From The Life Of Riley: Feb 2016

From The Life Of Riley: Feb 2016

Only a crow heckles me as I trudge through the icy snow covering the North Country Trail. When I left my house minutes earlier, the morning temperature read seven degrees. By now, the sun has risen above the ridge line. While not deep, the snow has drifted in parts and I take care to stay on the trail. Summer taught me a cliff looms. A gurgling brook comes into earshot and I can picture the frigid water tumbling beneath sheets of ice. The stark noises are highlighted amid the quiet of winter...

Interesting facts you might not know about an Eclipse

Interesting facts you might not know about an Eclipse

In England we experienced a partial solar eclipse on Friday 20th March 2015. The last full eclipse occurred in 1999 and the next partial eclipse we see will be in 2026. As a country we knew about it, we were expecting it, and we had been told what would happen. Imagine though what it must have been like to people in olden times to see their sun swallowed whole! Would the sun ever come back? Was the world coming to an end? Clearly many beliefs, fears and superstitions arose. So, we don’t...

Early one morning, Himself and The Author were due to take Her Outdoors, a boat of insubstantial length with a shiny new copper bottom, from the calm of the boat yard back to Brixham as small seaside town in South Devon. What could go wrong?

My Doctor the Imponderable

My Doctor the Imponderable

So ... I was in the supermarket with my better half, minding my own business somewhere between the detergents and the sanitary products, when my phone rang. It was our family doctor, speaking even faster than she normally does, asking me to come and see her as soon as possible. I told her I was in the middle of something (a supermarket aisle), that I would be available in about one hour, and would that be OK? ‟Yes, but you might have to wait a while. Don’t be late.‟

The Wooden Door

The Wooden Door

Marden spotted the wanderer the moment he stepped into the line of stalls where the merchant had set up. You had to watch the little creatures. Fortunately, their method of colorful and often mismatched dress made spotting them easy. They looked like young teenage humans for the most part except that their eyes were a little more almond shaped, and they had a slight point to their ears. That was not what made them dangerous. Wanderers believed in trading fairly...

The Beast A Jules and Wells Story

The Beast A Jules and Wells Story

In the deepest niche of time something moved. Something that should not have existed there, but it did. Something that never should have been, but it was. It had been asleep. Now it was awake. That was not a good thing. Jules and Wells sat side by side on the edge of the Thames, watching sea gulls snap at scraps of bread a few kind sailors had tossed over the railing from their merchant ship to the always hungry creatures of the air. “We are like the sea gulls, Jules.” Wells said...

Happy Birthday To One Of America's Greatest Authors

24 January 2017 | 6:03 am Books - The Huffington Post

Today is Edith Wharton's 155th birthday, and I feel that she's almost like family. In my senior year of college, I read the Pulitzer-winning Wharton biography by R.W.B. Lewis and was impressed by Wharton's relentless drive to succeed as an author and to perfect her craft. She was a true artist, but also a woman tuned into the business side of writing, something that stuck with me as I launched my own writing career soon after. I read about a dozen of her books that year, amazed by her wit, her...


Brains, Sports, and Success: An Interview with Rick Peterson

23 January 2017 | 2:17 pm Books - The Huffington Post

Certain athletes perform remarkably well under pressure while others do not. For instance, the contrast between Peyton Manning and Ryan Leaf could not be more stark. But what separates the wheat from the chaff? And what lessons can the layperson learn how to succeed in high-pressure situations? Perhaps major League pitching coach Rick Peterson and leadership expert Judd Hoekstra can shed some light on this. The two recently wrote


Return of an Epic Fantasy King: An Interview with Tad Williams, Author of "The Heart of What Was Lost"

23 January 2017 | 11:23 am Books - The Huffington Post

When internationally bestselling fantasy author Tad Williams decided to write a second series set in Osten Ard--the world of his beloved Memory, Sorrow, and Thorn epic fantasy trilogy--it began on a dare. His wife, the editor Deborah Beale, suggested that the world of Osten Ard was rich with potential for a new series. Williams, for his part, insisted that he would only write a new series if there were, in fact, new stories to tell--and the story of Memory, and Sorrow, and Thorn was complete....

Why Does Goodreads Tout Fake Quotes?

Over a year ago, I contacted Goodreads to let the managers of the site know that the top quotation they list by George Eliot is bogus:It is never too late to be what you might have been. Yes, you've seen it attributed to Eliot everywhere: Twitter, Facebook, Pinterest, t-shirts, kitchen magnets, mugs, bookmarks, tote bags, tattoos. But there's no source. I read George Eliot in college religiously, read Eliot biographies, too. She was a major inspiration to me as a budding writer. So the first...

I believe you can say to the founders of this great nation. "Here I am. A youth. A young tree. Whose roots were plucked from the hills of Lebanon. Yet I am deeply rooted here. And I would be fruitful.Gibran's message to young Americans of Syrian origin (Abu-...

Anecdote

Don't You Know Who I Am?
by Christina Surretsky from NJ
like 3dislike 0report 0

My story starts when I followed the career of indie author Amanda Hocking who landed a publishing deal. I requested tickets when I heard she was going to be on Anderson Cooper’s daytime talk show. As part of the request, the form asked “how were you influenced by Amanda?” I wrote about how I was inspired to write by her success.

A few weeks later I got a call from the show asking if I'd like to be the “special surprise ‘super fan’ guest” for Amanda Hocking.

Um, YES!
The day of, I got the star treatment (hair/makeup) and did the requisite producer run-through to make sure I was coherent and concise. There was some stage direction: “Listen, Amanda is great. But she’s very laid back and low key, so you need to bring ALL the energy to this. ALL THE ENERGY! Be PASSIONATE! ENTHUSIASTIC! But be yourself.”
Even though this is the diametric opposite of myself, I agreed.
And there was this piece of additional direction: “When you get onstage HUG Amanda. Even if she doesn’t get up, YOU PULL HER UP! HUG her!”
I even practiced my hug.
Soon I was placed in the audience. Then they brought Amanda out. After a little chitchat between Anderson and Amanda, I was brought up. Given the look on her face, I realized she probably was hoping I wasn’t a stalker who would follow her back to her hotel. (I didn’t. She ditched me.)
As directed, I went up and I HUGGED Amanda Hocking. But, Amanda Hocking, being the professional that she is, was totally cool, in spite of not expecting my hug, my stalking, or me.
This event pushed me to finish my book. So thank you Amanda Hocking for being such an inspiration. If ever see you again, I promise I won’t hug you. Unless you want me to.
