Tune in Thursday at 7 Central for Table Talk!

Hey guys, the first draft of the novel is almost done! On track to finish tomorrow.

Meanwhile, Thursday at 7pm central I'll be a guest on the You Tube show Table Talk, and I gather that if you go there live you can actually pelt me with questions and potshots! We will be discussing story, possibly from a geeky perspective. When I asked how long it would go, they said "I mean, we once did 16 hours analyzing Star Trek VI: The Undiscovered Country. So, there you go." See you there!

Episode 46: Organizing Chaos with Sophie Beal and Gary Dalkin

Sophie Beal and Gary Dalkin return to discuss novelists’ relationship with editors, whether freelance or at a publisher. All four of us have been on one side of that divide or another, and most of us more than one, and we have a grand old time discussing it.

And hey, to see that Sophie and Gary know what they’re talking about, check out the first novel they published, SOLD, by Sue Barrow, which was chosen as the School Library Association’s summer pick for the best recent book for ages 13-16.

New Year's Resolution Time!

Hi, everybody, so my New Year’s Resolution was going to be to do at least two Shakespeare posts a week, but I didn’t finish my novel in 2023, so instead, my resolution will be to write at least five pages a day of my book until a first draft is done, then do two Shakespeare posts a week. So the blog will be quiet for a while (maybe a month?) and then spring to life. 25 Shakespeare plays to go! Starting with his two most offensive plays!
