John Beckman
"Internationally known Author!"


I am proud that I have readers in Canada, Germany, France, Australia and, of course, I am quite honored that Americans are reading my work. The greatest satisfaction writers get, is not the money which is insignificant, but from having people in other parts of the world reading my humble offerings. Since we make only miniscule amounts of money from Amazon, if you enjoy my work a short one or two line review on Amazon would be a great reward for me.

I've started putting some hints on this page that might be of use to beginning writers. Here's a HINT: Setting goals is good, but do not be too hard on yourself. I try to write something every day. It may be a chapter or two on the ficiton I'm working on, or it may simply be this web site or my blog. And then I take a break and go for a walk or spend somee time reading. The point is: WRITE SOMETHING EVERY DAY including weekends and holidays. Does that sound like too much work? "Aw hell, I work 8-5 all week, I need to play golf on Sundays." Fine. All of life is made up of CHOICES. You can play golf all you like. OR, you can be a writer. I'm not trying to tell you how to run your life. BUT, if writing is important to you, the answer is quite simple. YOU MUSTWRITE! And you must do it REGULARLY!

Next week I'm going to give you a hint on "Advertising" your work. I'll suggest what to do and what NOT to do.

The new novel I'm working on (The Man Next Door) is now is through the second rewrite stage. Some tidying up to do. Still hoping the published book will be available by late fall in time for the Christmas season. This will be in eBook form only on Amazon. I'll keep you posted on my progress . Until next week, keep reading and --->Straight ahead!
