Two Big Things Happened Today

Hello, friends!

I have two exciting announcements.

My second how-two book for writers was published today! Cue the confetti cannons and balloon drop! I am so excited to share this book with you.

No Hero Wants to Save the World is both in-depth and accessible. I wanted to give you a clear understanding of story stakes and give you action steps so you could start working on your own manuscript right away.

No Hero Wants to Save the World is a compact-yet-meaty book that takes a fresh look at story stakes and cuts through all the myths that have been holding writers back. I guarantee that when you finish this book you will never look at story stakes the same way again!

Are we celebrating today? You bet we’re celebrating!

My second announcement is that The Big-Picture Revision Checklist is on sale today. To celebrate the publication of No Hero Wants to Save the World, my first book is having a little flash sale. For two days only, the ebook of The Big-Picture Revision Checklist is on sale for $1.99.

If you missed The Big-Picture Revision Checklist when it first came out, now’s your chance to get the ebook for less than half price! This sale won’t last long, so if you want a copy at this amazing price, you’ll have to act fast.

And if you’ve read either of my how-to books, if they’ve helped you in any way, I’d love a review on your favorite bookselling site. Reviews help other readers find me and help raise my profile so I can keep writing books.

I’ll be back in February for my regular book review, along with my annual Valentine’s Day giveaway. In the meantime, happy reading, and happy writing!

Bonus blog: Editing Services

Hello friends,

Here’s something you might not know about me: I’m a professional editor with over a decade of experience editing for small presses and private clients.

I have not advertised this fact until now because I didn’t need to. In the before-times, my clients found me via word of mouth, and my inbox was always full. However, the entire economy slowed down last year, and I slowed down along with it.

But that’s good news for you! I have openings now, so if you’ve been looking for a freelance editor for your novel or memoir, I might be a good fit for you. If you’re a regular reader of this blog, you know that I am passionate about helping writers. That passion extends to my editing work, as I strive to help writers bring better books into the world.

You can find out more information at my other site:

I’ll be back on the 1st with my regular book review. Until then, happy writing!
