About SQ

This web site is dedicated to non-fiction books. 2Write is the mechanics of writing and some of the howI will be adding post every week about audience, genres and many other subjects.

Check my profile on FaceBook or LinkedIn & look for Herman McElfresh. On FB look for my WoW words. Find them posted daily with a weekly summary on JR’s Writers Wall.

The WoW words on FaceBook are different for each week. We take a word and get to know all we can about it. On Monday, we review it, on Tuesday, we define it, on Wednesday, we look see how it works, on Thursday, we look at how it impacts our results and on Friday, we look at the word’s influence on our relationships.

The Why 

I am doing this because for more than ten years as a non-fiction writer, author of two books and 400 plus articles my experiences need to be shared with upcoming, aspiring authors. It is the wise writer that learns from the mistakes of his peers and succeeds. My job is to help guide you to success as a writer without spending thousands of dollars. Over the past ten years, I have spent more than fifty thousand dollars to learn writing, promotion and the changing scene of the publishing industry. Do not do that.
