W. Somerset Maugham on Novel Writing

“There are three rules for writing a novel. Unfortunately, no one knows what they are.” ~~W. Somerset Maugham

Read his book, THE SUMMING UP, for some real advice and insights into the writing life.


Maugham reveals much about his life in this great book, but more importantly, for the writer…much about the writing life.

If you liked the way Stephen King weaved his everyday life with his writing life in ON WRITING, you’ll like this book too. We get cherished glimpses of who Maugham was while we are simultaneously getting nuggets of writing advice we’ll keep with us forever.

Pick it up today.




Or, you could check out your local library or independent bookstore.
