David Wind Just wanted all to know we (our writers group made up of 6 multi-published authors) have just released a new book called The Lifeboat. The book is designed for Writers and those who want to write. It is NOT a how to write, but a How We Write book designed to let writers know a little more about the various processes we writers go through. We call our group a lifeboat group because it is our way of surviving a writer's life. It's available on Amazon for 99 cents. You can learn more about it at Amazon: http://goo.gl/DPBJP3 or at the gottareadthat.com website at : http://goo.gl/Eqq60l
