  • "Judges of this year's Man Booker prize have been sent electronic book readers for the first time to help them work their way through more than 100 novels."
  • "Symptom #3: Rapid accumulation of dead bodies

    Solution: Reduce the number in the first chapter to just one. Then stop to expand context, describe either the killer or whomever discovers the body . Have at least two more scenes of non-violent activity before another body turns up."

    Good advice. Especially for writers.

  • "GalleyCat caught up with children’s writer Sarah Collins Honenberger (pictured) to talk about her book, Catcher, Caught. The author explained how her book engaged with J.D. Salinger‘s The Catcher in the Rye."

    Great interview with one of our local stars!
