Writing The Books Is Really The Easiest Part

One thing to remember when you write your book is to keep it as timeless as possible. That way, whenever it is read it will seem as if to be both in the present and in the past.

Why We Do It, Why We Write

We write because we have to, it is in our blood and gut. We write because someone pays us to do something we love.
