|Dan Thompson||2,253||Here is my circle of writers. My suggestion to you new G+ folks is to add the entire circle as its own circle, i.e. "Dan's Writing Circle". Over time, move your favorites over into your own growing array of circles.In particular, though, I'd say pay attention to John Ward, Evo Terra, Nathan Lowell, Brook Johnson, and Jefferson Smith.||2014-02-22 19:51:53||249||2||1||2||CC G+|
|Moe „Gilvan Blight“ Tousignant||6,673||RPG Circle ShareI hadn't done these in some time but decided to start up in the new year. I've already shared my A and B circles and if you want to find those you will have to go back through my feed.What you have here is my C RPG Gamers circle. These are all G+ users who's name they have chosen to use start with the letter C. Everyone in this circle should have something to do with RPGs in some way. They may be a designer, a writer, an editor, an artist, a publisher, a fan, an edition warrior, a blogger, a podcaster, etc. If you do grab some of these people you should take the time to say hi! The best way I've found to do this is put them into a "New People" circle, send a message out to that new circle and then split the people up into whatever circle system you choose to use.||2014-01-17 18:31:57||301||7||0||3||CC G+|

So I thought I would share my writer's circle with you all. In it you will find a bunch of G+ Writers and people who have to do with writers (publishers for instance).

On Island far from any continent we have sometimes very different animals taking the place of the ones we are used to see.
The Predatory Hawaiian Caterpillar (Eupithecia orichloris) has evolved to fulfill a niche normally occupied by insects like praying mantises. Since there aren’t any on the islands of Hawaii, something had to step up and become a super insectivorous predator.

Big day. BOOK RELEASE DAY. vibrates
This is where I ask you sincerely to spread the word about this book if you can -- it's a big release for me and I'd love to see it do well. Also, books like this are how I pay for the free content I provide at jolly ol' terribleminds (guilt guilt guilt), so -- any chance you have to tell folks, I'd very much appreciate your effort on the book's behalf.

"So I have to be honest, I scoffed at the description, thinking there was no way that Wendig could pull of a novel targeted at a less than mature audience, and wasn't so sure about 'bloodthirsty corn' either. But when I found the title on Netgalley, I just had to give it a run. And, boy was I glad I did. Under the Empyrean Sky is everything that makes YA a powerhouse genre, a coming of age story that resonates with its audience while posing bigger questions for the crossover crowd. There is pathos, mystery, action, and a healthy dose of the bare knuckle prose that makes Wendig such a draw for me. This is no Hunger Games clone, Under the Empyrean Sky brings to mind both the classics like The Grapes of Wrath and mines the Hero monomyth with a rakish glee producing a hybrid much like the aforementioned corn; bloodthirsty and relentless."

"Why you should read it: I’ve saved my favorite for last. Everything about this book is superb—the lyrical writing, the complex character relationships, the richly imagined world Cael lives in. But mostly it’s the inherent believability of this future. A world where corn is king and our dependence on this staple has grown completely out of control? Yep. I’m buying it."

A big ol frothy chumbucket of dubious writing and storytelling advice. Normally I stick with a list of 25 for these, but let's crank the volume and go all the way to 50.

Today Karina Cooper manifests at #terribleminds and would like to talk about the danger of silence in the fight against sexism and misogyny.

Oh ho ho. Looks like Hugo voting is on. Is it impolitic to mention that I'm nominated for the Campbell? awkward toothy smile

"For something so fantastical, The Blue Blazes is remarkably believable. The characters who populate the novel feel real, their motivations and actions understandable and relevant. To call this ‘hard-boiled’ would be an understatement; the dialogue is sharp, the stakes are high and, because we are so involved in the story, most twists come as a complete surprise, even though on later reflection they seem obvious. Rounded off with an emotional finale, The Blue Blazes is a serious contender for book of the year."

People who wash clothes: our clothing sometimes comes out of the washing machine with MORE stains -- kind of like oil stains almost. Why is this? How to fix?

I thought I'd take a moment to address some of the more, er, curiously vehement (and sometimes impolite) responses to my post yesterday about sexism and misogyny in writing and publishing --

"This was an immensely satisfying book. The mythology was rich and the world wickedly brutal. I felt a rush when I was done wishing the sequel was already written."

Goblins. Snakefaces. Charcuterie. Worm-gods. Secret drugs. Organized crime. Roller derby girl gangs. THE BLUE BLAZES:

I don't think I made it known but THE BLUE BLAZES is out in the UK this week. Mystic drugs! Horrific gobbos! A labyrinth beneath Manhattan! The most twisted version of "take-your-daughter-to-work-day" ever!
And, as always, if you read THE BLUE BLAZES and dug it, I'd be all moony-eyed and blushy-cheeked if you left a review somewhere.

Amazon maybe trying to find indie bookstore partners to push the Kindle. Fascinating (and will likely fail).

Publishers, please offer e-books if I buy a physical copy. You will sell more books, not fewer. If you don't do it, Amazon will.
In fact, assume "if you don't do it, Amazon will" is both a motto and a prophecy going forward.
