This week on the Writer's Detective Bureau, Being Held Without Charges, Stalking and Desk Pops. I'm Adam Richardson, and this is the Writer's Detective Bureau. Welcome to episode number 55 of the Writer's Detective Bureau, the podcast dedicated to helping authors and screenwriters write professional-quality, crime-related fiction. This week, I'd like to thank Gold Shield patrons, Debra Dunbar from debradunbar.com, C.C. Jameson of ccjameson.com, Larry Keeton, Vicki Tharp of vickitharp.com, Dharma Kelleher of dharmakelleher.com,Chrysann, Jimmy Cowe of Crimibox, and Larry Darter for their support, along with all of my long-time Coffee Club patrons for their support month after month. You can find links to all of the writers supporting this episode in the show notes at writersdetective.com/55, and to learn about setting up your own Patreon account for your author business, visit writersdetective.com/Patreon, P-A-T-R-E-O-N.
I hope you've all had a great week. I just realized I failed to congratulate the winners of the Writer's Detective Bureau one year anniversary giveaway last week, so congratulations to Elias Barnes, Jennifer Blake, Daniel Miller, Dan Petrosini, who all won Writer's Detective logo coffee mugs and one-on-one story consultations with yours truly. Then also, huge congratulations to Amanda Feyerbend who won all of that, plus a full license for Scrivener writing software. I hope you enjoy writing with Scrivener, Amanda. There is a bit of a learning curve, but oh my goodness, once you get the hang of it, you won't want to write in an any other word processing software.
I wish I could write my police reports in Scrivener. I just find it frustrating when I have to write in anything else. If you would like to check out Scrivener for free for 30 days, and that's like 30 days of actually sitting down to write, opening the software, not 30 days on a calendar, because Literature & Latte, the company that makes it really understands how we work as writers, but you get your free 30-day trial by going to writersdetectivebureau.com/Scrivener, and that's spelled S-C-R-I-V-E-N-E-R. Scrivener is available for Windows, Mac, and even iOS, which I use way more often than I ever thought I would, working on my iPhone and on my iPad, so yeah, check it out. Congrats again, Amanda, Elias, Jennifer, Daniel and Dan, and thank you so much for listening to the podcast over the last year.
I appreciate you so much. This week, I didn't get any new questions for the podcast, so I will see you guys next week. Thanks ... No, I'm just kidding. I picked a few questions that popped up in the Writer's Detective Q&A Facebook group for this week's content... Continue reading...
