Giveaway of my book Departure from the Script, plus glass coasters

My latest novel (or rather novella), Departure from the Script, has been out for a month now, and it’s doing incredibly well. To celebrate that and to say thank you to my readers, I’m giving away two signed paperback copies and two really cool glass coasters. These coasters look like the clapperboards that are used in movie making and display the book’s cover. I signed them both with a silver marker. Personally, I think they’re almost too nice to be used as a coaster, but then again, maybe I’m just biased ;-) If you want to participate in the giveaway, …

Departure from the Script is now available!

My newest novella, Departure from the Script, is now available as an e-book. You can read an excerpt here, buy the mobi (Kindle) here and the epub and pdf here. This is not one of my “War and Peace” length novels, but at 52,000 words, it’s fairly long for a novella and could be called a short novel. It’s set in Hollywood and first started out as a short story, which was published under the title “The Morning after.” But my muse and my readers demanded that the main characters get more attention, so I set out to write another …

Writing Hours in May 2014

Another month is over—and it’s been a busy one! I finished the edits for my novella Departure from the Script, which will be published in about a month, and worked on its German version, Liebe à la Hollywood (sadly, the title, as is so often the case, doesn’t translate well). Otherwise, May was the month of short stories…or maybe I should say: it was supposed to be. I wrote a new shape-shifter short story titled Pigeon Post. At about 13,000 words, it’s a nice, long one, almost heading into novella territory. Then I got started on the short story for …

Writing Hours in April 2014

It’s hard to believe that it’s May already–which means just one more month until I’m traveling to the US to do some research, meet friends I haven’t met in person yet, and go to the GCLS conference in Portland! April has been a pretty great month for me. Conflict of Interest has been published and is selling well. And now that I’m through with moving and furniture assembly, I thankfully have more time to write. I added 25,000 words to my new novella, Departure from the Script, which by now has grown into an (albeit short) novel. Departure from the …

Writing hours in March 2014

Wow, what a month! I recently moved into a new (bigger) apartment. Even though it’s in the same house where I lived before, it’s insane how much work was involved, so I again didn’t get as much writing done as I would have liked. When I thought a full-time writer would write full time, I must have been delusional Still, I can’t complain too much. After all, I published a new novel, Cabernet und Liebe, (the German translation of Something in the Wine), wrote a new short story (which will be published in an anthology edited by Andi Marquette and …
