Chris Andrews embarked on his writing career while under the blissful ignorance of youth, when he thought writing a successful book was as simple as reading one.

His first novel, Divine Prey, was accepted by an agent and publisher, but true to Murphy's Law the publisher folded and the agent left the business.

Chris has since learned a lot about self-publishing.

His novels have been shortlisted in both the QWC/Hachette and Varuna/HarperCollins Manuscript Development Programs.

For instance, stress may be an inhibitor, but that's very different to a lack of inspiration or a lack of confidence, all of which will require different strategies to work through.

I like to keep a range of projects at various stages of development, so if something not working for me like writing a first draft, I can switch to editing an entirely different story.(less)
Chris Andrews Buffy and Angel. Why? Because they're made for each other, but their very natures sets them apart and into conflict.

Take advantage of your short stories

For a long time I struggled to see the value of writing short stories. While they’re fun to write, help provide ‘instant’ gratification, and have a chance of providing ‘street cred’ among the writing community, they’re probably not going to do much for your finances or writing career unless you’re winning competitions and in a ...
