Summer 2015 Review Contest, by Clare Dugmore
Summer is officially here! Now that schools have broken up and with many people off to the beach, it’s the perfect time to catch up on some vacation reading. CQ always has a plethora of great titles for you, many of which are often on sale (like our current 99 Cents LGBT Pride Sale)! But […]
Silent Clarion, Chapter Fifty-Four, by Matthew Graybosch
It would have been nice to have ridden the rest of the way to Fort Clarion in comfort, but that’s not how matters worked out. With just over a kilometer left to go if my estimate of the distance had been correct, the jeep ran out of fuel. The engine sputtered, running on the last […]
It’s All in Where You’re Standing: Point of View, by Clare Dugmore
It’s All in Where You’re Standing: Point of View by Samantha Bryant Stories come from a lot of different places. Some writers begin with a character. Or a line. Or a plot point. A setting. Dialogue. A scene. Stories grow from many different kinds of seeds, which is part of why the garden of literature […]
Part Ten, by Robert J Defendi
Cliché. So there. First off, some business. We’re not out of material yet, but we’re catching up. I don’t want the blog to go off the weekly schedule, and I haven’t decided what I’m writing in the off weeks. Perhaps, “Plotting Your Next Novel.” Feel free to ping me on twitter (@robertjdefendi) or on Facebook […]
Batman Arkham Knight Review, by Jason Purdy
Batman as a character is something of a conundrum. Batman, as a game, is very simple indeed. The caped crusader adheres perfectly to the video game experience, while Superman remains to games as chalk is to cheese. Rumours are abound that Rocksteady are tackling a Superman or Justice League game in the future, but my […]
Silent Clarion, Chapter Fifty-Three, by Matthew Graybosch
Gently pushing Mike aside, I checked the screens myself. His saying we had a problem was an understatement worthy of Shakespeare. Sheriff Robinson was there, and his broken arm looked like it worked just fine. He waved his hands as if conducting a sledgehammer symphony, directing his deputy to gut the interior of the shop […]
Part Nine, by Robert J Defendi
Cliché. There, now that’s done and I have something to copy and paste. So we signed contracts. Everything was all squared away. I was a contracted novelist. A lot of things happened in a very short time. First, there were the introductions. I received an email from Lisa Gus to me about a dozen other people. In […]
Silent Clarion, Chapter Fifty-Two, by Matthew Graybosch
Stunned by Petersen’s words, I couldn’t help but stare at him a moment. “Are you absolutely sure you want to confess? If you had an attorney present, and they were at all competent, they’d be yelling at you to shut your bloody gob right now. The Society might use your words as evidence against Robinson […]
Part Eight, by Robert J Defendi
The biggest argument against putting the word “Cliché” in your title is having to copy an paste it into every blog an bit of social media that doesn’t have an auto-correct feature. I know. You weep for me. So lets take a step back in time. I wanted to end the last blog post on […]
