How do you invite the right readers to read past the first line of your story? How do you keep them interested in the story? And how do you make them feel like your narrative worlds are more real than reality itself? Join veteran ghostwriter DeAnna Knippling on a deep, analytical dive into the fundamental concepts of good fiction writing in the Writing Craft series. Not only is Writing Craft a handbook of well-known fiction techniques, but at its heart, it is a method to research and invent your own. Volume 1: Are You Ready to Publish? & Other Burning Questions What writer hasn't asked themselves how they will know when their story is ready to publish? Writing Craft Volume 1 shows writers how they can establish that answer for themselves, on legal, personal, and practical levels. It also includes key concepts on how to read and study fiction like a professional writer. These concepts introduce the reader to a new way of perceiving fiction, as a "magician" performing their wonderful craft, and not solely as a reader being carried away by it. And finally, Writing Craft Volume 1 addresses a number of issues that can derail writers moving from the beginner to the intermediate stages of writing, such as writing speed, time management, and giving value to one's work-even when one can only perceive its imperfections. If you're struggling to turn a gift for writing into a sustainable, repeatable practice that doesn't depend on mood or inspiration, Volume 1: Are You Ready to Publish? & Other Burning Questions provides a road map for clearing practical and creative blockages out of the way, while introducing skills that will be used throughout the series. If you're feeling like you can't write better because you're not writing much at all, Writing Craft Volume 1 is where to start.

An Autobiography: The Story of My Life and Work...

Booker T. Washington (1856-1915) was one of the most influential African-American leaders of the late 19th and early 20th centuries. Born a slave in Hale's Ford, Virginia, Washington moved to West Virginia after the Civil War, where he learned to read while working in a coal mine. After several years of part-time schooling, he enrolled full-time at the Hampton Institute, a secondary school for African Americans, and graduated in 1875. Washington spent the next six years teaching school in West Virginia and at Hampton before accepting an offer to start a brand new school in Tuskegee, Alabama. Washington founded what is today Tuskegee University in 1881 and spent the rest of his life making that institution financially viable and academically respected. First published in 1900, The Story of My Life and Work was ghostwritten for Washington by a young African American journalist named Edgar Webber. Webber wrote the book with minimal oversight from Washington, who was on a European tour when his autobiography was sent to the publisher in the summer of 1899. Washington's correspondence, which was later published in the 14-volume Booker T. Washington Papers, reveals that he was furious with Webber's numerous errors and casual tone when he saw the work in print; in the 1901 edition of his Story reproduced here, Washington corrected the most egregious errors; he also removed Webber's picture from the book and his name from the index. At least in part because he was dissatisfied with The Story of My Life and Work, Washington urged his publishers to sell the book to poor, predominantly African-American buyers - so that wealthier, more educated readers would not have a chance to condemn the work. The Story of My Life and Work was very popular and sold more than 75,000 copies in its first four years, but Washington was dissatisfied and selected a more accomplished ghostwriter for Up from Slavery (1901), his second attempt at an 1.

'The thing about hitting bottom is that, in the middle of it, sometimes you don't know if you're really hitting bottom or just bouncing off ledges on your way further down.' Charlie Teller is a ghostwriter of best-selling celebrity autobiographies, until an affair and a fraud destroy his marriage and career. He's given a rare chance to start over, but just as he begins, Charlie finds himself the only witness to a friend's murder and is drawn into the investigation. Now someone has Charlie in his sights, and Charlie doesn't know if it's Eddie Mahler, a wise-guy police detective, or Vincent, a laconic ex-Special Forces soldier, or Kenny McDonald, a once famous pop singer turned deranged coke dealer. And, as he uncovers the truth of his friend's life, Charlie is brought face to face with his own past, remembered through his association with the subjects of his books: an aging novelist, a rock musician, a film star . . . Set in the towns and back roads of Northern California wine country, Teller is a mystery and a surprising novel about the meaning of memoir and the stories we tell ourselves about who we are.

The Business Book Bible: Everything You Need to...

