The Painted Lady is the latest novel from Joseph Falank. Mr. Falank is a teacher, a comedian, a New Yorker, and a documentary filmmaker. He is also a great writer. He crafts his words with a measured hand; his stories focus on the very personal journeys that many of us face: divorce, the death of a parent, adolescence, career, adulthood.
Kate Moretti's latest thriller, The Vanishing Year, marks a new transition for the New York Times bestselling author. With this novel, she is moving from a digital/print on demand publisher to a traditional publisher. This process represents one that so many independent and self-publishers dream about -- cracking into the work of traditional publishing.
My schedule is a bit challenging -- but it's never a bad thing as a writer to have too many deadlines. It just takes a lot of juggling, and since I'm relatively new at this, I'm still finding the right balance. So at the moment, "free time" is definitely a rare commodity. As is sleep -- especially as I get closer to my deadlines. Fortunately, I love my job, and don't mind the workload.
