Busy with Editing and Publishing my Craft of Fiction Articles

I've been very busy editing fiction manuscripts, mostly thrillers, mysteries, romantic suspense and other crime fiction, as well as publishing my craft of fiction articles on various writers' blogs, so my own blogspot here is getting negelected.

In fact, today (Jan. 19, 2012), I have four different articles published on four different sites:

Hot off the press - "Check Your Facts, Ma'am!" (so you don't annoy and alienate your readers) is up on Blood-Red Pencil blogspot, at

And an updated version of my "Thrillers vs. Mysteries" is up on The Thrill Begins blogspot, at

Also, Part 3 of "Tension on Every Page" (with parts 1 & 2 just below it) is up on DP Lyle, MD's blog, Writer's Forensics Blog, at

And "Essential Elements of a Bestselling Thriller" is up at Suspense Magazine's blog:

Drop on over to any or all of them, and leave a comment if you have a minute to spare!

And keep on writing!


  1. Good luck with all of that editing and publishing you have to do! I've been reading your articles all over the web - you are one busy woman, Jodie. You're also one of my writing heroines. *blush*

  2. Thank you so much for your kind words, M.E.! I love reading the wise words of the writing "gurus" and making notes, then compiling their ideas into articles - and crediting the sources, of course. And more and more, adding my own ideas from my experiences reading and editing fiction, especially for suspense fiction, which I read and edit more than any other.

    I'm so glad writers like you find my advice helpful - and look forward to reading your fiction!

  3. Wow, nice post,there are many person searching about that now they will find enough resources by your post
