"Knowing how editors choose one work over so many otherswould give any writer an advantage. To that end, Lowenkopf, a longtime writer,editor, and educator, delivers the fiction-writing guide he has always longedfor--one that can be applied to the practical goal of every aspiring writer:getting published... VERDICT An invaluable insider's take on what editors lookfor when sifting through the slush pile." -Henrietta Thornton-Verma, LibraryJournal
"The effect is also similar to falling down a rabbit hole. To put it plainly,it's a tool that anyone who loves to learn more about the craft of writingwon't be able to put down, an indispensable addition to any writer's library." -MarcSchuster, Small Press Reviews
"While the definitions inthemselves are informative and quite entertaining, they are also ofteneducational in their examples and serve as great writing advice. Highlyrecommended reading, especially for writers." -Maya Fleishmann, Curled Up witha Good Book"This book is an excellent reference for writers to add to theirshelf right next to their thesaurus and dictionary to be referred to over andover again.

From the Author
"I wanted to produce the book I needed when I was settingforth as a writer, a book you could pick up at any page and be led by your ownneeds and curiosity rather than the logic pattern of a development editor. Iwanted a book that made me believe someone had given away the store."
