Congrats to Calliope, who won a signed copy of Eve Silver’s new novel! *** Working hard on the novel, which means there’s not much to report. I’ve been getting out a little, though (apparently, there’s an international book festival going … [Read more...]
Guest Author: Eve Silver!
Earlier in Beijing: road rage and a fistfight outside a Starbucks, which resulted in one man being bashed over the head with a pot. Just another a day in the life of a writer! *** Today we have a wonderful guest at the blog: Eve Silver, who is here to answer some fan … [Read more...]
More from the Bookworm!
If you want books and food, free wireless internet, and a great place to hang out and work, the Bookworm in Beijing is the place to go. The signing/discussion was wonderful, and very intimate—just a small group of us sitting in soft chairs in the corner, talking comics, … [Read more...]

Quack if you love something.
I can’t remember if I posted this picture the last time I was here, but I’m having duck soup this morning for breakfast (made from the leftover duck carcass that we savaged last night at dinner), so I think it’s entirely appropriate to post it again. Nothing … [Read more...]
I arrived in China late this afternoon. It was a nice flight. I slept a lot, wrote, ate pretzels and drank orange juice. Now I’m on the couch, with my bad foot packed in frozen peas masquerading as ice. It’s hot here, and humid, and within two … [Read more...]
Flying back to Beijing tomorrow. I had intended to post quite a few things before my departure, but time—TIME! It caught up with me. I’ll be blogging and twittering (well, hopefully) from China for the next month. I have a book signing next week in … [Read more...]
