Recent nonfiction

I’m very pleased to be working with WriteWorks Publishing on their entire 2011/2012 line.

One of the books I’ve done for them recently is Shelly Lowenkopf’s The Fiction Lover’s Companion, a 594-page reference book for readers and writers.

In the Kindle and epub versions, you’re able to click on terms to go to the entries for those terms. Print technology can’t quite do that yet, but the same terms are rendered in small-caps in the print version, so the user knows there’s something interesting to read about them.

One of the dangers of book layout is that it’s easy to get distracted by good content. In this case, it paid off: One of the entries helped me nail the climax of my short story for RIDE (coming in 2012).
