Starve Better offers practical advice for making a living as a writer. In Apex Publications' survival guide, Nick Mamatas touches on both craft and business. Starve Better makes no promises of making you a bestselling author. It won't feed aspiring writers' dreams of fame and fortune. This book is about survival: how to generate ideas when you needed them yesterday, dialogue and plot on the quick, and what your manuscript is up against in the slush piles of the world. For non-fiction writers, Starve Better offers writing techniques such as how to get (relatively) high-paying assignments in second and third-tier magazines, how to react to your first commissioned assignment, and how to find gigs that pay NOW as the final notices pile up and the mice eat the last of the pasta in the cupboard. Humor, essays, and some of the most widely read blog pieces from Nick Mamatas, author and editor of fiction that has caught the attention of speculative fiction's most prestigious awards, come together for the first time in a writers' guide that won't teach anyone how to get rich and famous... but will impart the most valuable skill in the business: how to starve better.

Watch out for the Stress Gremlin – he loves to feed on your stress, and as he gets bigger and bolder, you get more and more stressed! How can he be stopped? Don't give him any more stress to eat, and watch him and your stress disappear! Starving the Stress Gremlin shows young people how they can manage their stress levels through a range of effective techniques based on cognitive behavioural principles. Engaging and fun activities as well as real life stories from other young people show how our thoughts are related to our behaviour and emotions, allowing young people to understand why they get stressed, the effects of stress and how to 'starve' their Stress Gremlin! This informative workbook is easy to read and fun for a young person aged 10+ to complete either on their own or with the help of a parent or practitioner. It is also a valuable stress management resource for those working with young people, including mental health practitioners, youth workers, social workers and education sector staff.
