From protagonists and antagonists, to dialogue and conflict, DIGITAL INK is a powerful, succinct, and entertaining book that will dramatically improve any writer’s work.

Suddenly it's a cinch to publish -- pop your manuscript up online via Amazon’s KDP, INScribe, Smashwords, or NOOK and voilá, you've got an e-book. The number of authors, self-published and otherwise, is exploding. But what everybody seems to be talking about is marketing. They're overlooking the actual writing. There’s a lot of talk about the sizzle, and yet scant attention to the steak.

This book says hold on a minute! It's not just marketing; it has to be a great book. You have to know how to write. Funny and fast, as a book must be in the digital age, DIGITAL INK takes you through all the basics: dialogue, plot, character development, POV, and more. DIGITAL INK will transform your writing.

I cannot say enough about this book. It's funny, concise, clear, and useful -- absolutely the best book about writing I've ever read.

 Digital Ink knocks you down and blows you over. I have never laughed as much whilst learning so much. My favorite quote is: "You can market your heart out, you can tweet and blog like a hacker on meth, but if you have not written a compelling novel that makes the reader want to put everything else on hold, you’re not going to make the sale."

The absolute best book to improve your writing if you are writing (or editing) romance, mysteries, suspense, thrillers, sci fi, fantasy, contemporary fiction, or for that matter, historical fiction -- any genre where you want to nail the basic structure. Great resource. Don't write without it!
