A sequel to a fifty-year-old book puts Hoagy on the scent of a long-cold murder case Few American novels are as beloved as Alma Glaze’s Revolutionary War epic, Oh, Shenandoah. Although Glaze died before she could write a sequel, she left behind an outline for one, along with instructions that it not be written until 50 years after her death. The deadline has passed, and the American public clamors for the long-promised Sweet Land of Liberty. Only one thing stands in its way: Glaze’s heirs. Her daughter, socialite Mavis Glaze, is writing the novel under guidance from her mother, who she claims has been appearing in her dreams. As Mavis’s writing spirals farther into madness, her brothers hire Stewart Hoag, a ghostwriter famous for dealing with troublesome celebrities. When he arrives at the family’s Virginia manor, he finds that Alma’s is not the only unsettled spirit. Blood was spilt for Oh, Shenandoah, and more will die before the sequel hits the best seller list. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Sean Runnette.

Now and then, a novel turns out to be prophetic - and no one is more surprised than the author. When I wrote Money Talks back in 2007, neither I nor anyone else imagined that the White House would soon be occupied by a man who bears such a striking and in fact uncanny resemblance to my villain, Robert Maxx. I wasn't trying to write a predictive dystopia; all I wanted to do was to tell an engaging story that would let me think my way into the mind of a real-estate mogul with a bullying manner, a head of hair flamboyant enough to match his ego, and a somewhat childish fixation to see his name on very tall buildings. I wanted to explore what drove that kind of man, what kind of neediness was behind his endless quest for power. And I wanted to see how an ordinary, decent fellow might keep his moral bearings while in the employ and thrall of such a person. My everyman was a mild-mannered ghostwriter named David Collins. His predicament, in 2017, is one that millions of us share: How to hang on to his hopes, his dignity, and maybe even his sense of humor, in a high-stakes game where the bad guys seem to be holding all the chips. Part dark comedy, part boardroom drama, part murder mystery, and part prescient satire, Money Talks is a refreshing reminder that truth will eventually win out and justice will eventually be done. 1.

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.
