About The Author...

indie author

Florence Osmund


After a successful career in the corporate world, I retired to write novels in the literary fiction genre. I like to craft stories that are character-based and challenge readers to survey their own values.

My only non-fiction book "How to Write, Publish, and Promote a Novel" is dedicated to helping new authors. Here I offer advice I wish I had received before I started writing my first book. I talk about—

• where to begin
• how to promote your book even before it’s written
• building an author platform
• how to spot a scam
• working with editors

I include topics that will help new authors hone their writing techniques such as—

• developing fully fledged characters
• using back story effectively
• creating dynamic scenes
• active versus passive voice
• the ‘show, don’t tell’ concept
• point of view

At the end of each chapter are included many links to other websites that will help authors become better at their craft.

I am a book reviewer/assessor for several organizations and currently live on a small, tranquil lake in northern Illinois where I continue to write.
