In addition to Elizabeth's books on how to write and publish, she has launched a booklet series for novelists that treats one subject in depth. WRITING SUBTEXT tackles an important and often under-developed technique. CRAFTING TITLES leads the writer through a a systematic process to find the best title that hooks readers. You may think you've already found your best title, but most likely you can discover a far better one.
The author of six books for writers, Elizabeth's last book, Manuscript Makeover: Revision Techniques No Fiction Writer Can Afford to Ignore, was featured in "The Writer" magazine as one of the "8 Great Writing Books of 2008," and described as "perhaps the most comprehensive book on revising fiction."
