The art and craft of writing by one of the few grandmasters of American literature, a bonanza for writers and readers co-written by Kurt Vonnegut's former student. Here is an entirely new side of Kurt Vonnegut, Vonnegut as a teacher of writing. Of course he's given us glimpses before, with aphorisms and short essays and articles and in his speeches. But never before has an entire book been devoted to Kurt Vonnegut the teacher. Here is pretty much everything Vonnegut ever said or wrote having to do with the writing art and craft, altogether a healing, a nourishing expedition. McConnell has outfitted us for the journey, and in these 37 chapters covers the waterfront of how one American writer brought himself to the pinnacle of the writing art, and we can all benefit as a result. Kurt Vonnegut was one of the few grandmasters of American literature, whose novels continue to influence new generations about the ways in which our imaginations can help us to live. Few aspects of his contribution have not been plumbed--fourteen novels, collections of his speeches, his essays, his letters, his plays--so this fresh view of him, written by a former student, is a bonanza for writers and readers and Vonnegut fans everywhere.

Are you feeling frustrated with your writing? Get HOW TO WRITE A THRILLER, and you will: - Learn to write a page-turning thriller just like the pros do. - Save yourself YEARS of trial and error. - Write with confidence, because you know exactly what you’re doing. When you buy HOW TO WRITE A THRILLER, here's what you're going to get: - a process for structuring and writing a thriller, that I have used again and again to consistently write page turners, and which has guided the creation of some of the bestselling novels of the past 50 years; - a step-by-step breakdown of how this process works (with a slew of examples), and how to make it work for you; - a shortcut used widely within the publishing and film industries, and which you can use to quickly and easily brainstorm ideas for saleable novels; - how to create so much suspense, it forces the reader to keep turning pages late into the night (despite the fact that they have to work in the morning), and how you can accomplish this effect; - how to hook readers from the very first page, and never lose their attention; - how to develop realistic characters, and the traits that some of the most popular and enduring characters in history have in common; About the author: Patrick Quinlan is the author of more than 30 books and ebooks, written under his own name and (at last count) three pen names. He has been an Amazon, iTunes, Los Angeles Times, London Times and USA Today bestselling author. Books he has written have sold hundreds of thousands of copies and been translated into at least ten languages. His novel SMOKED was optioned for film three times. A spy novel he wrote under a pen name, which was given away free as part of a promotion, was the most downloaded ebook in the English language on Christmas Day, 2015. Patrick is the co-author, with legendary movie star Rutger Hauer (Blade Runner, Ladyhawke, The Hitcher) of Rutger’s autobiography, ALL THOSE MOMENTS. Patrick will teach you everything he knows. Praise for Patrick Quinlan's writing: "Tarantino-esque novel about the past catching up with an ex-criminal turned children’s toymaker, and by extension with his young girlfriend Lola. Lots of villains and violent deaths plus likeable characters and some quirky humour. The first chapter – in which Lola busts her way out of a thoroughly nasty rape scenario with karate-kicking panache – would hook anyone." -- The Bookseller (UK) "Graphic action and exhilarating chases ensue as Quinlan's characters play cat-and-mouse through Portland,...makes one hope that Smoke hasn't quit the life entirely. Lola is a fierce delight." -- Publishers Weekly "A fast and furious thriller notable for a vintage collection of really rotten bad guys. Characters to care about, even the no-goods. Readers may be bearing early witness to the arrival of a major talent." -- Kirkus Reviews "SMOKED should absorb any fan of Bruckheimer blockbusters and everything else that goes boom." -- Entertainment Weekly "A fast-paced thriller...the story moves at warp speed, capped by a cinematic chase...before ending in spectacular fashion." -- Los Angeles Times
