Meet a Jerk, Get to Work, How to Write Villains and the Occasional Hero

I read this book last weekend, and I think that what I wrote about it on Goodreads says it all. Here's what I had to say about it:

I simply adored this little article!

I don't want to steal the author's thunder, but it's basically about observation. It's about watching and listening to real people in real situations around you and drawing your inspiration from them, specifically to write murder mysteries, but really it's applicable to any genre.

The article really gets the creative juices flowing. I might just consider writing a murder mystery at some point!

Seriously, if you want to write better characters, give this article a read. You can find it on Goodreads here. It's a free download on Amazon and a couple of other e-book retailers, so give it a Google.

While you're about it, do have a look at my short story, A Petition to Magic. Find it on Goodreads here. You'll find links to the book on Smashwords and Booktango, but it's available from other retailers as well. As above, Google it!
