“Stuart has so energetically engaged my book that in his ‘living with’ my material he has taken the earlier structure and made the project more sound, dynamic, and alive. He has guided my writing and pressed me gently, firmly, and enjoyably to stay on schedule. Stuart’s dedicated work has made me a better writer and led my efforts to have even more depth and resonance than I had imagined.”

“Stuart pointed out to me that I was trying to put dozens of family stories into one book and some even distracted from the messages I wanted to convey in The Other Madisons. He asked questions that helped me to keep the big picture in focus. I am very proud of the book that came out of Stuart’s guidance. Thanks to him, I feel the varied elements work together to enhance one another in a balance that is almost musical.”

“Because this book has been in development for almost a decade, Stuart Horwitz was of enormous help in shaping the final manuscript, working closely with me to craft the stories I wanted to tell. I’m indebted to him.”

“I was one of those people with a book idea locked in ‘someday’ mode until I worked with Stuart Horwitz. I wasn’t even sure I had a full-length book on my hands, really. Stuart eased me into the process with one small step and within a short amount of time I had a book proposal, a book contract, and a publishing date. Thank you, Book Architecture!”

“Many times I had the feeling, ‘Wow, Stuart figured out what I was trying to say!’ Book Architecture’s encouragement definitely helped me keep going. In those moments when I felt lost, Stuart taught me about the power of structure to tell a story. The story’s there, it just has to be structured so people can hear it.”

“Stuart Horwitz’s workshop helped inspire a rewrite that won a short-listing in the Faulkner-Wisdom novel-in-progress competition and and also landed me the agent who sold my book. The Book Architecture Method offers something that I have not found elsewhere—a systematic analysis of effective novel structure. With it I was able to see clearly why certain aspects succeeded and others were unsatisfying. Better yet, I saw how to fix the problems. Intuition can be great, but knowing what you’re doing is the most freeing feeling of all. Thanks, Stu!”

“Stuart Horwitz was the perfect editor for me. Master organizer, tireless word-wrangler, empathetic, and completely ’no-nonsense’…a rare combination to find in one individual. I loved working with Stuart, from creating a polished book proposal to getting the manuscript into submittable form. It’s no exaggeration to say that I wouldn’t be holding my just-published book without Stuart’s expert help!”
