Rewriting the Paranormal Rules – a Message from Wonder Author Erik Clarke

As a fan of paranormal shows and stories, I’ve been all but raised on the mythos of supernatural creatures. Vampires fry in the sun, werewolves can’t survive silver, and all the others. I’d never really planned on writing...

Sibel Edmonds Sibel Edmonds's blog:
I’m a sucker for Tom Clancy and Robert Ludlum type spy novels. Sibel Edmonds’ The Lone Gladio is a great read. It’s one of the best action, thriller, spy novels I’ve ever read. It’s such a page-turner that I stayed up way too late reading … and ignored my work. I had to find out what happened to... Read more of this blog post »

The toast is burnt
The coffee spilled
The car broke down

Ain't been to bed

Lord there must be some better way
To start the day
Than getting up!

A novel in a month?

You can totally do that.

But here are my caveats: My opinion is not universal. There are many paths to writing and publication. Every writer has a different process, and often, every book has its own process. You don't have to follow these steps to find success.

That being said...
