Another year has come and gone. At least I am still breathing, that is one good thing.


Writing this year has been pretty slim, hopefully, I can make more time to really get down to re-writing the novels into third person.


Of course, I just read a great book the Crime Writer. You should check it out.  What I found interesting was that it is written in first person.


Now, I was told by this literary agent that first person was a no-no and that it will not sell.


It seems that Gregg Hurwitz was never told this by his agent, or his publishers. Yes, that is right; more than one publisher has published his first person novels.


I hope that each of you have great year in 2011!  I also hope that you find or do whatever it is that you want to accomplish this year.


Take care and enjoy the start of the New Year!


Until next time,

Shame on me I forgot to mention that I was a winner in the Filbert Publishing June 2010 Short Story Contest! How could I forget such an honor as my first winning place in a contest. Even though it was a second place finish, I want to say, Thanks Filbert Publishing. I was also nominated and received a Peevbody Award for Outstanding Support of Writers! Not all was bad in 2010.
