Latest articles in Writing Magazine

Give Your Book a Chance

My latest 'Beginners' item in June's Writing Magazine is about having the confidence to submit your work, whether a book or short story, to have it judged by the commercial market. Many writers don't, and as a consequence, never discover how far they can go with their writing.

I know how tough it can be from my own early experiences; you feel you're going to be ridiculed by some unseen editor or agent. But that's the thing to remember: they don't know you, you don't know them.

So what's to lose? Get it out there and see what comes back.

Who knows? You could have a winner sitting on your PC waiting to be found.

My New Author profile in this issue is James Hilton, whose debut thriller is 'Search and Destroy', published by Titan Books. And you've guessed it from the title - it ain't chick lit.
The good news is, if you like reading series novels with repeating characters, this is one and it sounds like it's going to be a long-runner. Jim has signed a three-book deal, so get reading!
