But this year, something goes wrong. Something he will not stand for. Something he must stop. No matter how much it costs him. No matter what goes wrong.

I have no idea how much an oodle is, but we’re going to assume it’s a great deal. Anyone who comes to this website regularly knows how much I like holiday stories. I like them sweet and saccharine; I like them dark and murdery; I like them horrific and bloody. If a story has a holiday in it and the story is good, I’m there. […]
If you want to sustain your writing and publishing businesses, you have to stop thinking like a manufacturer.
November flew by for reasons I have yet to figure out. Almost all of my reading was wonderful, and I really had to work to find time to list everything. I started some of my holiday reading early, not because I want the year to end (which is different from last year), but because some books arrived that I couldn’t wait to read, so I […]

I’ve had my own things to deal with this year, and I really haven’t been looking outward as much as I usually do. But a friend who traveled to a number of conventions this year mentioned that avoiding burnout was a topic at every […]

I started the Holiday Recommended Reading List when I realized that I point out all the great holiday stories in January, after the season has passed. I am always a month behind in reporting what I read. So I wanted you to find the great stories that I’ve enjoyed over the months. I love holiday stories of all kinds. I save up the stories to […]
When I planned this blog, I thought I’d list all of the cool things I learned in 2017. However, as I looked at my list, and my potential list, and added the things I had missed, I realized that the very list of cool things is overwhelming, and not something I can write about quickly.
I want to take some time with these cool things, so I’ll probably do this as a ramp-up to 2018, because there’s a lot of great things.
Instead, I’ll first examine the things that have made a difference for me in 2017, and then I’ll look at a couple of other things that have extended over the years.
