These four writer’s guides offer invaluable tips and advice for both aspiring and established authors in all genres.

What they’re saying about The Writer’s Guides.

“Writing for children is a marathon, not a sprint. Great quote from the book that is oh so true! The Children’s Writer’s Guide is written with every writer in mind. It won’t matter if you are beginning your career or if you have some years under your belt.”

“The Children’s Writer’s Guide 2 offers some good advice that would enable any writer to improve their craft. It’s certainly worth looking at if you want to write books for children. Simon Rose is a very experienced writer, with a wealth of knowledge. The answers to your writing questions may just lie in this book. Check it out!”

“This little gem covers everything from how the character moves across time frames, to advice on researching and a whole lot more. It is certainly worth reading, even if time travel is not your thing. The Time Traveler’s Guide is a great resource for any writer wanting to improve their craft.”

“In his book, The Working Writer’s Guide, Simon takes the reader/writer through many possible means of making money and making a career out of writing …A great resource for beginning and established writers.”

The Shadowzone Series Box Set by Simon Rose https://www.amazon.com/dp/B07HCVDQQQ/ref=cm_sw_r_tw_dp_U_x_bcUNBbYPQPF3Z … via @amazon

The Shadowzone Series of science fiction and fantasy novels involves the discovery of a grim dystopian version of Earth ruled by a totalitarian dictatorship, the threat of a deadly virus, and a race against time to save the lives of millions.

What they're saying about the Shadowzone Series

"Shadowzone is the first book in a series and I guarantee you will be racing towards the second. An excellent read!"

"Packed with non-stop action and cliff hangers, Rose does an excellent job at leaving the reader wanting more."

"Into the Web is the second book in the Shadowzone series. Like the first it is action packed and will leave the reader wanting more."

"Black Dawn is the third book in the ShadowZone series and it lives up to the previous two. Once again Simon Rose carries interesting characters through an action packed story. Readers will love this instalment as much as the two earlier books."
