An excellent little Book,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: The Editor's Lexicon: Essential Writing Terms for Novelists (Paperback)
Indispensable - a must for every fiction writer and editor. Literary reference books are often too wordy, with their over-lengthy examples and valuable information difficult to locate. This lexicon is just the opposite: it offers all the principle terminology in alphabetical order under five useful categories - Premiss, Theme, Voice, Plot, Character and Style - and is cleverly designed for easy reference.
For writers, especially newbies, this little book will almost certainly de-mystify the often cryptic comments made by publishers in those maddeningly brief rejection letters; for editors it makes for a very handy reference to check out first impressions; for book reviewers it will help prevent errors of judgement, and for editors it will sit well alongside their more comprehensive literary texts. In fact, there's something for everyone here.
I shall be recommending this to the would-be authors in my novel writers' support groups and to all my other writing acquaintances in England, so well done Sarah and Glyd-Evans Press.
