The Great Big FAQ

I’ve known I’ve needed an FAQ for a while, so here it is! This will go up as a page at the header, and you all can have your questions answered! But before that happens, this is a test run, your chance to look over my questions and ask any of your own. Did I… Continue reading The Great Big FAQ

You’re Invited to My reddit Author Spotlight Saturday

Mark your calendars, set your alarms! This badass author is having an author spotlight over on reddit’s Book board on Saturday, April 23rd.

What is it? It’s basically an ask-me-anything over on Reddit. You can drop by and just say hey, you can ask a question, you can add to the discussion–any or all!

When? It’s April 23rd, from 11am to 6pm EST. That doesn’t mean you need to be there the whole time, it means come by any time! And, to be honest, after; I’ll still be keeping an eye on it. (Though actually I forgot I have a couple things scheduled that day, so I will be in and out. Oops! Guess I’ll just have to make do.)

Where? It’s happening on reddit’s Book board here. On Saturday, I’ll make a thread and the mods will pin it to the top so anyone can drop by. Don’t worry, I’ll be posting links everywhere as well!

And, uh, what is reddit? Reddit’s an anonymous(ish) chat forum that has a billion sub-forums, called sub-reddits. For this spotlight, we’ll be, quite appropriately, on Books!

In order to post there, you will need an account, but they take half a second to make and you don’t even have to give them your email address. It’s easier than accidentally making eye-contact with a vendor at a mall kiosk, but with much better payoff.

If you want to make sure you’ll remember, click that you’re attending on the event page on Facebook–and don’t forget to invite your friends as well!

Want to ask a question about my books? The blog? Tell the world that you’re desperately shipping two characters? Demand if that thing I implied on page 253 was deliberate and, if so, will it be explored in later books? This is the time!

Thanks everyone, and see you there!

Am I Making You Tense? In Defense of First-Present

Think of a book, your favorite book. Quick, what tense is it written in? Past or present? You probably had to think for a moment. Nothing wrong with that. Any book that’s written well will be remembered for its content, not its perspective. Nevertheless, persist. What was it written in? Now what was the perspective,… Continue reading Am I Making You Tense? In Defense of First-Present
