Jim Woods published more than 400 articles in Outdoor Life, Popular Mechanics, Petersen's Hunting, Guns & Ammo, Shooting Times, Guns, Southern Outdoors,Western Outdoors, Gun Digest,
and other national periodicals; and contributed to various anthologies. He was a novelist and short-story author, and when not writing for himself, edited other authors' novels and nonfiction book-length works under private arrangement. He conducted writing-technique workshops for authors' groups and writing conferences.
Jim worked as Editor, Editorial Director and Managing Editor for (then) Petersen Publishing Company, Los Angeles, and as field Editor with (then) Publishers Development Corporation, San Diego. He worked as an engineering writer-editor in the aerospace/defense industry, and served, honorably, with the U.S. Navy, four years.
He was actively included in the Safari Club International (SCI) Professional Outdoor Writers Registry (POWR). His past professional associations included membership in Outdoor Writers Association of America (OWAA) and American Society of Journalists and Authors (ASJA).
He is listed in WHO'S WHO IN AMERICA 58th Edition,
English usage and grammar textbooks, at least those volumes when in paper print, are so big, so heavy…so complete. Students toting books and laptops in backpacks need relief, just as home authors can use more space on their reference bookshelves. So, You Want To Be an Author? takes up little space and weight but most importantly provides immediate answers to questions about grammar, spelling, punctuation and writing style. No searching through voluminous chapters in textbooks or scrolling incessant computer files. Pick a subject and go right to it for realistic examples of literary usage drawn from the author’s more than four decades working both sides of the editorial desk. Let his experience as magazine Editor, Managing Editor, Editorial director; independent book editor; and his four hundred articles and thirteen books as a fellow author, be your compact and shortcut guide along the path to literary success.
