Authors Road Interview Features Tom Robbins

Friends and Fellow Authors Road Passengers,

We are very pleased and proud to present our latest video and audio interview with one of our favorite writers, Tom Robbins. At 36 minutes it is longer than our usual 20 minute goal, but we just couldn't help ourselves.

Since early childhood Robbins has been in love with writing, and he has devoted his life to this art with his publication of some of the most well-known, well-loved books of all time. It’s no surprise that he was named as one of the 100 Best Writers of the 20th Century by Writer’s Digest Magazine. We found him to be an intensely intelligent and generous man – and the funny, charming, slightly off-kilter writer we know from his books.

We hope you enjoy watching or listening to this interview as much as we did making it.

A Story is a Promise & The Spirit of Storytelling Available

A fourth edition of my writing workbook, A Story is a Promise & The Spirit of Storytelling, is now available for $2.99 from Amazon Kindle.

This new edition offers new, unique tools for creating vibrant story characters and recognizing some of the main flawed character types in novels: characters who are emotionally numb, stuck, or too wounded to act.

If you've ever been told your minor characters are more interesting than your main character, this workbook will give you the tools you need to transform your writing.

If you've found value on this site, please buy the book for yourself or as a gift for another writer.

The book is available on several other e-book formats--including Nook, Kobo, and Sony--through Smashwords.

My friends George Mason and Salli Slaughter have started a project they call Authors Road. Details below.


Friends and Lovers of The Word,

We are so very pleased to present a video and audio interview with New York Times bestselling mystery writer, Robert Dugoni. Robert knew early on that he wanted to be a writer (it was either that or weed the iceplant!), but circumstances led him to a successful career as an attorney instead. And then one day, as the story goes, he knew it was time to change and follow his real dream ….

Robert’s story is fascinating as he sacrificed and struggled to perfect his art of story telling, and how he has made it a point to give back to others and help prospective writers also follow their dreams.
