to Bob Rich's writing showcase

News of this site

   The winner of the my third FREE BOOK EDIT CONTEST is Keith Manos, with his YA novel, W is for Wrestling. I am in the process of interviewing him. Our conversation will appear at Bobbing Around.

   The LiFE Award: Literature For Environment has two new recipients: The Forest Giant and Beware!>, both written by Jennifer Poulter, who is as enthusiastic about environmental books for kids as I am.

   My next book is From Depression to Contentment: A self-therapy guide. Please check its prepublication page, where you can read the first chapter and several advance reviews.

   With the release of Hit and Run, I have had the honour and pleasure of appearing as guest author on many sites. Current and recent ones are listed at my blog.

   Please read what a recent editing client has to say about my work.

   My 17th book, Hit and Run, has been published, after a long delay. Please have a look.

   Talented YA author Michael Thal has a list of the 5 best books he's reviewed in a year. For 2017, he has chosen two of my books: Guardian Angel as his favourite, and Anikó: The stranger who loved me as the second.

   Delighted to let you know, the LiFE Award: Literature for Environment now has its 41st recipient Sublime Planet, a book of poetry by Carolyn Howard-Johnson and Magdalena Ball. This is the 5th award in the last few months. Please support authors whose writing cherishes our little planet.

   Last year, I spent months on editing an excellent book on an economic philosophy that has the potential to save humanity from the global economic system: the "Sufficiency Economy Philosophy" of the just-deceased Thai king. The book's editors wrote a testimonial for my services.

   Grab a free book, You too can live in contentment.
