I’ve been making big plans for Read. Write. Discuss. this week. Not just for the Echo in the Bone read-along, but for holiday posts and other fun stuff, like November Favourites. I’ll warn you now: the holiday wind-up is only fuelling my obsession with glitter. I’ve decided to disable my MailChimp mailing list, effective Monday. This may …

Normally I write these posts at least a dan in advance, but I’ve been a bit behind lately. So here I sit, on a very busy Sunday, trying to wrap my head around all that’s happened this week. First, daylight savings time. The good one. Not the shitty one that deprives us of an hour …

It’s definitely true that the better my writing life gets, the more my blogging life suffers. There simply aren’t enough hours in the day to do both. On the one hand, I wrote ~11k words this week. On the other, I only posted twice this week on Read. Write. Discuss. and once on Small Books, …

Bookish News I wasn’t big on Divergent by Veronica Roth (you can read about just how hard I DNF’d it here), but I am a big fan of Buzzfeed. Check out Buzzfeed’s list of things in the Divergent footage that will make you freak out. Ever heard of Story Bundle? Basically it’s a limited-time bundling site where …

Bookish News This week was a good one for me. I published a companion novella, the one you’re all probably sick of hearing about by now. The frustrations of dealing with publishing platforms (Nook Press in particular *shakes fist*) are all worth it when readers enjoy the finished product. So, a big sparkly THANK YOU …

Bookish News This past week on reddit, users were challenged to create horror stories using only two sentences. These were some of the best.  My favourite is about the boy under the bed. Spine-chillingly good. Disney is teaming up with Harvey Weinstein to make an Artemis Fowl movie. Putting this together is going to take …

Bookish News I’ve been up to my eyeballs in production this week. Ottawa Arts Review is going to press next week, if all goes according to plan. I still have to do production for the ebook, but hopefully the next time I post about it, I’ll have details for the launch party. Our last issue launch at …

Bookish News I feel like I visited every extant blog this week, doing research before I start organizing the launch tour for Love Among Pigeons.  I found some cool plugins I didn’t know existed, drooled over beautiful minimalist blog designs (so happy that style is trending right now — I used to be the weirdo …

Bookish News Kindles are newly available in China. When I heard this I balked. There was a book market as big as China sitting untapped, and Amazon wasn’t on that like flies on garbage? That’s doesn’t sound very Amazonian. There was an explosion of debate lately over sexist articles and images published by the bulletin …

On the Blog I finally completed the switch from iPage to GoDaddy. Sadly, I lost all my plugins in the switch. So now I’m trying to remember the names of each one. Often I don’t know they’re missing until I go to access a tool, and it’s not there. Reading Sometimes I just have to …
