The Word Volume 1 by Simon Duringer
Have you ever fantasized about working alongside screen legends as their equal? What would it take to work for the same publisher as Dan Brown, or better still, to be nominated for and awarded an Oscar, Pulitzer, Emmy or Best Novel Award? How would an entertainer survive on a desert island with nobody to entertain…what keepsakes would companion them? What thoughts would cross your mind moments before death? Who inspires the inspirational; who do they hold high on a pedestal? Why do writers choose traditional publishing or independent publishing and vice versa?
The answers to these questions and so much more are contained within. With contributions from award winning novelists, directors, publishers and artists including;
Josephine Bailey, Martin Fletcher, Russell Blake, Giles Kristian, Doran Ingrham, Leigh Russell, Claude Bouchard, Phil Hogan, Tim Stevens, Rene Schultz, John Putnam, Matt Lynn, Paul Demeyer, Debra Salonen, Jake Needham, Robert Joseph Ahola, Garrard Hayes, Laura Taylor, James Becker, M J Summers, Ken Farmer & Buck Stienke, H Alan Day, Jack Hayes, Andrew Hughes, Michael Sherer, Alex Cord, Conn Iggulden, Jon King, Epilogue an interview with Author Simon Duringer by Matt Posner.
Top Customer Reviews
in The Word, Simon Dusty Duringer offers us a real tour de force of networking and interviewing skills. He has put together a stunning roster of top-level authorial talent in many genres, especially crime and suspense fiction. If you like writers, there is not a dull page in this book; all the authors are at their best. His top ten questions are well-crafted to bring out their personalities, their personal histories, and their expertise, and believe me, every author has a lot of each. Simon and I have interviewed each other (my interview of him appears in this book) and I can testify to his use of skillful questioning as well as profuse charm to pull things together.
Simon has added a charitable donation to the many reasons to purchase this book. If you find writers fascinating — and you will, in this case — then go on and hit that purchase button.
I received an advance review copy of this book at my request from the author, with whom I am professionally connected.
