A place to talk about books, publishing, things that amuse me, and the occasional rant.



This isn't a book review, but it is a video series on writing fiction, and it's geared to crime fiction and thrillers. Because I teach a number of workshops on the craft of fiction, I’ve been toying with the idea of producing short videos about it, and I decided to go ahead with them.

I’m calling the series “Writing Lite” because none of the videos will be over 3 minutes. (This one clocks in at 2:30), and this first one is about suspense, which is probably my favorite workshop to teach.

The plan is to have a new video every week, but we’ll see how that pans out. Bear in mind these videos will be short highlights, not a detailed tutorial. Still, I hope you get some worthwhile information from them. If you like this one, I'll post some more, so let me know what you think. Really. I don't want to bore anyone.

At any rate, here’s the introductory video.
