Publisher's Summary

An indispensable guide to the craft of writing and business of publishing from one of our best-selling and most versatile authors.

Onetime teacher and best-selling novelist Joanne Harris has been advising and corresponding with aspirational writers for more than six years. This collection of pithy and funny lists of advice provides both hard-won wisdom and insider industry help. All aspects of the writing process and story development are covered - as is the thorny issue of how and where to find readers. From workspaces and habits to plot and dialogue, these are motivating, problem-solving lists from an experienced and widely respected writer. 

Uniquely, Ten Things About Writing also takes the listener beyond the stage of finished manuscripts and editorial changes - into the territories of rights, publicity and marketing. Whether you have the urge to write crime fiction or a fantasy novel, literary short stories or blockbuster thrillers, Joanne's lists will speak to you.
