About the authors
Top reviews from the United States
There was a problem filtering reviews right now. Please try again later.
Most of this applies to fiction and nonfiction, but they also have a nonfiction section that goes over things specific to nonfic
My top two takeaways:
1. Every scene should change valence (positive/negative)
If the scene starts positive (hero finds a clue), it should end negative (hero trapped by bad guys)
Or negative --> positive
Also, positive/double positive or negative/double negative.
And no, you can't start with a double, Mr/Ms Smartypants
2. Use a style sheet in your work, so when the editor adapts it to their style sheet, it's easy for him/her to make global changes
Also, Shunn Proper Manuscript Format is gold
A great resource. And I say that as someone who has been a journalist, editor, and editor in chief for the past twenty years.
Disclaimer: I'm in the Horror Writers Association, and have met Lee and Angela at conferences. But I spent my own money to buy this book, and they have no idea this review is being posted :D
