The 30 Day Novel: Plot
Outlining. You know all the bestselling writers do, you know you should, but it sounds SO damned boring. Never fear. Once you understand HOW to structure your outline, you get control over the most important tool you'll ever have.
The 30 Day Novel Trilogy
Plot, Back Story, First Pages
BAM! Kick it up to the next level of professionalism by sharpening your skills and techniques in these three subjects.
Within the first pages -- the first few paragraphs -- you've got to hook the reader, get the reader to suspend disbelief, and make the reader believe your world. Agent, editor, consumer -- it doesn't matter. Fumble any one of those three elements and you've lost them forever.
The Last Casualty
When a priest hears the dying confession of a spy that a mission in progress is compromised, he must choose between his vows and his promises.
