    And Then There Were Words

    in Entertainment

    Jilly Asks: 


    1) Last words: strategies for getting to the end and writing a good ending.


    2) How to avoid “and then” (sort of related to #1)


    3) Thoughts on cliffhangers as endings (also sort of related to #1)


    4) First words. I find the first paragraph to be the hardest writing in the story. What’s that process like for you and how do you approach what to write first?


    5) Have you ever abandoned a story? What’s the process you go through in making that decision?


     


    Tonight's So Far Unseen (in public) Required Short Pitch: Ten bodies later, you still don't have an ending and you hate yourself.

    Suspense, crime fiction author Earl Javorsky (Dan Howard) LIVE on Authors

    in Books

    “Earl Javorsky's bold and unusual DOWN SOLO blends the mysterious and the supernatural boldly and successfully. The novel is strong and haunting, a wonderful debut.”  – T. Jefferson Parker, New York Times bestselling author of FULL MEASURE and THE FAMOUS AND THE DEAD.


    Authors on the Air host Pam Stack welcomes suspense and crime fiction writer Earl Javorsky (also known as Dan Howard).  I have to agree with Jeff Parker and say that Dan's books are powerfully intense and immeasurably enjoyable. Here is a little more about "Earl" (and he promises to explain the pen name). " I was born in Berlin and emigrated to the US when I was two. My father had been an aerial photographer under Rommel in North Africa and worked as a cinematographer in NYC. My mother remarried when I was five and we were off to Hollywood, where my step-father had a contract with Paramount. Oddly, he had been a lieutenant in the US Navy off the coast of Italy.   I was a weird kid and made the appropriate adjustments.  After a long stint trying to make it as a musician in LA and clawing my way up to mid-level management in the chemical entertainment industry (just about killed me), I went back to my first love: writing. I had the good fortune to run into Lou Aronica, my editor at The Story Plant. I work as a proofreader/edito"r (www.theproofreader.org).

    Ron Felber~Author, Mojave Incident, A Chilling Story of Alien Abduction!

    in Paranormal

    Ron Felber began his career writing articles based on his experiences for True Detective magazine, and went on to write three books in the classic Nick Carter series. Like his protagonist Jack Madson in his thriller trilogy, Felber has worked as a deputy sheriff, transporting federal criminals, and has fought Golden Gloves. His book Il Dottore: The Double Life of a Mafia Doctor is the basis for the Fox television series The Mob Doctor. A graduate of Georgetown University, Ron Felber earned a master's degree in English from Loyola University Chicago and a doctorate from Drew University. He was the president and CEO of a major manufacturing company. Felber resides in New Jersey with his wife and children. Visit www.ronfelber.com


    "On the night of October 21, 1989, nine glowing objects appeared over an empty stretch of the Mojave desert—and turned a couple’s quiet weekend into an unearthly nightmare of terror. Elise and Tom Gifford say they were held captive in their camper by nonhuman creatures—and through love and prayer were able to live through psychological torment as their captors manipulated their minds with telepathic power. The Watchers hovered over them for a day and a night, they say, stealing their thoughts and emotions, making them relive their most painful and intimate memories, bringing them to the brink of madness. Hours later they were alone again—alive but the visits continued and the nightmare wasn’t over. Called "The most frightening UFO book ever written", The Mojave Incident touches the subconscious fears deep in all of us". Available on Amazon
