My Agent is Retiring and So What???!!

Holy Crap, have things changed in the span of one year or what?

Ok, I'm sitting here on my bed in my apartment in Italy that I rent once a

year, same as I've been doing every year for the past three Falls. Like

most of Italy, the ancient buildings are the same, the good natured

people are the same, the priceless works of art are the same, the old

recipes are still melt in you mouth, the Tuscan hills still damp from

almost daily rains, the olive groves lush with… Continue

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

The Book is Dead! Long live the Book!

I'm sitting in an airport in St. Paul, awaiting a flight that will take me to the Boise Book Expo. Directly ahead of me is a bookstore called "Authors" which I've never heard from.

Anyway, the shelves are full of books by "Famous Authors."

I've been here for more than an hour, and not a… Continue

The Wrongly Accused!!!

Have you ever been wrongly accused for something? Ever since I was a little kid,

I've been fascinated with the subject. Case and point: one Christmas eve my

parents accused me of opening a gift before Christmas morning arrived.

My dad was big stickler on that. No opening of gifts until after church

on Christmas day. I recall both my parents flanking me and asking me in

that accusatory tone, "Did you or did you not open that gift?" A boy of

no more than 7 I stared at… Continue
