An Immortal Series

Tamora Pierce was one of my favorite authors during my adolescence. Though I haven’t read her books in a while, they still hold a special place in my heart and on my shelf. Read about her Immortals series in my new Magus Blog article.

Welcome…To Night Vale

Welcome to Night Vale is my gateway podcast, a beautifully strange storytelling experience that reminded me of the noir bits of A Prairie Home Companion and the radio version of Hitchhikers Guide To The Galaxy. Needless to say, I’m in love with it. Read all about it and the books that have come from the show in my new Magus Blog article.

Fiction Section Groupie

There’s nothing that makes me happier than the fiction section of a bookstore. Being able to take care of that section and even stock it? Oh man… read all about it in my new Magus Blog post.

Retelling the Present

I started researching Tarot for a small scene in a book that has been currently exiled to the drawer. Like many research projects it got (wonderfully) out of hand. I ended up with two decks, an online class, and a great book by Jessa Crispin. You can read my review of her book The Creative Tarot in my new Magus Bog post.

Kid in a Candy Store

Working in a bookstore, especially one specializing in magic, religion, and the occult is a temptation for any writer. As someone working on an urban fantasy novel, it’s doubly so. See how I (attempt) to resist temptation in my new Magus Books Blog post.

People I Read: Kim Harrison

There is nothing quite like having a window into life of someone who has achieved success doing the work you dream to do. Especially if this person creates things that you admire. Kim Harrison is one of my favorite authors. I adore her urban fantasy Hollows series and enjoyed her new science fiction thriller The Drafter a great deal. Originally, I followed her blog to find out when the next Hollows book was coming out, but soon I came to love it for giving me a peek into the life of a bestselling writer.

Harrison’s blog is an awesome read for any of her fans as it announces sales, freebie giveaways, and run snippets of stories and deleted scenes. For an aspiring writer she gives a tantalizing glimpse of the life of a career writer who makes her living with her craft. “I work whether I like it or not,” she says in a recent post, “whether the words flow or have to be pick-axed out–and so there is progress and movement whether I feel good about it or not. Stuff goes from brain to fingers, to printer, to cabinet, or Tim [her husband] suffers.”

So whether you’re a fan of Kim Harrison’s work (or think you might be in the near future) and/or an aspiring novelist, her blog is definitely worth checking out.
