When I started the journey of becoming an author, I had many questions and no place to find the answers. Now, after writing many books and learning a great deal, I decided to help others avoid and overcome the stumbling blocks. For this, I’ve been posting on Quora for the past several months to help people with their writing questions. With over 100 answers, I feel it is important this information gets out to the writers who take writing seriously. I’ll be compiling the manuscript and working on polishing it for publication. Yes, I will author a book on how to create and publish your manuscript. Keep your browser pointed to this site and keep reading for more information and updates.

But I need your help, and I’m willing to give you something for it!

I’m looking for a catchy title, something to draw the eye. The work is for people looking at getting help with publishing their manuscript either traditionally or self-published. If you figure one out, please let me know and if I pick it, you’ll get a free copy of the book once it is published.

You can see some of the (unedited) questions on the Quora feed of the website. Take the time to like the answers and share them on your social media. And don’t forget to join my monthly “No-Spam” newsletter!

Douglas Owen Presents Broken World – Family


The second book of Broken World, Family, is now in the editing stages. The novel should be ready for release around November of this year.

The book is a first person, present tense novel I authored during NaNoWriMo 2017. It centres around the life of IT specialist Steve and the girl he fell in love with as the world fell apart. Taking place mainly in Muscleman’s Lake, Ontario, action also takes place in Uxbridge and Stouffville. Can they survive? What troubles lay ahead? You, the reader, will fall in love with this novel the same way I enjoyed writing it. Wicked Tales published this work.

You can purchase the first novel, The Hordes, through Amazon (free for KU subscribers) or order it from your local bookstore.

Here’s the best review an author can hope for:
