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.
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!
