Here are some tweets I made 9 years ago, edited together with a little cleaning up. But I still think these things:

I don't believe the success of one person limits the chance of success for me or anyone else. Or that the sales of writer X limit my chance to sell too. I also don't consider myself an Artist. Writing is a craft, which may flower into art, but great writing cannot vault to that level without solid craft to support it. Maybe that's why I like Craftsman houses: the great examples can be appreciated as artistic and grand, but they are still houses, functional and lovely from craft. If in writing we illuminate something about humanity or bring the reader cause to ponder, does it should not matter what genre label was put on the book or where it was shelved. If a reader of Harry Potter wonders "Perhaps things are not what they seem in my own world...." is this moment less marvelous than if he'd been reading SLAUGHTERHOUSE 5, philosophy, or a book about quantum physics when he had it?

Hey, I'm talking about BLOOD ORBIT, noir novels, crime, writing, and crazy life in general with Rob Wolf over at the New Books Network!

Very nice review at the Seattle Mystery Bookshop newsletter online, today: "Blood Orbit is thought-provoking, dynamic, complex, and a hell of a lot of fun." Scroll about 3/4 of the way down to find Fran Fuller's complete review.

I was seriously missing the ocean, so I drove out to Ediz Hook at Port Angeles, and then onward with the intention of getting to Neah Bay, but it took longer than I could spend and I had to turn back at Sekiu, where the fog was coming in heavily due to the weird heat we've been having.

What the dogs do when they think I'm not paying attention.


Very long writing day Tuesday yields this (among other things):

Matheson stared down at the girl, panting. She’d fallen with her head dangling over the side of the glass bridge. She stared in horror at the tumbling water below, then screamed and thrashed so hard, he almost lost his grip on her.

And a slightly less-enthusiastic, but still good, review at the SciFiMovie page. Always interesting to hear what a reviewer liked and disliked (especially while writing the next book.)

A "Recommended Book" review for Blood Orbit at Dear Author. Always interesting to see what the reviewer liked and disliked.

Huh... how did I miss this...? Blood Orbit was mentioned at Bustle.
