A Writer On Writing: Free Advice For Writers

Sally Jenkins draws attention to books offering advice to writers which are available free on Kindle.

Those of you with a Kindle might be interested to know that there’s currently a range of books about writing, available for free (yes, £0.00) on Amazon.

These include:

• The Author’s Craft http://www.amazon.co.uk/The-Authors-Craft-ebook/dp/B000JMLBRA/ref=pd_sim_kinc_63 by Arnold Bennett. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Arnold_Bennett

‘Arnold Bennett writes in a very amusing and accessible style in this short manual of advice for authors which will be useful even to today’s writers,’ says a review.

• Write Good or Dieb http://www.amazon.co.uk/Write-Good-or-Die-ebook/dp/B003H4QZOG/ref=pd_sim_kinc_1 edited by the thriller writer Scott Nicholson. http://www.hauntedcomputer.com/

This is subtitled ‘Survival Tips for the 21st Century’. One reviewer said, ‘It’s a gem of a book, not least because I came away from reading this with the thought that if the writers within this book can do it why can’t I?’.

By the way, free books do tend to come and go on Amazon – so if you’re interested in any of these it’s probably worth getting them sooner rather than later.

Many thanks to Philip Mallinson whose post on Writing Magazine’s Talkback Forum alerted me to these books. http://philipmallinson.wordpress.com/
