Making Story

The speed at which an ebook can be written and published makes it possible—perhaps for the first time—for writers to raise funds as quickly as entertainers can, to reach out to generous people when the emotional impact of a disaster is still fresh.

In 2011 it was my pleasure to take part in two fine books, both story collections, that raised money for very deserving causes, the plight of Bangkok's poorest children and the relief effort in Northeastern Japan.

In 2012, I persuaded twenty-one novelists (including myself) to describe how they go about turning an idea into a plot, and a plot into a book. The result, Making Story, is an indispensable book for aspiring authors.
