Confessions Of A Professional Traveler: Save Thousands Using Secret Travel Tips

by Steve Stewart

Former Stone Temple Pilots personal manager, Steve Stewart, reveals little known travel tactics picked up over more than 20 years of world travels. Many of these travel tips have never been made public, and can save you and your family thousands of dollars over just a few trips.

His prior experience as a ticketing agent for a major US airline provides additional and unique insight on the inner-workings of reservations systems and the best way to use them to your advantage.

Whether you use an agent or book your own travel, the information in this book is typically outside the typical travel agent’s scope of knowledge and can save you both time and money booking airfares, hotels and rental cars.

These secret travel tactics can benefit everyone from the hardcore road warrior to the family traveling on vacation, and can serve to make your travel experience both more comfortable and less expensive. The savings from just one of these re-usable and sustainable travel tips will pay for the cost of this book many times over.

This full length novel grew out of the Five Star short story, “Blackbird: A Young Boy Meets the Devil For the First Time.”

It follows the little boy from that first meeting with the devil, all the way through his life… until the surprise end.

Meet “Bill the Blackbird” and “Boogie McCain” and a host of other interesting characters…

As the devil never gives up in trying to get Boogie to sign away his soul… in return for fame and fortune…

and a few other things as well!

One reviewer called “Blackbird…” A must-read treasure, December 24, 2012

Amazon Verified Purchase(What’s this?)

This review is from: Blackbird: A Boy Meets The Devil For the First Time (Kindle Edition)

I’ve been reading about 70 years and Blackbird is one of those rare nuggets of pure gold in a whole mountain of clay . It plays out like the blues, full of riffs and bass and gravel that spin themselves into a mirror of soul not ashamed to get down and dirty and come up dragging us into a light we refused to open our eyes to before. Don’t let the stomp and shuffle and guffaws fool you into thinking it’s not about you, you ain’t gonna get off that easy. I was in Gadsden Alabama for about three months in 1958, and he’s not telling any lies. It was my first experience with deep southern segregationist views. A great morality tale told by a masterful and powerful writer about a very unique character.

Write Mystery

Three x 12 Point Plans to Writing Mystery NOVELS

Three Variations of the Hero’s Journey for the mystery writer.

One of the best ever explanations of plotting a successful novel was outlined in A Practical Guide to Joseph Cambell’s “The Hero with a Thousand Faces”

Here are three variations of this successful and classic plot to suit the mystery writer. Compiled by Rose Blume

Ë?Ë?Ë? “There are only two or three human stories, and they go on repeating themselves as fiercely as if they had never happened before.”

The above was stated by Willa Sibert Cather the American author who achieved recognition for her novels of frontier life on the Great Plains, in works such as “O Pioneers!”, “My Ántonia”, and “The Song of the Lark”.

In this eBook, Rose Blume has compiled the basic “Hero’s Journey” then shown how this can be used as a basis for three different types of mystery novels. Examples are given of great mystery novels that follow these plot lines. Any one of these three mystery plots could form a starting point for your short story or novel, and a basis for your initial rough plotting plan.

As you loosen up and begin the first draft allow your characters and imagination to free you from the confines of the plan and be creative. Individuality will develop as you write your first draft. If you find yourself waffling, or running off course then pull back to the plan you have chosen.

Ë?Ë?Ë? No Writers Block.

By beginning with a plan and having that known successful plan to fall back on you will never developed writer’s block.

Ë?Ë?Ë? Epic, Closed Crime and Open Mystery Basic Plot Examples.
