    Heaven's Irregulars

    An aging warrior called out of retirement. A gentle giant of extraordinary courage. Eleven brothers seeking redemption. Europe is in flames, presided over by an ancient evil bent on destruction, death and damnation. Looks like a job for Heaven's Irregulars.

    Let me know if you do any signings in Pittsburgh, and I'll bring the candy!

    Just a thought re book-signings: I lure people with candy. Seriously, have a bowl of candy on your table. People stop for the candy and then you can engage them.
  5. Glad to hear someone say this. The more I try to learn about how to market my books, the more I am convinced that selling books means you have to first win popularity contests, which means I am doomed to failure. My approach has always been to write a good book and then try to sell it. Apparently, I am approaching this backwards.

    Capturing Nocturnal Brainstorms

    My father, a NASA engineer, claimed that he dreamt the solution to some complex mathematical problem and wrote it down when he woke up and that it actually worked. I didn't inherit his abilities at all - I barely passed Algebra II....

    I did take fencing lessons years go. But I'm jealous of Nicola - I want to go to lightsaber school.

    Ha, ha, ha! "Imitation is the sincerest form of compliment." Or, as my mother once said, "Flattery is the sincerest form of compliment." (I don't think that was really what she meant!)

    How Do You Decide What To Write/market?

    After I read "Dracula" when I was in high school, I wanted to write a vampire novel. I had the beginning and the end, but I had no idea what happened in the middle. So it lurked in the back of my mind for years because I didn't know what to do with it. Turned out it was missing a key character. Once he showed up, it all fell into place and I wrote it very quickly.
