A Writer's Guide to Emotion

Here's the Key to Selling More Fiction
A non fiction book by

If you want to sell more novels, or short stories, you need to make your reader feel emotion. And here's a book that tells you how to do it.

Emotion is what holds the reader to the page ('I couldn't put the book down'), and it is the emotion conveyed by the final few pages that prompts a reader to go looking for anything else that you've written. Such readers will also recommend a book to their friends.

Beginning with a survey of what science can tell us about emotion, Michael Allen goes on to provide a working theory of emotion which writers can use to improve their skills. He then provides a working catalogue of emotions which will prove invaluable to any writer. In short, this is a straightforward and practical guide to making your fiction more effective and popular.

Michael Allen can draw on over fifty years of experience as a writer and publisher. He is the author of numerous novels and short stories (some written under pen-names) which have variously been published in hardback, paperback, and ebook editions, in the UK, USA, France and Denmark. He has also had work successfully produced on stage, television, and radio. He is a former director of two publishing companies.
