Jude Hardin replied to Leye Adenle's discussion Help with fleshing out a narrator
"Write your story your way. Prologues are fine. Backstory is fine. Flashbacks are fine. It's all in the execution. I've seen them all done brilliantly. Whatever works. Ignore anyone who tells you differently."

Jude Hardin replied to Dan L. Coleman's discussion CALL FOR WRITING PEEVES
"My two major pet peeves are sound effects and stage directions in prose. I've actually seen writers use "knock Knock" and "Bang." These are fine in children's books, but have no business in adult novels. A writer should…"

Jude Hardin replied to Dan L. Coleman's discussion THE "BUT" COMMA
"Genre writers frequently avoid long sentences because their audiences are unable to cope with them and toss the book to reach for an easier reader. Or maybe we avoid long sentences because we believe less is often more. Because, to us, clean is…"

I too have submitted my second novel to Amazon's Thomas & Mercer. That was over two weeks ago.

Congrats on the deal and I wish you much success.

If anyone is looking for links to what Amazon is doing with their Imprints I can forward you the links.

It's going to be the future of publications as it cuts out the Publication Houses. My first novel took over fifteen months to complete the publication cycle. Nothing should take that long!

Best regards,

Dick C Waters

Jude, I'm particularly interested (and sending even more kudos) because my agent was turned down after T&M expressed great interest earlier in the year. I have a suspicion that my agent mishandled the deal.  It may be time for me to look around.  You have Joe's agent, right?

Thanks for the friend-invite, Jude. Looking forward to chatting with you on these pages.

Hey Jude--did you toss your Stephen King/Stephanie Meyer thread? It was kind of interesting, I thought.
At 2:11am on July 24, 2008, Jude Hardin said…
Hey Jack,

I pulled the manuscript and spent about six months on a rewrite. Now it's back with my agent and will be back on submission to editors soon. Thanks for asking!

Hey, Jude.
(Gee, that sounds like something from my past...hmmm.)
Seriously--WTF ever happened to your submission? Is the agent still working it? How about you? Are you writing something else?

Hi Jude
Congrats on getting an agent. Next step: publication.
Keep writing.

Hi Carole. Thanks for stopping by. Looking forward to the excerpt.

Keep breathing! Oxygen is, you know, good for you. You need some...every day.

Thanks, Karen! I'm thrilled to be a small part of Jack Getze's next release; and, my agent, Jay Poynor, is first-rate. 2007 has been a good year so far!
