Write often, read more. Some of the best words of advice we’ve heard from a fellow writer, lately. Dan Lewis, the great mind behind the highly addictive Now I Know newsletter reflects on reading, learning , writing, and the merits of Harry Potter, baseball, the Simpsons and Star Trek. First things, first. What’s the last thing you read?  I read a lot — occupational hazard of writing as much as I do! The last book I read was Ready Player One, and I loved it. Do you have any unusual writing rituals or habits?  I tend to write on the train a lot. It’s quiet and there’s not much else to do. It’s

She makes multiple narratives and difficult stories look much easier to tell and enjoy than we’ve known them to be in the past. Get a taste of Cari’s carefully chosen words at her blog–we like this post about signs and her son, check out our Book Review in Brief or just ask Amazon for a free sample of the new edition of Sparrow Migrations. Trust us–it’s worth a read or few. What’s the last thing you read? (It doesn’t have to be a book, could even be the label on your breakfast cereal, I suppose). After a long wait on my local

It doesn’t matter if you’re not a Southerner, and your father never forced you to crouch in a tree and eat cheap processed meat in pursuit of woodland creatures–Key’s true-life tales are hilarious, surprisingly relatable and may just make you grateful for (and more forgiving of) your family’s particular brand of crazy. What’s the last thing you read? (It doesn’t have to be a book, it could even be the label on your breakfast cereal, we suppose).  Technically, it was the question I am answering, which you typed into an email and which I had to read
