I never name call anyone. I am always polite and rational with anyone with any discussion. If or when a person earns my ire I tend to grumble a lot, though I do step back and think about the situation which has arisen. I will help as much as I can or as the client will let me…One thing I am clear about is when a client has approved a final file then they will need to pay for extra work, whether the original job was a swap of skills, paid or a package.

Happy Monday to all the Story Empire readers. It’s so good to be back with all of you once again to share a few helpful (hopefully) thoughts. Today I wanted to share a few tweaks so that you can use Dragon Naturally Speaking with Scrivener. Let’s jump right in and get to it.
Dictation with Dragon & Scrivener
Nuance created Dragon NaturallySpeaking
For those who may have missed my last few posts, I will include a few links back to those so that you can get more detailed information about Dragon. I’ve been using Dragon now for a couple of months which has allowed me to make significant progress in two novel projects. In fact, I am working on both projects at the same time as I write this post. That’s the power of Dragon; I can dictate while I’m in the car and edit the other book at nigh…

Author Dwayne Alexander Smith is in the spotlight in this post from the Confessions of a Mystery Novelist blog
Welcome to another edition of In The Spotlight. There’s something about a secretive group that’s a natural fit with the thriller novel. And I’m sure you could think of plenty of examples. Let’s see how that fit works with a most unusual secretive group, and turn today’s spotlight on Dwayne Alexander Smith’s Forty Acres.

It’s a bit of a ‘David and Goliath’ situation, but Grey is no slouch, and he wins the case. To Grey’s shock, Darrell stops by his law office later to offer congratulations and to invite Grey and his wife, Anna, to dinner. Surprised, but…
