Have you tried to take your writing skills to the next level but don't know where to begin?

Do you dread the thought of writing narrative description because as a reader you skip over it when you read novels?

Or are you a writer who ignores Setting description totally in your novel writing, but know your story needs it? You just don't know where.

Active Setting, explained in comprehensible bites with clear examples from a variety of published authors can help YOU breakthrough with your writing skills.

Readers usually remember the plot and characters of a story, but setting is every bit as important in creating a memorable world. Novel writing can be enjoyable once you've mastered a few of the writing skills necessary to bring a story to life.

If you're tired of your Setting descriptions being ho-hum and are ready to create a compelling story world, regardless of what you write, or your current level of writing skills, keep reading.

Mary Buckham has created a treasure for writers. This is a fabulous craft book for the writer who does not want readers "skimming" over chunks of their story because the setting bogs it down. And for the writer who wants to draw readers deep into their world. And for the writer who wants to use setting to show emotion or reveal details about their characters. Need I go on? Kudos to Mary on producing a book that shows how top authors write great setting and easy steps for any writer who wants to improve setting in their stories~~NYT Bestselling author, Dianna Love
