Single source, but some good data nonetheless - Common Writing Mistakes That Break Reader Immersion - http://ow.ly/BsHFO
Today marks the publication of the 50th review in my ImmerseOrDie indie book review series. For those who don t regularly follow it, the premise is simple: every morning I step onto my treadmill, open a new indie ebook, and begin my daily walk, reading the book for as long as I can maintain my immersion.

The conspiracy theory behind the destruction of the Death Star.  Was it an inside job? Watch a hilarious (and incredibly on-target) satire of conspiracy theory videos in general… that also skewers the childish illogic of the Lucas universe, with its chain of self-indulgent coincidences.  Of course, every point in the video is lifted from one of my riffs in STAR WARS ON TRIAL. (Which is even more on-target and funny, Brin assures you, with a perfectly straight face.)

My small press's next book cover. :D
We're very excited about our next release — a short novel by master fantasist Chaz Brenchley. Being Small is brilliantly creepy, too true to life to be full-blown horror, but deeply disturbing none...

Today Senator Warren grilled regulators about illegal foreclosures. As usual, she didn't hold back.

In the video, Warren says she's requested info from the regulators 14 times and has been ignored at least 9 of those times. She expresses dissatisfaction with this, but the key part of the clip is when she asks whether families who've been illegally foreclosed on will have access to information about their case in the event that they sue the Wall Street banks who foreclosed on them. The regulators won't say. Warren is just asking for more transparency and they won't give it. Unbelievable.
