I always love meeting with and talking with my readers. If you would like to arrange a reading or signing, or if you have a blog or podcast you would like me to appear on, please get in touch!

Over on Aron Joice's site, I'm talking about the evolution of my writing career as well as living and working "in the moment", which as a writer takes some doing. (Click the link to the left to read!) (January 2014)

One piece of feedback I've heard quite a bit is that ebooks don't work well as gifts. Sometimes, you want to have something tangible. That is why I've dedicated this year to getting more of my work out in paperback.

Being in demand…

I just received a request to do an interview on a website. I’m always happy to receive such requests because, hell, it’s nice to be wanted.
But, you know, I’ve been getting more of these emails lately. Either they’re from websites or they’re from editors or theaters or other people, and on and on.
And it’s nice. Really.
The only problem is, I’ve come to realize that while I may be more in demand these days I am in demand from people without money. Or, at least, nobody is demanding I take their money.
That’s the kind of “in demand” I would like.
“Hey you! Mr. La Salle! Take this check. We demand it!”
That wouldn’t suck.
I suppose that’s the next step. You know, if I ever get to the next step.
Right now, it’s kind of nice to be in demand from anyone, even if they don’t have the cash. Maybe it means I’m liked or admired or even seen as a cheap resource. Hell, I’ll take it!
Because the only thing worse than being in demand… is not being in demand.

Post Climate Change… the genre…

So, I realized today, as I wrapped up the rewrites on my second Fun To Grow On book, that I had written my first Post Climate Changenovel. The book takes place in the near future and, considering that we’re already feeling the effects of climate change in our time, climate change is an element that is essential to the story.
And I realized this may become a new genre, along the lines of the Dystopian novel. The exception here is that, in Dystopian writing, the world is in shambles due to some mad man’s actions. In Post Climate Changewriting, there is no single mad man. The atrocity has been perpetrated by a society that believes it is acting in a perfectly sane manner – though they are not, of course.
As Global Climate Change makes a mess of our world, we only have ourselves to blame. But, as writers, we are faced with the task of making some sense of it.

Some final words on Dreams...

For the last three years, I've been writing each month on the topic of Following Your Dreams over on Recovering The Self. Now, I've decided it is time to move on. Before I do, however, I thought I would post a link over here to share this final chapter with you good people.I know I don't normally post links to Recovering The Self over here but this final article is special to me. It sums up so much of what I've been saying and I hope you find it worthwhile.You can find the article here:http://www.recoveringself.com/guest-blogger/ken-la-salle/dreams-by-ken-la-sale Posted: Thu 3rd of April, 2014
