Please, judge this book by its cover

Good news for book clubs everywhere, the trade paperback edition of LOVE AND OTHER CONSOLATION PRIZES will be available June 19, 2018. Though it's available now for pre-order wherever you buy books. This particular story seems to be making a lot of people happy (much to my authorly delight). Hope you enjoy it. 


Weekend in Montana

Not to sound like a John Cougar Mellencamp song, but I like small towns.

Don't get me wrong I love visiting places like NYC, but I feel my dendrites benumbed by the minute when I'm in a BIG city. And my secret fear is that I'll wake up one day and be one of those people who can step over a pregnant homeless woman lying in the gutter just so I don't miss my train. So in answer to the frequent query of, "yeah, but what do you do in Montana?" here's a visual recap of the weekend.

The Books & Brews Book Club. Next month's selection: FROM HELL, the Alan Moore graphic novel.We read Out Stealing Horses, which is actually set in Norway and isn't really about horses.Just guys, books, and beers. 'merica!

Author Luis Alberto Urrea and his lovely wife Cindy, visiting from Chicago. Cormac McCarthy moment as we find blood on the trail in Glacier National Park.

Chayo takes the express elevator down the mountain.

Okay, weekend over. Back to writing.


A little something to read with your morning coffee

Had a cozy little online book chat last night. Just me, MJ Rose, and 193 intrepid readers talking about historical fiction and typewriters, among other things. Kudos to the maestros at BookMovement for orchestrating such an engaging event.

And if you missed it and wanted to see what all the hubbub was about, here's a recap.


What are you doing Tuesday? Let's chat

Ah, technology. I can now order a pizza online, find old grade school classmates, and chat with YOU via BookMovement.com. Okay, not just you, but you and other book lovers, plus author M.J. Rose. We'll be talking about historical fiction, writing tips, book club suggestions, and anything else that comes to mind.

Join us at 8 pm EST. And remember, there are no wrong questions, just wrong answers. So ask away.
