Feel the music, feed the flames

 Nothing freezes me faster than cold, hard facts.  “Cold”?  “Hard”?  Yeah, you get the picture.  Whenever I try to be a savy author gathering information involving numbers, diagrams and charts, I can feel the numbness beginning to eat at my fingers and toes.  “Publishing is a business,” you say.  “We have to stay on … Continue reading

I have to admit that it’s been quite some time (uh, at least ten months) since I’ve been in a large-chain bookstore.  As the mom of a busy pre-schooler, Amazon … Continue reading

A couple years ago I spoke with a fellow writer friend who had passed on a contract with one of the more successful e-publishing companies. Her reasoning: the contract was too restrictive. They wanted the first right of refusal on all future work and lifetime rights. And I remember being appalled at the audacity. In … Continue reading
