Creating Stories: Two New 5-star Reviews

My book Creating Stories has received two new five-star reviews thanks to Booksprout

I found this book interesting and offering a lot of great information on what I need to help me get my story out of my head and onto paper.  Excellent guide. Patricia Eroh

 

Hank Quense is the successful author of several series, and shares the rules of writing from perhaps the best, in my opinion, viewpoint. He knows what sells. He reminds us that our primary job as a writer is not to record egotistical spewage (my word), but to entertain, inform, and maybe educate the reader. So he shows how to write in such a way that readers actually want to keep reading. That’s exactly what I need.

This is not a grammar book, by any means, but an accessible discourse on how to best use the medium of written language to connect with an audience.
And I truly appreciate his use of so many personal experiences, and examples of how he applied the principles he shares.
This statement sounds so very wrong, but this was the first textbook which was actually fun. Ghostriver
