Which Living Writer Would You Like To Write A Review Of Your Book?

Standard

I have been continuing to think about hypothetical writing questions. I have asked which writer you would like to write an introduction to your book, so I began thinking about who you might like to read and review your work. I do not mean that it would happen, because I doubt that I could get a review from my choice. I still think, though, it is an interesting question.

For my books Maledicus: The Investigative Paranormal Society, Book I and Gallows Hill: The Investigative Paranormal Society, Book 2 , if it were possible, I would ask, and I would be honored if he agreed, Stephen King to review them.  Not only is King the Master of Horror, but also he is one of our greatest living writers. No matter what he might say about my books, I would love to know what he thinks of them.

So, I ask all of you: what living writer would you like to review one or more of your books?

We are well into the month of May, and I thought it was time again for a book promotion party!

I want to offer an opportunity for all writers who follow this blog to share information on their books. It can be very difficult to generate publicity for our writing, so I thought this little effort might help. All books may be mentioned, and there is no restriction on genre. This encompasses fiction, poetry, plays, and non-fiction. If I have neglected to mention a genre, please consider it to be included.

To participate, simply give your name, your book, information about it, and where to purchase it in the comments section. Then please be willing to reblog and/or tweet this post. The more people that see it, the more publicity we can generate for everyone’s books.

Thank you for participating!

Keep on writing!

What is Your Work In Progress?

Standard

I am currently working on several projects: a first draft of a political thriller (about 1/2 finished), a third draft of a fantasy novel, and a  cookbook from meals by the characters in my series Maledicus: The Investigative Paranormal Society, Book 1 and Gallows Hill: The Investigative Paranormal Society, Book 2 by Charles F. French. This is a small, enjoyable book that I am creating for the sheer fun of it.

So, now I ask all the writers out there:

What is your Work In Progress?

 

Read Every day and Write Every day!

This advice is certainly not original to me; many writers have made this suggestion before. I want, however, to emphasize its importance to all authors:

Write every day, and read every day.

“Painting is poetry that is seen rather than felt, and poetry is painting that is felt rather than seen.”

“A poem begins as a lump in the throat, a sense of wrong, a homesickness, a lovesickness.”

“With me poetry has not been a purpose, but a passion.”

Writers–Keep Writing!

Standard

Writers, keep writing!

Please remember that writing is not inspired from some external source, and it does not come in one burst of activity.

While talent matters, what is far more important is the ability to be disciplined and to work every day, to put pen to paper, or sit in front of the keyboard and to create even when things are not going well.

Hard work, discipline, and commitment are the most important qualities that are needed for creating a written work.

Try to write every day, even if your goal is only a couple of hundred words.

Keep writing!

You can do this!
