Thanks to a comment from fellow dog writer Mayra Calvani on my last post, I've discovered another excellent blog. Suspense novelist Alexandra Sokoloff's blog has free articles on elements of a novel including a handy checklist of what should go in each part of a novel. Great stuff even for someone who doesn't write suspense.
Also, you can now read my article Frozen Turd Wars on the Dogs in Canada website. Each month they feature an article from their recent issue and this month, mine was selected! You can vote for it too. The best part for me is the exceptional skill of the illustrator who brought Apollo to life. He even nailed Apollo's demonic stare.
