Magical Words How-To Cover Blurb!

How To Write Magical words:  A Writer's Companion, edited by Edmund Schubert, cover photograph by David B. CoeHow To Write Magical Words: A Writer's Companion has received its first cover blurb, and it's a doozy!

"This is the best idea for a writing book that I've ever seen. It's like sitting in a room full of professional writers, and after each one delivers a riff on one aspect of writing, the others weigh in to buttress, amplify, refine, or add to what was said. It's an extended conversation with writers who know what they're talking about - and what matters in writing fiction that really communicates with readers."
-- Orson Scott Card
 
The book is now available for pre-order from the publisher, BellaRosa Books.

Is there a release date yet? I didn't see one on the book's website. (or perhaps I'm just blind...)

No set release date, although we expect pre-orders to ship before the end of December (not sure if they'll be in time for Christmas). Amazon should list it in early January, and it should be available on Kindle by the end of January.

That really is fantastic that you got OSC to blurb the book, and what a great blurb. The "extended conversation" is exactly what it feels like. This was my holiday present to myself. :)

Thanks, Eleika! So do you actually have a copy in hand yet? Or are you still waiting? Either way, I hope you enjoy it.

Well, I'm up here in Canada (this is my personal LJ account - I'm Moira), so I expect it'll arrive sometime in very early January. But I'm looking forward to its arrival!
