    I know I know I know I always say these supportive things but sometimes it’s hard to listen to myself. Recently – without realizing it! – I’ve been suffering from “first draft must be perfect” syndrome, and had to step back and actually look at myself and what I was doing. First drafts don’t have to be perfect. Write it 100x on the board.

  • Gareth Powell - #1 bestselling author of monkey erotica
    I had a bit of a surprise today. For some reason, Amazon has Ack-Ack Macaque: The Complete Trilogy listed under the category ‘Erotic Action & Adventure’, and it’s currently sitting at the #1 spot! As far as I’m aware, there is zero sexiness in the book. Which means some erotica fans are in for a bit … Continue reading #1 bestselling author of monkey erotica ... read more

  • Mercedes Yardley - The Day Facebook Killed Me.
    This is the tale of how I died. It was in November, because I had just voted in the presidential election. This little window popped up at the top of my Facebook account saying, “We hope people who love Mercedes will find comfort in the things other share to remember and celebrate her life.” Well. Well. I guess I’m dead. It was a massive glitch that affected quite a few people and Facebook fixed ... read more
