After over 30 years as both a defense lawyer and prosecutor, I often say: "You coudn't make a reality show about what I've experienced...no one would believe it! I write mystery/suspense novels about these funny, odd, tragic, and gripping stories.
That's a wide open question! Here's more than you probably wanted to know. I'm a mystery author and dog lover. (My papillons and I are learning clicker training and canine freestyle.) The first book in my detective series is RACING THE DEVIL, written under the pseudonym E. Michael Terrell. I sound like a cozy writer, but my books are far from cozy. They're PI novels, fairly gritty, I call my protagonist, Jared, a hardboiled hero with heart. I help organize the Killer Nashville Crime Literature Conference. I was a special ed teacher for 12 years and now work for an educational assessment company. OF course, I'd love to be able to write full time. Your turn! Now tell me all about you.
I think that's a great idea. I hope it works out well for you. Are you going to do a comprehensive email blast or target it? Will your email have a link to the pages, or are you going to paste them into the email? Or will it be just a download available on your computer?
Hi Colin -- Thanks for accepting the invite. With 30 years as a defense lawyer and prosecutor, I have no doubt that you have no shortage of material for your fiction. Best of luck with your novel. I think that these days every author has to be willing to get involved in marketing their book, regardless of who's publishing. Reece
