Christmas is just around the corner, and I’ve been rushing around trying to accomplish all kinds of things before it gets here. Christmas shopping is high on the list, of course, but taking precedence over that is…BOOKS! Of course. Not just Biloxi Blueeither.

Jaden Terrell's workbook, Question Me a Novel a Workbook for Crime Fiction Writers, walks authors of all stages through the creation and writing of mystery, suspense, and thriller novels.

I partnered up with a writer/editor that I respect tremendously, and I have had the great pleasure of helping her to publish a workbook for writers. Remember back in September when I wrote about growth and developmental editors? Well, there you have it. Beth (Jaden) Terrell has given me the distinct pleasure of publishing her newest book, Question Me a Novel: A Workbook for Crime Fiction Writers. Kudos to Michael R. Hicks for the beautiful cover!

The book releases in print and Kindle formats December 15th. The Amazon.com pre-order for the Kindle edition will be live soon. I’ll announce all the details here as soon as I have them.

Until then, friends, Happy Holidays! Have fun shopping, but be sure to take a break from the holiday madness to remember the things that make you uniquely average. Enjoy your friends and family, and drink fully from life.  We’ll get back to regularly scheduled (and somewhat serious) stuff in January. Cheers!
