Author Spotlight: Jim Butcher

Jim Butcher is the author of the Dresden Files and the Codex Alera series. I could extoll his virtues but you’re better off visiting his website at It’s a good place to visit whether your a fan, a fellow author or like me, both. You’ll learn more about him and what he’s up to.

He has a LiveJournal Blog that hasn’t been updated in some time but there is a lot of entertaining and insightful stuff there. I learned a lot, reading some of his posts. The posts about Scenes and Sequels were very helpful. Ocassionally I go back to the blog and search through the posts when I need a little help.

On a more personal note, I met him at a convention. At the time, I didn’t know who he was. I remember saying something stupid. Despite that, he took time from his busy schedule to give me some advice that made a lot of sense. I came away from the encounter with the feeling that I could do this and a smaller more manageable ego.
