Sparkplug 2.0 – back from the dead

You may have noticed that I haven’t been keeping the blog up to date lately.  Thanks to Ted Rushton for helping to fill the gaps.

I have decided to re-up the site and take it in a new direction.

First, a little background.  I have worked as a professional writer and corporate communicator for the past couple of decades.  During that time I have written everything from magazine articles to product brochures.

After writing two published non-fiction books in the past five years, last year I decided to try my hand at fiction.  The result is two novels in a mystery series set in a small Michigan tourist town.  The people who have read them like them and I really enjoyed writing them.

But as every profession writer will tell you, writing a good novel is only a small part of the battle.  You actually have to get out there and sell what you have written and that’s a tough job especially with the publishing industry in flux.

While the act of writing is a singular pursuit, I thought it might be fun to take you through the ups and downs of the writing profession.

This will truly be an act of collaboration and I am hoping that fellow aspiring, and professional, writers will contribute to this blog.

It should be a fun trip…
