Synopses & Reviews

Book News Annotation:

Morrell, author of First Blood, the award-winning novel in which the character Rambo was created, offers advice, instruction, and encouragement for fiction writers. The sections of the book are arranged so that they lead the reader through the process Morrell follows when putting a novel or story together, from getting the idea to making choices among viewpoints and structures, and dealing with description and dialogue. There are also chapters getting published, the business of writing, and the novelist as marketer. He uses examples from his work to illustrate mistakes he's made or problems he solved. He also discusses Rambo and the challenge of dealing with Hollywood. This updated edition contains a new chapter on publicity and marketing. There is no subject index.
