What I’ve Been Reading And How It Disproves Some Common Self-Pubbing Wisdom

Posted by Shannon Haddock on July 3, 2016 in InCryptid praise, Kingkiller Chronicles praise, Rants |

(Damn, am I good at short and pithy titles or what?) Long story short, I live in a place that is not exactly conducive to either reading or writing. To somewhat mitigate the negative effect this has on my sanity, I’ve been spending a couple of afternoons a week at the library. Now, was my […]

Five Star Reviews — The Name of the Wind by Patrick Rothfuss

Posted by Shannon Haddock on August 22, 2015 in Kingkiller Chronicles praise, Reviews, Uncategorized |

I discovered this book in possibly the weirdest way I’ve yet discovered a book.  I’d been watching The Guild . . . which, by the way, is far more entertaining when you’re not losing whole days of productivity to an MMO yourself . . . and, well, there’s only six seasons of it.  The dog was asleep […]

In defense of fun

How Do You Choose What To Read?

Works in progress, October edition

Posted by Shannon Haddock on October 17, 2014 in Kingkiller Chronicles praise, No More Lies, Writing process |

I’m changing the format to make this easier to read and a lot less stream of conscious. I’ve made very little progress in anything this month.  That’s a bit depressing.  I’m blaming Patrick Rothfuss.  I keep losing hours to The Name of the Wind.  It’s an awesome book that I highly recommend.  Anyway, NaNoWriMo is coming […]
