Breaking the Block

It’s a bit later in the year than planned, but Breaking the Block is finally out there.

What writer hasn’t felt the desolate emptiness of the white page, mocking, and remaining stubbornly blank? Summoning words to fill that page can, at times, be an effortless flight of creativity. At other times, it feels like mental constipation.

Writer’s block fills writers with dread because it feels impassable, something we just have to accept and wait for inspiration to strike. But we needn’t be passive victims of writer’s block. We can strike back with a combination of self-awareness and a suitable kit of tools. Breaking the Block provides a collection of approaches to keep the words flowing.

It’s available for $0.99 in all the main e-book formats and will shortly be out on all the major platforms (Kindle, Nook, Kobo, iBooks)

For the month of December, readers of this blog can also download it for free in any format from the Smashwords site, using coupon code JF47K


  1. Hi Ian - congratulations on this little gem, which I'm sure will be so useful to many aspiring authors.

    I'm now catching up after my break ... hope you get lots of sales here ... cheers Hilary

  2. Congrats on the new book! I hope you sell a bazillion copies, although it doesn't sound like you're publishing it as a big money-making effort. It sounds more like a gift to other writers. Then again, if ya sell a bazillion... :)

  3. Congrats! A great tool for writers! May you find heaps of success with it.

  4. Well done getting another book out there Ian. I've never suffered from writer's block and hope that lasts. Many do and hope they find your book!

    Time to make Toblerone Cheesecake again!

  5. Susan, Lynda, Denise, the idea is to help other writers through difficult times. I hope at least a few pick it up.


I love comments. Please feel free to join in the discussion.

I also try to respond to comments. I usually do so during the early evening (Pacific time) which may be many hours away from now!

So if you leave a comment and return some time later and I haven't responded yet, please don't think I'm ignoring you. I'm not. Honest.
