Stay Calm and Buy Books on Black Friday

Amy Leibowitz Black Friday book prices books Cyber Monday marketing

It’s Black Friday, and many people will be out shopping today in big stores, searching for good deals. But did you know that many of your own friends may be self-employed, freelance, or independent? This is a good day to ask them if they’re offering any sales or deals too.

Marketing books is hard at the best of times. It requires most of us to put ourselves out there and ask people we know (or barely know) to buy our work. And a book is more than a product manufactured and sold by...

NaNoWriMo: Midway point!

Amy Leibowitz nanowrimo National Novel Writing Month writing writing advice writing encouragement

Happy Friday, and happy mid-National Novel Writing Month to those who are participating.

This is “over the hump” day, the halfway mark where, for many of us, things begin to flow. We’ve figured out who the Big Bad is, or we know what our hero has to do to finish strong. We’ve had an aha! moment. Words pour out of us like water, and we’re ready to go the distance.

It’s Halloween. What spooky adventures do you have planned? Are you dressing up for the occasion? My teenagers still like to go out with their friends.

Meanwhile, my daughter is going as a character from a web comic I’d never heard of. Her costume is fabulous, though, right down to the details. She did a great job. I won’t be...

Amy Leibowitz horror media

Ghosts in graveyards. Vampires and were-beasts. Creepy killer clowns. Demons in disguise. Zombies after your brains. Witches, wizards, and warlocks. Unexplained noises and things that go bump in the night.

This was always my favorite time of year. When my kids were younger, we tried to keep Halloween on the lighter side. Not so much now that they’re teenagers. My daughter loves horror, and she reminded me how much I enjoy a good scare.

This past weekend has been a fun one, in terms of the ooky-spooky. We finally went to see IT...

Visi-BI-lity: You are seen

Amy Leibowitz a m leibowitz awareness bisexual fiction bisexual novels bisexual visibility day bisexuality bisexuals

It’s Bisexual Visibility Day, and I’m here to talk about what that means in the context of books and writing.

A conversation with a colleague prompted me to think more about this question: Why don’t we see more books with bisexual protagonists in different-gender relationships? Not merely a passing mention or objectification, but bisexual people being visibly, proudly queer within the context of having a partner of another gender.

The answer to this is complex, and I’m not going to attempt to explain every part in detail. I will say that...
