Thanks for the heads up on this product. Anything that takes the tedium out of revision is worthwhile. It leave time and energy for crafting a story rather than picking up the details of the writing.

I see you are pulled in many directions, too. I'm sure you truly feel the winds of guilt as I do. I guess they are going to blow no matter what we do. The main thing is that we don't let them mess up our hair. :) Glad I found you. I've enjoyed perusing your blog. Perry, Thanks for the comment on my blog post.

Comment on Writing a series by mokie http://paperboxbooks.com/blog/2010/01/writing-a-series/comment-page-1/#comment-76 mokie Sun, 18 Apr 2010 22:26:23 +0000 http://paperboxbooks.com/blog/?p=166#comment-76 "In a series it’s normally not a good idea to branch out to different audiences – I can’t think of one instance where this has worked commercially." Laurell K. Hamilton, perhaps--she branched out and hit a rising trend in the romance genre. Though she argued it was just character growth, fans and marketers called it a genre shift from fantasy/mystery to paranormal romance, and that's the downside, too. The move was commercially successful not because she added to her old audience but because she replaced it with a much larger one, jettisoning (and embittering) SF/fantasy readers who weren't interested in reading a romance series; there's still a nasty rift, between fans who don't get the old books and fans who don't like the new books. “In a series it’s normally not a good idea to branch out to different audiences – I can’t think of one instance where this has worked commercially.”

Comment on iPad reviews – had enough? by Moira Young http://paperboxbooks.com/blog/2010/04/ipad-reviews-had-enough/comment-page-1/#comment-72 Moira Young Tue, 13 Apr 2010 17:01:02 +0000 http://paperboxbooks.com/blog/?p=416#comment-72 I'm staying well away from e-readers as a rule, for now. I'd rather wait and see how things go. And then, when I do get something (because I know I will eventually), it'll be when my cell phone is up for renewal.
