Tormenting Characters

@SamBakerWrites and @KrystleIII return for a lengthy discussion on the necessity and joy of tormenting your characters for the good of the story. We also make a few digressions into other arenas.

And the video as always.

Busy, Busy, Busy

Holy shazbot, business has definitely picked up in the last couple of weeks.  Here’s a partial list of what I have been or soon will be up to:

  • Mystery novel beta read
  • Another mystery novel beta read
  • Sci-fi novel review
  • Ghost writing a guide book
  • Writing a blurb for a band concert
  • Editing articles on direct response marketing
  • Writing a series on restaurant marketing
  • Writing an article on interview performance

In the near future, I’ll also be interviewing one of my oldest clients, the very first stranger to take a chance on my work.  I’m really looking forward to that one.

Also for the next few weeks, I may not be very present on the internet more than is absolutely necessary. It’s basically the result of piles of extra work at the day job.  Like extra work to the tune of 72hr weeks for the next month.  So yeah, I’ll be posting and tweeting sporadically at best.  After that, I’ll be back with a vengeance.

Interview with Deanna Verhoff

First, I apologize for not posting for a couple of weeks.  It has been insanely busy here at Gingerman HQ.  Second, I apologize as well for the lousy lighting in this video.  We had a ton of technical difficulties to overcome on this one.  Now on to more important things.

Deanna is one of the most talented writers I have had the pleasure to work with.  I’ve only been able to fully edit one of her books and begin reading another but from what I can tell, both are excellent and in a class of their own.  More than that, it would be best to let the interview do the talking.
