Blog? LOL. I'm like that friend from college who shows up and crashes on your sofa. I don't have a blog of my own, but I guest blog several times a month. Sylvia Dickey Smith will host me Monday and I'll write about coping with Scatterbrain syndrome.

I actually have two blogs now that I post to fairly regularly and I'm surprised and pleased at the number of hits I'm getting on them both.  The Christian history one is averaging almost a hundred people a post now which I was stunned by so hopefully when the book is released, mid next year hopefully, I'll already have an audience for potential sales.  ;)

I just wrote about my casting about for the perfect blurb for The Usurper, and showed the main 3 or 4 that I've used. It's on My blog, and I'm asking what the best one is, or if there's a better blurb out there that I haven't thought of.

Today, "Editing for Grammarphobes" discusses homophones, word sets that sound the same, but have different meanings.

Here's the link.

Stephen King talks about whether creative writing can be taught: http://www.rynedouglaspearson.com/stuff/2010/10/14/can-creative-writing-be-taught.html

I love finding these writer interview snippets. Hope you enjoy watching them.

I posted something today that's a bit out of the ordinary for me, ruminating on the idea of "enhanced" e-books (with video, pics, links, etc.), and whether they're a good idea for fiction novels in particular. I'm really interested in hearing other readers' thoughts on the matter:

http://www.davidderrico.com/enhanced-e-books-do-books-need-video/

 Right Ascension & Declination, thought-provoking, action/adventure sci-fi.
 The Twiller, humorous sci-fi (Red Adept Reviews: 4.75 stars).

 Each is a Top 1,000 Amazon Kindle bestseller, for just $2.99
 Reviews, excerpts, & my blog can be found at www.davidderrico.com.

Screenwriter Joe Eszterhas talks about Sitzfleisch. You'll see what he means. It's good advice. Watch his interview HERE.
