After a lengthy hiatus from blogging (I’ve actually been spending my days writing a new novel) I have a post up today at the SFNovelists Blog Site, which I help maintain along with approximately 100 other writers of fantasy and science fiction. Today’s post is called “Short Fiction, Anthologies, and an Ongoing Kickstarter Campaign,” and it is about exactly that. (This is what we call truth-in-advertising, folks!) Writing short fiction is a terrific way for aspiring writers to hone their craft, and this post discusses the benefits of writing stories, as well as the fun of crafting them for themed anthologies. And finally, it offers a few details about a new project — Temporally Out of Order — that a group of us are trying to get off the ground.  Please check out the post here.  And learn more about the Temporally Out of Order kickstarter campaign here.  Thanks, and enjoy!!

Today the Summer 2013 Thieves’ Quarry Blog Tour stops in to visit with my good friend and colleague Benjamin Tate. (AKA Joshua Palmatier)  We did an interview, with some interesting questions — and you can find it here.

Meanwhile, the Summer 2013 Thieves’ Quarry Signing Tour is in Richmond, Virginia today.  I will be signing copies of Thieftaker and Thieves’ Quarry (and whatever else you might want me to sign) this evening at Fountain Bookstore in Richmond, beginning at 6:30.  If you’re in the area, stop by and say hello.

Finally, the Blog Tour Schedule says that I am also supposed to be at Bitten By Books today, for an all day event and gift card giveaway.  That event has been rescheduled for next Tuesday, July 16.  Hope to see you all there.
