Another Paladin’s Way Freebie on AMAZON !

Okay, Here goes another freebie promo.  I’m giving away Episode 1 of Soulstone for free from the 20th thru the 22nd of January.  That’s Saturday, Sunday and Monday.  It’s a short so it won’t take long to read.  Hope Y’all enjoy.  I’ll be doing more promoting this year and I plan to release the third book in the series in the September 2018 time-frame.  If you like adventure stories, I think you’ll like the upcoming book in the Paladin’s Way series.  In the meantime go grab the free episode from Amazon.  They’ll be back to $.99 on Tuesday.

By the way, I didn’t do a new years post so I just wanted to wish you a happy new year.  If you are writing the next great American novel,  I hope you take time to enjoy the gifts you have in your life.   If you’re stuck, I hope it all breaks free for you and flows right onto the dang page.

Have a wonderful week.

 

Peace,

Lee

 

 

 

 

Making Trouble

I have to say one thing about scene creation I’ve seen over and over as I search for lessons on craft.  If you want to write a novel you have to make trouble for your main character.

You know, put him up a tree and throw rocks at him.  Two dogs and one bone.  You get the general picture.

It’s what novelists DO.

Period.

I found a Jewel by a master that explains the concept in a way that lets you get your head around it.  I just can’t say enough to recommend this to anyone wishing to understand an essential aspect of story-craft.

One more time.  I say again.  Essential Aspect.

But you know what?  With a little practice it can become a part of what you do naturally.
