As a lot of you coming to this blog site for the first time will already know, I am K. R. Lane, the writer of the horror thriller novels: “The Diary Of Jane,” “Whispers In the Night,” and the upcoming novel, “The Paranormal Project.”
Here is what you don’t know. I am also an everyday worker, just like most of you. I work as a restaurant server In Niagara Falls, mostly working the midnight shift. I think the single biggest question I have been asked is, how can you do what you do? The truth is, there is no simple answer. And the reason I have started this blog is I want to help other writers out there. Not just the ones who are trying to be the next Stephen King, Anne Rice, Lee Harper, but the ones who also don’t even know where to start. And I know what you’re probably thinking. “I have read a million, ‘how to write books,’ a million, ‘this is how I did it,’ books, and a million blogs on the same subject. I know, because I have, and I know something else. Most of them are fucking useless. The only one I have read with useful information in it at all is, ‘ON WRITING: A MEMOIR TO THE CRAFT- Stephen King.’ I highly recommend that you guys check it out.
I told myself if I was going to do something like this, I wanted it to be useful, honest and uncensored. Because of this, there will be a few times where what I put stuff on here that may offend or upset a few people, especially new writers. Trust me, I have been where you are, and this is not my intention. This world can be a nasty fucking place at times, and it doesn’t always work the way that you want it to, but truthfully, you already knew that. I am telling you this so you know what to expect, so that it’s not a punch in the face when it happens. Because I, like you, am not Stephen King. I am not Anne Rice. And I am certainly not Lee Harper. I am K. R. Lane, I am still trying to get my novels out there and reach as many readers as I can, admittedly, these blogs are a way of doing that. With these blogs, I not only want to tell you what I write, but also how I write. What I have found works and what doesn’t. If there is a way I have found to do something, even if it hasn’t worked for me, I want to tell you what that is, because you’re not me. It might work for you. And I want to share the story behind the stories with you. These will not be edited. And unless it’s someone’s name who doesn’t wish to be mentioned, these will not be censored. These will be the truth, and nothing but.
