I never did get to The Emperor of All Maladies. They took away my library card because they found out I had moved to a different county and no longer pay taxes there. I'll have to buy it off of...

Yeah, there are a lot of LDS themed books -- I'd say it's a genre of it's own, with sub-genres. A lot of books about doctrine, and then a lot of fictional books about people who live the LDS...

Yeah, I would feel really weird, stopping by. I do follow a number of their authors on Facebook, including one who is also an editor there. We have mutual friends, inside of the writing world and...

Lin, your way seems so brave to me! I'm serious, haha. I have a hard time thinking outside of the box like that.

I have a few friends who have been published with the press, actually, and they're solid. They're a smaller imprint of a big company here in Utah. I guess that bigger company would probably be...

I finally sent my first query off to the publisher I've been watching for 4 years now. I waited for a week or two, knowing it would be at least 6, and got a post card saying that my book is under...

I recommend buying a copy of the Writer's Market. It's like a yearbook for publishers and agents, and lists what they're interested in.

My daughter has to read Under the Dome for school (which I think it really weird - Stephen Kind as required high school reading??).

Nameless, I LOVED the City of Ember movie. My kids read the books, but I haven't gotten around to it. They're on my list, though. You should let me know what you think when you're done.
