I have a guest post today at Claudie A.'s blog. It's a piece called "Science, Fiction & Truth" and I talk about some of my heroes and prejudices in science fiction, what goes into a “high concept” idea, and the Radium Girls. I really, really enjoyed writing this, and I would love if you checked it out. Oh, and she is giving away five free copies of my e-book.

Yesterday I asked people at my blog what areas of science scared them. Today it's my turn with... viruses! http://claudiea.blogspot.com/2011/06/sc ... e-out.html

For the record, the giveaway of David's Transfection continues until next Thursday, so you can still answer the above question on his guest post.

Ever had an idea just drop out of the sky to lodge itself in your skull? That sounds a bit more visceral than it really is, but there's definitely something oddly traumatic and surprising about them. Where did they come from? Why are they here? How can you possibly use them? Read more at http://harbingercodex.blogspot.com/2011 ... rises.html

Does your blog need a mascot?

This is the final part of my guide to digital self-publishing. I will be compiling all these steps into a free e-book for my blog-readers when I am done. It’s called Let’s Get Digital and is penciled in for release at the end of June.

Step Ten: What Happens When The Sales Just Stop?

Sometimes your sales just die. Sometimes they never take off in the first place. What do you do then?

Today's blog will show you how to look at your entire presentation in a dispassionate way, and reveals the greatest promotional tool available to any writer:
