Things happen. Things so horrid the bravest mind cowers, burying the memories deep. They only crawl out in the weakest hours, dragging one back, covered in cold sweat, unheard screams echoing.

I would like to join but have no idea what Skype is, have never used it, and generally don't like and don't use social media.

Re: Best writing software for my odd book? Help appreciated

There is really no such thing as "book writing software." There are literally hundreds of books online that will help you format your book and tell you how to propose it to a publisher. Do some research and I can guarantee you'll find all sorts of good stuff. There is one website that has a vast lib...
