I’m taking a moment away from my regular posts of writing tips to share with you a book for writers written by a friend of mine. Even if he wasn’t a friend, I would recommend this quick resource for writers. Novel Writing Made Simple by Gordon A. Kessler is a book you should buy, read, use, and keep handy.
Much like my basic writing tips, it takes a writer through almost everything related to the how-to of writing. Sections include: The Craft with Story, Storytelling and Writing, Editing, Revising and Rewriting, The Business, Memoir Writing, Corrections and Comments, Querying Agents and Editors, ISBNs, Resources and References, and Terms and Definitions.
Novel Writing Made Simple is available at Amazon at http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/0578051656/ref=cm_cr_rev_prod_img and at Barnes and Noble.com at http://search.barnesandnoble.com/Novel-Writing-Made-Simple/Gordon-A-Kessler/e/9780578051659/?itm=1&USRI=Novel+Writing+Made+Simple.
