Hi everyone! Recently we noticed other author resources using the name Authors Helping Authors. We also thought the name might not reach out to readers looking for books, but rather authors looking for help. In an effort to keep our originality and make our page into more of a reader resource, we felt a name change was necessary. We renamed our page BROWSE for BOOKS. READ MORE
Our heart is to help indie authors get a boost in the vast sea of books. Everything remains the same in our…

I sent an early mystery to a publisher who had already published one of my novels, but she rejected it, saying that, in a mystery, the victim is only there to provide a puzzle for the reader. Therefore, I should bump somebody — anybody — off in the first few pages and devote the rest of the novel to the investigation. Following her own advice, she rejected my novel on the grounds that I didn’t kill anyone until just over a…

"On Both Sides of the Abyss"
At a quarter to five pm Abdul Karim collected the top secret documents on his desk and went over to his safe to store them, as he was crouched before the open safe his office door was opened up suddenly and Rashid brandishing a Colt forty five in his extended forward hand entered, accompanied by two young men carrying sub machine guns in their hands.… READ MORE

The evolvement of a book
At the beginning of the 80s of the previous century (the 20th) I've written a collection of short stories, which were dedicated to the world of art in my country.
Although these short stories were my very early creation, which have been defined as imperfect; I aspired to have it published and I roamed between our prominent publishing… READ MORE

Are great writers born, or are they created?
Long, long ago when I was a little girl, my mother would read to me as some of you may know from reading my bio. I’ve always believed it was she who taught me to love books and the escape they can bring. But, maybe my brain cells were just configured in a way that made me receptive to her stories. Maybe another child would have been wiggling… READ MORE

There's too much distraction in the world. To borrow a phrase from William Wordsworth, here and now.
Suddenly we're bombarded by too much electronic equipment. We pay close attention to whatever's ongoing in Twitt, what our friends are up to in Facebook, how many celebrities are getting married, who's getting divorced, and what the boring housewives whether in Atlanta or Hollywood are up to, we forget the things we once used to do. The things that used to make us human.
We… READ MORE

I'm not a fan of writing a story based on plot lines. Matter of fact, I've never story boarded a plot line frame before starting a work. It's inconveniencing and tends to weight down my time whenever I attempt such.
Of course, that's just me. I have no idea what means of writing other authors would use, as long as it works for them. I do remember reading a Stephen King interview and he too voiced the same concern as never being a fan of mapping out plot lines. And I tend to agree… READ MORE

A FIRST DATE DISASTER WITH A HAPPY ENDING
It was September 1958. I was on the battalion soccer team while I was stationed with the 237th Engineer Battalion in Heilbronn Germany. It was part of an American/German relationship building program.
Our Battalion Commander was the kind of leader that had to win no matter what the event was. However, in this case, we had a little problem. Only a quarter of the team had ever played soccer before. So, he hired an… READ MORE
