Kindle Matchbook

Kindle Matchbook

Recently, I learned that Amazon is discontinuing its Kindle Matchbook program. It was one that allowed readers who had purchased my books as a paperback to receive the ebook editions at a discounted price. This is most unfortunate, as I felt like it was a fantastic...

Version Four

Version Four

Last week went by in a blur. Thousands and thousands of words were written on my recent edit of Daughters of Misfortune. (For those keeping track, I'm currently on Draft 4.) I don't usually do rewrites this extensive, thanks to an outlining system I've developed over...

I Know the Code!

I Know the Code!

So, by far the most fun thing that has happened recently is that I got my SFWA decoder ring. I don't know if any of my fellow members will actually send me coded messages, but that's not the point, is it. The point is that we could (and I'm hoping someone will.) As a...

She’s Helping Again
