Greetings! Welcome to my little corner of the world.
My name is Matthew Dicks. I am a writer.
In the spring of 2008, under the guidance of my remarkable agent, Taryn Fagerness, I sold my first novel, Something Missing, to Broadway Books, an imprint of Doubleday, and thus made one of my childhood dreams come true.
Slated for publication in July of 2009, I thought that a blog like this would be a good opportunity to connect with readers and writers, in order to discuss the writing process, the publishing process, my experience in the world of literary agents and editors, and answer any questions that people may have about the book, my life as a reader and a writer, my latest projects, and anything else that my come to mind.
I’m currently working on my second novel as well as finishing the final editing and proofreading of Something Missing. In addition to fiction, I write poetry, essays and opinion pieces and have published in major newspapers and journals throughout the United States.
If you have a question or would like me to write on a specific topic, please feel free to email me or leave a comment in any of the coming posts.
I look forward to sharing my thoughts, my experiences, and my ideas with you!
