A Memoir of the Craft
This book can be downloaded and read in iBooks on your Mac or iOS device.
There is a reason why Stephen King is one of the bestselling writers in the world, ever. Described in the Guardian as 'the most remarkable storyteller in modern American literature', Stephen King writes books that draw you in and are impossible to put down.
Part memoir, part master class by one of the bestselling authors of all time, this superb volume is a revealing and practical view of the writer's craft, comprising the basic tools of the trade every writer must have.
King's advice is grounded in the vivid memories from childhood through his emergence as a writer, from his struggling early career to his widely reported, near-fatal accident in 1999 - and how the inextricable link between writing and living spurred his recovery.

S King , On Writing
Have been wanting to read this for years. Stephen King, you're my hero. So good to know a little it more about him, though much of his personality I've gleaned from his OTHER writings. A must-read for any of his Constant Readers. May he continue to entertain with his wondrous story-telling...........
The most moving writer's manual ever written. Stephen King reveals the secrets behind his success: his love for his wife and his unflinching honesty.
A warm book, written with immense generosity of spirit. Informative, practical and anything but dry, it is an encouraging read which offers concrete words of caution as well as straightforward advice for concise, engaging writing. Importantly, it carries with it the intimacy of the personal, reinstating that creative writing (regardless of it's educational intent) should never resemble the brittle directives of an instruction manual. A short read, well worth it.
