“Character” Guest Spot on Goodreads Blog

It started just two days after Christmas, an invitation from Australian writer Natasha Ewendt (who also has a nice review of THE TEARS OF ISIS on Amazon, by the way) to be featured on her AUTHOR SHOWCASE blog on Goodreads.  “The series is about all things writing — it can be about yourself, your stories and your career, or offer tips on the industry, or be about an aspect of the industry — absolutely anything really.”  A chance, in other words, to toot my horn — but maybe say something useful as well.  How could I refuse?

Well, the useful part will be up to the reader to say (and should he or she wish, there are sections for comments both on this blog and on Natasha’s, including a good  chance of receiving a reply or at least a “thank you”).  And so, to the point, my guest post just went up this evening — that is, in the US; in the morning, I think, for those in Australia — a coming together of some things I’ve been saying in interviews lately, under the rubric “On Character, Stress, and a Love of Language.”  To see it for yourself, press here.

At least these are things important to me right now in my writing, with applications as well (as I try to explain in the blurb that follows it) to THE TEARS OF ISIS.


  1. Truly enjoyed your blog entry on Goodreads!
