Free on Kindle: The Journey (Book 2 of the Herbert West Series)

Free for a limited time. Grab it while you can…

Audrey Driscoll's Blog

Islands of the Gulf Volume 1, THE JOURNEY is available for free via a special promotion until end of day Sunday, April 29th.

Here’s an opportunity for those who’ve read Book 1 of the series, The Friendship of Mortals, to find out what happens to Herbert West after his departure from Arkham.



Once, he was Herbert West, superlative surgeon and revivifier of the dead. Now he’s lost his reputation, his country and his name. Rebuilding his life as a country doctor on Bellefleur Island, he struggles with doubts, emotional entanglements and terrible memories of the Great War. Above all, he must forge a new relationship with his old adversary – death – and negotiate with a new one – love.

I’m curious to see which of the existing reviews readers will agree with.

The Benefits of Dictation

As someone that struggles with typing, dictation is a huge part of my writing process. PH Solomon gives us his views along with some useful tips…

Story Empire

Hello Story Empire readers! I’d like to fly – at least when it comes to writing – rather than plodding along. There’s one tool I now use to do just that: Dragon Naturally Speaking.

Good thing you don’t have to train this dragon to dictate well.

When it comes to writing a book, there is a faster way without a huge expense which also feels like flying. In my last post, I described how I was working to clear my own logjam with available time and one of those changes was to spend a little money to address my constricted writing time. I purchased Dragon Naturally Speaking and set out to dictate so I could produce more words per hour than typing. To dictate well, it requires training Dragon – which sounds like the title of a couple of movies.

Training a Dragon is simple, especially when compared to the movie…
