I'm pretty much blatantly stealing the whole point of this post from Jeffrey Ricker, since I saw it on his blog and thought it would be good to boost the signal. The self-promotion signal, that is. Here's the situation. Got a Kobo for Christmas? Got one at some other point? Use the Kobo app on any...

Did you get a new Kobo for Christmas? Congratulations! I have one too. Although I usually read on my phone (using the Kobo or iBooks app) because it's always in my pocket, when I'm traveling it's nice to have all the books on my Kobo at hand, which is a lot. Looking for books to load onto your...

I love gadgets and technology, but in a lot of ways I'm a bit of a luddite. In the kitchen, rather than haul out the blender, the food processor, or the bread maker, I'd rather chop, whip, and knead by hand. My lawnmower at my old house was a reel mower (a model I continue to prefer, especially...

There's a conversation around pricing I've had a few dozen times where I like to draw a particular parallel. When the price of entertainment - specifically, a book - seems steep, I try to think of it in terms of a cup of coffee (or, in my case, tea.) If I get a tea from Tim Horton's, I'm paying...

I’ve got some great talks lined up for May, which I am very much looking forward to. May also sees me continuing to write the eleventh in the DI Andy Horton Mystery series, as yet untitled. The first draft is done but there's a great deal more to do yet before it's even half way decent. May...

My digital publisher's accountant recently emailed me a report of the sales of my ebook, saying, "Should you have any questions, feel free to email me." Well, as it happens, I had quite a few questions but ones that were too embarrassing to email her about. The first was those scary currency codes...

Today, I have the privilege of launching the Official Blog Tour of author T. K. Harris. She starts by sharing how her novel, Phantom Dreams, was born.It started with a dream. I know cliché right? But it really did. I had a dream that I was walking through a large crowd of people, surrounded by...
