In short

  • RikScott v.7.1

    I have been writing for a long time, and actually thought of myself as serious about it.  That was until I joined WEbook and discovered what really working at it meant.  Writing is the hardest "occupation" I have ever had, and the most fulfilling.

    A little over three years ago (as of this update) I took an unexpected hiatus in my writing “career”, during which time I helped re-open a bookstore in Kingston Washington.  I’ve really missed writing.

    So, now I’m back, and anxious to get back into the WEbook community.

    That said, I will be happy to read and review your work as
    time permits, but PLEASE understand, only ask me to look if you want an honest TECHNICAL review.  While I appreciate good content, I am especially interested in good grammar, punctuation, spelling, and the PACE of your story.  Oh, I’m also of the opinion that “clever” formatting or “special” fonts are an insult to your reader.  Kind of death on that stuff.

    Thanks!

  • I have been fortunate enough to meet and befriend many good writers here at WEbook. Oh, and one of my novels won top honors at a WEbook competition.

  • Hmm.... He's not a "character", but writer Colin Wilson.  I'd like to experience a mind that can write a book that has something to make you stop, think, and wonder every couple of pages.
