In this week’s Huffington Post article I discuss genres, and why they aren’t doing me any favors.
Every description of one of my novels eventually requires the use of the phrase mash-up. As in, “Immortal is a sci-fi contemporary fantasy adventure historical-fiction humorous first-person confessional mash-up.” This is mostly accurate, but makes people faint, so I usually just say it’s sci-fi/fantasy.
In the days and months ahead I’m going to be doing some crazy things, like (gasp) self-publishing some fiction. In my conversations with people who know much more about this sort of thing than I do, I’ve learned that I need to have a mailing list in order to quickly and easily notify all of you that–for instance–I just split an infinitive.
So I’ve created one.
If you are reading this and are interested in getting direct updates from me on all of the goings-on in my writing career, I urge you to sign up.
My sources are telling me I may have to provide a contest of some sort. I’ll work on that. Go sign up first, I’ll think of something.
