Should you "pants" your next novel? In the exclusive e-book "Plot It, or Pants It?" Ray Rhamey advises on the pros and cons of tossing the outline and writing by the seat of your pants. You'll get perspectives from several best-selling authors—from Elmore Leonard to Stephen King—on their approach to organic writing, and learn how to successfully pants a first draft while avoiding pitfalls. Ray Rhamey is an author, freelance fiction editor, and designer of book covers, interiors, and e-books for indie authors and small publishers. He writes the internationally known blog, Flogging the Quill, on creating compelling fiction. His how-to book, Mastering the Craft of Compelling Storytelling, has gotten rave reviews from writers. Ray's background includes screenwriting and advertising. Readers call him a "genre-bending" writer—his The Vampire Kitty-cat Chronicles is a satirical paranormal adventure, Gundown is a speculative thriller, The Summer Boy is a coming-of-age mystery set in 1958, and Hiding Magic is a blend of science fiction and contemporary fantasy.
