The advance copies for a book I co-edited (along with WD Executive Editor Kelly Nickell) have arrived, and look fantastic.
The book is The Fire In Fiction: Passion, Purpose, and Techniques to Make Your Novel Great by well-known literary agent Donald Maass. This is one of those great books that you’ll want to read cover to cover and then keep on your writing bookshelf for continued reference.
I’ve attended a writing workshop by Don, and it was really great. He’s very good at delivering really inspirational, but also accessible advice. The book itself uses passages from popular novels in a wide range of genres to show writers how to get the passion that they feel in imagining their story onto the page.
