Stop What You're Doing and Write! Yes, You; Write! Most writing guides imply - or outright state - that there's a fixed, specific formula or list of rules you must follow to achieve writing and publishing success. And all of them are phonies. Well, not completely. There are real, applicable techniques and strategies in any writing reference to help you. But the idea that there's only one way of writing? Nuts! With unconventional approaches to the craft, fresh angles on novel writing and selling, a healthy dose of humour, and no promise of refunds, Writing Without Rules is for those writers who have tried and tried again - and are ready to success on their own terms. In these pages, accomplished author Jeff Somers will show you: The key to a successful writing career is doing the actual writing, no matter the circumstances. Fantastic ideas are available everywhere - you just need to know how to tap into sources through a variety of approaches. Important craft aspects that you should focus on, such as characters and dialogue, while spending less time on others, like setting. Effective ways to get published - whether it's traditional or self-publishing - and how to supplement your income. Whether you're a plotter, a pantser, or somewhere in-between, Writing Without Rules is for those writers who are looking for a fresh take on tackling the challenge of writing and selling a novel, and building a career. As Somers will show you, it's less about being perfect in everything, and more about having the confidence to complete everything.

He has published nine novels, forty short stories, also writes about books for Barnes and Noble and Abou
