“Don’t hold back and save stuff for the next book. Put everything you have into the one you’re writing, - Michael Connelly”

“Be daring. Better to fail spectacularly then stay safe and achieve meh. -- Anonymous”
Sue Ward Drake, Hear No Evil

“Writing a full length novel is very much like driving a car with snakes in your pants—you just never know what’s going to happen. -- James Scott Bell”
