The Complete Guide to Sheds: Utility, Storage, Playhouse, Mini-Barn, Garden, Backyard Retreat, More
This second edition of CPi's "Complete Guide to Contemporary Sheds" picks up where the original left off. All of the most popular shed plans are still here, plus we've added several new designs to further widen the scope of the styles and plans. Because sheds with overhead doors are very popular with homeowners who drive a riding lawn mower or own a snow thrower, we feature a third mini-garage type shed. All major construction steps are shown in clear, full-color photos, accompanied by materials lists and a full set of plan drawings. For those who simply want a nice-looking outbuilding that's easy to build, we've added new utility shed plans to the mix. Combined with more than a dozen full sets of shed plans and step-by-step photos, the up-front technique material shows you how to accomplish every aspect of shed-building, from design to adding roof coverings.

Inside the Hollywood Fan Magazine: A History of Star Makers, Fabricators, and Gossip Mongers

Inside the Hollywood Fan Magazine: A History of Star Makers, Fabricators, and Gossip Mongers by Anthony Slide
English | Feb 26, 2010 | ISBN: 1604734132 | 288 Pages | PDF | 9 MB
The fan magazine has often been viewed simply as a publicity tool, a fluffy exercise in self-promotion by the film industry. But as an arbiter of good and bad taste, as a source of knowledge, and as a gateway to the fabled land of Hollywood and its stars, the American fan magazine represents a fascinating and indispensable chapter in journalism and popular culture.

Inside the Hollywood Fan Magazine: A History of Star Makers, Fabricators, and Gossip Mongers
Anthony Slide's Inside the Hollywood Fan Magazine provides the definitive history of this artifact. It charts the development of the fan magazine from the golden years when Motion Picture Story Magazine and Photoplay first appeared in 1911 to its decline into provocative headlines and titillation in the 1960s and afterward. Slide discusses how the fan magazines dealt with gossip and innuendo, and how they handled nationwide issues such as Hollywood scandals of the 1920s, World War II, the blacklist, and the death of President Kennedy. Fan magazines thrived in the twentieth century, and they presented the history of an industry in a unique, sometimes accurate, and always entertaining style.

This major cultural history includes a new interview with 1970s media personality Rona Barrett, as well as original commentary from a dozen editors and writers. Also included is a chapter on contributions to the fan magazines from well-known writers such as Theodore Dreiser and e. e. cummings. The book is enhanced by an appendix documenting some 268 American fan magazines and includes detailed publication histories.

Shoot Your Novel: Cinematic Techniques to Supercharge Your Writing

English | ISBN: 099138945X | 2014 | 182 pages | EPUB | 0.2 MB

Shoot Your Novel: Cinematic Techniques to Supercharge Your Writing
Want to write a visually powerful novel? Shoot Your Novel takes an in-depth look at cinematic technique for fiction writers. No other writing craft book teaches you the secret of how to "show, don't tell."
Best-selling authors of every genre know the secret to hooking readers-by showing, not telling, their story. But writers are not taught how to "show" scenes in a cinematic way. Without a clear, concise, and precise method for constructing dynamic scenes, a writer will likely end up with a flat, lifeless novel.

Filmmakers, screenwriters, and movie directors utilize cinematic technique to create visual masterpieces, and novelists can too-by adapting their methods in their fiction writing.

By "shooting" your novel, you can supercharge your story!

Sol Stein, in his book Stein on Writing said, "Readers, transformed by film and TV, are used to seeing stories. The reading experience . . . is increasingly visual." Novelists today-regardless of genre-need to learn how to write cinematically because that's what readers want!

Inside, you'll learn:

The real secret to "show, don't tell" and how it's all about "the moment"
More than a dozen "camera shots" novelists can borrow from screenwriters and directors to create powerful, active scenes
Instruction on how to piece camera shots together to create cinematic scene segments
Examples from novels and screenplays showcasing each facet of cinematic technique
How to devise a thematic image system of key shots, motifs, and images
Ways to use colors, shapes, sounds, and angles for purposeful subliminal effect
Shooting your novel with a filmmaker's eye will transform your good novel into a great one and will change forever the way you approach constructing your scenes. No other book gives you such deep, thorough instruction in cinematic technique for fiction writing.

Here's what some best writing instructors and best-selling authors have to say about this essential writing craft book:

"With such an extensive amount of experience in the screenwriting and filmmaking process (since childhood), it comes as no surprise that C. S .Lakin writes with a trustworthy authority and wealth of insight when it comes to the craft of building dynamic scenes within novels. The pace and flow of Shoot Your Novel makes it easy to follow and the various tips and pointers strewn throughout are succinct. Of particular note is the smart curation of novel excerpts, authors, and filmmakers she cites as examples for the tips she suggests. If you have trouble understanding some of the pointers/tips theoretically, the excerpts always make it more clear.

