From the time he was a boy, he knew he was something special; different. When he committed his first crime and got away with it, he became something else.

Jay had been called many names, The Marcavillian Hunter, Sunshine State Killer, Eastside Rapist, but for him, he was always the shadow in the night...the figure just out of normal perception. A ghost, someone not seen until he wanted to be.

Learn from inside the mind of one of the greatest criminal minds of the 21st Century and how until only recently, he managed to escape detection for over forty years.

You can't protect yourself from what you can't see.

Excerpt:

After spending a good twenty minutes experimenting with the female underwear, the curious long-haired boy took the plastic Ziploc bag from his sandwich and turned it inside out. Carefully folding the panties into a small neat cube, he placed them inside. The zip wouldn’t seal, but the boy rolled up the edges firmly.

After looking for a place to hide them, he lifted a plank and placed the panties in their weather-tight casing underneath and returned the board to its original position. He then kicked some loose hay over the area to further conceal it.

Job done now, he smoked three more cigarettes. The radio played softly in the background. A weepy voice sang about lost love over a slow, strumming guitar. Not his style, but he was too submerged in thought to get up and change the station.

By now, Jay had a small black and white notebook on his lap and held a yellow number two pencil between his fingers. Leaning at the edge of the crate, back hunched, head forward, eyes staring but seeing nothing.

Think, mother-fucker, think.

Suddenly it came to him. The pencil began to scribble wildly, sketching out some crude squares with triangles attached to the tops.

At forty-five, striking Carol Blake has it all: a Chicago corporation she built from the ground up on the verge of international success with a complicated merger, and Brian Cross, who at thirty is the youngest Board member of her company. Against her better judgement she and Brian fall in love and secretly marry.

Marriage is not without your ups and downs, but as the merger grows closer to fruition, Carol’s Board of Directors, including Brian, undercut her to wrest control of her company from her. Betrayed and enraged, Carol must regain control.

...but is it too late?

Excerpt:

The limousine pulled into the hotel driveway and up to the front door. Brian and Carol were halfway across the lobby to the bank of elevators, when he stopped short and gently pulled her around to face him.
“I have to do this now, before we go upstairs,” Brian said, his expression somber. He reached into his inside jacket pocket to retrieve something, and he dropped to one knee on the marble floor. Carol gasped and stumbled back half a step, but Brian caught her hand and pulled her to him, then released her hand to open the small black velvet box, revealing a flawless canary yellow three-carat pear cut diamond flanked by two one-carat rectangular bright whites in an antique gold filigree setting.
“I love you, angel,” he said earnestly, “more than I ever thought possible. Marry me, Carol, marry me tonight.”
Carol stared in stunned silence. She was aware that they were attracting attention from hotel and other guests in the lobby.

She tried to speak but couldn’t make a sound.
An elegant silver-haired woman stepped up. “I think he’s quite serious, my dear,” she said to Carol with a pleasant smile. “You’re a lovely couple. I think you should say yes.” She gave Carol a matronly pat on the arm and walked away.
A murmur of agreement rippled through the gathering crowd. Carol looked down at Brian’s handsome face. She reached out and touched his face.
“Let me make you happy, Carol, marry me,” he repeated.
“Yes.” Her voice was so quiet that she wasn’t certain she’d said the word aloud.

Excerpt:

There is a difference between getting to the practicality of the elements of English for writing, and just being flowery and overly-informative for the sake of stuffing words in with ten syllables each. Writers don’t need to be English professors, but they do need to have a strong grasp of the basics (and beyond.) Writing fiction is a creative process that uses non-fiction, English structure to tell the story. In other words, you must know how to tell your story, as much if not more so, what the story is about.

I picked this book up on a friends recommendation and I have to say this is the most complete guide for authors I've seen. When it says it covers everything from helping to create a book, writing tips and publishing and marketing, it meant it. A definite 5-star!

Practical Tips for Every Author, A Helpful Guide for the Practicing Author by Steve Soderquist is a comprehensive yet concise collection of writing wisdom, hard won over his many years as a writer, editor, and publisher. It covers all the basics of English language rules, but does it in a breezy style that is fun to read. Craft books run the risk of turning the art of writing into a mechanical formula more suited to an engineering class. This book keeps the reader turning pages with useful tips delivered with quips and anecdotes that are spot on and clever. The author also covers the structure of the novel, editing, the query, marketing and much more.

He also understands the writer’s journey from beginner to published author and offers support and encouragement. When you finish Practical Tips for Every Author, you know you can succeed as a writer and you’ll have the tools to do so.
