Long Overdue Update

Well, I've been doing a terrible job of updating the blog, haven't I? I'm definitely still blogging, I've just been focusing a lot of my energy on my Psychology Today blog (Psychology for Writers) and the QueryTracker Blog. You can also find me on Facebook and Google+!

If you haven't checked them out, you might be interested in some of my recent Psychology Today posts. You'll notice they're all about characterization—those seem to be the most popular!
Over on the QueryTracker Blog, author/lawyer Leslie Budewitz and I recently exchanged views on the insanity defense. She wrote about historical and modern legal approaches, and I wrote about which psychological disorders your characters would (and would not) need to have to plead insanity.  I also do writing-and-fiction Q&As over on the QTB. Recent questions sought information on dissociative amnesia and brainwashing. (Forensics specialist Kristy Lahoda has also been doing explosives Q&As over on the QTB!)  You might also enjoy:

Archetype Writing Site

I have continued to keep Archetype Writing alive, and today I spent an hour going through the site with a fine-toothed comb to fix some dead and misdirected links.

The Writer's Guide to Psychology

If you haven't yet picked up a copy of The Writer's Guide to Psychology, I'm thrilled to say that the book has received excellent reviews and is selling quite well on (where you can get an autographed copy)! It can be difficult to find in brick-and-mortar bookstores, though if you have a local Powell's Books, they're sometimes in stock there.
