Writers On Writing Volume 1-4 Omnibus

The omnibus of the first four editions of Crystal Lake's Writers On Writing series is out this weekend and available to preorder now, with a host of special offers and competitions.

I've for two essays in the book. The first, Embrace Your Inner Shitness, is about the freedom in letting yourself go and writing a bad first draft, whilst the second, Fictional Emotions; Emotional Fictions,  tackles that hoary old cliche that good writing should evoke an emotional response - but what exactly does that mean in practice?

Plus there's a whole bunch of essays from great authors like Kevin Lucia, Mercedes M. Yardley, Lynda E. Rucker, Jack Ketchum, Stephanie M. Wytovich, Brian Hodge and many many more. It's a book that contains a multitude of clashing, complimenting, and contradicting views on how to write well, and is all the stronger for it. A book that makes you think about how you write, rather than being told how you should. Come join the conversation.

Writers On Writing Omnibus is out in both ebook and paperback editions - you can win a copy of the latter over at the Crystal Lake webpage too.
