Designing man: an architect who writes?

My purpose here is twofold: First, I’ll update you, in my Designing Man Blog, with industry news, my own evolving views, and reviews of the best books I’ve come across. In A Writer’s Journey, section,I’ll continue to evolve a free online resource on  the writing craft, the changing world of publishing and the new world of promotion in the internet age. As an architect who writes,  I’ll keep you informed about local literary events and writing groups, and offer full information about my books and short stories, both biography and mystery, on my monthly Designing Man newsletter and Pete’s Bookshop, an online store, with its frequent bonus offerings, discounts and bargains.

Please join me in my own writer’s journey. To make sure you don’t miss a single post or issue of Designing Man News, or new installment of A Writer’s Journey, please sign up in the sidebar or on my about-contact page.

Welcome, and good words to you!
