    Stein on Writing provides immediately useful advice for writers of fiction and nonfiction, whether newcomers or accomplished professionals. As Sol Stein, renowned editor, author, and instructor, explains, "This is not a book of theory. It is a book of usable solutions, how to fix writing that is flawed, how to improve writing that is good, how to create interesting writing in the first place."

    "Food for Thought"
    Overall

    I've read them all - oh my god, I've read them all - and Mr. Stein's book (accompanied by the easy sounding Mr. Lane) is the best of them.

    /don't even bother trying to torrent it, the WHOLE thing is not out there. I know.

  • The Hero's 2 Journeys

    Make your story the best it can be on two levels. Hear each superstar teacher present his unique approach to story telling.

    Jane says: "I enjoyed this."
    "More Michael Hauge"
    Overall

    Mr. Hauge's theory on Identity vs Essence really sparked a torrent of ideas on me - and now I want to know more.

    Unfortunately, 2 of the 3 hours (seem to be) all Mr. Vogler and his application of the Hero's Journey. But once you 'know' about the Hero's Journey, I don't find there's much more here to gain.

    Not sure the price is right however. But take it from me, Michael Hauge is where it's at if you want to write screenplays or novels.

  • Interview with Elmore Leonard

    Story

    In this exclusive interview, best-selling author Elmore Leonard talks with Audible's Beth Anderson about his long and prolific career, his writing process, and what it's like to have an inside track on Hollywood. Leonard has sold most of his books to Hollywood, several of which have been made into movies, including Out of Sight, Jackie Brown, Get Shorty, and its sequel, Be Cool, starring John Travolta and Uma Thurman. Be Cool hits theaters March 4.

    Troy says: "Thank you, Beth."
    "Talks about his Craft"
    Overall

    For other emerging writers out there that need to placate themselves about the 'way' they are doing things, Mr. Leonard offers up his approach to characters and craft (that at least jived with the way I write).

  • Mystery: Cops & Crooks in California (2009): Los Angeles Times Festival of Books

    The Los Angeles Times Festival of Books began in 1996 with a simple goal: to bring together the people who create books with the people who love to read them. The festival was an immediate success and has become the largest and most prestigious book festival in the country, attracting more than 130,000 book lovers each year.

    "Priced Too High"
    Overall

    If you are a fan of the authors, you'll have a great time hanging out with them ('cept Mr. Wambaugh, he doesn't say much) for an hour.

    Their banter is better than most stand-up.

    But if you're like me, looking for some insight into the craft of detective fiction, there's little here to take away.

    Should be 99 cents.
