Danielle Ackley-McPhail's take on the craft of writing is intelligent, insightful, and often quite funny-as is the woman, herself. She tackles, with style and skill, everything from the mysteries of dialogue to the vagaries of the modern publishing world."
-Ty Drago, Author, Editor, Publisher


Have a Dream of Being An Author?
Frustrated with Banging Your Head 
Against the Publishing Wall?
(Let's Face It...Why Else Would You Be Reading This?)
Don't Worry. You Are By No Means Alone!

Success in publishing is equal parts skill, determination, knowledge, and pure, dumb luck. If you have the drive, and you have the skill, but you're missing that little bit of insight into the industry, this book might just be the edge you're looking for.

(For the luck...you're on your own.)

Crack the cover to learn more about effective dialogue,
the difference between the major publishers and small press,
self-promoting, naming characters, avoiding procrastination...
and so many other demons that haunt the aspiring author.

The Literary Handyman also includes a series of writing exercises tailored toward helping you to apply the information gained in the book.

Format
Original electronic
Scanned image
These products were created by scanning an original printed edition. Most older books are in scanned image format because original digital layout files never existed or were no longer available from the publisher.

For PDF download editions, each page has been run through Optical Character Recognition (OCR) software to attempt to decipher the printed text. The result of this OCR process is placed invisibly behind the picture of each scanned page, to allow for text searching. However, any text in a given book set on a graphical background or in handwritten fonts would most likely not be picked up by the OCR software, and is therefore not searchable. Also, a few larger books may be resampled to fit into the system, and may not have this searchable text background.

For printed books, we have performed high-resolution scans of an original hardcopy of the book. We essentially digitally re-master the book. Unfortunately, the resulting quality of these books is not as high. It's the problem of making a copy of a copy. The text is fine for reading, but illustration work starts to run dark, pixellating and/or losing shades of grey. Moiré patterns may develop in photos. We mark clearly which print titles come from scanned image books so that you can make an informed purchase decision about the quality of what you will receive.
Original electronic format
These ebooks were created from the original electronic layout files, and therefore are fully text searchable. Also, their file size tends to be smaller than scanned image books. Most newer books are in the original electronic format. Both download and print editions of such books should be high quality.
