I've got a little book out in time for Christmas

A little while back, I wrote some writing lessons for the National Post. Now I’ve teamed up with Upstart Press to expand them and release them as a chapbook. It’s the perfect stocking stuffer for the sociopath writer in your life, and may or may not contain such valuable tips as:

If your father comes after your family with a gun, then make damn sure you write about it before he does.

Writing fiction is about getting even with your ex-lovers.

Write what you know, unless what you know happens to be criminal in nature. It turns out police officers sometimes read literary fiction. Who knew?

Don’t quit your day job. Your co-workers and family may be the only people to buy your book.

Don’t assault your editor until your book has actually been published.

You can buy it online from Upstart Press or selected bookstores. I’m not sure which ones, because Upstart is selecting them.

Oh, did I mention it’s only $7? That’s less than you’re going to spend on postage for Christmas cards this year.
