Great News for Writers!

Great News for writers!

I'm really excited to tell you about a project I’ve been working on with a few other bestselling and award-winning authors. The ten of us are putting together a guide to assist you on your journey to become a bestselling and award-winning author yourself. And for those of you who are already authors, it will help you take your writing skills to the next level. There’s something for everyone! I know I’m already learning a lot from these wonderful authors.

Here's the cover >>>>>>>>>>>

(Have you ever felt like that guy? I know I have!)

Why another book on writing? What makes this one special?

This awesome book will not just give you ONE perspective on the writing world. It will give you several. Each of us has chosen the topics on which we excel. This way, you hear from the experts on that particular skill. Additionally, some topics (i.e., plotting, publishing, and marketing) will be discussed from several points of view. That way you can choose the ideas and styles that are best for you.

Unique, huh?!

This book is due out by early Fall 2018. I’ll let you know the date once it’s set.

(UPDATE: Writing from the Trenches is available NOW. Here's the link.)
