The Benefits of Writing a Terrible First Novel

Originally posted on Words of Margaux:

My Books & Publishing Company

Most novels and works of fiction will generally be under the abbreviated name, Cliff Harrison, while most nonfiction works are usually penned under the full legal name, Clifford G. Harrison. It just gives readers an easy guide to my writing. This is not usually true of my blogs and social pages which are almost always under Cliff Harrison. There may be some variation of this, especially if a blog idea spins off as a book. Cliff Harrison’s World of Quotes is under the abbreviated name, book projects likewise. Soon my books will begin being released under the Sunrise Mountain Publishing imprint. My BOOKS will be available at the following websites:

COMING SOON: ~The Gerry Spence Story~

~The Gerry Spence Story will soon be open to the public for viewing. The currently private story can be found in the "Pages" section found at the top left of the gray section of this blog when it is opened to the public. It will have a little bit of writing and commentary by me about one of my greatest mentors and most respected attorney in America.

Spence is America's greatest trial lawyers, bar none. There will be many video, similar to the story-videos in the other pages found in the listing that present an insider's look at the charismatic couple of Mr. and Mrs. Gerry Spence.

The accompanying website links and videos contribute to a broader story of one of my most respected professionals. Gerry's charming wife, Imaging, is a magnificent designer and when you see the home she designed you'll understand why she has so much charm and imagination. ~

~~~~~~~~~~~~NOTICE~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

I'm currently focused on my book projects and will not be revisiting my websites, blogs, social pages or photo galleries for sometime (EXCEPT FOR RARE OCCASIONS) while I am completing these book manuscripts. Thank you ever so much for your support. I hope to reconnect with all of you soon. You are all such a wonderful group and such a joy to share with. THANK YOU!
