If one hears one thing from every single writing instructor it’s, “Show, don’t tell.” “Don’t tell us he’s afraid of losing her, show us!” “Don’t tell us it’s a richly decorated room, show us!” “Don’t tell us the Russian tundra is cold, show us!” Easier said than done, and no one ever wrote a book on how to do it, that is until William Noble wrote this classic work a decade ago. From the use of dialogue to employing melodrama to developing incidents and anecdotes, Show Don’t Tell explains how to entertain your readers instead of lecturing to them. Written in Noble’s absorbing voice, Show Don’t Tell illustrates how to develop a dramatic framework using similes and metaphors, a focused point of view, steady pacing, increasing tension, and an appeal to the senses to create solid dramatic impact. In other words, how to show, not tell! Perfect for novelists, short story writers, and those interested in writing creative nonfiction.

'You may think you know, but you never really know. You may think you see, but you never really see. Don't show, don't tell.'How far would you go if you found out everything you knew was a lie?There is no more time to wear a veil. There is no more time to look away.

You are told that you are free, but are you truly free? Everything that you are told, every newsreel you see, every headline you read is a manipulation of the truth. You are informed, but are you informed of the truth?This society is brainwashed to believe everything that we see, hear, and feel. We are blinded to the truth, living as zombies, oblivious to what is happening right in front of our very eyes. Abigail Lane is proud to publish her first indie collection of dystopian psychological thriller short stories surrounding popular conspiracy theories and questions that arise in modern-day society. These stories will leave you questioning your very existence and your very truth. After reading these stories, will you begin to second-guess everything that you know?

In the tradition of The Gatekeepers, a veteran counselor provides the missing key to the college admissions door with insider wisdom about how admissions committees think, and the thirteen fatal mistakes that can ruin an application. When Don Dunbar was a college counselor for Phillips Academy, Andover, in the 1980s, he got to sit in on the meetings where the nation’s top colleges decided whether to admit his students. Prep school counselors no longer get this kind of astonishing access, but in those meetings, Don discovered a little-known key to college admissions that still holds true today. Many applicants look alike, based on their grades, test scores, and extracurriculars, so colleges want something more: They want applicants with character. Most of us know what character means, but not in the way that admissions officers define it. Admissions officers have tremendous integrity, and to them, character equals what a student will contribute to his or her community, good or bad, over the next four years. Don explains the concept of character in terms that high school students can understand, using examples from his thirty years of working with kids. He shows readers how to avoid the thirteen fatal character mistakes that even the brightest students make when applying to college and democratizes the admissions process, making his advice available to all students.
