Yes, COMING SOON...
This is my blog and I try very hard NOT to brag or post stuff about me BUT today I'm breaking those rules and letting everyone know -- I have a non-fiction author's tip book coming out in just a couple of days!
[insert trumpet fanfare] Coming May 1, 2014. [insert crowd cheers!]
Yes! Non-fiction. It isn't fantasy, science fiction, historical, thriller, adventure, horror, Christian or any other type of genre. It is a book about writing. It is a book about editing. It is a great book and a book well worth the very low price I've set.
