A few months ago, I taught an online class for the Savvy Authors chapter of the Romance Writers of America. The class, of course, was about violence. It was well-received and the students were a kick: intelligent, insightful and full of good questions.

So it seemed natural to expand the lessons into a manual.

It was too short, just barely, for a standard book. Plus I doubt I have the reputation to get a book on writing to a major publisher.

A third consideration is that considering the lag time between submission and publishing, even if I was very lucky it wouldn't be out to readers for two years.

So I asked Steve Perry about e-publishing, he told me about Smashwords and...

30 sales in less than 48 hours. It may actually have an ISBN soon.
It's a whole new world.
