This drives authors to drink. All can we do is tell our publishers and raise a red flag. Most accessible authors have websites, and most even provide contact information. But before you send the author a flaming email or give a one-star review to a novel online due to price, format, issues with the e-book, consider….

Who are you really mad at, and do you have the right target? Another aspect in the cover art is sometimes the artist is given an assignment by the art director without text from the book! I hate it when the cover of a book doesn't relate to the description in the book--but now I understand it better. And finding contact info for publishers has become almost impossible now.

Barb, Thank you for this. I'll be linking to it my blog on Wednesday. I do think this is important information to share.

Writer's Corner

A lot of readers really don't understand how some of this actually works. Barb, thank you so much for writing this!

I've often heard this kinds of comments from readers at conventions. I am linking on my Facebook page now! Followed the link from C. People truly do not engage their brains anymore. Cheryl Wilson posted this link. I'm glad I followed it. Important info, and good to know. Will share - thanks. Thanks for this post!

I've heard bits and pieces of this information before but it's great to have it explained so nicely in a single post. I got this link via Christina Henry. In my last post, I talked about polar opposite reactions to our female characters. This, too, draws some polar opposite reactions…. Numerous readers have said they appreciate this because a year passes between books, and J.

The Noble Dead Saga is not like the other series that I write solo.

The Writer’s Corner: Authors and Their Books (and other Fairytales from the Internet)

Both the Vampire Memories and the Mist-Torn Witches series consist of encapsulated novels, where a specific challenge or mystery is set up and solved by the end of one book. Each book could easily function as a stand-alone novel and not much re-cap is necessary. The saga is a completely different animal—to the occasional frustration of our long-suffering editor. It is a very episodic phase oriented series, and we are currently working on book fourteen or Series 3, Book 5. So, regarding the review I mentioned above, I actually wished I could explain to this reader why some recap is unavoidable.

You looked around and looked at yourself and said, yeah man, some of us here we were the ones sitting on blankets listening to anti-war speeches before Steppenwolf came on stage. We had martial law, tear gas, beatings. I knew of the groups mentioned in the movie and the general vibe of the Movement. That showed me the times and the dangers were real.

Back then, the radicals were vigorously pursued, under limited technology of course a lot relied on informers. But all the chase scenes and dogs and guns stuff was necessary to move the story, to make it typical box office fare. The entertainment for me was watching Redford and Julie and Susan Sarandon and Nick Nolte and other veteran actors re-create and fan the flames of the Sixties arguments and, as well, exhibit their consumate on-screen skills. Julie is still striking. She played the most radical character, far-fetched, but what the hell.

Seeing lithe Julie piloting a sailboat to smuggle pot and hanging out in Big Sur with Sam Eliott, or gracing a dark cabin in the deep Michigan woods as filmed in Canada were pretty good visual moments on film. Shia was also fascinating to watch in his deft approach to chicks. The portrayal of the gung-ho FBI team was totally over the top. The Feds track Redford as if he had an atomic weapon or had murdered Santa Claus.

We get plenty of chances to see old Robert running around in the woods with his backpack and jeans and scruffy hair, as if he were flashing back on behalf of all of us. He described the form as a novel in which the author chooses to condense a storyline rather than expand it. For an aging writer who is being efficient with the energies he has left, the short form is logical, Roth admitted.

If the online literary journals are to be believed , writing compressed fictional pieces is revolutionary and the future. Most posted vignettes are often less than words, or less than ; in some cases they are limited to three or six sentences. One I saw recently was a contest with ten words max. Sudden fiction or flash fiction is an internet product, a celebration of economy of scope, style and narration. And may as well throw in poetic devices, too.

But at the core of the product itself, flash fiction is not really new and revolutionary. Flash fiction strives for pure, lean impact. Evocative and as far from exhaustive as possible. Yet many are real gems that carry a sparkle no matter how many re-reads, and these rise above those done by magic tricks with words that wow momentarily then are forgotten. Getting back to the short novel, what is it? But they do achieve an end by the same means: Kurt Vonnegut could present a novel with expansive action and concepts via his genius of writing pithy sentences and employing white space.

His thing was stylistic compression, not an abbreviation of storyline. The payoff comes in character portrayal and mood that feels more like theatre than a bound book. It is their density, their PSI that draws me in. He transmits an enormous amount of information. There are enough particularities to keep things visual and us the readers engaged.

What Kite Man teaches us about comic book writing. - Auram's Corner

Each has its merits, the expansive and the brief. Was Roth hinting at something else? What defines a short novel? Will flash fiction influence its presentation and what this new breed of insta-readers want? Is there something new going with short novels? A new sub-genre yet to evolve? The interviewer claims what the authors say can also be helpful in writing fiction, and certain discussion aspects lean in that direction. In the magazine article, it is fuzzy as to how much the guys were talking about non-fiction as opposed to novels.

The reader has to filter and decide. Old, established material is not always an asset. It can be a liability. Most should try 3rd. A 1st person narrator can sometimes function better as a guide. Research works, but its organizational methods and usage varies among writers and is a matter of what works. Writers can have varying quotients of talent but talent alone is not enough to sustain them. Like musicians, they must practice and work, and even harder if lacking natural ability.

Writing in stock prose and stale language is a dead end. Those who avoid institutionalese are really writing. The old days when house editors lended a hand are gone. More than ever, they say, one is wise to learn to DIY. Handsomely produced and over-abundant in verbiage, the content provides maxims and guidelines. Nothing about it strikes me as the Go-to book on the SEY process. Instead, most of the topics point back to the initial creative writing process.

The thrust of this book lacks clear distinction between fixing a draft which I had hoped it would, like a field manual I can refer to when I redline and writing a draft. What other editing advice do the authors provide? And I think most of us know how to break up dialog and we can usually spot a dangling participle.

Seems we could get some more pointed writing tricks of the trade. Enlightening us more about technique rather than mechanics. Maybe even something more subjective, like how do we prepare our mindset to view things fresh so we can fix them? How do we make a chapter become impressive reading rather than simply something correct by your rules?
