W.a. Warner replied to Victoria Dougherty's discussion Noir
"Bladerunner is kind of sci-fi noir, don't you think?  The classic James Bond novels were very noir.  Even the recent films have a strong noir influece.  Spy Noir?"

W.a. Warner replied to Victoria Dougherty's discussion Noir
"I pick up books, especially short story collections, claiming to be Noir.  They usually turn out to be just regular mysteries.  I think the term has gotten too loose.  IMHO, a noir hero shouldn't openly proclaim to be seeking…"

W.a. Warner replied to Jed Power's discussion Opinion on this please
"Wow.  .75 cents a book might be okay if you were selling nationwide, but sounds like only the bookstore is profiting here (and more from you than the customer...)  I was recently informed of the tactic of Reverse Shoplifting.  Heard…"

W.a. Warner replied to James Fouche's discussion Where are all the agents?
"I'm inherently suspicious anytime someone tries to sell me something, so I was resistant to overpriced writers conferences.  However, at the urging of a close friend, I went to one.  It was surprisingly easy to get agents to read a…"

W.a. Warner replied to minervaK's discussion formatting email queries
"I've had the same problem.  It's worse when they want sample chapters, a synopsis and a CV pasted in.  Inevitably it gets screwed up in formatting. What I did is draft my query in an email and save it as a draft.  Then I…"

W.a. Warner replied to Cammy May Hunnicutt's discussion Attacking writers on their amazon pages
"Sorry to hear about the annoyance.  Sounds like you're handling well.  Perhaps your subject matter hit a little close to home for this reviewer.  Maybe your female protagonists should stop sticking up for themselves in your…"

I. J. Parker replied to W.a. Warner's discussion Synopsis Concern!
"I haven't done a synopsis since the eighties, though I recall being terrified.  Any summary of a novel tends to read awkward.  I'm with Dana.  I think he's got the best approach to the monster.  My guess is that…"

W.a. Warner replied to W.a. Warner's discussion Synopsis Concern!
"Thanks.  Yeah, this is a formal synopsis for the agent, not a teaser.  The draft I've been working reads a lot like you've described with note cards.  With most mysteries, as is the case with mine, the story doesn't…"

Dana King replied to W.a. Warner's discussion Synopsis Concern!
"What is the synopsis for? if it's for the cover/teaser copy, Jack has it nailed. If it's for a submission (Provide a one/two/three-page synopsis), what has worked for me is to chart each chapter. (Index cards, dry erase…"

Jack Getze replied to W.a. Warner's discussion Synopsis Concern!
"Read the back cover of some popular mysteries. That's what a good synopsis sounds like. Hook the reader, but tell them nothing about the twists or ending."
