Posted by on February 15, 2017 in amazon, Book Pooks Wrote, Books, Fiction & Literary, Goodreads, Short Stories | 1 comment

They’re heeeeere! The lesser Greek gods are wreaking havoc and you’re invited! I wish I could describe Debris & Detritus for you, but it depends on which story they’re in. They are sisters. They are twin brothers. They are British. They are ancient Greeks. They are lumps of stone, as in… well, the actual definition of debris and detritus. They are funny. They are sweet and romantic. They are terrifying. They are everything I ever dreamed they would be, and as of today, they are available for purchase just about...

Debris & Detritus – Lesser Greek Gods Running Amok

I have slowly, jumpily, start-and-stoppily managed to bring to fruition a project that thrills me.   I am having a moment of extreme pride and joy.   I am editor of a short story anthology. That means I selected and invited each writer, chose each story, and pulled together the pieces to make it all into a heart-stopping, world-twisting book.   And I love it. And I love the cover. Toni McGee Causey created the cover and it is astounding. (She is so multi-gifted that I’d hate her if I didn’t love her.) How did I end...

Are You a Writer?

FIRST — ABOUT THE DEAD SHALL LIVE. It’s on my editor’s desk. We spent hours on Skype freaking out over the ending and how omg-OMG-OMFG!!! it is. It is THAT FREAKING SHOCKING AND AMAZING AND PERFECT.

And we were freaking out over that, and over what is going on in the story into the next book, all the way to the end, and we were euphoric, and yes I am saying all this because I want you to know, yes, it is coming, and...

Christmas in October & the Pitfalls of Designing a Genre Book Cover

This is not the entry you may think it is. Oh I could certainly rant about Christmas decorations for sale before Halloween, but hey– Blah, blah, blah. We’ve all heard it and said it before, and of course I hate it. But yeah, who doesn’t? This entry is about replacing an old cover with a new cover. First, let me tell you, and this hurts. Seriously hurts. I said a very painful farewell to Paisley’s cover. I love this cover. I couldn’t believe I found a Paisley–a real Paisely right down to the cigarette...
