Welcome to the February 1998 issue!This month's interviews focus on two fascinating authors: Glenn Kleier and Stephanie Laurens, both of whom used somewhat unusual approaches in getting their first books published. Glenn Kleier's story is interesting because he forsaw an idea that would be very popular down the road, determined when it would be most popular, and when he would need to start working on the book. The result is The Last Day, the hot new Millennium thriller. Stephanie holds a Ph.D. and was a noted cancer researcher in Australia before she turned her hand to writing romance novels. Beginning writers will find both Glenn's and Stephanie's writing methods as interesting and instructive as they are different from one another.
We continue to bring you more books reviewed by our staff. This month we have expanded our nonfiction offerings to include some great cookbooks, in addition to other nonfiction works. Look for reviews of children's books in the near future. This month's writing-related book reviews include books which focus on finding ideas, improving your writing and submitting your work. We looked back over the last three years to find some of the best; we hope you find a valuable resource among them.
Good Luck and Good Writing!
