Have you ever wanted to write a horror story, but didn’t know how to start or proceed? In this easy, step-by-step guide, HowExpert presents Randal Schaffer: a horror fiction writer, enthusiast, and fan who will walk you through the process of not only writing a compelling horror story, but writing fiction stories in general. In this book, you’ll learn:-How to pick a topic for your book that will bring your readers along until the very end. -How to choose a setting for your book that your readers can understand and mentally insert themselves into. -How to write characters that your readers will care about, and either root for or against. -How to build suspense in order to create that perfect “page-turner” that all writers seek. -How to use gore in such a way that you’ll make your readers squirm, but not be so disgusted that they put the book down. -General tips on writing, such as keeping the story believable within the universe that you’re creating, and editing out anything that doesn’t serve the story. -How to wrap your story up in a satisfying way that will make readers seek you out again to read more from you. About the Expert Randal Schaffer’s tastes were turned in the direction of horror with the first film that he saw at the age of four, The Pit and the Pendulum with Vincent Price. The first story that he “wrote” using comic-strip style panels was about a mad scientist who creates a giant moth-man who then bit his head off. As an early reader, Randal began devouring H. P. Lovecraft and E. A. Poe in grade school, moving on to Stephen King and Clive Barker. He is writing his own series called “Shivers: Tales of Erotic Nightmare”. The first of these, Going All the Way is currently on Amazon, to be followed soon by book 2, Lady Frankenstein’s Lover. HowExpert publishes quick 'how to' guides on all topics from A to Z by everyday experts.

High school students, two-year college students, and university students all need to know how to write a well-reasoned, coherent research paper—and for decades Kate Turabian’s Student’s Guide to Writing College Papers has helped them to develop this critical skill. In the new fourth edition of Turabian’s popular guide, the team behind Chicago’s widely respected The Craft of Research has reconceived and renewed this classic for today’s generation. Designed for less advanced writers than Turabian’s Manual of Writers of Research Papers, Theses, and Dissertations, Seventh Edition, Gregory G. Colomb and Joseph M. Williams here introduce students to the art of defining a topic, doing high-quality research with limited resources, and writing an engaging and solid college paper. The Student’s Guide is organized into three sections that lead students through the process of developing and revising a paper. Part 1, "Writing Your Paper," guides students through the research process with discussions of choosing and developing a topic, validating sources, planning arguments, writing drafts, avoiding plagiarism, and presenting evidence in tables and figures. Part 2, "Citing Sources," begins with a succinct introduction to why citation is important and includes sections on the three major styles students might encounter in their work—Chicago, MLA, and APA—all with full coverage of electronic source citation. Part 3, "Style," covers all matters of style important to writers of college papers, from punctuation to spelling to presenting titles, names, and numbers. With the authority and clarity long associated with the name Turabian, the fourth edition of Student’s Guide to Writing College Papers is both a solid introduction to the research process and a convenient handbook to the best practices of writing college papers. Classroom tested and filled with relevant examples and tips, this is a reference that students, and their teachers, will turn to again and again.