Brian Tracy said, 'This book gives you a proven strategy to write and sell an excellent book on any business subject you know and care about.' Todd Sattersten, co-author of 'The 100 Best Business Books of All Time,' said, 'No one tells you how hard it is to write a business book. Luckily, Derek's 'Bible' makes it easier-much easier.' Literary agents, publishers, Fortune 500 consultants-they've all had rave reviews for 'The Business Book Bible,' the only full-length, in-depth book on how to put together a great thought leadership book. There are plenty of writing guides out there for memoirs, general business communication, crime thrillers, or romance novels. But until now, there's never been anywhere would-be business authors could turn to for help. That's unfortunate because business books present a completely different set of challenges. For example: - How do you connect with your readers so they trust you and your advice? - How do you artfully point to your products and services without coming off like a late-night infomercial? ¿ - How do you keep your reader engaged throughout the book, especially if your material is--shall we say--less than thrilling?¿ No other writing guide can teach you what you need to know...and do you really want to learn the hard way? ¿With writing your book, you want to get it right the first time. Written by a business ghostwriter, 'The Business Book Bible' covers everything you need to know, from framing your authority to picking the perfect title, plus: - Figuring out how long your book should be - Winning the battle of writer's block - Nailing down your real reader (and what to do when they're different than your ideal client)¿ - Giving away the secret sauce - The unforgivable sin in writing - Looking like a pro (and not a rank amateur) - Acting like a publisher (even if you have one) ....and much, much more. You'll learn how to follow the same 5-step process the author uses to write and ghostwrite multiple books a year. You'll see how to keep your book focused and how to cut the unnecessary material. You'll discover multiple methods of getting your ideas out of your head--and most of them don't even involve writing! John Spence, voted one of the top 100 business thought leaders in America, said, 'As the author of five business books, I sure wish I had read this one earlier in my career. It's would've saved me a lot of time, headache, stress, and money.' Here's a startling example of just one of the great tips and tricks contained in the book: you don't start writing a book by actually writing the book. One of the biggest mistakes first-time authors make is sitting down at their computer, expecting to start with the first word of chapter one, and then write all the way through to 'The End.' If only it were that easy! Amateurs try to get it perfect right from the start. The pros know that writing is a process. You start by getting all your ideas out of head and onto paper first. You'll have a jumbled mess that looks like a new jigsaw puzzle. You have to sift and sort through it to find the material worth using. Then and only then can you start piecing the puzzle together. It's a painstaking, time-consuming process-but one that's well worth it. Peter Economy, 'The Management Guy' at Inc. said, 'Derek Lewis's 'The Business Book Bible' is by far the most comprehensive book I have ever seen on the nuts and bolts of writing a business book. If you're planning to write a business book, then you would do well to read this book first.' Start writing your book by reading this one!

Before You Write Your Book: Ask Yourself These ...
1,00 CHF *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

If you are about to write your first book, you may not know what you don't know. To find out, begin by asking questions-the right questions. In this little e-book, you will find 8 important questions you should ask yourself Before You Write Your Book: 1. Where can I find help? (Besides my friends and family?) If you are starting from scratch, there are five places to turn for assistance-an online course, a ghostwriter, a book coach, a good editor, or books on how to write a book. 2. What resources are available? (And where can I find them?) There are hundreds of resources online-authors' websites and blogs; professional associations; print, digital, and audiobooks; online or face-to-face courses; writers' magazines; and social media groups. 3. What should I know before I begin? (And how do I find the answers?) You should know why you want to write your book, what's holding you back, and what you need to make it happen. 4. What is my central idea? (And how do I know if it's a good one?) If someone asks you what your book is about, can you tell him in a single sentence? That is your central idea. 5. Who is my ideal reader? (And where do I find this person?) Your book is not for everyone; it is for a particular kind of reader you can describe and visualize it as you write. 6. What are the competitive titles? (How is my book different or better?) You may think your book is the best one out there on your subject, but you can't be sure if you haven't checked out the competition. 7. What are my publishing options? (Which one should I choose?) Between the big five publishing houses and a quick-copy shop, there is a range of publishing options to choose from. 8. How do I market my book? (Where should I start?) Marketing is knowing what you are trying to achieve, three ways to do it, and the concrete actions you are going to take.
