Good stuff, y'all.

Chris Jackson (chrisajackson) | 3 comments Here is a very cool book by Robin D. Laws. Originally for RPG gamers in constructing stories to entertain players, but is becoming a "how to" for plotting and pacing of almost any fiction.

I think the article was more interested in getting authors into the right head space concerning choosing genres as opposed to being a primer on the subject. But no doubt, it's helpful in getting the ball rolling.

When Angels Fall by Stephanie Jackson
Danielle Coulter had never believed in anything except her mother, hard work and heartache. She never had time for religious fairytales. But when her mother died, Dani was forced to believe…or die.
Not only was she forced to accept that God and Lucifer are real, but also that she is the last living descent of God on Earth. An undeniable fact when the Archangel Gabriel fell to Earth to protect her.
Archangel Gabriel; banished from Heaven over four million years ago for refusing to kill his brother, Lucifer, was about to get a second chance to re-enter Heaven. He was sent to Earth on a mission from his Father to protect the last Daughter of God; the last woman to carry the Blood of God on Earth, and kill his brother, once and for all.
Gabriel had never expected to feel anything for Dani, but he soon found himself willing to fight Heaven and Hell to keep her safe, even if it meant his own destruction.

Stephanie, would this go better under Fantasy, or Christian?

Karl Vadaszffy | 6 comments A great new website by bestselling author Mark Edwards (Catch Your Death) on how indie authors can improve their chances of writing and selling a successful book.

As part of it, he's interviewed me to discuss my Kindle top 10 bestseller The Missing. Links here:

Richard Sutton (richardsutton) | 25 comments The results from the Digital Book World Conference are important to all Indie Authors. Bob Mayer discusses the issue of discoverability (new word, I guess, coined recently) and how to improve your chances:

Richard Sutton (richardsutton) | 25 comments I've been prowling the writers' sites on the web since 1995 or so, and have found a lot of really good ones. I would say, however, that only one has been consistently helpful, welcoming and as useful as a handful of writing courses. I can wholeheartedly recommend Litopia , which is also the oldest writers' site online. It is all about a collegial immersion into finding the key to honing your craft and making your stories shine!Spend some time and get to know the personality of the place. This is not the place to spam the forums with self-promotion as it's pretty old-school when it comes to Indie Authors. If you want to learn to make your writing better, it's the place to do it.
