How to Write Manga! Better, stronger, faster than before!

My new book is up! What started as a revision of Write! Shonen Manga turned into an almost complete re-write with lots of new material and approaches. This book now covers how to…

  • Write both Shonen and Shoujo manga.
  • Master the Ki-Sho-Ten-Ketsu story structure that makes manga unique.
  • Create epic battle manga like NarutoMy Hero Academia and One Piece.
  • Design manga characters that your audience can’t get enough of.
  • Grab your audience and keep them reading until the end.
  • Make your stories come alive with emotion.
  • Craft romance and slice-of-life manga that your readers will love.
  • Produce four-koma gag manga.
  • And so much more!

How to Write Manga will give you the simple and essential tools you need to write your manga your way.

Write! Shonen Manga is now available on Smashwords for Free!

Last summer, I began revising my book Write! Shonen Manga towards a second edition, however the more I wrote the more it turned from being a second edition into not one, but two different books! The first of these was All the Write Moves which was published last fall on Amazon, and the second one is the upcoming How to Write Manga, which will be released this summer.

How to Write Manga will be an almost a totally different book, and at first, I just removed Write! Shonen Manga from publication and was going to let it vanish into obscurity. But, the truth is, I’m leaving so much useful information from Write! Shonen Manga on the editing floor that it seemed a shame to take it completely out of availability.

Thus, I have decided to compromise- Write! Shonen Manga is now available on Smashwords as a “Choose Your Own Price” book. If you want to get it for free, go ahead and grab it in the format of your choice. All I ask is that if you like it, you leave a review on Smashwords so that others can find it as well. And, if you really like it, consider picking up How to Write Manga when it becomes available.

Time to make All The Write Moves!

A little over a year ago, I released Write! Shonen Manga, and included a section for getting new writers up to speed based on my 20 years experience as a writer and teacher. To my surprise, that writing section got just as must praise from readers as the parts of the book about writing manga, and some even suggested making it into a book all its own!

Well, far be it from me to argue with my readers!

I present to you All the Write Moves: Your Essential Guide to Creating Great Fiction, a revised and expanded guide to mastering the basics of writing fast and telling stories that you’ll be proud to share. It’s a small book, but filled with the major things all the great writers know by heart!

  • Ways to make your book engaging and exciting to readers.
  • Ways to write conflict and non-conflict based stories that resonate with readers.
  • Simple, practical ways to structure your stories.
  • Techniques to let you develop a full story from plot, character, setting, themes, or even your target audience.
  • Easy ways to make your target audience fall in love with your characters.
  • How to write scenes and sequences that fit together organically.
  • Special tricks that authors have been using to brainstorm and develop ideas for decades.
  • And so much more!

So, go give it a click! You never know what you might learn, and whatever kind of storyteller you are, there’s something in here for you!
