A book on how to write and get published - Part Two
This 200-page book gives you a great run-down of everything a writer needs to know, including: Viewpoint and Narrtion, Hooks, Style, Characterization, an entire part on Dialogue, and much more. After reading each detail-rich section (full of examples), you'll be given exercises that will greatly improve your work if done right. (I speak from experience.) I feel that I owe this book so much. It basically taught me how to write. Also, it's of nice quality. If my book was printed in paperback, I'd like for it to look like this book: nice fonts, easy to hold the pages open with one hand, good paper.
Extremely Highly Recommended. The First Five Pages by Noah Lukeman.
