But I wanted to take a moment to think about projects that didn’t make the cut. Sometimes you write … More Where do you bury the bodies?

Interesting thing about this book is that I … More Just In Case You Haven’t Heard…
We’re down to the last few days before the official launch of Tesla’s Ghost on Feb. 28, and I am once reminded of how stories like this really come down to long stretches of dialogue, regardless of whether it’s intended or not.
