APRIL 2010

• Provides insightful techniques for raising the stakes, killing off a character, using autobiographical elements, employing framing devices and more

• Advertising in Writer’s Digest magazine

Peter Selgin’s thoughtful writing resource breaks down the fiction writer’s process into four levels—soul, substance, structure, and style—and shows how misunderstandings at any of these levels can result in a novel’s failure. The book then offers technical solutions, exploring topics and devices such as melodrama, violence, plot, character development, flashbacks, etc. to help writers think more deeply, wisely and carefully about their choices so they make the correct ones that will result in a work of art.

Peter Selgin is the author of By Cunning & Craft (Writer’s Digest, 2007). His stories and essays have appeared in more than 50 publications including Salon. com, Glimmer Train, Boulevard, Poets & Writers and Missouri Review. His story collection, Drowning Lessons, was a winner of the Flannery O’Connor Award for Short Fiction.

“Show, don’t tell” is common writing advice, but what does it really mean? In Showing & Telling, noted author and professor Laurie Alberts demonstrates the art of getting the balance between the two just right, no matter what a writer is writing. The book covers “Scene” and “Summary,” the two basic components of creative prose, and shows writers how to employ them within a narrative. Writers will also be shown how to write scenes and cut exposition, as well as how to compress time, summarize background information, and transition seamlessly between showing and telling for well-balanced and more readable prose.

Laurie Alberts is the author of six books including three novels: The Price of Land in Shelby, Lost Daughters and Tempting Fate. She has won several awards, including a Jame Michener Award. She teaches in the MFA in Writing Program at Vermont College of Fine Arts.

New Coin Folders From...

Coin folders have a long, distinguished legacy as being most people’s first exposure to the coin collecting hobby. Everyone either has or knows someone who has been given a coin folder as a child and gone on to fill it with cents, nickels, dimes, or quarters. Coin folders are the most common entrée into coin collecting and are an easy, low-cost way to begin. These folders from Warman’s—most carrying a retail price of $4.99—are a low-cost purchase for parents, grandparents, aunts, or uncles looking to engage children in a healthy, educational hobby. Most folders are larger than comparable folders in these denominations and have attractive, glossy covers.

How to See, How to Draw Keys to Realistic Drawing

Claudia Nice

• Claudia Nice is a proven winner with over 400,000 books sold; her classic, mainstream drawing style appeals to a wide range of tastes and abilities

JULY 2010

• Drawing books are consistently top sellers


• This book teaches how to observe and practice fundamentals

• Advertising in The Artist’s Magazine

• Sketches, reference photos, 60+ mini demonstrations and 20 finished drawings keep things interesting to look at

• Publicity to major art and drawing publications and media outlets

This book begins with teaching readers how to observe—to see what’s really there, not what the artist wants to see. Observation is a skill that’s learned and practiced, and one of the hallmarks of successful artists is that they know how to look at a subject with clear vision unfettered by preconceived notions or old habits. The author shows first how to observe an object, and second how to translate that observation into an accurate rendering using graphite pencils, charcoal pencils and pen and ink. Readers will value the use of reference photos, diagrams, sketches and comparative examples found throughout the book.

Claudia Nice is the author of eleven successful North Light books including Creating Textures in Pen and Ink with Watercolor, How to Keep a Sketchbook Journal, Watercolor Made Simple with Claudia Nice and Down by the Sea with Brush and Pen. Well known by both fine artists and creative painters, her friendly voice and clear instruction reaches many artists.

The bulk of the book is composed of flip pages and pattern instructions. Each of the flip pages is divided into thirds: the top third features a cuff pattern, the middle third showcases a body choice, and the bottom third pictures a heel and toe. Readers can flip the sections to preview how different elements will work together in a single sock.

Jonelle Raffino is the creative force behind SWTC, Inc., an internationally recognized yarn brand known for its earth-friendly collections. Her daily blog and company newsletters are read by thousands each month, garnering outstanding reviews from her growing list of readers.

