Recommended Reading List: September, 2014

Fortunately, I read a lot of really good books this month, and stories, and articles.

Short Stories, Discoverability, and More

This was the post I had planned to make last week, and ended up putting up the kitten video instead. If you haven’t seen the video, click here. In sixty seconds, it’ll teach you how to edit an anthology. Seriously. Honestly. Really. Go look. Now, here’s some of what I planned to tell you. The […]

The Business Rusch: Marketing And Readers (Discoverability Part Who Knows)

Here’s the great thing about writing this nonfiction series in public: you folks let me know when I’m not being clear or if there’s something I need to explain. I’ve worked in so many aspects of business, and owned so many different kinds of companies, that some of the knowledge I have which I take […]

Again, I did a lot of Fiction River reading this month, and you will see the results over the next year. The first volume of Fiction River, Unnatural Worlds, appeared on April 23, and please consider the stories in there as part of this recommended reading list. I’m not going to tell you my favorite […]

Recommended Reading: February 2013

Most of what I read in February was for the Fiction River anthologies and for the various workshops I did. Most of that will receive recommendations from me—or you can just consider Fiction River its own recommendation. But for the rest of February, I researched a new novel and read some stuff that mostly did […]

The Business Rusch: Where Art Meets Commerce

If you’re a regular reader of this blog, you probably think I make a business decision every time I sit down to write. You might assume that I have audience-tested my ideas and have planned my next works in excruciating market-approved details. And if you think any of that, you would be wrong. When I […]
