Four Writers. Four Methods. One Twisted Novel.

The Method Writers

by Rogues Gallery Writers, (Bridget Callaghan, Michael Ray King, Nancy Quatrano, and Jeff Swesky)
When four eager writers adopt the "method acting" approach to add realism to their individual writing projects, their mundane lives transform into the absurd. Each writer begins an adventure that previously could've only been created with their keyboards. Their journeys take exciting, bizarre, and dangerous, if not criminal, turns. The roads home appear bleak, so they turn to each other to help bring them back. Four writers. Four methods. One twisted novel. This group novel was dreamed up and written by Bridget Callaghan, Michael Ray King, Nancy Quatrano, and Jeff Swesky - the Rogues Gallery Writers. Dreamer Publications, LLC
