Welcome to the third issue of Writer’s Wheel, the FREE online creative writing magazine from Compass Books. Ever wonder if your book could shoot from obscurity to bestseller even after it's been out for three years? That you will suddenly find your own words being spoken by a character on a major TV series, or Jay-Z wearing your book cover on the back of his jacket in his and Beyoncé's tour trailer video? Well that's what happened to Eugene Thacker and his book In the Dust of This Planet. Read about it on page 18. Also in this issue, bestselling author Judy Hall discusses a sense of place. Judy says that she chose Glastonbury for her workshop "because it is an incredible setting but even somewhere mundane can illuminate your story." Nicolas Corder author of Creating Convincing Characters discusses characterization in the second in his series of articles. And we have three short stories to choose from. There is so much more in this information packed issue.
