Ed’s Casual Friday 5/25 – Writers, Reviewers, & the OK Corral.

Today on Ed’s Casual Friday over at Indies Unlimited, I try to bring some measure of peace to the Hatfields & McCoys. Nah, that would be too easy, let’s go with Writers & Reviewers.

“Overhead, he heard the black birds cry.” – Tag Line Tuesday with G.R. Yeates.

Today, Tag Line Tuesday is pleased to welcome author and noted skull enthusiast G.R. Yeates from Across the Pond (and boy, are his arms tired…from the rowing. Rimshot!). With any luck, that will be the worst joke either of us makes during the course of the interview. Though I wouldn’t put money on it.

Ed: Welcome! As I am told writers are creative people, please answer each of the following standard biographic questions twice: Once with the truth and once with a lie.

Name?

GRY: G.R. Yeates, or Edward Elizabeth Hitler. Read the rest of this entry »

News for Volume Four of the Norothian Cycle

Bol Aloha, all. 😉

Let’s call it LATE JUNE, that is, before the 27th. I will of course announce it here, post frequently, laugh myself silly, etc.

Book IV is titled DEVIL TOWN, and much like Book II (Death of a Kingdom) it will follow three plotlines, in three “Parts.”

Ed’s Casual Friday 5/18 – After a Colon: a hot mess.

Today on Ed’s Casual Friday over at Indies Unlimited, I discuss why nobody knows whether or not to capitalize the first word after a colon. Not you, not me, not the Chicago Manual of Style. Also, I used a different picture of a colon over there. 😉

Ed’s Casual Friday: Safire Rules and so are you

Today’s column over at Indies Unlimited deals with the writing rules delineated by a true master, William Safire. The “and so are you” line will make sense in that context. 😉

Interview, what I’m afraid of…

Thanks to G.R. Yeats for hosting an interview today, and allowing me to ramble on a bit about the Norothian Cycle, fear, Tilda Lanai, so forth and so on. 🙂

“An earthbound angel with crumpled, cardboard wings” – Tag Line Tuesday with Stephanie Abbott

Today, Tag Line Tuesday is happy to welcome three people, or maybe it’s one person with three names. I better let her explain. Off we go:

Ed: Howdy! As I hear writers are creative people, please answer each of the following biographic questions twice, once with the truth and once with a lie.

Name?

SA: Emma Jameson and S.A. Reid. And…. Stephanie Abbott. But I’m far better known as those first two names. Read the rest of this entry »
