Product description


"Writing can be like hiking in the wilderness without a map. You have to feel your way through. Fortunately, a trail has been blazed by many of the brave pioneers who have come before. Adapting new tools capable of clearing the brush and lighting the way. To that end, Where Nightmares Come From is much like a field guide for creators of the macabre. It contains the myriad strategies other explorers have successfully used to navigate this perilous terrain. Whether it's practical lessons on craft, insightful dark philosophy, or fearsome inspiration you're looking for, this manual from the industry's most talented minds will help you purge the dark sludge from your subconscious, and turn it into something publishable. So venture on intrepid explorer! Use this guidebook to reach the summit of your literary dreams."--Brian Kirk, Bram Stoker Award-nominated author of We Are Monsters

--This text refers to the paperback edition.
