comment How can a specific (current) event be made timeless?
Excellent point, many popular SF and Fantasy stories make analogies for sensitive topical issues. The stand out in my mind at present being Dune where a resource that enables the speedy transit of a vast interstellar community is monopolised by a single barren desert world... the Spice Melange may not be a direct parallel of oil but it was similar enough to engage a number of people.

comment Publishing and selling ebooks
@jae: That's a good point. I was surprised to find how frighteningly effective a mailing list is also. All this social media marketing and whatnot is way overrated but just having people sign up to an e-mail newsletter apparently can get some good results.

comment What should I do to promote my books?
See, now I know what kinds of books you write. Awesome. It had never crossed my mind that this sub genre of romance existed and as a writer I am fascinated to see how such a subject is handled so I may buy one just to see how one would write a romance like that. My wife may buy them all but sometimes I can't tell what she wants to read and what she doesn't.

+1 for correcting the erroneous conflation of "epistolary" and "diary form".

comment Good books on writing for comics?
This is one of my favourite books... He also wrote Reinventing Comics and a new one (well 2006 but I'd not heard of it) called Making Comics.
