My next book with Nicholas Brealey publishing is going to be "Your Creative Writing Masterclass," which features quotes from classic and modern writers' advice to writers and exercises that help you apply that advice to your own writing. It has grown from 55,000 to about 85,000 words and I have another 1.5 drafts to go. That one should be out in November of this year.
Beyond that we're discussing producing an enhanced ebook on screenwriting. By enhanced, I mean that there would be audio and video embedded within the book. For starters, these would be clips of interviews with writers, agents, producers and maybe some others about some of the key points in the book. I'd love to include film clips but I fear the permissions process (and the prices) will be prohibitive.
It's very early days yet--we're looking at the second half of 2012 for publication--but I wanted to invite you to give me some feedback. What extras would you like to see in an ebook on writing (especially screenwriting, but I can also imagine future enhanced versions of "Your Writing Coach")?
You can either add your thoughts as a comment here or email me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
I'll also keep you posted as the process goes on, in case you may have a book in mind that might benefit from this format.
(In the meantime, of course you can get a good old-fashioned informative and lovely to hold paperback of "Your Writing Coach" from the usual booksellers.)
