Ever the overachiever, I have already started putting together my annual review. I absolutely love this process. It is so much fun to pull out my trusty notebook, look at my goals for the year, see what was important to me 12 months ago, what I accomplished according to plan, and what went right and wrong. My reviews are elaborate, with spreadsheets and out-year planning and metrics, but remember, I did do a stint as a financial anal...

Hello, darlings, welcome to December! Did you have a good week? The holiday season has definitely arrived: front doors are bedecked with wreaths, spruces peek out of living room windows, neighborhoods twinkle after dark. It's a magical time of year, for sure. I try to savor the season as much as I can, try not to get caught in the checklists and party planning and tying the perfect ribbons. Because when you get caught up in the little t...

So my friends at She Reads do a great “What We’re Into” monthly blog topic that I thought I’d co-opt, because it’s very clever and very fun, and I’m restructuring everything here, so why not, right? Here goes. What I'm Into This Month My porch It’s been a perfect Fall so far — cool but not cold, blue skies, and very little rain, so the cats and I have been out on the porch writing and ruminating. I am going to miss it once thi...

Spend two minutes watching wine tastings on YouTube, and you'll notice some people have a knack for spotting all kinds of crazy things you'd never pick up. Decanter explains how you can decode these tasting notes in a series of helpful infographics. (um, did you see vinyl up there??)

Welcome to the first annual Tao of J.T. holiday gift guide! It’s a bit unfair to call it a full-blown gift guide, since it’s most books, but there are some other suggestions for your favorite bookworm/nerd, too. So let’s jump right in, shall we? Bookworm Gifts These are my hands down favorite of the year. I read more than 70 pleasure books this year, and these are the cream of the crop. The Black Widow - Daniel Silva ...

One of our favorite English language idioms is the phrase "Last, but not least." It applies to today’s post because... I am here to announce my last release of 2016 – FIELD OF GRAVES in paperback! Last, but not least, because FIELD OF GRAVES (or FOG, as it is lovingly referred to at Chez Ellison) is the 6th release of the year. Yes, 2016 was a very, very busy publishing year for me. And this is it until March 14, 2017, so enjoy...

Hello, gentle readers! Have you had a nice holiday? Eat lots of yummy things? I hope you have, and that you got to make some memories with the people you love, to celebrate traditions and make new ones. We had a low-key celebration here, followed by a shift at my lovely indie, Parnassus Books, on Small Business Saturday. Do me a favor and show some love to your local indie, would you? There's nothing like walking into a bookstore, br...

A leaf teacup spins, Lazy in the air, falling, The cold ground opens. Today, we gorge on turkey and stuffing, football and family, and give thanks for all the bounty we receive. For that spirit of togetherness, I am most grateful. 2016 has been a very good year for me. I’ve signed new contracts, traveled all over the country, communed with friends and family. I am so thankful, for so many things. Pencils and notebooks, words and ...
