"Our company only publishes digital books and they're just as legit as print books. I don't think a book has to have shelf space in a legacy shop to be considered a real book. It makes author autographings more of a challenge, but authors…"
"I take a parental approach to writing . . . "My head, my thoughts! If you don't like either, get out." Didn't work with this pair. They just went to their rooms, slammed the door and won't come down for dinner! ;-)"
"I have an unfinished manuscript dating back to 1987(?). I used to have the first chapter on my website until I decided it was horrible and removed it. It's a good story, but the characters took it in a different direction than I was traveling,…"

"Broadly speaking, Americans are hung up about nudity and sex. Europeans not so much. As an American living in Europe, I can see the vast differences between the cultures. Especially in America around the Bible Belt. It's easy to see with…"
"Quick question -- I'm all about context, so if we're on a desert island, shouldn't want books on how to find water? Or how to extract water from any cacti about? ;-)
Of course, I'm all for desserted islands . . . especially those…"
