Mail carrier and aspiring writer Ezra Lockert is reclusive author Glen Dower’s “biggest fan.” Ezra realizes that the best way to become like his idol, he must become part of Glen’s life. Using his amateur sleuth skills, and his connections at the United States Post Office, Ezra tracks Glen down to the small town of Purgatory, Maine. Through a series of clever tactics, Ezra gets himself assigned to Glen’s mail route. He not only joins the Purgatory community, he also becomes their most accomplished stalker. For weeks, Ezra watches Glen from the woods outside Glen’s house and studies his patterns and writing habits. After learning all he can, Ezra takes the next step and befriends Glen. As the friendship grows, Ezra believes he can now take the next step toward becoming a writer. But he is about to get closer to Glen than he had even dreamed. Praise for WANNABE: “If Martin Scorcese’s King of Comedy and Stephen King’s Misery had a kid, it might look and read like M. Wallace Herron’s Wannabe. This funny, breezy, satiric take on idol worship, the publishing business, and the craft of writing will have you quickly turning the pages till you get to the surprising end, worthy of the best of Alfred Hitchcock.” —Charles Salzberg, Two-time Shamus Award nominee for Devil in the Hole and Second Story Man “Herron’s Wannabe is a delightfully twisty and fascinating read. Watch out what you wish for indeed.” —Reed Farrel Coleman, New York Times bestselling author

Map out your idea and finish your story in 7 stages! This book will show writers how to develop their ideas into a finished novel by working through it in 7 stages, while learning how to mapping out their story's progress and structure so they can evaluate and improve their work. It teaches writers to visualize their story's progress with a story map that helps them see all the different components of their story, where these components are going, and, perhaps most importantly, what's missing. The book simplifies Aristotle's elements of good writing (a.k.a. that each story should have a beginning, a middle and an end) into easily applicable concepts that will help writers improve their craft. The author helps readers strengthen their work by teaching them how to focus on one aspect of their story at a time, including forming stories and developing ideas, building strong structures, creating vibrant characters, and structuring scenes and transitions. Thought-provoking questions help writers more objectively assess their story's strengths and weaknesses so they may write the story they want to tell.

"A hilarious book for animal lovers and risk takers everywhere! Brian McCann introduces us to Wannabe Farms, and we never want to leave." - Amy Poehler From acclaimed comedy writer Brian McCann comes Wannabe Farms, the insanely funny, rhyming collection of stories that asks the question: What do farmyard animals really want to do with their lives? Welcome to Wannabe Farms, a farmyard where the animals like to wonder and dream, plot and scheme, and definitely not act how they're supposed to. In rhyming verse, Brian McCann (writer for Conan O'Brien) shows us what happens when cows want to drive, pigs dream of being sophisticates, and sheep take their hairstyles into their own hands (well, hooves). Together, what emerges is a delightful, hysterical romp through the farmyard, as animals discover the place where dreams meet their limits, and the power of adjusted expectations. With hilarious two-color illustrations on every spread, this collection of stories brings Shel Silverstein and Old MacDonald together in a way readers young and old have never seen before!

This is a memoir as wry, funny, moving and vivid as its inimitable subject himself. This book will be a joy for both lifelong fans and for a whole new generation. John Cooper Clarke is a phenomenon: Poet Laureate of Punk, rock star, fashion icon, TV and radio presenter, social and cultural commentator. At 5 feet 11 inches (32in chest, 27in waist), in trademark dark suit, dark glasses, with dark messed-up hair and a mouth full of gold teeth, he is instantly recognizable. As a writer his voice is equally unmistakable and his own brand of slightly sick humour is never far from the surface. I Wanna Be Yours covers an extraordinary life, filled with remarkable personalities: from Nico to Chuck Berry, from Bernard Manning to Linton Kwesi Johnson, Elvis Costello to Gregory Corso, Gil Scott Heron, Mark E. Smith and Joe Strummer, and on to more recent fans and collaborators Alex Turner, Plan B and Guy Garvey. Interspersed with stories of his rock and roll and performing career, John also reveals his boggling encyclopaedic take on popular culture over the centuries: from Baudelaire and Edgar Allan Poe to Pop Art, pop music, the movies, fashion, football and showbusiness – and much, much more, plus a few laughs along the way.
