My name is Mike Pettit, Author,Writer, Novelist, Scribe, whatever. My alter egos, John Locke, Jack Marsh, Damian Wolf, Kimo Kanoa, and their pals live in my head 24/7, non-stop. They are like tracer rounds ricocheting around my brain. I know there are other like me out in the cyber world going though the same thing.

This is the go-to joint for everything suspense and mystery, a stake-out for writers that want to share their thoughts. Come on in, drop anchor, grab a cup of joe (or latte), and let's talk murder...or writing about it.

THE THRILL OF WRITING THRILLERS

The insanity  required to write about murder and crime on a daily basis takes it's toll on normal people. I, a thriller writer of five novels filled with murder, killing, action sequences that would make Bruce Willis cringe, find it most comforting. At the end of the day, I sleep like a ....dead man? My fifth book, JUNGLE RULES, will hit the Ethernet book stands in about ten days. It's very exciting to see one of my novels on amazon, B&N, and about two hundred other sites....  and people actually buy them....It's a miracle. BUT, I calculated up the hours spent, the frustration level, the act of killing so many people, the editing......gets me way less than minimum wage. I wonder if I could apply somewhere for a Fed hand out?
AND Face Book is driving me nuts. I get caught up in some conversation that's going no where and the next thing I know, Ive missed my word count for the day.
I try and do at least two thousand words per day. What do normal writers do? More? Less? I'm curious.
