Alexander Kreator (via Amazon) -
Picked book up at the library and liked so much I purchased for use for reference. Very helpful checklist for a new writer. Thank goodness only one page on "show" and "tell" so this not being rammed down ones throat as a new writer as seems usual by all the literary course attendees. Not very keen on square format. It does make the book easy to find in a pile. Will use as a companion to "How to Write a Blockbuster" a useful reference work.
