A Special Message from Morgan:

Thanks to everyone who sent me such great comments about the first issue of Writers' Tricks of the Trade Newsletter. Even though the newsletter publication date is set for the 15th of the month, ISSUE 2 was ready, it's great and I wanted to upload it before I leave for Australia. So here it is---2 weeks early! The October issue WILL be published on the 15th of October.

It is exciting to see all of the terrific articles this month from across the country, with a wonderful lineup of contributors currently being calendared for the rest of the year. There is also a listing of good writers' conferences at the end. You can have blog posts and the newsletters delivered directly to you in a variety of ways. Just click the SUBSCRIBE TO on the right to see what's available, or click FOLLOW. 

If you enjoy the newsletter, and I know you will, please pass it on to your writer friends. If you belong to a writers' group, please post it on their message board or Yahoo group. And, if you write articles or have brags, please contact me about submitting for future issues.

With the exception of some Facebook posts, I will be doing very little posting to social media during the month of September while I'm traveling, so please check back often if you aren't a subscriber.

WRITERS' TRICKS OF THE TRADE: 39 Things You Need to Know About the ABCs of Writing Fiction has just been released in paperback, Kindle and eBooks. More and more websites are picking it up and you can also order the paperback at your favorite brick and mortar bookstore. Currently also available online in the UK and Canada. Soon in Australia.

Writers Tricks' of the Trade is a great handy reference for fiction writers at every stage of the game. The list price is $16.95, but Amazon currently has a super introductory price of ONLY $13.22 for the paperback. I don't know how long that will last. If you enjoy my columns and newsletter, do yourself a favor. Add it to your bookshelf.
