He advertises his book 'Write it forward' more and guides less reagarding writing novels. Kinda deceiving audience by writing this book. I wrote its revised edition. He told some really good tips; but very few!

Besides my own interests, I read whatever my wife tells me to read-- she's a voracious reader and has wide-ranging tastes as my reviews show (she also always has the TV remote and she's always right about what to watch). I read a lot of nonfiction, mostly for research. Some of my favorite books are Lonesome Dove, Mystic River, LOTR, and an array of science fiction classics including the Foundation ...more
