My latest blog at Do Some Damage went up to day. and it’s all about giving thanks to some great authors that have helped me as I welcomed SILENT CITY into the world. Here’s a sampling, but feel free to click through for the full piece.

Nothing is done in a vacuum – even something as solitary as writing a novel. That being said, I hate writing acknowledgements or thank-you posts. You always remember someone you’ve missed the second you post, print, whatever. But that’s what I’m doing here, so please humor me.

The idea to write about being grateful popped into my head as I wracked my brain about what to write this week. After a series of tutorials that while (hopefully) helpful, were about potential minefields in publishing, thanking some fellow writers seemed like a perfect palate cleanser.
