This is supposed to be a writer’s blog, which means I have to blog about writer-y stuff. So here’s my version of the three Rs: (W)riting, Reading, and a little bit of Randomness.
INK-STAINED SCRIBE is the blog of author Lauren Scribe Harris. (She has freakin’ “Scribe” in her name for cryin’ out loud!) She covers all kinds of inspirational writer-y stuff, and, even better, she cohosts the Pendragon Variety Podcast, which is filled with entertaining and thought-provoking writing talk. Hopefully, more new episodes are on the way.

THE LOSTKIND by Matt Stephens is a real find. I’ll admit it: I’m a total sucker for fantasy stories about people secretly living underground beneath major cities. Neil Gaiman’s NEVERWHERE, the ‘80s BEAUTY AND THE BEAST series, Marvel Comics’ Morlocks, Futurama’s sewer mutant episodes, and, of course, the good ol’ Ninja Turtles. THE LOSTKIND is about a similar group living in secret beneath NYC, and the various ups and downs of protecting their home. It’s an episodic book, and appears to be structured similarly to a season-long TV series, with an ongoing arc running through each episodic chapter. It’s one of those things that shouldn’t work in a novel but in this case does.
