Recommended Reading List: January, 2015

Wow, when I get behind, I get behind. I ran out of time to write about books as I finished them, and figured I could do it in February. Yeah, right. With two workshops, and a bunch of deadlines, February has proven to be a nightmare of scheduling—which is why this thing barely squeezed in […]

The Business Rusch: Unintended Consequences

I am completely overwhelmed. Not because I just finished teaching a week-long workshop. Not because one of my novels decided to become triplets. Not because it’s about to become November. Because I have too much to read. Seriously. I preorder a lot of books, and pick up the rest from my favorite local bookseller. One […]

The Business Rusch: Carrots And Sticks

Once upon a time, maybe five years ago, I used to wake up and figure in my head which deadlines I needed to tackle that day. The most critical, the hardest, or the ones with the most cache/money/interest always got put in line first, and then I would build everything else around those. I had […]

Recommended Reading List: June, 2013

Who knew that a chair could be so important? My best reading chair is in my writing office, but I have a strict rule: I cannot read any fiction but my own in that office. I learned the hard way that if I read other people’s fiction in my office, I never get any writing […]

Recommended Reading List: September 2012

I finished writing a particularly troublesome novel in September. That novel only let me read very dark fiction, nonfiction, or YA novels. (Yes, what I write often dictates what I read.) So I was limited on the first half of the month. As for the second half, I started a lot of books I thought […]

Recommended Reading List: June, 2012

I taught a weeklong short story workshop in June. This means I read a lot of great stuff that I can’t share with you because it’s not published yet. But in keeping with my policy, I’ll share that stuff with you when the authors let me know the story’s in print somewhere. I have no […]

Recommended Reading List: September 2011

I got back to reading in September, but bumped along on my choices. I had trouble concentrating in the first part of the month, since so much was going on in my life. I read a celebrity memoir and enjoyed it, but don’t feel it was good enough to recommend. Then I read two other […]

The Business Rusch: Bookstore Observations

The Business Rusch: Bookstore Observations Kristine Kathryn Rusch I live in a town that has no completely new bookstore. We have two marvelous bookstores that feature new and used.  One specializes in mysteries, and the other gets as much of everything as it can. But it only has a tiny storefront, and so “everything” is […]

The Business Rusch: Bestselling Writers (Changing Times Part Eight)

The Business Rusch: Bestselling Writers (Changing Times Part Eight) Kristine Kathryn Rusch Every single writer I’ve ever met wants to become a bestseller.  Writers want their work read by everyone from their teachers to the grade-school bully to some person in a small unsung island in the Pacific. The problem is that vision of a […]
