Book DescriptionIn Follow the Story, author and journalist James B. Stewart teaches you the techniques of compelling narrative writing. It is the indispensable guide to writing successful nonfiction books, articles, feature stories, or memoirs. Stewart provides concrete directions for conceiving, reporting, structuring, and writing nonfiction - techniques that he has used in his own successful books and stories.
