Hey! I'm not the only multi-genre person after all. LOL. Welcome to the blog, Robert. Congratulations on all the writing success.
Thank you, Susan.
I live near Wichita, Kansas. I suppose Kansas runs through my work, and not just my nonfiction. The home planet of Lisa Herbert (Lisa’s Way) looks like this part of Kansas. Part of Monitor is set in a fictional version of Wichita. The people around the state that I know and like have a spirit of community, and that infuses some of my main characters. Some events in the histories I’ve written have become plots for my fiction.
Wow! How prolific!
My latest book is another collection: The Frigate Victory Collection, Volume 2: Pirates & Diplomats. Here’s what it’s about:
What advice can you give new writers?
Write every day, even if it’s only a page or two. Come up with plenty of ideas, so getting blocked on one project doesn’t keep you from writing. Be open to advice, but don’t be so open that you let others dictate your style. Don’t give up! You only fail to be a writer if you stop writing.
Through the rest of this year and next, I plan to do events to promote my nonfiction book Kansas County Seat Conflicts. At that point I intend to put my nonfiction writing on indefinite hold.
I have a blog, One Kansas Author (http://robertlcollins.blogspot.com/) and a Facebook author page (http://www.facebook.com/RobertLCollinsAuthor).
It was my pleasure, Susan. Thanks again for inviting me.
