Hi Tom

No one single peice of advice has been offered to me, and that's the problem for any new writer.

My publisher offers a constant flow of support and encouragement, and I find that very supportive.

I suppose I have to go back to the reviews my short stories received on the now defunct Storiesville writing site. They were all very positive, and provided me with the springboard to make the transition to writing full-length novels.

If someone were to ask me for that advice, I would tell them to write to suit themselves and never lose belief.(less)
Neal James I change the format from novel to short story, or simply write in a different genre.
