Every month we get wonderful articles from people in the industry, listings of writers conferences and helpful links, brags from our readers and much more.

The Life Stories feature has yielded some very entertaining stories from readers every month.

A TowelMaster paper towel dispenser like the ones you see in gas station restrooms.

John Brantingham talks about what he learned as an editor in Part II of his topic, Irene Watson discusses the state of bookstores, and Fred Rayworth shares insight on using point of view with Part I of his article. Mike Dennis reviews the latest book by Max Allen Collins, the author of Road to Perdition and the resurrected Mickey Spillane novels. To round it out, my article is "What Are Your Characters Thinking?"
