I just received word that one of the book trailers I created for the The Pluto Diaries has become a finalist in the Rediscovered Books Book trailer Contest! Finalists are all videos created by authors themselves and the ones in my category are all Indie (self-published). Finalist videos will be played in a loop at a book trailer viewing party tonight, and customers in the store will have a chance to vote. Videos are also avail...

Here's an additional collection of quotes from Pluto, Former Ninth Planet, some inspirational, and some just plain comical. Some of these appear in The Pluto Diaries: Confessions of a Former Ninth Planet, tidbits of Pluto's hard-earned wisdom since his demotion to "dwarf planet" nearly eleven years ago.

The manifestation of months of hard work. There's nothing like seeing a huge manuscript and thinking, "I guess I did that." It grew by 3,000-4,000 words since the last dr...

The character of Neptune is based around his relationship with the objects in the Kuiper Belt and beyond. The planet's tendency to become perturbed and expel objects that come within its gravitational reaches seemed to me to be a good place to start developing the character of the eighth Planet Club member and Pluto's all-important next-door neighbor. It's not surprising, then, that Neptune quickly became a sort of villain who...

I think I've found an illustrator who can capture the humor of the Pluto Diaries and bring to life the 100+ cartoons I've dreamed up. He seems to be a professional sort, which is really the only kind to have, and I'm looking forward to working more with him. This is especially comforting given that my first illustrator left with no notice after only a few cartoons.  Granted, we had no formal contract, but it was still disappoi...
