Possibly the funniest thing I've read today (no really: read the seller's notes and the questions and answers at the bottom.)

What's really blowing my mind is that in 8 hours, the bidding has gone from 99-pence to 75,500 British Pounds.  Clearly, just about everything past a few hundred pounds is a joke-bid that won't be paid, but it's really out of hand, with another 9 days to go until bidding closes.

Today PuppyJack and I walked 2.3 miles from home to the site of the new library and back home again via the backside of the old firehouse. Uphill all the way home. It took just over 50 minutes. I consider this pretty damned good. And now I am sweaty and disgusting. But Jack is more disgusting, since he keeps outgassing... (help... Labradork farts are the worst!)

Never thought I'd say this: the screenplay is kicking my ass.

I'm usually big and detailed with description and that's one thing you can't be in this format. Nor can you be long and lyrical in writing action. But you can't just throw it down without any feeling or art--it still has to sing. It just needs to sing in the most minimalist and impressionistic way possible. At high speed.

I thought I had lost one of my Lamy fountain pens. So I ordered a new one from the Goulet Pen company. It shipped yesterday. Today I found the missing pen under the passenger seat of my truck. But I can't complain--you can never have too many fountain pens!

This is an interesting idea. Five minutes is pretty metal. The downside being, the ability to whip out a flash piece from a prompt in 5 minutes is not necessarily a good indicator of the ability to write a novel in 6 months. Still....
 
Hey.. um... ya'll... Why haven't we done something like this? Surely there's a way we could do something like this. Because it is awesome. 
In Peru, where it's hard to get a book contract, young writers put on wrestling masks and duke it out in the ring. But instead of wrestling, they're writing short stories, in front of an audience - on a clock.

Oh my goose! That's my first book right there on the banner! (See Kat Squeeeee like a mad, squeeing thing!)
I'm a fiend for crime fiction: the twisted plots, the dangerous characters, the desperate situations...it provides a rush few other genres can match. I especially love it when crime writers aren't afraid to let their stories get weird—some of them border on horror or fantasy already, with

"He therefore went to a scientifically rigorous extreme for his next experiment, a level not usually expected in nutrition studies." Apparently you don't have to be as rigorous with a nutrition study. Interesting.... 
In one of the best examples of science working, a researcher who provided key evidence of (non-celiac disease) gluten sensitivity recently published follow-up papers that show the opposite. The paper came out last year in the journal...

Me in conversation with the redoubtable +Monica Valentinelli:

MV: Insert how badly I want to see Kat write a fantasy epic!
KR: Me? Write epic Fantasy? Fuck no! I hatez it! I hatez it like FIRE! especially if it has elves.
MV: Dude, this is why I'd want to read it. Because it wouldn't be Tolkien, it be the ALMIGHTY KAT RICHARDSON.
KR: snort It would probably be about spies, whores, and assassins who are actually dragons in disguise, trying to undermine the Human Hegemony in the city of Marvelous Under Fuckwad.
MV: Dude! QUIT TEASING ME! :-p

Good thought, that. Kickstarter, Patreon, Indiegogo, pick a crowdfunder. Perhaps teasers on a blog or website somewhere.

[...] there’s also a way in through pure sweat equity — working your way up through the ranks at small wineries. The current golden era is fostering a roster of talent with their own projects. Today he’s the assistant winemaker at Napa’s White Rock Vineyards, but his own small Aluvion label is an homage to that Clarksburg legacy.

Story
Tagline
Bestselling author of the Greywalker novels.
Introduction
I write the Greywalker paranormal detective novels. I grew up as a theater brat and bookworm. Long ago I worked at the Southern California Renaissance Pleasure Fair as an actor and dancer. For pay, I used to work as an editor and I've worked on course development for the Gemological Institute of America, technical documents and sales materials, and magazines for both trade and consumer groups.  I've lived on sail and motor boats and I'm married.  Until a few years ago we had a cat and a pile of ferrets who have since passed on. Currently we are under the furry thumbs of two yeti-hunting hounds: Belladogga Sniffington (pibble) and Jack Pupikins (Lab/bête noir), but I'm still an advocate of California Ferret Legalization.
Bragging rights
Nine Urban Fantasy novels published by ROC as of August 2014 with more stuff in another series on the way!
