Here’s a link to a recent review by Moira Allen, editor of Writing-World.com, of How To Write Your Best Story.
Here’s a bit of it:
What [Martin] succeeds in doing, admirably, is not only describing some of the elements of good storytelling, but describing them in such a way as to model good storytelling in the very act of explaining it. In short, this book is wonderfully readable. I have stacks of books on my shelf, waiting to be read – but when I picked up this one I wanted to keep going until I finished it.
