More About the Author

About John Scherber

John Scherber, a Minnesota native, settled in Mexico in 2007. He is the author of twelve Paul Zacher mysteries (The Murder in Mexico series), set in the old colonial hill town of San Miguel de Allende, named as a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 2008. In addition, two volumes of the Townshend Vampire Trilogy have appeared, as well as his award-winning nonfiction account of the expatriate experience, San Miguel de Allende: A Place in the Heart. His new book, Into the Heart of Mexico: Expatriates Find Themselves Off the Beaten Path, tells the story of Americans and Canadians who have chosen to live in Mexico away from large English-speaking support groups.
His fiction is known for its fast pace, irreverent humor, and light-hearted excursions into the worlds of art and antiques--always with an edge of suspense. Neither highbrow nor lowbrow, his books are written as entertainments, and dedicated to the fun of reading. While he has acknowledged being no single one of his characters, he also admits to being all of them.

Format: Paperback
I am nearing completion of my manuscript and was wondering just how to go about publishing it. After reading the many opinions of writers, editors, and publishers on the Internet, I felt like I was treading water in an angry sea holding my book above the waves when I ran across this book.....it was my lifesaver!

Extremely well written and easy to understand, John Scherber gives a straight forward look into the world of publishing using the latest technology at hand and what to expect. I feel much more confident about publishing my book now that I have this one to refer to when I need help.

In this book, the last three words at the end of the last chapter....."Go for it!"

...to refresh skills or kick-start your novel writing. John Scherber simplifies complex writer tasks and makes them easily understandable, doable, and controllable. As an author of several novels, I recommend this book for writers, beginning and advanced, of all fiction... and non-fiction, too. Definitely add this one to your reference shelf.

Format: Paperback
What John Scherber shares here is invaluable. As a writer who learned the ropes early on, got tangled in them, left for a few decades and come back, his insights are of tremendous use to any aspiring writer. Scherber's as much a reader as a writer: his take on the basic elements of good storytelling is clear-eyed and practical, and his emphasis on craft--building characters, making dialogue crackle, ending a chapter to leave the reader wanting more--can guide anyone out of writer's block. What's more, his chapters on pricing, self-publishing, and Internet marketing look the future of publishing squarely in the eye and says "bring it on." John Scherber's A Writer's Notebook is the perfect supplement (and often a corrective) to a traditional, "formal" education in Creative Writing. I highly recommend it.
