Overview

Jay Lake's Process of Writing is five years of personal blog posts, from 2005 to 2010, marking Jay Lake's rise in the world of genre publishing from a random newbie to a reasonably well known writer.

This is an accidental book. Jay didn't set out to write a book about the process of writing. What he did was write a blog about a lot of things. One of them was writing, in all "its manifold forms and configurations." Jay touches on everything from practical craft issues to his publishing experiences to reviews, workshops, and all the rest of the impedimenta of the author's world. This is his experience, opinions, and thought processes on how he became the writer he is.

"Keep a notebook handy. You're going to learn. And more importantly, some of Jay is going to rub off on you and you're going to write like the wind." -Ken Scholes, Author of the Psalms of Isaak series

Meet the Author

Jay Lake has been described as one of the rising stars of the science fiction and fantasy genre. Since first appearing on the scene in late 2001, he has seen over 300 short stories published, along with nine novels out, and more forthcoming. His work has received starred reviews in Publishers Weekly and Booklist, and significant recognition within the science fiction and fantasy field. He has won two of the most prestigious awards in science fiction and been nominated for numerous others.


Lake was born and raised overseas as the son of a United States diplomat. His childhood experiences in Asia, African and Europe have given him a wealth of cultural and geographical detail to draw from when creating exotic settings and strange situations. He has, after all, lived them. His professional career has been in advertising and marketing for the high technology field, which gives Lake a lifetime of exposure to technology issues and trends. Taken together, these go a long way to explaining his choice of writing fields.


Today Jay Lake lives in Portland, Oregon, where he works on multiple writing and editing projects. His 2012/2013 books include Kalimpura from Tor and Love in the Time of Metal and Flesh from Prime. His short fiction appears regularly in literary and genre markets worldwide. Jay is a winner of the John W. Campbell Award for Best New Writer, and a multiple nominee for the Hugo and World Fantasy Awards. Jay can be reached through his Web site at www.jlake.com.
