I appreciate my readers. I love my readers. I’m grateful for my readers. Without them, I could not be a writer. The reason I write—what drives me to produce stories in written form—is the desire to do for others what some authors have done for me. I want to provide a thoroughly satisfying reading experience, shot through with mystery and delicious suspense.
So I think about my readers a lot, trying to see things from their point of view. Today, I want to give my readers a peek at the writer’s perspective. And to start, I’d like to share an article, 37+ Quotes About How To Become a Writer, packed with inspiring and thought-provoking nuggets, including one shared by me and linked to my latest book, Steadman’s Blind. I hope you’ll take a moment to visit the article and get a glimpse from my viewpoint.
For the writer in you
If you are a writer, or want to become one, the article will have added significance for you. It was written and published by Joe Bunting, author of Crowdsourcing Paris, who founded a top site for writers called The Write Practice. The site hosts many programs to help writers progress and get support for their work.
I’ve been a member of The Write Practice Pro since 2017, and I’ve used it to help me write 12 books and countless short stories. I workshopped chapters of Steadman’s Blind in this community before I published it, and it’s much better for the feedback I received.
I mention this to you now because The Write Practice Pro is offering a couple of great bonuses, including a free live course, when you join this week. You can check out the community and the bonuses here.

One last bit of news

I had a lot of fun bringing these characters together and I hope you’ll have a lot of fun reading about how they combine their unique skill sets to solve a murder and bring to light a heinous deception.
