I Have a Coin

I Have a Coin I have a coin I deem a treasure.One side bears the sign of extinction,And the other, an instance of nature.But it’s not a coin; it’s a seal,And the meaning of this distinctionIs the unbearable sadness I feelWith experience, or with closure. It seems like a double exposure,But the knowledge of impermanenceBleeds into the ideal likenessOf mortality in its eminence—To yield a vibrant pictureOf a creature’s essential brightnessAs it burns for life without censure. --Rob NeufeldSee More

Hidden Scars - Sam Blackman and Black Mountain College

I don't know if this is true for my fellow writers, but proofing can be the most difficult part of the process.  I received the ARC today for October's Sam Blackman Mystery and will begin the last review for typos or formatting errors that have eluded my editor, my copy editor, and myself.  Amazing that there is always something that the brain "fixes" and we don't see.Hope springs eternal that the October release will be typo-free.  The mystery is set against the historic backdrop of Black…See More

Intellectual Rights have the same legal status as property rights. . .What a novel concept?

Pardon the pun!

 

Is anyone else having issues with the public perception of the intellectual rights to a given book as belonging to anyone who purchases a book or even checks a book out from a library to do with what a reader wishes? 

 

I've spoken to other writers who have these issues arise because many readers do not realize that intellectual rights are exactly…

Tuck Reader

Rob et al.--Just wanted to mention the Tuck Reader, an Internet publication of fairly recent vintage which is doing some interesting and innovative things in covering the Tuckasegee River drainage from Cashiers to the southwesternmost parts of Swain County.  It's a novel concept with two talented guys toting the load.  I'm pleased to be writing a weekly column, "Mountain Musings," and I love the idea they've pretty much given me free rein.

At City Lights Saturday 1/22 at 2:00 without my appendix

Last time my angry appendix kept me from my reading/signing/whatever you want to call it at City Lights - I ended up in the emergency room at 2 in the morning and when I asked the doc if I could make it to City Lights for my thang, he just laughed!

 

So, this Saturday, the 22nd, at 2, I will be there with my new book Sweetie -- unless, of course, we have a bunch of snow and/or ice! Lawd!

 

Hope to see you there.
