My old site name, JimMagwood.com, is no longer available because when I got sick and was out with surgeries, someone took over the name. So, please reset your addresses to use the new site name, JimMagwood.org.
Welcome to my site. I've been a writer for several years and have greatly appreciated the help other people have given me. You can look me up at the About button.
I'm really into two things now.
One is writing new novels and getting them out to you, the readers. I enjoy the writing, and I especially enjoy hearing from my reading public. You'll find the novels here and I hope you'll enjoy them (and that you'll write me.)
The other thing is helping other authors, both new and seasoned, in their writing endeavors. Yes, I'm a ghostwriter and you can read more about that here. The other, more important thing, is that I want to pass on some of the help I've received to other people on this writing journey.
So, jump in and see what all there might be to excite you.
Here are some of the things you'll find in the site.
1. Here are all my novels. See them and read the descriptions; buy them here or through PayPal; get FREE samples.
2. Great helps for writers. Get a FREE book on writing how-tos. Check the sources for other help items. Check out the people who are willing to help.
What does it take to be an author? It is not just sitting down with an idea and writing a book. There's so much more. But two main things are always there.
One is deciding what you want to do, then making plans necessary to write: find a place to do your work; get the materials necessary; research your story idea; and write. (Check out the book "So You've Written A Book. Now What?" for the details.)
The other thing is to grab on to the determination to get it done and to not let anything deter you. (More on that in the book, "So You've Written A Book. Now What?") It will take work. It's not easy. But, you CAN eventually say, "I did it."
So you've started writing a book, and now you're stuck? What's it all about anyway, and what are you supposed to know? Everything here (So You've Written A Book. Now What?) is gathered from my years of learning how to write and I want to share it with you, so click to the book page and read all about it.
