Free on Amazon - 2036 The Final Resistance A novella around 110 pages, 2-3 hour read.

"America has become a fascist state, and there's only one way to save it.. . . "
goo.gl/vXZiGl

Check out a couple excerpts:

“There’s no other way,” he said. “We’ve gone over it countless times, and there’s nothing else we can do. We have thousands across the country. Thousands committed to this effort, and thousands more who aren’t sure but who might join, perhaps help behind the scenes or later on. An army. People like you. Like me. And, I assume, Regina?”
I was so filled with angst I could hardly listen. An army of people with the Power? To resist? To overthrow the Regime? They had thousands too. A real army. Weapons. Guns. Bombs. And we would destroy them? My mind filled with images of dead bodies scattered on the ground, in buildings, in the restaurant where I worked. The images I’d had years ago, when I fantasized of this very thing, flickered through my scattered thoughts. What was the plan? And the angst turned to anger. Rage. Fury, even, at the thought of finally destroying those who were slowly destroying us. . . .

If you're floundering with your first (or fifth) novel, check to see what kind of structure it has. That could be the key to getting you past writer's block, discouragement, and yet another rough draft never completed.

With plagiarism in the news these days, make sure you know what it is (if you don't already). It's a very bad thing. Not only is it stealing, it also makes you look like you can't write anything on your own (as in maybe you're not too bright or you're just too lazy).

Get the scoop on em dashes! Compare to en dashes and hyphens, too.