MARCH 2010

In addition to Michael’s personal anecdotes, readers will be walked through the step-by-step creation of their own nicho (nook shrine), bottle-cap milagros, several painting techniques and will also receive a tear-out collection of eight loteria game cards. This book has a great random-access approach where the reader is able to open the book to any page and jump right in and enjoy the sights.

The Journal Junkies Workshop Visual Ammunition for the Art Addict Eric M. Scott and David R. Modler

It shows how easy it is to use a plethora of art techniques to translate experiences and thoughts to a journal with step-by-step instruction for everything from drawing and doodling to watercolor and stenciling.

Eric Scott and David Modler are artist/educators whose work focuses on the use of a visual journal. They call themselves the Journal Fodder Junkies and have given workshops and presentations at regional and national conventions.

Absolutely Organize Your Family Simple Solutions to Control Clutter, Schedules and Spaces

Debbie Lillard

the From of r o h t u a utely Absol zed i Organ

• Advice for organizing children—their schedules, their stuff and the spaces they play in and inhabit

JULY 2010

• Age-specific organizing ideas for toddlers to teens


• Time Planning and Space Planning worksheets that help parents evaluate their children’s schedules and areas to make the most of both

• Publicity to women’s and family-oriented publications, blogs and websites

Absolutely Organize Your Family offers help to the parent who says, “I’m organized, but my kids are the problem!” Instead of imposing their own organizing systems on their children, parents will learn how to make the children a part of the decision-making process. The children become more motivated to follow the system and, along the way, learn life skills. Each chapter presents specific organizing challenges faced by children and offer physical resources and routines for meeting them. The solutions are broken down by the age of the children: preschoolers, elementary kids and middle school/high school, so readers can skip right to the solutions that pertain to their families’ needs.

Debbie Lillard is a Professional Organizer and a mother of three. After starting her own organizing business in 2003, she appeared on several episodes of HGTV’s Mission: Organization. Since the release of her first book, Absolutely Organized (North Light Books, 2007), she has appeared on national talk radio shows and been quoted as an organizational expert in national magazines. She was recently interviewed for an article in the June 2009 issue of Real Simple.

Sustainable living expert Wanda Urbanska, offers accessible paths for those seeking a solution to bringing their lives and homes into balance with the planet, technology and daily demands. Her teachings motivate lifestyle changes that encourage a way of life that is more meaningful and satisfying, filled with less stuff and more connection to community and inner self. She shows how to create a personal framework for a better future through frugality, finding work they love, rethinking housing, a clean and healthy home, cooking in bulk and eating local fare, growing a garden for body and soul and infusing rituals and celebrations with meaning, not money. SARAH’S SOLUTION: RECONFIGURE EXISTING SPACE While describing my remodeling plans for the Sunflower House to my friend and colleague, renowned architect Sarah Susanka, at a green building show in California in September 2007, she excitedly grabbed a paper napkin and began sketching an alternate configuration for my laundry nook. I had made the decision to bring my washer and dryer upstairs from the basement and incorporate them into the sunroom, thus placing them within easy reach of the kitchen, my study and the outdoor clothes line I was planning for the yard. Sarah suggested removing the wall separating the sunroom and study and capturing space for the appliances from inside my study rather than placing them along the existing wall in the sunroom (which would partially block a window).

While not high furniture, the finished project is on constant display for all to see

JULY 2010 MARKETING • Advertising in Popular Woodworking magazine • Featured on

Easy to Build Birdhouses covers three main areas of taking care of birds around the home. The main emphasis is on a back-to-nature approach with houses designed to not only look natural—with careful wood selection and an unobtrusive appearance—but with fitting the house to the bird itself, addressing the needs of individual species. A secondary focus is on the feeding requirements of birds with an examination of what they eat and the best ways to present food to them. And finally, the book recognizes that it’s possible to provide homes for our flying friends, and have fun too, by providing some colorful and whimsical birdhouse designs.

AJ. Hamler is the former editor of Woodshop News and was the founding editor of Woodcraft Magazine. He recently served as Senior Editor for The Collins Complete Woodworker (HarperCollins/Smithsonian). When not in his workshop, his other interests include science fiction (writing as A.J.
