Quick Note: Amazon has reduced the price of my new writing book… by a lot.

Sometimes it doesn’t hurt to ask. When Penguin Random House took over the business and the inventory of Writers Digest Books, they pegged the price of my new writing book — Great Stories Don’t Write Themselves — at $19.99.





I know. That’s a lot for a trade paperback.





In fact it was the most expensive book in the top-100 in the “Authorship Reference” category (the book has bounced in and out of that

“Most of us are one of two things: blind or chicken-shit. We wouldn't know a crossroads in our lives if it had a set of stoplights and a Denny's.”
Larry Brooks, Bait and Switch

“But writers experience the world and themselves in a unique way. We look for meaning. We see it even when we are not paying attention, which is seldom because, as writers, paying attention is what we do. We are scribes to the ticking of the days, and we have a job to do. We are not at peace unless we are doing it.”
Larry Brooks

“If you’ve ever wondered why some writers who, in your humble opinion, don’t write as well as you do yet are rich and famous while you struggle onward, this is the reason. They are great directors.”
Larry Brooks
