Everybody is a Star!

As a gentle reminder that every book ever written gets *hammered* by one-star reviews sometimes, today’s column at Indies Unlimited runs down the 12 bestselling books of 2012, along with excerpts from 12 reviews that gave them a total of 12 stars. Enjoy. ;-)

Free Apocalypse! (that sounded weird)

APOCALYPSE_ad_jpgHappy Friday, and just a couple things I’d like to mention today – first off, the newest short story collection from the Eclective is available for FREE today from Amazon (and Amazon UK ). This one is seven stories by seven authors all dealing with The Apocalypse, so we figured we should get it out free this weekend…just in case.

Second, over on Ed’s Casual Friday at Indies Unlimited, today’s column details some of the signs that you might, in fact, be a writer of Epic Fantasy.

Thanks for stopping by, have a good weekend, and be sure to check out the post immediately below this one to join the Holiday Hop for a chance to win prizes ranging from all the books of the Norothian Cycle, to a Kindle Fire. :-)

Ed’s Casual Friday: Pantser Monologue

squirrel coffeeToday on Ed’s Casual Friday over at Indies Unlimited, I pants myself.

By which I mean I opine about what it’s like for a writer who is a “Pantser” to sit down every morning in front of their writing instruments with no earthly idea what the hell they are doing there. ;-)

Plus, there’s a squirrel.

Ed’s Casual Friday: What NOT to say to book reviewers.

For today’s column over at Indies Unlimited, 15 writers offer up 15 things no writer should ever, ever, EVER say in response to a review. No matter how bad we might want to say it. ;-)

(the panda thing will make sense, trust me)

Ed’s Casual Friday: TGII & Book Five

Today on Ed’s Casual Friday over at Indies Unlimited, I ruminate a bit about why I am so happy to be working on Book V of the Norothian Cycle (shooting for an early 2013 release), sing the praises of Indie authorship, and generally frolic in my glee. ;-)

Ed’s Casual Friday – So you want to be an Indie…

Today on Ed’s Casual Friday over at Indies Unlimited, I ask if you are sure. I mean really, really sure. ;-)

And because <– that picture is titled “Knee-to-Groin,” I look forward to getting a lot of disturbing search hits.

Ed’s Casual Friday 9/28/12 – Antiheroes

Today over on Ed’s Casual Friday, I offer some ruminations about Antiheroes, past and present. While getting in a reference to It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia, of course. ;-)

FREE book, and Ed’s Casual Friday – Books v. Movies

 Two things today. First off, this weekend (Fri-Sun) is the last FREE run for The Sable City, Book One of the Norothian Cycle, via Amazon’s Select program. Really, Select has been great for me for getting more readers to the series, but to every thing there is a season, and I figure I should nose back onto the other platforms as well. Many thanks to all who got the book on Kindle, and started down Tilda Lanai’s trail and tale. :-)

Second off…why does nobody say “second off?” But apart from that, Ed’s Casual Friday column today over at Indies Unlimited consists of some of my thoughts on the whole “the books is always better than the movie” thing, and why I think that is increasingly less true the more “cinematic” writers try to write their books.

Thanks always for reading. – Ed
