Great Free book for writers (and undeserved praise for me)

First of all, I would like to say that I actually asked the following author to do this so you aren’t allowed to be too hard on him. Unless you were planning on being hard on me, then by all means, take your rage out on him. 🙂 Please welcome the amazing Dean Orion to Readful Things. I read this book a few months ago, and it has become one of my writing bibles. Seriously, if you are an author or hopeful, you want this book!

This is my shameless plug for an author that deserves it

and also my admission

that I am his groupie. Really, I got the T-shirt to prove it.

Greetings to all my fellow Readful Things devotees!

My name is Dean Orion. After twenty-five years in the trenches of writing in the entertainment business, I recently wrote a book called “Live To Write Another Day, A Survival Guide for Screenwriters and Creative Storytellers.” The idea behind it was pretty straightforward. I simply set out to share my experiences and at the same time offer what I hope to be helpful advice and inspiration to my fellow writers.

*He is too nice and humble to say this but I’m not…find his book


The book has been out a couple months now and has received some very nice reviews, not the least of which came from our wonderful Ionia, who is now officially my new best friend.

And now she’s giving me the floor on her blog yet again, to plug a free promotion for my book that’s running on Amazon this week, May 29-31. I hereby proclaim her the patron saint of writers everywhere!

If you’d like to learn more about me or my book, please visit my website or my Amazon or Goodreads author page. (I’m sure Ionia has put a couple of easy to find links around here somewhere.) website:

I could go on of course, but in the interest of being a polite guest, I will leave it at that. If you’re a writer (or any type of artist who’s serious about the creative process), please download “Live To Write Another Day” while it’s free this week on Amazon. I’d love to hear your feedback and continue the conversation.

Write on!

  1. I keep telling you, you’re like a PSA for the reading world. Too bad I can’t download anything here from Amazon. Did that instructor droning away for a paycheck give you opportunity to get another expensive nap? Hopes for better instructors to you, and success for this author and his book…sounds like a decent sort.


      1. I can’t represent the sound of my laughter with the symbols available to me. No, do not mail him or any other paid drones to me. So strange…my computer was acting all funky trying to process my comment, and a message was coming in, which sometimes throws my antique laptop and shaky provider off…it was you replying to a comment that appeared to be not going through. You bring more amusement to this process than you intend.


  2. Hi Coyote — sounds like you may be out of the country. If you would like a copy of the book, please send me your email address. I’d be happy to send you a pdf.


  3. I don’t often do as I’m told, but this time I’ll trust you and have just downloaded it on your recommendation. Nice of you to promote Dean and his book here.


  4. Shameless…never, this is an excellent post for which you both deserve a great deal of credit for. Thank you for sharing and introducing Dean to those of us who don’t know him (like me) I truly appreciate it.


  5. Wow, Ionia, you know you’ve arrived when you have Ioniaisms. Lol. Thanks for sharing. I can’t wait to read it. Just read an article on Huff Post about him too.


  6. Every compliment, nice word, and praise is completely deserved Ionia! If anyone ever has anything mean to say to you they will have to deal with me!! And that won’t like me when I’m mad…think big and green!!! xoxo
