  • Hello Paul, I love your web site idea of helping young authors, I don't mind sharing the name Raw Ink with you if you don't. As Mister Clemens found Mark Twain more fitting, I selected Raw Ink as a pen name in 2007 after copyright of my novel 'The Masonic Prophecy', see Scribd.com, Raw Ink. I encourage all students and young authors to keep writing. Signed Raw Ink
