Just Some Good Stuff on a Wednesday Afternoon :)

Fascinating information about self-publishing to Kindle by JA Konrath:

Kudzu and Kindle

The last two books I've read:

Original Sin by Allison Brennan....

Just.... Wow. Fast paced, enjoyable, creepy at times. Good stuff.

Never After by Laurell K. Hamilton and others... Fractured fairy tales at their finest. :)


  1. I just read Konrath's blog. Awesome! Are you coming to the WisRWA conference in May? He's one of the speakers.

    I love Allison's cover! That's brilliant.

  2. Oh, I didn't know there was a conference in May. I'll have to check it out. I want to go to the Chicago North one that's going to be in Deerfield, IL in April - it's only 10 minutes away and it's not that expensive. :)

    Did you know Allison's daughter had some input on the design of the cover? She mentions it in the acknowledgments/dedication pages. I'm looking forward to the rest of the series.

  3. PS: You can check out the Chicago conference at

    Now I just have to renew my RWA membership... :)

  4. I didn't know that about Allison's daughter. How cool!

    I'd love to go to the Spring Fling, but I can't afford both conferences. You'll probably see Liz Kreger there. Be sure to say hi.

  5. My mom recently started reading Ms Hamilton.

  6. Aw, that's too bad, Edie. I'll have to see if I can swing both of them. I'd love to run into Liz. :)

    Travis - I hope your mom has a strong constitution. ;) LKH isn't for the faint-hearted.

  7. Konrath is one of my favorite authors, not only for his books, but for his willingness to spread information to new writers and for keeping a constant eye on the horizon.


Say what you will...
