Character building

I received an invitation from an interesting new independent publishing venture this week. The curiously, wonderfully named The Gentlemen Press, based in Birmingham (West Midlands, not Alabama), specialises in new and emerging young-adult fiction and is launching its enterprise with a short story competition for writers aged 13 to 21. The winning entries will be collected in an anthology.

To coincide with the competition, The Gentlemen Press is posting a series of blogs commissioned from published writers, offering tips and reflections on various elements of the writing process. I was asked to put together a few words on characterization.

Subscribing to our Latest News

I regularly publish news items about book launches, events as well as anything else that occurs to me and I can send these to you directly whenever a new one is published. There are 2 ways I can do this.

The easiest and most common way is via email. All you have to do is click the envelope button in the header of the web site and tell us your email address. You will then be sent an email asking you to confirm your subscription which you do by clicking in a link in that email. That's it ! From then on, you will receive updates and you can unsubscribe at any time by following the link in any of the News updates.

The other method is using an RSS Reader. If you already follow some blogs using Google Reader or another news aggregator, you can add updates from my site to your list of subscriptions. Just press the RSS button in the header and select your RSS reader and that's it. You can unsubscribe at any time using your RSS Reader.

Of course, all this is completely FREE of charge.
