What's the #1 comment that agents, editors and writing instructors make to new writers? "You need to show, rather than tell."

But what does that really mean? Most writers have only a vague clue. They get the concept but they don't know specifically what to do to their own manuscripts to make them better--to grab the attention of an agent or editor. Nearly every how-to writing book talks about the importance of this vital concept, but few give actual techniques and examples.

Now, writing instructor and USA Today bestselling author Connie Shelton unlocks the secrets to that elusive concept of showing rather than telling. Quickly and concisely, Shelton gives the theory but, better yet, she gives examples. She shows exactly how to change a dull paragraph into a vivid one, how to use winning techniques to spark up your writing and make it appealing to publishers and readers alike.

Before sending out your next query letter, run your manuscript through the five proven steps given in Shelton's winning book, Show, Don't Tell. You'll be glad you did!
