Announced today, on the first day of Comic Con here in San Diego: Imperative Entertainment, the company behind the reboot of NBC’s HEROES, is developing SAND for television.

I grew up going to the library, because my family couldn’t afford my reading habit. Each week, I would leave with a stack of books, and I remember feeling like I was robbing the place. I couldn’t believe they let me just walk out with all those books! I had no concept of who was… more

It’ll be fun to tell our kids where we were when KU 1.0 turned into KU 2.0. We’ll tell them how in the aftermath we roasted rats and pigeons over upturned and burning cars. How we tended to the wounded, finishing off those we knew would not make it. How we drank our own urine in… more

I assumed six months ago that the KU payout terms would eventually change. I wasn’t sure if Amazon would go with a pay-by-page scheme or something that put works in tiers by length, but many observers knew this was a question of “when” and not “if.” Despite the overblown and horribly researched coverage in the wider… more

Bella Andre and I were sitting together at a book convention once, gabbing about shoes and handbags, when an author came up and asked what we thought about their book cover.

UPDATE: The TwinPacks are now available! Vol 1 is right here. And here is Vol 2. First unboxing video in a while. A load of foreign editions arrived at my mom’s place here in the mountains, and proof copies of a special little project I’ve been working on. I also want to welcome everyone to… more

I know a ton of you are dying to see the world of WOOL come to life on the big or small screen. So I’m here to tell you how we can help make this happen: There has been some stirrings on the film side of things, and even the pessimist in me is sitting up… more
