Craft Book Spotlight: 8 new books for writers to add to their shelves

Elements of Fiction

By Walter Mosley

Walter Mosley is perhaps best known for his award-winning and bestselling novels, including the wildly popular Easy Rawlins series, but in 2009 he also published This Year You Write Your Novel, a practical beginner’s guide to writing fiction that’s still beloved today. A decade later, now he’s returned to the fiction-writing space with a follow-up book, Elements of Fiction. In Elements, Mosley tackles character development, voice, plot, description, revision, and more, all demonstrated by rich examples. Library Journal calls it “a no-nonsense guide worthy of shelf space with Strunk and White’s The Elements of Style and E. M. Forster’s timeless Aspects of the Novel.
