More love for my Wolvie book

Road of Bones CoverIt must be the new movie’s influence that suddenly has my Wolverine novel, Road of Bones, in the blogs. This time it’s courtesy my friend Paul Kupperberg, who lists my book in his Bookgasm post about notable prose adventures based on The X-Men.


Here is the money quote (from the end of the article):

Mack … is an old pro at creating fast-paced, action-packed adventure tales, and he brings all his skills to bear on this story.

Not bad, not bad. Thanks, Paul!

Now I just need to figure out how to get some high-profile love for my upcoming original thriller The Calling

One crisis at a time, though.

50 Reasons No One Wants to Publish Your First Book

For anyone who has ever written a book, and especially for those who dream of one day writing a book but so far have hit nothing but brick walls, I recommend you read Bookgasm’s hilarious article, “50 Reasons No One Wants to Publish Your First Book” by Allan Mott. It’s funny because it’s true.

I can say that while pitching a book to an editor a few months ago, I really was rebuffed with explanations #4, #5, and #50. I’ve often said that #35 is the root of my frustration with the publishing world, and I think that most of the idiots who ask me to read or cowrite their brilliant unpublished idea need to take #48 to heart.

Go. Read. Laugh.
