If I've discovered anything in the last year, as both an author and a publisher, it's that everyone has a story. A lot of people want to write a book and become a published author. Unfortunately, not everyone has the knowledge to do that. They know what they want to say, but not necessarily, how to say it. I am going to try and help you write well and hopefully get published too.

"Secrets to Writing Well - Volume 1" was a huge success, climbing to #1 on the Kindle Bestseller List, and receiving numerous 5-Star reviews. We decided that there was more to share, so here we are with Volume 2.

We are going to take a look at more of the elements that go into writing a fictional story; what they are, how to use them effectively and how to put them together, to make a good story. We are going to start with a basic story and work on developing it together, so that you can observe the actual process.

This volume will cover, Character Development, Conflict, Theme, Commonly Misused Words, Parts of Speech, Literary Techniques, Proper Punctuation, Literary Genres, Words to Replace Said and Words to Describe Objects, Human Characteristics and the Senses. We also threw in a bonus chapter on the top selling books, authors and series of all time.

Richard S. Hartmetz has written more than thirty books, edited more than 300, and is the CEO of Starry Night Publishing in Rochester, NY, as well as a long-time teacher of writing workshops.
