Book Description

The one thing every agent and editor looks for is a strong, unique writers voice. In Taking out the Trash, I talk about how to find and polish yours.

Tense Persons (POV part 1) covers the pros and cons of writing in 1st or 3rd person, and past or present tense.

Single Spy to Teeming Horde (POV part 2) tackles the pros and cons of writing with one, few, or many POV characters.

A POV Footnote lists the vast number of beginner mistakes that can be avoided by writing in close 3rd person.

And in Writing the Other, I discuss why writers sometimes fail when writing a character of the opposite gender, and how to create believable characters who are different from you.
