  1. Elizabeth – These are great links, as ever. I see a couple on writing a solid antagonist, which I sometimes think doesn’t get enough attention. Ooh, and a couple on showing, not telling, too – always useful!

  2. Elizabeth, this is off-topic, but some time ago you gave me the e-mail of the man who doe your formatting. I’m ready to have my book formatted and wanted to use him as his rate are reasonable, but I can’t find that info. Can you please send it to me at
