Have a dream of being an author? Frustrated with banging your head against the publishing wall? (Let's face it...why else would you be reading this?) Don't worry. You are by no means alone! Success in publishing is equal parts skill, determination, knowledge, and pure, dumb luck. If you have the drive, and you have the skill, but you're missing that little bit of insight into the industry, this book might just be the edge you're looking for. (For the're on your own.) Crack the cover to learn more about effective dialogue, the difference between the major publishers and small presses, self-promoting, naming characters, avoiding procrastination...and so many other demons that haunt the aspiring author. The Literary Handyman also includes a series of writing exercises tailored toward helping you to apply the information gained in the book.
