Twisting the Plot with Ghosts, Mike Hammer, and Bee Tigers

My friend Al Ghostman Place just sold 8 copies of his Pat Canella book and he's chuffed. He said he did it by twisting the Mike Hammer plot with some of his ghostly inventions.

Sometimes a small twist will make a big difference.

  • Use what you're best at
  • Twist it
  • Use a tried and true formula and twist it
  • Write what interests you
  • Write what you know and what you'd like to know
  • Know the rules and bend them
  • Know the rules and break them
  • Write and edit edit edit
  • Listen to the experts but use your own voice
  • Don't be too proud to take advice
  • Build a platform
Al has done all these things. I'm trying to listen to my very wise publisher, Cheryl Tardif (like Dr. Who) from Imajin Books, and also use my own intelligence and intuition eventually...Cheryl, I will do that! Be prepared, you've launched a Bee tiger.

  1. GHOSTS, GHOSTS, GHOSTS - A ghost is the second main character in my WIP for a YA Paranormal/Time Travel/First Kiss romance manuscript. I've found there's a lot of things you can do when you use a ghost for a main character. To read a few snippets from my manuscript please use this link =
