Episode 3 of PANDEMIC is up!
http://scottsigler.com/podcast/pandemic-episode-3/

EPISODE SYNOPSES:
Margaret Montoya’s life has fallen apart. After saving the world, she’s spent years as the target of endless Internet outrage for her role in the tragedy of Detroit. Her life is in shambles and she’s become a shut-in, staying in her house to hide away from the world. Her husband, Clarence Otto, was in the process of telling her their marriage was over when he got a call from Murray Longworth, the director of the Department of Special Threats. Now, Murray has come to her house to pay a visit — and it’s not a social call.

This week's FridayFix: Just how "real" are the relationships primarily formed online and at cons? Those weird people can't possibly be actual friends, can they?

This week's FridayFix™ is an interview with +Michelle Belanger, former star of +A&E's show "Paranormal State" and author of "The Dictionary of Demons," a big resource for my HUNTER HUNTERSON & SONS stories. We talk about her jump from TV and non-fiction to fiction, her days as a metal singer, and her experiences of publishers saying "but you're a girl writing action books — why don't you write a nice romance novel?"
At DragonCon 2015, I was on a panel with author Michelle Belanger, the author of DICTIONARY OF DEMONS. Since this book is a central source for future Hunter Hunterson & Sons stories, when I ran into her at DragonCon this year (2016), and discovered she had a new fiction novel out, I had to have her on the FridayFix. http://media.blubrry.com/scottsigler/media.libsyn.com/scottsigler/186_FridayFix___Michelle_Belanger.mp3 We talk about her books as...

A bunch of writers follow me on the social webs, so if you work with the words here's something for you to consider.
Did you know that certain skin tone descriptions can piss some people right the fuck off? We contracted a new editor to do the copyedit for my scifi/thriller EARTHCORE (out Nov. 29 in print, eBook and audiobook). This editor did a solid job. She’s quickly getting the hang of my particular style and the Siglerverse as well [...]

Thanks for the tip. I'd never heard of this before, but having read it, it makes sense. Cheers.

Going to +Dragon Con? Come see me, fool! If you're a true fan, the one you don't want to miss is "One For The Junkies" on Friday night at 10pm in Hilton 202. There will be many toasts. BYOB. For realz. It's fans just like you and it gets nuts.

Hey, you creative writer types, what do you think of this? This is a big level-up in the world of voice recognition, but even with the increase in accuracy I question how effective it can be for fiction writers.

For me, at least, I change almost every sentence as I write it, at least a few times, then go on, then come back and change it again, then delete that sentence or the entire paragraph and recreate it from scratch, etc. So it's not the recognition of words and sentences, it's the navigation back and forth through the draft, copying sentences and paragraphs and moving them somewhere else, etc.

Any of you think you could use voice rec to create short stories, novels, screenplays, etc?

In a face-off between voice entry and typing on a mobile device, voice recognition software performed significantly better. The results held true in both English and Mandarin Chinese.

I'm old. I need to feel the keys. My daughter even got me a mechanical keyboard for that "clack" and firm feel, and I know I can revise far faster with a keyboard. May be good for capturing ideas that invariably strike when you're nowhere near a keyboard, though.
