One Day Deals, Storybundle, and a Maelstrom

We’re down to 24 or so hours on the Return of The Fey Kickstarter. I asked the Fey readers to give me a kick in the butt, by joining the Kickstarter to give me a real deadline on a new Fey novella. Usually I try to have work done before I do a Kickstarter, but in this case, I needed a real kick start. It […]

Business Musings: Surprises in the New World of Publishing

You’d think, after all these years, nothing about the changes in publishing could surprise me. And really, what happened this week didn’t surprise me as much as it surprised me because it happened to me. And it caused me to think of some things I hadn’t considered at all. As many of you know, I’ve been writing these posts about four weeks ahead. This one […]

Give Me A Deadline!

I don’t usually ask my readers to help me finish something, but I need to move The Fey up the priority list. I keep promising to finish it, but getting up to speed has been the barrier. The only way I could encourage myself to do the review was with a deadline. I tried to set my own deadline, but that didn’t work. Other things, […]

A Reader’s Holiday

Something To Look Forward To

During the last few holiday seasons I spent in Oregon, I was so sick that I couldn’t go to most holiday celebrations. I’m allergic to much of the universe, I guess, and in the tiny Oregon town where I lived, I couldn’t go to any restaurant because they cross-contaminated. Not to mention the fact that they had terrible ventilation systems, so if someone showed up […]

Business Musings: A Tiny Bit of Courage

I was in a high school English class when I learned the Ernest Hemingway quote “Courage is grace under pressure.” I remember the teacher writing it on the board, and then dissecting it, and I remember being completely confused by it. It’s the word “grace,” I think, which still in my mind brings out a host of things Hemingway didn’t mean. “Saying grace” for prayers […]
