Welcome to IN THE FUTURE, TENSE the blog for author Carolyn Louise (CL) Anderson.
I’m a new author with my first novel coming out from Bantam Books this summer. I’m a full-time writer, and a full-time mom. When not writing or momming, I dance, I sing, I play the fiddle (for certain values of “play”). I also hike, camp and every so often, try to catch up on my sleep.
ABOUT MY BOOK
BITTER ANGELS is a space opera and a mystery and the story of a woman torn between duty, love and family. I call it John LeCarre in space.
Many thanks to David Pomerico and the Bantam art department for this very, very cool cover. BITTER ANGELS will be out this summer. You can be sure I’ll be posting here when I’ve got an exact date. If you’d like to put in a pre-pre-order, you can do so from Nicola’s Books.
ABOUT THE BLOG
As it turns out, I’m not very good at writing about my own life. Not on a regular basis, anyway. I can’t make up fables about my laundry, and my cat doesn’t even do amusing things. So, this blog will be about writing and reading; the art, the craft, and living the life of the full-time author. There will be conversation and reviews of books; old, new and Really Old. I read a lot, and a lot of different things, so there will be reviews of science fiction, fantasy, romance, mystery, history, biography and anything else that catches my eye.
There will be interviews with authors, agents, editors, songwriters and anybody else I can convince to talk to me. There will be posts about the art and craft of writing as I see it. There will be questions posed to other authors about writing and the writing life.
There will be posts about and reviews of the conventions I attend, and probably some of my other travels for fun, business and research.
This is the beginning, and the list of topics will surely expand.
The Facebook page is under construction, but there will be one and I’ll make an announcement when it goes up.
Yes, I Tweet. Sporadically, but I do Tweet as cl_anderson09. It’s hard to think of new things to say though, because the book’s not out yet, and I have a really boring cat.
