Posted on Oct 16, 2017 by   4 Comments | Posted in Blog

The old saying about the definition of insanity really resonates with me. You know the one I mean – it’s usually attributed to Einstein, but no one really knows who said it first. Doesn’t really matter, it’s about as true as a sentiment can be. I’ve been all over the place this week, trying new [Read more…]

This week, I have a guest star on my blog…literary agent Sara Megibow! *cheers* *applause *lets loose with one of those those piercing whistles that make people cringe* Sara did a fabulous interview with another one of her clients, Emmie Mears, about what happens once an author signs with an agent.

Monday Mayhem – Joy Thievery

Posted on Aug 28, 2017 by   6 Comments | Posted in Blog

Sadly, my favorite picture of Teddy Roosevelt has proved to be a fake. But one thing the 26th President got right was this little gem: It’s true. People rarely come out feeling better about themselves or their accomplishments when they hold them up against someone else’s. We tend to stop and look around when we [Read more…]

Posted on Jul 31, 2017 by   3 Comments | Posted in Blog

So, yeah. In the last two weeks I’ve completed revisions on one manuscript, approved and completed copyedits on two others, added 15k to my WIP via dictation, and there’s a galley to proof in my inbox. Yes, it’s safe to say I’ve hit the Kahn level of tired. So I’m taking the rest of July [Read more…]

Posted on Jul 24, 2017 by   7 Comments | Posted in Blog

For those of you who have been following my blog for the last few weeks, you’ve heard me mention Elizabeth Gilbert’s term, “the song of the disciplined halfass.” That section of her book, BIG MAGIC, really spoke to me. Not that I consider myself half-ass. In this case, she’s referring to half-assery as an alternative [Read more…]
