The Dangerous World of TV Producing

Delivering notes to actors can be a dangerous job.  Acting is an emotional profession, and hearing that the choices you’ve made aren’t working can sometimes create tensions or hurt feelings. Fortunately, on The Expanse we have trained professionals who take criticism with aplomb. Giving a note to Dominic Tipper

Seriously, we know

We’ve been falling down on the job here on the blog for a while, but we’re working on some stuff that will make Expanse fans very happy.  We promise, next week we’ll have some stuff to talk about.  Thanks for your patience.  Daniel owes you the flaky pastry of your choice next time you see him.   In the meantime, look at this thing an amazing fan set up.   http://expanse.wikia.com/wiki/The_Expanse_Wiki

Abaddon’s Gate Reviews

by Ty Franck

Publishers Weekly has the first big review of Abaddon’s Gate.  Seems like they liked it. Daniel and I keep trying to do something new with each book in the series, and the hope is that this will keep the books from quickly growing stale.  But the fear is that by not doing the same thing you did last time, you can disappoint the fans of the earlier books.  We definitely went a new direction with at least some of what […]

Of course not, no one does. But would you like to get them to sign your book on the off chance that they will be simultaneously killed in a very famous and unique way, thus rendering the signatures valuable?  Given the high likelihood of this happening, you’d be crazy not to!!! Come to Alamosa Books on June 23 where the bitter rivals that make up James S.A. Corey will be speaking, signing, and making cruel jokes about each other’s expanding […]

First Caliban’s War review!

It looks like Publisher’s Weekly liked it. I especially like that they are “itching for the third book.”  I guess that means we did it right. Don’t skip to the end or anything, but I came up with the last line of this book, and I think it’s the coolest thing I ever did.  It’s all downhill after this.

Giving Birth

Depending on your particular process, books start out in a lot of different ways. For some writers they begin as a moment, one particular scene that leaps into their head fully formed. George RR Martin has often said that the entire Ice and Fire saga began with the scene of Ned Stark and his boys finding the dire wolf pups. I know writers who always begin from the end. They have their climactic scene in mind, and they work backwards […]
