder of rejections” that I have at home which I’m saving for…

Packing for Magna--with Very Little Method

I've tried being organized, laying out things a week in advance in order to not be last minute about what I will take to a con. It never works.

Whatever I've laid out, a week, a day, or even half a day before will become my most hated items of apparel when the time comes to actually put them into a suitcase. "What was I thinking? Those pants make me look a mile wide!" "And that necklace never hangs right." "Those shoes are sure to hurt after an hour."

Better to wait until an hour… Continue

Review: "South of Shiloh" by Chuck Logan

Minnesota crime author Chuck Logan came up with the biggest jerk of a protagonist ever in "Absolute Zero." I gave the novel its own absolute zero in this review. But there was something about ol' Chuck that I liked. No matter how much I hated his characters, his writing style piqued my interest.

I decided to give him another chance, this time with…

Stephen Jay Schwartz Beat

I have to say this was a tough one for me. I am giving this 4 out 5 stars for a number of good reasons. The biggest one is that Stephen jay Schwartz knows how to write a taunt thriller. Here is the synopsis of the

novel: ”LAPD robbery-homicide detective Hayden Glass has trouble controlling

his urges. No longer trolling the streets looking for working girls, he has a

new obsession-the internet. Infatuated with a woman he finds on a website,

Hayden Glass’s…

Sharon Gillenwater Emily's Chance

Too much of a good thing is too much of a good thing, so having said that on occasion I go off the reservation and try to diversify my reading material. Emily’s Chance is one of those breaks. This is not a tale of

international intrigue or Emily saving the world from terrorists. She’s a different

character for me, and I enjoyed it. A nice shifting of the gears , a breath of

fresh air if you will. Okay I think you got the point, here is a synopsis of
