Ooh, can I get in on this? 

Yesterday I posted my latest Monday Microfiction installment.  So far, all stories have been written by me, but I'm always looking for contributors!

    Today on Bibliophilic Blather: What's the difference between "affect" and "effect?" Also, is "irregardless" a word?

    Today I've posted a video of Stephen King talking about the demise of short fiction. http://www.rynedouglaspearson.com/stuff/2010/10/8/stephen-king-on-short-stories.html

    Great find, Ryne.

    You would think it would be the opposite of what King says; as people's attention spans decrease, the short story should be the perfect length. Too bad it is not.

    Thanks,
    Karen

    I posted more sales numbers since I lowered my price to 99 cents.  Things seem to be slowing down a little lately, but I'm still very happy with the numbers.

    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.

    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.

    As usual lately, I talk about anything but writing on my current post at Wysardessence: A Fantasist's Reality. This time it's about paper and unreasoning needs, with photographs of my obsessions.
