From the Author:

This book has been written and rewritten over the course of over a quarter century of making a living as a writer. I've added to it as I've more and more about the craft, art and process of writing.It's a Toolkit in that there are no hard and fast rules. It's not the hammer's fault if you try to use it when you actually need a saw. My belief is that you have to learn the craft, then you become an artist. 

About the Author:
