Writing For Serial Killers.

Mass murderers are absolutely perfect for self-published authors or anyone looking for a good dog story.

“I’m still trying to turn my amazing dream into a novel. Will publishers accept point form?”

Being on Amazon isn’t so much a literary goal as a personal one, much the way serial killers want attention more than bloodlust.

Of course, we have a hard time understanding how polite conversation with a dog can turn to murder, but murder, for Dahmer, Gacy and Berkowitz, was never the objective.

Saying, “I’d rather not waste my time on agents and publishing houses,” is eerily similar to serial killers saying, “I’d rather not waste time making friends.”

Stick to something action-packed, possibly with lots of foreign locations. Serial killers don’t get out much.

I did a poor imitation of Don Draper for 40 years before writing my first novel. I'm currently in the final stages of a children's book. Lucky me.
