    How To Create A Character From The Comments

    But, would our characters be relatable?

    Two Short Stories Are Live - Amazon And Smashwords

    Thank you. Now I enter into a new territory, marketing. We'll see how that goes.

    FYI - My story I created to benefit Compassion is now live on Amazon and Smashwords. While it didn't quite go as I had planned, at least it is alive and kicking! I was not able to have royalties from either distributor go directly to Compassion, but I will have full disclosure to anyone who asks about the money going to Compassion on a monthly/quarterly basis (depending on how often I actually have something to send to them). Here's the Amazon link: Yanka and the Dragons https://www.amazon.com/Yanka-Dragons-Knights-Tiqvah-Story-ebook/dp/B074ZR4FBN/ref=pd_rhf_gw_p_img_1?_encoding=UTF8&psc=1&refRID=0QWRRDQXK91XPTFEMT03
  5. I am proud to say that I have two of my short stories published and live on Amazon and Smashwords. One is a Middle Grade Fantasy, the other a Supernatural Thriller geared toward adults (it does contain some language not suitable for children). For a limited time, if you sign up on my email list, you can get one (or both) for free.

    How To Improve Your Query Letter

    Good to know. Definitely different from what I've read before, but makes more sense, too. Thanks for sharing, as always.

    List Of Editors/add Your Name

    If you are still taking links to editors and author services, I'll add mine (a fairly new venture for me, professionally not in experience) : site: https://russelljfellows.com/author-services Editing fees are listed on the site. Book Reviews are, of course, free.

    Well...this didn't quite pan out the way I wanted it to, but that's all right. While I did have some great submissions, things did not work out to make things work in the time frame I had put in place. Never fear, though, I'll have something put together that will benefit Compassion, as soon as I can. Stay tuned.

    How Tolkien Showed Us Ourselves in LOTR

    I can see that - I think I've become too used to the plodding style (been accused of it from time to time myself). Kind of like Brandon Sanderson - great world building and such, but a bit long winded on small things like cleaning a sand pit...still not sure what the point of that was...

    How Tolkien Showed Us Ourselves in LOTR

    It's funny how I hear from time to time that Tolkien wouldn't make it as a writer today (because he doesn't do this or he doesn't do that)...and yet when we actually look at his work, we constantly see how brilliant of a storyteller he was.

    Lynn, There is no set length. If you have a great story, it doesn't matter how long it is. I would love to take a look if you have something.

    Hi Peggy, I don't have a specific length in mind. I would love stories between 7K to 10K, but have had some submit around 1K. The quality of the story is what counts. I'll accept anything up to Novella length if it's a great story. Hope that helps.

    Fundraiser For Compassion International

    Hey everyone, I know I'm sporadic at best when it comes to showing up here at CW, but just wanted to plug this again. The idea is to put together a book and have all the proceeds go directly to Compassion International. I've talked it over with Compassion's fundraising arm (ACT for Compassion) and with CreateSpace and things are good to go. Now all I need are great stories to put into the book. So, do any of you have a story of hope lying around waiting for its day to shine? The theme of the book is about hope. The stories do not have to be related to Compassion International or sponsoring children. Just stories of hope that would be suitable for ages 9 - 13 years old, but with the ability to make just about anyone want to read them (adults, and even parents reading them to their kids). You can read more in the link I shared above. All submissions are to be Word docs (or .rtf; .txt, etc.) - normal submission rules (Times New Roman, 12 pt, double spaced, etc.) - and sent to thecompassionbookproject*at*gmail*dot*com. Hope to hear from you soon!
