It’s all about Writing (and always has been)

Escher 120I happened upon a blog entry the other day that asked why J.K. Rowling hadn’t self-published her new crime books. The blogger went on at great length to illustrate the advantages Rowling could have enjoyed if only she had hired her own editor, publicist and so on. The decision of the famous author, evidently, was too inexplicable and wrong-headed to be believed. Continue reading

Andrew Updegrove:

How Would you React if Your Book was Pirated?

Capt. Henry Morgan 120We all know what happened to musicians once Napster came along – millions of people started downloading their music without paying a dime to the authors or publishers of that music.

Book Review: The Peace of Maine, by Steven Bennett (Fiction)

Peace of Maine 120The Peace of Maine takes place in a post-apocalyptic not so distant future, and one that’s set up with a chillingly conceivable series of events. Successive acts of terrorism invoke increasingly xenophobic reactions that resonate as  being uncomfortably possible in light of recent actions by the US and other world powers. The ultimate outcome is one that leaves only a smattering of isolated communities recovering not so much from the nuclear holocaust, but from the devastatingly effective bio-attack that coincides with the kinetic assault.
