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 […]

On Editors and Revisions

For the past two weeks or so, I have been revising the second book in my Thieftaker series, Thieves’ Quarry (written as D.B. Jackson). Revisions are an essential part of writing.  Every professional writer has to do them; every aspiring writer should.  I revise at several different points in the development of a novel:  I […]

A Father and Writer Looks At Violence In His Books

I’ve just returned from a signing tour for Thieftaker.  All told now, I’ve done nine signings in the nearly three weeks since the book’s release. I get a lot of questions at bookstore events — Where do I get my ideas?  What is my daily writing routine like?  Stuff like that.  But quite often I […]

Blending Mystery and Speculative Fiction

Thieftaker, which I am publishing under the name D.B. Jackson, comes out one week from tomorrow. Finally. Those of you who know me, or who have been following my posts here at the SFNovelists blog, know that I’ve been writing and talking about this book forever. It certainly seems that way to me. It goes […]

A Post In Which YOU Tell ME About Self-Promotion

This is a totally self-serving post, even more than usual.  I have a new book coming out in just under six weeks, and I am wondering if all of you readers out there can suggest ways in which I might convince you to buy my book.  Seriously.  Self-promotion is one of those things that authors […]

Characters Striking Out On Their Own

I’ve written before about how my characters sometimes surprise me, doing or saying things that I had not anticipated. At times they have subtly steered by narrative in directions I hadn’t anticipated; on occasion they have taken my books in radically new directions, rendering useless outlines for the the second half of a novel, or […]

Books and Movies, Movies and Books

Today marks the cinematic debut of The Hunger Games, and so I thought it might be appropriate to talk a bit about speculative fiction and media.  With Suzanne Collins’ book being the latest sf/fantasy YA to find its way to the big screen, with part I of The Hobbit soon to be making its debut […]
