It's that time again! The new issue of Writers' Tricks of the Trade eZine just published.

If you are not familiar with Writers' Tricks of the Trade, this is your chance to check it out. 


Every issue is filled with tips, techniques, stories, review(s), industry news, conference listings and more. 

The mailing list has grown to a point where we are now switching over to using MAILCHIMP as the mailing list manager. At some point, all notifications of a new issue will be through the MailChimp software, so to put your name on the mailing list please visit 

The information will not be used for any other purpose.

TIP: Be careful of overusing adjectives and adverbs. I just read what would have been a 4 or 5 star book but for the overuse of these pesky adverbs and adjectives that filled every chapter in the book.

For example, is it necessary to say "inched slowly?" When one inches, isn't it done slowly? Or, "What!" he said excitedly. Oh no. That exclamation point certainly tells the reader that the speaker is excited or agitated.

Happy reading and writing.
