On Writing Fiction by David Jauss On Writing Fiction, Paperback (August 2011)

The pieces of a satisfying novel or story seem to fit together so effortlessly, so seamlessly, that it's easy to find yourself wondering, 'How on earth did the author do this?' the answer is simple: He sat alone at this desk, considered an array of options and made smart, careful choices. This title helps writers learn how to make those choices.

Alone with All That Could Happen by David Jauss Alone with All That Could Happen, Hardback (July 2008)

Offers information and advice that helps writers make smart, creative and technical decisions about such topics as - using autobiographic elements in fiction; manipulating narrative distance via point of view; taking advantage of the virtues of the present tense; and building a connected and inviting short story collection.
