Other Writing

A collection of some of my other writings.  Most of these were originally blog posts, which is why they’re split into parts.

Author Commentaries (16 posts): A series of author’s notes on my Alex Verus novels.  These are meant for people who’ve already read the books and are interested in learning a bit more about how and why I wrote them, and what my thoughts are on them now.  Warning, there are spoilers!

The Alex Verus Ending (8 posts):  An explanation of why I ended the Alex Verus series as I did, along with some discussion of endings in stories in general.

Advice for Writers: Part 1/Part 2/Part 3/Part 4.  I occasionally get asked if I have any advice for would-be authors.  I’m not an expert, but here’s the (somewhat limited) advice that I can give based on my experience over the past twenty years.

The Process (Part One), The Process (Part Two), The Process (Part Three), The Process (Conclusion).  A lot of my readers have asked at some point or other why there’s always such a long wait between me finishing a book and that book being published.  If you’d like to know why, or are just curious about how one of my books gets written, here’s the answer.
