The Business Rusch: Story Demands

 I am currently writing three books at once. I know, I know, some of you believe that’s not unusual for me, but it is. Usually I focus on one thing and wrestle it to the ground before moving onto something else. These three books are one thing. They’re in one of my series, and for a few weeks, I was struggling to write the next […]

Diving Novels Available Worldwide, Another Kobo Special, And A “Thrilling” Podcast

For years, people outside of the United States and Canada have asked me for copies of the first three books in the multiple-award-winning Diving universe, Diving Into The Wreck, City of Ruins, and Boneyards. For a while, selling copies of the books outside of the United States and Canada was impossible without selling those same copies inside of the United States and Canada. Pyr Books has licensed the North American […]

The Business Rusch: The Global View

 I’ll be honest with you: when I planned a topic for my blog last week that wasn’t US-specific, I was thinking that the hits on my site would drop off.
