Writing Books/website


Susan, I've already contacted you through your website. I asked you what your mentoring entails and how to get started with that, but I never received a response.

I would really like it if I could send you my first chapter, to see what you think about it.

Shall I email it to you through pygmypress?

John, I am sorry if you didn't get a response to your email. Sometimes emails go astray. Did your email come back to you?

I have answered a couple of questions lately about my mentoring program. If you will give me your address, I will send the information.

In regard to your first chapter, please visit my website.

I can answer questions about the elements of fiction and non-fiction writing: how to get started, writing techniques, re-writing, etc. I will NOT write for you, do critiques except from my website at http://pygmypress.com, or give you ideas. I will not answer home-or-schoolwork questions in any category. If English is your second language, please say so, and I will make an exception. Please submit no more than one or two questions at once, as I tend to go into detail in my answers.
