Imagination doesn't just mean making things up. It means thinking things through, solving [problems] or hoping to do so, and being just distant enough to be able to laugh at things that are normally painful. [Some people] would call this escapism, but they would be be entirely wrong. I would call fantasy the most serious, and the most useful branch of writing there is.

Book Winner

Thanks everyone who entered the free book-drawing, and welcome to all my new followers! Wow, everyone wants to get their hands on The Clockwork Three. Of course. It's a great book. Even if you didn't get it free, you should go buy yourself a copy.

As a little introduction if you're new to the blog, I am a fiction-writer in the process of shopping my stuff. I have an agent, so I let him do most of the work there, while I do the work of writing books.

I love to read, love to write, love all things bookish. Here on the blog, I write about  the writing process, review books I liked, talk about the life of a writer, and try to give away a book a month. The drawings are small, so your chances of winning are always pretty good.

My rules for give-aways: must be books I've read myself and loved, with great stories and beautiful sentences. They aren't always the hot sellers, but I swear they're worth your time. Because there are so many books out there. And so few minutes in a day.

Ok, the drama moment. 

The winner of the give-away is...............ALEETHA.

Congratulations, you now own a copy of Matthew Kirby's Clockwork Three. Email your address to me at ejjube at gmail dot com and I'll get your book in the mail ASAP.

Thanks for participating! Talk to all y'all around the blog soon.
