I have two related, cross-linked posts up today.  They are both on the business of writing and publishing.

The first post is my regular Monday post at the Magical Words blog site, which I maintain with fellow authors Faith Hunter, Misty Massey, John Hartness, and Mindy Klasky.  Today’s Magical Words post is called, “‘It’s Just Business’: Loyalty Versus Pragmatism in the Publishing World,” and it is about the various factors that go into a writer’s career decisions.  You can find the post here.

The second is my monthly post at the SFNovelists blog site, a site I maintain with over one hundred published authors of speculative fiction.  That post is called “Professional Comportment and What it Does For a Writer,” and it is about the ways in which an author can maintain a good relationship with his/her publisher.  You can find the SFNovelists post here.

I hope that you enjoy both posts and find them helpful and informative. Thanks!

The Summer 2013 Thieves’ Quarry Blog Tour resumes today with a post at my “home” blog — the Magical Words site.  Magical Words is the group blog on the business and craft of writing fantasy that I maintain with fellow authors Faith Hunter, Misty Massey, Mindy Klasky, John Hartness, and James Tuck, among others.  Today’s post is about a recent significant change in my career:  I have a new editor at Tor Books — Stacy Hague-Hill.  I’m very excited to work with Stacy, but the change does not come without a certain amount of trepidation.  That’s what the post is about.  I hope you enjoy it.
