If you read the reviews for both Hacksaw and The Resqueth Revolution, you'll find they are full of complimentary remarks about the cinematic action scenes. Mark says he thoroughly enjoys writing over-the-top action, but his scenes would be less believable if not for the sharp eye of editors like L. J. Sellers who never allow the body count to exceed the number of combatants.
Because of the response to the action scenes, Mark Phillips has been asked to speak on the topic of writing action and has gathered his thoughts on action and violence into a series of guest posts for this tour. Mark says there are many different schools of thought on the topics. His articles describe his unique perpsective. Read part 1 of "How to Write Exciting Action Scenes" today at Write First, Clean Later.
The tour continues tomorrow with an interview from Katy Hines at Walking on Water.
