Get yourself a free creative writing eBook

Happy Wednesday all!

We’re half way through the week and bearing down on the weekend like a cheetah on a gazelle. 

One of the things I love to do most in the world is helping you good people out in any way I can. Kindness can be a rare thing nowadays and it’s always good to spread it around whenever possible. This is the philosophy behind The Writer’s Tool Shed, and with the posts mounting up I’ve decided to compile those so far published into an eBook—This Craft We Call Writing: Volume One. Over 150 pages of tips, hints, and guides on everything from dialogue, plotting, viewpoint and prose, to world-building, writing fight scenes, and editing, complete with pictures! And it’s totally free when you sign up to my mailing list!

To sweeten things some more, I’ll throw in one of my flash fiction stories called Ducks, recently published by Writing on the Wall.

“When little Inia goes chasing ducks things take a sour turn.”

You can sign up here!

Thank you as always for reading.