Having myself adapted The War of the Roses for both film and stage, I can say that I have actually used quite a few of the techniques Lakin discusses and the one I like the most is the use of portraying "daydreaming" when writing from the POV of a character, effectively blending past, present, and future in one single scene-there is a lot of this going on in The War of the Roses and it is one of the aspects of the story flow that has made the rendering of the character a success. Well worth the read!" -Warren Adler, best-selling author of The War of the Roses and Random Hearts

"With Shoot Your Novel, Susanne Lakin does something wonderful and unique. While lots of us in the business of helping writers and storytellers recommend adding vivid images to scenes, Lakin goes much further to reveal how employing the tools and techniques of movie directing, editing and cinematography will give your fiction deeper meaning and greater emotional impact. Her book is an essential tool for any serious novelist." -Michael Hauge, Hollywood screenwriting coach, author of Writing Screenplays That Sell

The Indomitable Spirit of Edmonia Lewis. A Narrative Biography

The Indomitable Spirit of Edmonia Lewis. A Narrative Biography by Harry Henderson, Albert Henderson
2013 | ISBN: n/a, ASIN: B0098AD21M| English | 567 pages | EPUB | 2 MB

The Indomitable Spirit of Edmonia Lewis. A Narrative Biography
Winner of the eLit GOLD award: "Illuminating Digital Publishing Excellence."

Edmonia Lewis was the first famous "colored sculptor" and the first to idealize her African and American Indian heritages in stone. She flourished from 1864 through 1878, and, as an artist, was a rare instrument for social change in the aftermath of the Civil War. She pressed her case for equality from her studio in Rome, Italy, and with annual tours of the United States.

Our new narrative of Lewis's life and art updates many "established facts" – well beyond erroneous birth and death dates – with more than 100,000 words, 50 illustrations, 800 references, bibliography, index, and a reference list of more than 100 works with notes on museum holdings. It is based on private letters, public documents, essays, hundreds of news items, reviews of her work, museum collections, and more than two dozen published interviews. It reveals how a world biased against her color, class, gender and religion received her. Of special interest to African-American and American-Indian studies, as well as art, women's, and American history, the narrative opens an abundance of previously unrecognized sources, reinterprets important relationships, names missing works, and corrects the identification of an important portrait. Students of the nineteenth century will find it a cool counterpoint to the bitter rage of Civil War and Reconstruction.

Readers familiar with her legendary icons of race may be surprised by her many portraits and her untold moves to Paris and London. They will also find answers to long-standing questions: Where, when, and how did she die? Why did her encounter with a bronze Ben Franklin leave her reeling? Why did she idealize a woman with African features only once in her career? Why did she never cite the now-famous Forever Free after her first interviews in Rome? Why did she have to stalk Henry Wadsworth Longfellow through the streets to make his portrait? Where was her studio? How often did she tour America? How did she enter her work in the 1876 Centennial expo, which had barred colored people absolutely? What were her relationships with fans, mentors, and fellow sculptors? Who were her rivals, her best friends, and her worst enemies? Fresh evidence, never before collected and collated, argues a novel motive for her erotic masterwork, the Death of Cleopatra, which sits apart in her ?uvre like a hussy in a small town church. Newly realized sources also change our view of her childhood and provide ample support to refute distortions of her personal character, sexuality, and appearance.

Harry Henderson was co-author with Romare Bearden of the "landmark" History of African-American Artists from 1792 (Pantheon, 1993) and 6 Black Masters of American Art (Doubleday, 1972). Albert Henderson has contributed to a number of learned journals and books.

New and Selected Poems: 1962-2012 by Charles Simic
2013 | ISBN: 0547928289 | English | 384 pages | EPUB | 0.55 MB

New and Selected Poems: 1962-2012
"It takes just one glimpse of Charles Simic's work to establish that he is a master, ruler of his own eccentric kingdom of jittery syntax and signature insight." -Los Angeles Times

For over fifty years, Charles Simic has been widely celebrated for his brilliant and innovative poetic imagery, his sardonic wit, and a voice all his own. He has been awarded nearly every major literary prize for his poetry, including a Pulitzer and a MacArthur grant, in addition to serving as the poet laureate of the United States in 2007 and 2008.

In this new volume, he distills his life's work, combining for the first time the best of his early poems with his later works-including nearly three dozen revisions-along with seventeen new, never-before-published poems. Simic's body of work draws inspiration from a range of topics, from the inscrutability of ordinary life to American blues, from folktales to marriage and war.

Consistently exciting and unexpected, the nearly four hundred poems in this volume represent the best of one of America's most distinguished and original poets.
