Okay, so it’s not that big of a deal. But allow me to introduce my new blog, Ronin Writer. Check it out and let me know what you think; I’d love to get some feedback.
So what does the “ronin” thing mean? Ronin is a Japanese word that means masterless samurai. They were independent warriors, either cast adrift on the waves of the world by their lords or by the cruel hand of fate. They were outcasts, but powerful outcasts, because they were still warriors, and thus, dangerous. You won’t find many real weapons around these parts, except for words, although I do love me a well-made katana…
I’ve been working on this project for the last week or so, and the change is two-fold.
1. Super-cool new design, yes? The next minor improvement will be thumbnails of my book trailers in the sidebar.
2. A slight shift in focus from when I launched Blogging the Muse way back in 2006. Back then it was about movies and writing, and then it evolved into the writing life as I launched the Author Interview Series, wherein I interviewed over sixty authors, all at wildly different stages of their career, from first-time novelists to old-time pros like Ramsey Cambpell, Jack Ketchum, and Joe R. Lansdale. All of those interviews are still here, and one of the improvements I am considering is making them more easily accessible without having to use the Search feature.
