Writing from Different Perspectives

A personal pet peeve of mine is when someone critiques a book by saying the author had no right to write from a certain point of view. Specifically, it’s the “men shouldn’t write about women” mantra that rubs me the wrong way, though I also feel the same way about other perspectives in general. There have been times when I have specifically ended up avoiding talking about something in a book simply because there are too many pitfalls for me to stumble into. When it gets to the point that people would rather not even address an issue or point

Joining International Thriller Writers (and a General Writing-as-a-Career Update)

Yesterday I came across a new (to me) writers organization: ITW (International Thriller Writers). I’m already a member of SFWA (Science Fiction and Fantasy Writers Association) and SCBWI (Society of Children’s Books Writers and Illustrators), having joined both soon after I first became traditionally published. I pay my dues each year to keep current on membership, but I honestly hadn’t thought much about it since I first signed up. So it might seem like a no-brainer that I should have taken the time to see if there were other organizations more tailored to the genre I’m currently writing in, but

A Family of Killers Cover and ARCs

I’ve known about this for a while, but I’ve been waiting to share it until we’ve been closer to the release date. At the beginning of the week, however, I got my advance reader copies (ARCs) for A Family of Killers in the mail, so I think the cat is well and truly out of the bag now. (Note: If you’ve been a supporter of mine on Patreon for a long time, and you’d like a copy of one of the ARCs, just shoot me a message, and I’ll get it to you on my dime. If you haven’t been

Binge Writing

I am anything but a binge writer. My approach is to make steady, consistent progress on a project until it’s done. Usually, that means I’m writing 1,000 words each day, six days a week. If I do that every day, I can get a 75,000 word draft done in about 3 months. It rarely works out that way, of course, because I end up ditching some of what I write, making false starts and mistakes that I have to backtrack to resolve, but it’s not too far off it. (There are sometimes when I make very big mistakes, and then

New Bryce Moore Books Incoming!

I’ve been sitting on this news for a good long while now, waiting for the chance to finally talk about this, but it only got officially announced recently. (I actually didn’t know it had been announced yet. You can’t find it on Google, though it seems it appeared in Publisher’s Marketplace. That’s as good an excuse as any to talk about it!) I have two new books coming out from Sourcebooks! The first one, A FAMILY OF KILLERS, is planned to come out in August, followed by another book a year later. Here was the news as it went out
