I’ve decided to tackle the 48 Laws of Power by Robert Green as a set of prompts. I’d never heard of them until some one posted a random law in their Tumblr feed. The plan is to post one of these Law prompted pieces a week on Thursdays.


Law 7: Get Others to Do the Work for You


this book is dedicated to

my editor Ruthie Daniels whose suggestions guided me each step of the way

my copy editor Justin Taylor who found mistakes I didn’t think anyone could make

my friend Allie French who suggested the plot for me

Gus Koholajak the bartender at F.U.Up  for the names of my lead characters

Broken Wrists: my writers group for helping guide the plot to keep it moving

my friend Kaleb McLean who transcribed my written notes and also put them in order

my next door neighbour Diane Simms who transcribed my voice capture dictations and fitted them into Kaleb’s sequence

the comedy improv class that helped me discover dialogue for the crucial scenes

David Jeffers who did the legal research for me

Deborah Clarke who provided much of the medical information

of course I can’t neglect my partner Stan Kidjo who cooked cleaned and encouraged when I felt people weren’t getting back to me fast enough

finally you my readers because I wrote this book just for you


Like my pictures? I post lots on Tumblr
