I write about all kinds of things—myth, magic, murder, the publishing world. Occasionally about abuse or depression. I haven’t yet written much about absolutely the most important thing in our world—our daughter and her transformation. It’s hardest to write about the things closest to you. For me, at least. But the many conversations I’ve hadContinue reading “Our Journey*”

New release – THE COUNTDOWN CLUB!
The blog’s been on hiatus while I’ve been frantically trying to get everything done by the end of the year. However, my latest novel has just been released, and I can’t keep quiet about it! THE COUNTDOWN CLUB is a young adult suspense novel close to my heart, just out from Bella Rosa Books. I hopeContinue reading “New release – THE COUNTDOWN CLUB!”
It’s to be expected, I suppose, that the busier I get, the less time I have to devote to telling you all about things! I’m still active on Twitter, and hope you’ll follow me there (@LucienneDiver). Agent-me can still be found at http://www.knightagency.net, and Author-me will continue on at http://www.luciennediver.com/, but it seems that newContinue reading “Blog Hiatus”

The Trademark Issue
So, there seems to be an exciting new trend in publishing (not) where people are trademarking or attempting to trademark perfectly common words already in widespread usage throughout the industry in titles, series, imprints, etc. A friend on Twitter recently asked for my thoughts, and since I have yet to figure out how to doContinue reading “The Trademark Issue”

THE NIGHT DAHLIA
Still here! I’ve just been crazy busy between deals and contracts and the London Book Fair and travel to Paris afterward. I hope to have some pics and maybe a write-up of the trip up on the blog some time next week, but I didn’t want to wait to post a belated Happy Book BirthdayContinue reading “THE NIGHT DAHLIA”

Last week was filled with amazing events, including a school visit to Challenger Middle School, the Cape Literacy Festival, and a talk at the W.T. Bland Library with my Tips from a Literary Agent. As promised at that talk, here’s thatContinue reading “Links”
