Artwork donated by Pati Nagle. The Freelancer’s Survival Guide: Lies, Scam Artists, and Bullshit Meters (Networking Part Five) Kristine Kathryn Rusch Irony of ironies. If it hadn’t been for networking, I wouldn’t have lost an hour of my work time today saving one of my best friends from a scam artist. Not that he would have fallen prey entirely. My friend, whom I met in […]
Travel, workshops, exhaustion. Many things got in the way of my reading in February. February wasn’t the reading bonanza that January was. I did read a few clinkers—more than one all the way through. (Not because I felt I had to finish, but because there was something compelling about the book, just not anything I could recommend.) The books I did enjoy are listed below, […]
I have an impy streak. And when Kerrie Hughes asked me to write a story about guns and monsters, I somehow came up with this. Combining a writing workshop with a famous writer and a writing student and some monstrous behavior…well, you’ll see. You can get the book at your favorite bookstore, or you can order it here.
Artwork donated by Pati Nagle. The Freelancer’s Survival Guide: Groups Continued (Networking Part Four) Kristine Kathryn Rusch I am an inveterate group builder. I can’t help myself. (My dictionary, consulted because I can’t spell inveterate to save my life [you should have seen my first attempt], tells me that inveterate means fixed in habit and practice, particularly a bad one. Yep. That fits.) I build […]
The mystery imprint of Delos Books has just published my novel Hitler’s Angel in Italian. The book had a strange run in the U.S., which resulted in a tiny edition, almost a limited edition. It’ll reappear in English, in my preferred version, from the British publisher MaXcrime in June. In the meantime, enjoy the lovely Italian cover.
Finally, the e-book for Diving into the Wreck is available on Kindle. You can find it here. I’m not sure about other e-versions. Readers, please do let me know if you can’t find other formats. I have a hunch they will be available within the week. Thanks for your patience!
Artwork donated by Pati Nagle. The Freelancer’s Survival Guide: Groups (Networking Part Three) Kristine Kathryn Rusch After last week’s brief digression on risk–which is a topic I will return to, I promise–I’m back to networking. And this week’s topic? Groups. Ah, groups. This is the topic that I was surprised I missed, and yet when Carolyn Nicita proposed it, I realized the topic itself was […]
The Freelancer’s Survival Guide: Risks (Part One) Kristine Kathryn Rusch I know, I know. I had a plan and I’m not sticking to it. This is why I have become more and more unemployable as the years go by. I can’t even stick to my own plans, let alone plans someone else imposes on me. Of course, I respect deadlines, which is why I’ve been […]
Promise me that, when you look up this essay on the SmartPop website, that you’ll read the essay all the way to the end. And promise me that you’ll remember that I wrote it a number of years ago, so some of the references are out of date. Okay? Now that all of that is out of the way, check out “Batman in the Real […]
