Book Description

16 Aug 2007 Complete Guide to Writing Fantasy (Book 3)
In this, the third volume of The Complete Guide to Writing Fantasy, the wisdom of experienced fantasy writers will take you beyond writing your book, and into the world of publishing, book promotion and beyond. You've got the basics. You've dealt with the specifics. And now, you're ready to take the next step: seeing your work published. Before signing anything, it might be a good idea to know what you're getting into. Straight from the professionals comes everything you need to know about the going's-on behind the curtain. Understand publishing options from Double Dragon's Associate Editor Lazette Gifford. Hear from Dragon Moon's own Tee Morris on the art of self-promotion. From magazine editor and publisher, Michael Pederson, find out what short fiction and magazine markets wants from you, the writer. With an inside look at dealing with book critics, the media, and critique groups, join Valerie Griswold-Ford (author of Not Your Father's Horseman and co-editor of The Complete Guide to Writing Fantasy: Volume 2) and Lai Zhao (author of "Culture Shock," featured in The Complete Guide to Writing Fantasy: Volume 2) as they take you behind-the-scenes in making your first book a successful book... and set you on the road to your second.

1.0 out of 5 stars Description is entirely misleading 31 Aug 2013
By Christel Chancy - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
The Amazon description says it's about world-building. The reviews all say it's about world-building. I just got the book, and, well, here's a sampling of contents...

"Five Paths to Publication". "Press Releases and Communicating with Print Media". "Talk Show Appearances". "The Writer's Group".

In short? This book is about sales, publication, and drumming up a buzz for a novel. Not one word about world-building.

Somebody needs to actually read the back cover (at the very least), and write this book an entirely new description.
5.0 out of 5 stars A great book and series 11 Oct 2013
By Kelly Jeau G. Larson - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I love the down to earth methods of writing the authors present. Oh, there are some typos and such errors, but the information they provide either present items I know, and now feel more confident that I am on the correct path to getting my novel done; or I learned about items I had not even thought about. I trust these authors and the series publishers for these reasons.

5.0 out of 5 stars Awesome series! 21 Aug 2011
By S. Luther - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I purchased every volume in this series and I love that so many different writers lend their unique voice and expertise. Each has their own techniques to tackle different aspects of writing, so it has made my creation much more organized and productive. Great work!

4.0 out of 5 stars Great Book 16 Jan 2012
By Dr Who - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
My daughter keep borrowing this from the library because it was so good in helping her to write her fantasy novel. This fines were getting out of control so I purchased it for her. She says it is very helpful with helping to write a fantasy novel. It makes you like about things you would not normally think about. It helped her what kind of details to think about and how to research those details. Very, very helpful.

5.0 out of 5 stars Review on The Complete Guide to Writing Fantasy # 3 11 May 2008
By April Padget - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I really enjoyed this book. Yes, there are a few topics missing, but overall it's really great and was really helpful. I've read it and reread it. I always use it for references. I would recommend this book to anyone who is planning on writing a fantasy novel or just reading it for fun.
