Sunsets & Semicolons - a Frank & Revealing Field Guide to the Writing Life From struggling as a beginning writer and learning everything he could squeeze out of books and articles on creativity, writing, and publishing, Greg Lilly stepped his way from technical writer to technology analyst to infrastructure architect of a major corporation then took a turn in his path to magazine editor, fiction author and small press publisher. The shift from the Information Technology world to a Writer's Life was a 40th birthday re-invention with some squeaks and bumps along the way. That perilous journey led Greg to develop and conduct several acclaimed workshops and seminars for aspiring writers. He shares his experiences and techniques - things that worked, not in academia or in New York City, but in the real world of freelancing and query letters and book signings. The kernel of this book came from requests of those workshop handouts and notes. "This is one writer's life," he says, "from creativity to craft, staring at sunsets to sweating over semicolons. This is my opinion, but certainly not the only one out there. These tips and suggestions have worked for me over time, and I hope they give you some guidance and sparks of insight." This is a field guide to navigating the Writer's Life. "This guide does not teach you how to write. It gives you tips for the trenches of writing: developing an idea so it makes it to the page; overcoming writer's block when the words don't flow; strengthening the pace of the manuscript so readers are breathless; and finally, how to sell your manuscript to a publisher - from an insider's viewpoint." Discover advice from testing an idea for a novel to perfecting a query letter that sells that novel to a publisher - in a frank and revealing Field Guide to the Writer's Life.

Manny dedicated his life to his work for more than thirty years. He’s not sure what retirement will hold for him—not sure he’ll be able to slow down that much. But he doesn’t need to figure it out all at once. He’s given himself a month to ease into the transition. He’s rented a house in the lakeside town where some of his friends live. The house isn’t much, but he plans to take good care of it for the widow he’s renting from. Whenever he’s imagined how his new life might look, the picture has never included a woman. He’s always thought of retirement as riding off into the sunset … alone. Nina thought the sun had set on her life a couple of years ago when her husband died, leaving her with a pile of debt and a broken heart. She moved away from the lake for a chance at a fresh start. She even went on a date for the first time. But what she’d hoped might be a bright new beginning is overshadowed when both her safety and her job are threatened. It’s time for her to go home to Summer Lake—the only trouble is, she just rented out her house. Manny thinks he’s renting from some old lady. Nina thinks her tenant is some old guy who’s retiring. Neither of them expects to find an intruder in the kitchen in the middle of the night, but when they do … You’ll have to pick up your copy of this heartwarming romance today to see if these two can overcome what lurks in the shadows and ride off into the sunset together.

The Metamorphosis & Other Tales is a collection of six fictional stories that includes The Metamorphosis, The Magic Carpet and The Groovy Wallpaper, Butterfly, The Stranger, Customer Disservice and The Boston Stranger. Interweaving postmodernist narrative forms of intertextuality with realistic fiction, Dahlvrlegg weaves a sumptuously rich tapestry of life contained within stories of the outsider, many of which might draw comparisons with the modernism of Kafka and Camus, though she undoubtedly still retains her definitely distinct artistic stylistic imprint.
