Product Description

Great dialogue is essential to fiction -- but what are the elements that make it great? Novelist Matt Posner breaks down the subject with meticulous detail and plentiful examples from published novels. Using classic novels and recent novels by active publishing authors, Matt tackles every element of dialogue writing, from content to punctuation. It's a fun and comprehensive study of dialogue writing that's as entertaining as it is useful.

How to Write Dialogue contains selections of expert dialogue writing by eleven current working and publishing authors in many genres. This amazing bullpen includes fantasist JA Beard, science fiction writer Cynthia Echterling, harsh realist Marita A. Hansen, multicultural icon Junying Kirk, horror specialist Stuart Land, fantasy romance author Mysti Parker, conspiracy expert Roquel Rodgers, prolific nonconformist Jess C. Scott, fantasy/science fiction/romance author Chrystalla Thoma, thriller and children's book writer Ey Wade, and time travel romance specialist Georgina Young-Ellis.

Featuring commentaries by best-seller Tim Ellis and prolific non-conformist Jess C. Scott, and with illustrations by fine artist Eric Henty, How to Write Dialogue is a powerful resource for fiction writers at all levels of experience.

"Before reading How to Write Dialogue, I was looking for ways to make my dialogue even better. Not only did Matt Posner answer all my questions, but he also included best practices that I can really use to write authentic, page-turning dialogue." -- Ezra Barany, best-selling author of The Torah Codes
