A Case of the Mondays

Didn't sleep well last night. Jason not happy. Jason tired. Time to put on my flair and go to work.

Anyway, as promised, here is Chapter 4 of THE REAL LIFE OF JOHN GILLIS. The first three chapters can be found here, and I'll also post a link on the sidebar for people who want to catch up (or print them out and mail them to their friends and family in lieu of a greeting card).

Tomorrow I'm trying something new which I'm hoping will become a weekly feature which I call "Tuesdays With Editor." The goal is to help newbie writers and/or curious layfolk know more about the publishing industry which can be murkier than New York City tap water. I'd like to be more helpful than form rejects that say, "read Writers Market."

So if you want to know how books are bought, how contracts are negotiated, what the publication process is like, or what the juciest publishing gossip is (hint: it all involves Judith Regan) drop me a note. And if I don't get any questions, I'm going to make up my own. And they won't be pretty.

So again if you have any questions about publishing, editors, agents or whatnot, email them to me at, or post them in the comments section. If you'd like to remain anonymous, say that in your email. I'll have the best questions along with responses up tomorrow.

Unless I can't sleep well again. Then all bets are off.
