THE WORKING WRITERS GUIDE TO COMICS AND GRAPHIC NOVELS


Towards the end of 2015 I was inspired to write a book on “How to write comics and Graphic Novels.”
This came about for two reasons.

Firstly, as a writer I’m always reading, looking to improve my craft and ability.

Although I’m a seasoned writer, I often buy new “how to write books” looking for that one nugget or insight that makes the purchase and time spent reading worthwhile.

I noticed with many of the comic writing books, they focused as much–if not more–on other aspects of comic production besides the writing. To be honest, I’ve already had a publishing company and I don’t really care what Stan Lee was up to in the 70’s. I mean sure,  that stuff is interesting, but when I want to read about writing craft–well, I want to be reading about writing craft.

Secondly, I work with a lot of new talent, self publishers and aspiring writers. Many of them are so passionate about writing in the comic medium, they don’t really spend a lot of time learning about the craft. Armed with a generalized writing comprehension, they simply push the world out of the way and jump into writing comics feet first.

Passion is required.

But passion tempered with knowledge and a strategy, attracts success.

So for these two primary reasons, I decided to sit down and put together a small (90 page), but informative guide.

A go-to bible if you will on writing comics and graphic novels.

And so, “The Working Writer’s Guide to Comics and Graphic Novels” was born.

Like I said, I spend a good amount of money myself buying books to hone my own skills. I’ve bought plenty of books for $25… $35… $40. Books that really didn’t bring much to the table other than great eye candy.

Ultimately, with this guide, I wanted to produce something that would come across as a huge value. Something I myself would buy and say, “that was money well spent.”
Buy it Now:
Order directly from me for $20. Just shoot me an email, mac@NickMacari.com – I eat the $6 shipping cost.

If you’re more comfortable ordering through a vendor, you can grab one on Amazon for a few dollars more on the shipping, or get it for the same $20 cost if you’re one of those fancy pants prime members. Here’s the Amazon link.www.amazon.com/Working-Writers…

If you buy the book and have any questions on the material presented or on some other aspect of comic writing, please drop me a line.

I wrote this book to help folks.

Whenever I have a free minute in-between projects, I’m more than happy to respond to questions, either here on the site in a post or directly in email.
