This ties in to Jim Butcher's long ago post on his livejournal thing.
Look for "Would Someone PLEASE teach this writer how to do research?" from Tuesday, December 26, 2006.
Yes it's an old post. I've been ruminating on this one for a while. Yes, I'm a cow. You can imagine how tough it is to type this blog with HOOVES.
Here's the thing--(a) as a published author, don't read your Amazon reviews. Just
When one thinks of a time machine, he imagines all the exotic adventures he could take. But what if a large firm were to get their hands on one and let its legal and compliance department have a say? How could they foul up a perfectly wonderful invention? One man is about to find out.

Well, I finished reading four books this month, which isn't a record by any stretch of the imagination, but it's up from a big fat bagel in August, so... what can I say? Newborns take time and they take it from your schedule in an arbitrary, inconsistent manner.
So I have a moment now and I'm trying to think what to discuss. I had a moment earlier this week but didn't come up with a topic.
So maybe quick book jabber.

I've uploaded the rest of the parts of People Of The Tiger to the Stories section here. At least 60,000 people love this book, and I hope you all like it too!
Goal: 50,000 words in a novel by the end of the month. Start from nothing if you're all official and rule-following zombie and the like.
I probably won't be posting much here in November, but I'm going to try to set up a few robo-posts to keep the eyeballs steered my way. If you want to check my progress or offer encouragement, I'm specifically at:

Suddenly a loud booming voice echoed off the walls making Adam jump, “Sir, were you talking to me? I have found more data on the era of time you requested earlier. Do you wish to view it? In light of the cylinder being found at the dig this morning, I felt it might give you insight to the person that might be inside.”
“Oliver, next time you do that I will disconnect you. Turn down your vocals please.
I can get away with this one as it is just after midnight here in the UK.
I love Halloween, though I realise it is more of an American thing. Makes me feel all Bradbury, and I drag out The October Country and Something Wicked This Way Comes again...
It's a bit like ghost stories between now and Christmas, which again I love (Good 'ol M.R. James!).
I'm not a believer, but like a good chill now and then.
This year for me it's lots of the old stuff

I love people watching. Give me a comfortable seat on the edge of a big crowd, and I can watch them for hours, which is pretty much what a book signing feels like for those of us who aren’t named Paris Hilton, Sarah Palin, or Stevie King.
(Interesting side note: Only two of those listed authors are actually able to pick out a noun and a verb in a sentence. But I digress . . .)
However, whether you sell a thousand copies or three, a book signing is an excellent opportunity
Tor.com (and Jo Walton) has started a look at the Hugo Award winners, from 1953 onwards, comparing the Winner (in this case Bester's The Demolished Man) to what else was around.
Think this is great: have been meaning to do the same myself for years. Once upon a time, the strapline 'Hugo Award Winner' meant that I would pick that book up on my limited budget (or
Have you ever had anyone tell you to stay out of an argument because it doesn’t involve you? Do private disputes really stay private, or do they have a larger effect on the world around them? What if a domestic disturbance caused a ghostly disturbance?
Mike and Angie are just another couple on just another Friday Night date having just another argument. But this time it doesn’t stay between the two of them. This
