On Editing

March 9, 2012

I have a piece on The Rap Sheet in which I describe the aims and structure of Conversations with James Ellroy, as well as discuss what went in  to putting the book together. Lots of people, myself included, want to write a novel; rather less I suspect want to edit an anthology. But if you are a writer or researcher interested in the process, or just a fan of James Ellroy, I hope you will find the piece interesting. You can it read it here.

I’ve been blogging a lot about James Ellroy recently. This has been to publicise Conversations with James Ellroy which I enjoyed writing about. However, next week I’m going to return to blogging about other crime fiction topics.

      Thanks David. I will write a post about this in the next week or two. By the way, thanks for recommending me to Lae. I’m hoping to write a piece for her blog about James Ellroy’s novel ‘Killer on the Road’.

      Best wishes,

        You have one of my favorite blogs so it was an easy choice. Lae seems keen and I thought that it would be an excellent chance for you to plug your book. Us writers have to stick together.
