Thursday, June 18, George's book "The Nick of Time" will be downpriced from Open Road Media: $1.99, US and Canada. One of George's funniest, and cleverest, time-travel books - George at his best.

George seemed to have two "periods" in his writing. This is from the earlier phase: light, clever, playing with ideas (I can't remember whether or not this is the one where they wrapped the Moon in duct-tape in order to crash it into the Earth...). The later phase - When Gravity Fails and its sequels - is darker and richer, with deeper characterization. When he was good, he was brilliant.

Still struggling with Facebook here, and trying to carve out time to start up a Dreamwidth account. Anyone who has insight about Instagram, please share.

When Gravity Fails is kind of mind blowing.
Re: Instagram--
I use it mostly to post pictures of my art, interesting cat photos, and (not lately) cool cosplays I'd see at shows. I know you can link it to some sales software and sell through it.
It is yes, almost entirely visual. You might follow some writers/actors who use it to see what they do. Rachel Caine (rachelcainewriter) is there, as is Robin Hobb (therealrobinhobb). It's a good way to stay in contact with fans--pictures of older covers, pictures of whatever you're doing (with commentary), seem to be pretty popular.
Glad to help with anything, feel free to email me!

I wish George had been around longer, to do more "Marid Audran" books, if nothing else. I enjoyed meeting him and you when you came to Iowa.
Just bought it on Kindle. Thanks for the heads up.
