Tell us a little bit about yourself.

Winterviews Start 21 December 2016

So, what is this Winterviews thing, you didn’t ask? Pull up a chair, a cup of coffee, and take a lot of time getting comfortable, because this is likely to be the shortest blog post ever.

Winter + Interviews = Winterviews. <– That’s it.

Their interviews will go up on the blog every Wednesday for the thirteen weeks of winter.

Self-Editing Your Novel

National Novel Writing Month is coming to an end, and that means it’s time to take all those words and add a little magic.

Well, now the real work begins.

It’s also when the real fun starts. Now you get to bring that black and white drawing of a story to life by adding color, depth and composition...
