In one month I’m to give a reading not far from where I live. It’s high time I started preparing. (Did you know that presenters of TED talks prepare for months? For fascinating links on this process: go here, and here.) A reading is not a reading: it’s a…
The first thing to understand about preparing to give an author reading is that it should not be a "reading" at all, but a talk with a few short readings.

Coffee addiction and writing output, writers who are also artists, the messy revisions of the greats and how to make a quill pen ... a few of the links I've found of interest this week.

I love to listen to a podcast while exercising, doing chores or driving. I’ve become an enthusiast of a number. (See the ones I recommend below.)  A friend who is new to the technology asked me how to go about subscribing to one. For those of you who are…

Now that's just silly - how can you ever have too much nutmeg? My food is 40% nutmeg by volume. Just like my writing ;)

What makes for a good author reading?

My talk on my novel Mistress of the Sun, plus revelations on 17th century underwear (or the lack thereof).

Introduction
I'm the author of four novels

The first three, The Josephine B. Trilogy, are internationally best-selling novels about Josephine Bonaparte, now published in 17 countries (last time I checked). Over a million copies sold, the Trilogy goes through entire families like a flu. 

My most recent novel, Mistress of the Sun, was deemed “dangerously seductive"—a review quote I love. It too made bestseller lists and is presently published in 9 countries. 

Fascinated by the junction of historical fact and fiction, I am writing another novel set in 17th century France, this one about the cut-throat theatre wars of the period—Corneille! Racine! Molière! (Yes: I'm overwhelmed with research.) Naturally this novel also involves yet another of the Sun King's lovers as well as a witch.

Something of a Net junkie, I blog, tweet, tumblr and now, Google Plus. 

For more on all of the above, see my website.
