How To Drive On The Left With No Sleep (Scotland Trip #3)

Arguing about which side of the road is "right" is a perenniel joke between the US and UK, but it's a joke that can turn tricky - or even deadly - when you get behind the wheel of your first Scottish rental car. Especially when you've been up for about 27 hours continuously. (Yes, I got plenty of shut-eye on the plane... the kind where you shut your eyes but don't sleep. It was still daylight in my head.)

Turbulence Can Be Fun (Scotland Trip #2)

Yes, I am that blogger. You know the one. He starts a series, promises the next installment "next week," then lets the subject sit untouched for two months. On the time-honored theory that late is better than never, here's the long-delayed Scotland Trip Part 2.

Our recent trip to Scotland involved my first flight (unless you count the one on a sled that ended up in a fence, which…

The Silent Blade: An Interview With Jesseca Wheaton

Today we'll be talking to my Goodreads friend Jesseca Wheaton, as part of the blog tour for her new novel, The Silent Blade. (Isn't that a great tour banner she put together?)

"There Are No Escape Pods, Captain" - Jordan Smith On NaNo, Loglines, And Life

If you recognized the title of this post, then you probably know Jordan Smith - whether you realize it or not. He's one of the people behind Month of the Novel, and also author of the popular writing books Finding The Core of Your Story and, recently, Loglines in the Wild. After reviewing the latter as part of Jordan's launch team, I invited him for an interview and he accepted.

I Will Lift Up My Eyes... To The Election?

For the first time since I've been old enough to vote - in fact, for the first time in my memory - I have no plausible outcome to hope for in the presidential election. And while that's not without an upside (I can relax this summer while die-hard politicos bite their nails), it's also kind of depressing.

Pack Light (Scotland Trip #1)

As some readers may be aware, I recently returned from my first overseas trip, a one-week visit to Scotland with my mom. This was also my first time flying. I learned a lot about travel in those few short days, and thought I would share some of my newbie experiences here - for my own future reference as well as for the entertainment of the extremely bored. Don't expect touristy stuff, though, because we did almost none of that on what was mostly a personal visiting trip. Don't expect lots of pictures either, for the same reason.

Don't Let The Rat Read This: An Interview With Lydia Howe

Today we're going to have a few questions with my friend Lydia Howe, author of Action Kid's Club plus Cave Secrets of the Pterodactyl and Cool Critters of the Ice Age (with her "adopted dad" Buddy Davis). She's also in the midst of rewriting and editing When Life Hands You Lymes, a fictional story based on her multi-year battle with Lyme disease. This is going to be a major work of some length, but Lydia has been kind enough to take time out for an interview in the midst. So let's get to it!

Help, Hope, And Apathy: An Interview With Missionary Author Natalie Vellacott

Today we have the pleasure of hosting Natalie Vellacott, missionary to the Philippines and author of the book They're Rugby Boys, Don't You Know? After reading and reviewing the book, I asked Natalie if she would give us an interview here on Elisha Press, and she was nice enough to agree. So here we go!

"What Would You Name Your Violin?" - An Interview With Amanda Tero

My writer friend Amanda Tero has recently released the first novella in her new Orphan Journeys series, called Journey to Love. It's a sweet story, and I recommend it especially to the young ladies in the audience. (Relevant links to follow after the jump.) As part of Amanda's launch tour for the book, she consented to be interviewed here on Elisha Press. We did this a couple of months ago, so don't get confused by the references to cold weather.
