Free Reading In The Crisis

Spending more time on Twitter recently, I see as well that lots of writers are extra-pushing their books. Some are making them free, even calling them (in my opinion, rather tackily) "Coronavirus sales."

The Countess

I have been working slowly on the new novel. It won't be out before probably late-2021 at the earliest. However, as we are all stuck inside...

Where We Should Be

Where we should be is HOME, wherever HOME happens to be.

Gosford To Belgravia

To talk about SOMETHING else and innocuous briefly.

Today At The Silent Movies

In posting all of those silly captions, clearly I have lost my mind...

All Of Us Together (Even If Apart)

No one is an island, and suddenly many of us feel like castaways: marooned and alone.

Book Sounds

While I have not listened to her start to finish narrating through any of them, from what I have heard she has a decent speaking voice.

While We Are Staying In

We should sensibly (wherever we are in the world) wash our hands more than usual and minimize human contact, and stay home if possible - especially if we feel the slightest bit unwell, particularly because this COVID-19 virus seems to be quite fatal to those over age 75. So where better for us to spend time "self-isolating" than here on the net? 🙂

“Hey, he made that up!”

A NOVEL is NEVER a FACT book... it is a STORY.

In Memory Of…

After we are gone, what will be said about us? Like everyone else, I suppose authors do wonder too...

The Route

My "experience" since 2013 has been this. I went the "indie" route for these reasons...

“Close Friends”

When he read my first two novels (he did not live to read the third) and saw "himself" (including my fictionalizing "a crush" he had had on a girl friend of mine), he revealed to me that he thought it was hilarious and was even touched.

Writers: Don’t Mess With The Holocaust

The historical Nazis were more than bad enough, so one hardly needs to invent anything when it comes to portraying their sadism and violence...

“Representations”

It is not up to that tweeter, or to anyone else, to "suggest" what "representations" "should" appear in anyone's novel(s); they should just write their own damn books.

Dear Reader: What Is In My Name Is Me

Novel-writing is not, for me, some sort of group project, and I will NOT pretend I think otherwise.
