Over the Wires

A story on my recent Tor deal at SciFi Wire. Enjoy in all its self-referential linkability!

Congratulations! A book deal is always exciting. I got to your blog through MetaxuCafe and a comment you made about writing and big advances. Amen! I have a similar rant on my blog --more about the assumption that any schmuck can sit down to write and make millions with drivel: http://mdbenoit.com/blog/2005/11/04/perpetuating-the-publishing-fallacy/

I thought for sure you'd work in the words "Shut Up! Deal."

No, no. I save the bragging about money for my own site.

The Masada community? Veeeeery Innnnnteresting. I'm guessing your characters will be put in a situation where they are grossly outnumbered and in dire straits and they have to decide how to deal with survival.

My rabbi has always spoken out about how the story of Masada shouldn't be one that Jews are proud of. We are a group of people should be proud of the times they have surived persecution not when we martyr ourselves in the face of it. Or as my father is fond of saying during every holiday 'They tried to kill us all, they didn't win, let's eat"


I'm intertested to see how you tell this story.
