I have a new Storyville column up at LitReactor today entitled Ten Lesser-Known Stephen King Books Worth Reading. ENJOY!
I have a second column up at ManArchy. This one covers a fantastic collection by Matt Bell, Cataclysm Baby, as well as my thoughts on BBQ, Diners, Drive-Ins and Dives, and Wild by Cheryl Strayed. Head on over for more information.
My latest Storyville column over at Lit Reactor is all about endings, twisted and otherwise. What do we talk about? Beginnings, icebergs, fulfillment through resolution, to twist or not twist, deus ex machina, and caring about your characters. Hope it helps. ENJOY!
So, I always leap at the chance to work with brilliant and talented people. So when Pela Via asked me to do something for ManArchy Magazine, I said, “Sure.

It’s an offshoot of The Cult, taking all of the publishing, craft, and literature conversations as well as workshops, classes, lectures, reviews and columns away from what was essentially the Chuck Palahniuk fan club, and moving it all to a new base. I’m thrilled that […]
Print vs. Online – The great debate So Larina and I are once again at it. We’re going to try to be a little more regular about this, but things got in the way in the past month – birth, death, work, alcohol, nudity, football, kids, and beef jerky. Not necessarily in that order. Take […]
First of all, Larina and I are doing a dueling column on this issue. I am FOR simultaneous submission (the writer’s perspective) and Larina is FOR no simultaneous submission (editor’s perspective).
