Best Books


These are the books I have read and would fully recommend to anyone that wanted to get right to the crux of powerful writing. They are all amazon links, please click them.

I’ve got new books! Story Engineering is amazing, as is 20 plots. The above bunch are pretty much all the writing books I have. Enjoy

There were 10 on this list, but I’ve recently updated it. If I had to pick 4, it would be Writing Tools, On Writing, Make A Scene, and Breathing Life Into Your Characters. The Artful Edit is OK, but not incredible. No Plot is brilliant if you want a kick up the backside – and btw, NANOWRIMO is coming up in (every) November, and this book comes from it.
