I recently posted another chapter in my anthology on great mystery and thriller authors and their struggles to get published the first time. This time, I wrote about novelist David Morrell, author of First Blood (think Rambo). Book Trib picked it up this past week. This is another inside peek at how today’s famous writers got their start. David is the fourth in the series. I’ve also profiled Lee Child, Michael Connelly and Steve Berry. And there’s a lot more to come.
Each has spent time with me explaining their story and how they first got published. Writers who are still struggling to find an agent or publisher, may want to read about the struggles of some of today’s most popular thriller writers.
My recent David Morrell piece outlines his journey from “Route 66” to “Rambo.”
Some of the writers I’ve covered struggled for years, while others got lucky early. Maybe you will learn something from their stories that could help you as a writer who wishes to get published.
