It’s only been the last decade or so that I have made writing a constant part of my life. Knowing how good it is for me, I wish I had started sooner.
Notes on writing.
I’ve written about fear before. It can be a huge road block. As I get closer to releasing my first novel, I feel that familiar feeling creeping back.
Would you like to write a novel with James Patterson? It may be a once in a lifetime experience. If that appeals to you, read on.
How does one craft a good, compelling story? Every author will say something different, but I’d wager there would be more similarity than difference. Here’s George Saunders’s take on it.
When I release my first book, Tied, later this month, it will be available as an ebook as well as a paperback. I plan on documenting the process and typesetting is step one (after writing and editing, that is).
When I chose to self-publish my books, I knew I’d get to the point where I’d need to decide on a price. And the decision is damn tough.

Last Thursday’s post was about registering copyright, which I feel is a must for every published work. Is there any other forms of protection?
It’s a common fear among beginning writers that our work will be stolen if we place it online. So are there any safeguards I can take to protect myself?
I recently wrote about writing what you know, but the stories I want tell often lead me down unfamiliar paths.
