Recommended Reading List: March, 2015

I had such hopes for March. We held the anthology workshop during the first week, so all of my reading that week was review. Afterwards, I had to line edit two volumes of Fiction River, so that took some of my reading time. (If you want to see all the reading I do on Fiction River, […]

The Business Rusch: Scarcity and Abundance

The Business Rusch: Scarcity and Abundance Kristine Kathryn Rusch   For nearly two years now, I’ve been trying to find a succinct way to express how publishing is changing. So imagine my pleasure when I found the exact analogy that I wanted in John Seabrook’s New Yorker article, “Streaming Dreams,” about YouTube. A few years […]

The Business Rusch: Playing To Win

  The Business Rusch: Playing To Win Kristine Kathryn Rusch I keep teasing my husband, saying he should write a how-to book called Think and Grow Thin. Seriously. Because that’s how this man loses weight. He lost 40 pounds this year on the Think and Grow Thin method. He sets his mind to losing weight, […]
