The Excellent Writer

The Excellent WriterMany writers shy away from the words excellence in writing.

One of the main reasons for this is that writers lack self-confidence.

They continuously second-guess themselves and they are always negative about their abilities as writers, regardless of where they are in their writing career.

In this book, author Irene S. Roth examines thirty habits that, if learned, can (over time) turn every writer into an excellent writer.

Then writers can hold their heads up high and know that they are excellent.

There will be no more need to second guess themselves and to feel inadequate.

This is a recipe for excellence.

Unconventional Love Affair

unconventional love affairAccording to WebMD, one-third of women ages 40 to 69 are dating men 10 or more years younger. That said, when it comes to successful and long lasting relationships, should age difference really matter to make you happy?

Unconventional Love Affair, a humorous romance novel by author Robert Miller, tells the story of an army veteran returning from Iraq who falls in love with an older woman and explores the unusual dilemmas they find themselves in. Partly depicting Miller’s own life and military experiences, the novel gives readers insight on veterans returning to college, age difference in relationships and how to deal with unexpected life style changes.

“The novel also opens discussion to stereotypes surrounding veterans with post-traumatic stress disorder and living normal lives after serving in the military,” Miller said.

Miller received his Bachelor’s Degree from California State University in Fullerton, California and his Master’s Degree from Pepperdine University. Having served in the U.S. Marine Corps, Miller writes Unconventional Love Affair from his military and life experiences.

robertmillerR. H. Miller is a retired widower living in Nevada.

Prior to retirement, he served in the United States Marine Corps and later was a middle manager in a large corporation.

Life experiences provided much of the fiction materials for his new book, Unconventional Love Affair.

In addition, many events in the lives of family members and friends are fictionally depicted.

Miller’s intention in writing the book was to provide the reader with an interesting and, at times, humorous understanding of problems and dilemmas individuals encounter in unusual relationships.
