Writing Resolutions For the Coming Year

Another year is winding down, and I know that this week all of us are more likely to be concerned with family and friends, big meals and gift-giving, than with writing. That’s as it should be. But for just a moment, I would like to pull your attention — and mine — back to the […]

Thoughts on Giving a Reading

Many years ago, when I was still new to the writing profession, I was put on programming at a DeepSouthCon.  I was flattered, nervous, excited — but mostly nervous.  In part, my anxiety stemmed from the fact that the programming committee, in addition to putting me on several panels, had given me a reading, and […]

A Quick Guide to Making the Most of Conventions

A week from now, two of the biggest conventions in American speculative fiction will begin.  WorldCon opens in San Antonio on Thursday, August 29, and runs through Monday, September 2.  The next day, DragonCon opens in Atlanta; it also runs through Monday.  Both are huge events — DragonCon attracts a much larger crowd, but WorldCon […]

The Little Details that Make Historical Fiction Come to Life

Thieves’ Quarry, the second book in the Thieftaker Chronicles, my historical urban fantasy series, set in pre-Revolutionary Boston, came out from Tor Books on July 2, and is now available from all booksellers as well as Audible.com in audio book format. It was a fun book for me to write, not least because I am […]

The Book I Didn’t Write

Thieves’ Quarry, the second book in my Thieftaker Chronicles (which I write under the name D. B. Jackson) will be released by Tor Books a week from today.  I’m excited, of course, and nervous as well.  I think the book is my best thus far, and the reviews have been excellent.  But one never knows […]

Why Boston? A Plea For Support

Let me start with this:  For those of you who don’t know, I am hosting a fundraiser/giveaway to benefit the victims of the Boston Bombing through the One Fund of Boston.  The details on the fundraiser and how the various giveaways work can be found here:  http://www.firstgiving.com/fundraiser/DBJacksonThieftaker/thieftakergiveaway  You can also make your donation at that […]

Three Authors Who Got Me Started

I am on the verge of finishing the manuscript of the third volume in my Thieftaker series (written as D. B. Jackson).  The book is tentatively called City of Shades, and it will not see light of day until the Summer of 2014 (book 2 in the series, Thieves’ Quarry, will be out on July […]

The Loss of Another Bookstore

Last summer, during my Thieftaker signing tour (as D.B. Jackson), I did a signing at a small independent bookstore called Between Books.  The store, which has been open for over thirty-three years, is the brain-child and passion of Greg Schauer, a terrific person who loves books and loves the SF/Fantasy genre.  At my signing, I […]

Why Do We Bother?: The Quest for Accuracy

I posted something on Facebook the other day about some of the research I’ve been doing as I prepare to write the third Thieftaker book (under the name D.B. Jackson), City of Shades, which I’ve recently contracted with Tor.  (Yay!)  I’ve been trying to figure out the locations of the barracks for the various British […]

‘Tis the Season

We’ve reached that point in the year, when everyone is rushing about hither and yon, when we scarcely have time to breathe, much less to write well-reasoned blog posts and/or comments.  Therefore, I’ll keep this post short and sweet, and I’ll ask a single question: What speculative-fictional gifts are you hoping to give or receive […]
