A Rare Resource for Writers

     Here’s something different. If you are a writer, you will see the value of this.

     Jim Heskett, author of at least 16 published books, has a unique audio program that you can find on iTunes. He not only gives tips for writers about technology, marketing, and the process of writing, he reads a chapter from his first (unpublished) novel, and then critiques it. He explains what works or doesn’t work, and how it could have been done better.

     Over the years I have read lots of books about the craft of writing. I’ve gone to seminars, group meetings, publishing events, and fan events. I took a bunch of writing classes, too. Most of these things were worthwhile and I could recommend the same to anyone who is serious about writing, but none of us have enough time to do it all.

     This is something you can listen to while driving to work or pruning your roses.  Ah…. that elusive multitasking finally works.

     Check it out on iTunes (Indie Author Answers) and visit his website (  for lots more interesting things.
