Practice Makes Perfect

I didn't like the preview of Four Dog Riot that I put up in the blog recently.  Here's a better one:  Preview of Four Dog Riot (click here).  It's a 3 minute mp3 audio file.

For me, the hardest part of writing a novel isn't the writing.  The hardest part is answering the question: "What's it about?"

It's easier to say what it's not about:  construction, dogs, riots.

My stories are driven by character, not plot.  How do you sum up a bunch of characters in just a few words?  The book cover (by Melody Pilotte) does a better job of introducing them.  Four kids, one guitar, and a world of change.
