Writing News

I don't have time for much blogging today, but here's a few writing-related news tidbits.

Some of you already know that Romance writer Nora Roberts also writes as J.D. Robb. Well, apparently, she's not the only famous writer who goes slumming under other pen names. Famed horror writer Stephen King just revealed that he is actually the author behind the pen name Stephanie Meyer. That's right. The whole bro-ha-ha where Stephen King supposedly dissed the writing quality of Twilight was just an elaborate inside joke.

Boarders has been in trouble for quite some time, but the mega-book store chain has a new lease on life now that they've been acquired by Publish America.

Finally, J.K. Rowlings, who had earlier shocked fans by outting Dumbledore as gay, delivered another surprise today when she explained that after attending several reparative therapy sessions, the wizard had successfully reversed his homosexuality. She did not say whether magic was involved in the therapy, or whether the same spells would work on Muggles.

I've been laughing about SK/SM all morning, and telling other people about it. That's priceless. I wish it was true.
