About the Book

Three bestselling writing resources in one set!

Experienced fiction editor Marcy Kennedy’s has put three of her popular Busy Writer’s Guides together. Dialogue, point of view, and description are foundational skills you need to master to create vivid fiction that balances your character’s internal life with the external story world in a way that keeps readers turning pages.

The books in this set put writing craft techniques into plain language alongside examples so you can see how that technique looks in practice. In addition, you’ll receive tips and how-to exercises to help you apply what you learn to the pages of your own story. Most importantly, every book in the Busy Writer’s Guide series cuts the fluff so that you have more time to write and to live your life.

In this box set you’ll find…

DIALOGUE

To write great fiction, you need to know how to write dialogue that shines. You know the benefits strong dialogue can bring to a story—a faster pace, greater believability, increased tension, and even humor. But you might not know how to achieve it. In Dialogue, you’ll learn techniques and tricks for making your dialogue shine, as well as practical editorial steps you can take to polish your dialogue.

POINT OF VIEW IN FICTION

Point of view isn’t merely another writing craft technique. Point of view is the foundation upon which all other elements of the writing craft stand—or fall. In Point of View in Fiction, you’ll learn how to choose the right POV for your story, how to avoid POV errors, how to choose the right viewpoint character, and much more.

____________________

DESCRIPTION

Description in fiction shouldn’t be boring for the reader or for the writer. Description: A Busy Writer’s Guide will help you take your writing to the next level by exchanging ho-hum description for description that’s compelling and will bring your story to life, regardless of the genre you write.

What Writers Are Saying About the Books in This Set

“This is an excellent book. It covers how to describe everything from characters, to settings, to each of the senses, to the 12 stages of physical intimacy. Kennedy covers it all.” – Amazon Reviewer (Description)

“My critique group now thinks I ‘have that POV stuff down pat!’ Nope, I’ve got Marcy’s Purple Problem Solver… And highly recommend you get one too.” – Amazon Reviewer (Point of View in Fiction)

“You are the only person to explain POV in a way that makes sense even to me as a beginning writer.” – Amazon Reviewer (Point of View in Fiction)

“Dialogue is so difficult to write well. It can be the downfall of a good story. Marcy shines light on the elements of good dialogue and, for me, focuses her reader on the bad habits that are so easy to fall into. This is a great book to read before you begin to write your short story or novel and a great book to read before you read through your completed work. I liked that the book was full of good examples.” – Amazon Reviewer (Dialogue)
