beauty f words blogANOTHER interview?

Yes, yes… but this one’s different. Cathleen Townsend and I discuss some interesting writing philosophies, character development tips, and AWKWARD THINGS WRITERS HAVE TO DO TO GET THEIR INFORMATION.

This interview is a scream – in a good way.

2012 b2Best-Selling author and humorist Dan Alatorre turned his sights on fatherhood in “Savvy Stories,” and the results were hilarious. Since then, Dan has racked up a string of #1 Bestsellers in family humor, novels, illustrated children’s books and cookbooks, and has been published in 12 languages throughout 14 different countries. His romantic comedy Poggibonsi: an Italian misadventure, set in Tuscany, will be released in a few weeks.

Dan’s success is widespread and varied. In addition to being a best-selling author (he claims it was a slow week at Amazon when that happened) Dan has achieved President’s Circle with two different Fortune 500 companies.

    It’s a real gift we have as writers, not the money thing so much, but being able to reach out to people we wouldn’t otherwise even know.

    Thanks, Dan. 🙂
