Side Projects

The Next Best Book Blog recently featured me in their "Where Writer's Write" series; my piece (about the trials and tribulations of the train-bound author) is up here. 

This gets at one of the unfortunate realities of Tortoise Books--it is, for now, a side project. Still, I'm hoping to grow it into something larger, and I'm working and planning along those lines. And even side projects can be expertly executed. I'd write an awesome list of the key things to keep in mind when you're trying to have an excellent side project, but my friend Scott Smith (a.k.a. "Our Man in Chicago") beat me to it.

And in the hopes of turning this into something more than a side project, we're applying for a grant. I'll admit, it does feel kinda uncool to be asking for money. But to quote the immortal Lone Star from the epic Spaceballs, "We're not just doing this for money...we're doing it for a SHITLOAD of money." So if you'd like to help us out, you can vote very easily here.

Many thanks...onward!
