Killing your Characters

Originally posted on Nicholas C. Rossis:
I was reading the other day a fascinating post, Killing the Mary-Sue, by Chiyome. As I am currently debating killing a character or two in my WIP, the fourth book of my epic fantasy series Pearseus, her musings made me wonder about the role death plays in our works. Both Schism and…

Life Before and After the Internet

Originally posted on Nicholas C. Rossis:
As you know, I just came back from holidays and had over 1,000 emails to sort through.  We had booked a nice place by the sea, which advertised free wi fi on all premises.  As you have gathered from this blog post  –and from the impressive amount of emails…

Originally posted on Nicholas C. Rossis:
“The worst way to begin a novel: advice from literary agents“. That’s the title of a wonderful blog post by the Write Life. Literary agents are like ‘skilled readers’ who have gone through hundreds of novels, acquiring experience; they are also supposed to be in touch with ‘what people want’.…

Never having even heard of the term “Blog Tour” before and not knowing what it actually meant, I became involved in one supporting Alysha Kaye’s new book, The Waiting Room. I learned that… “A blog tour is when an author “visits” a bunch of blogs in a short…

So, who was Cyrus, King of Persia?

Originally posted on Nicholas C. Rossis:
A few days ago, I promised to write a post about Greek history and the story behind the book. As Frostie has noticed, the map of Pearseus is essentially that of Greece and Asia Minor. I even called my book Rise of the Prince, in a nod to Herodotus’ seminal…
