Projects I Follow

  • Writing Excuses is a collaboration between Brandon Sanderson, Mary Robinette Kowal, Howard Tayler and Dan Wells providing fast paced dialogue about writer's craft.  Have fifteen minutes to spare?  Give them a listen!
  • Kevin J. Anderson is the author of over 120 novels, 52 of which are best sellers.  Looking for a man who knows the craft of writing and the buisness of publishing?  Look no further!
  • In his Daily Kick in the Pants, Dave Farland provides insite and motivation regarding writing and publishing.  Never heard of Dave?  What a shame.  Did I mention that he runs the Writers of the Future contest?  Maybe you've heard of some of his former students?  Brandon Sanderson?  Stephanie Meyer?  Eric Flint?  Yeah, I think he's worth listening to as well.


  • This blog and the phoenix quill logo were designed and implemented by Megan O'Keeffe.  See more of her work at http://cargocollective.com/okeeffe.
