[nice clean copy with minimal shelfwear; jacket a bit ragged, missing a couple of shallow pieces at top of front panel, small chips at top corners of rear panel, various other minor tears, fading to spine] "How to write and market the romantic story," by the longtime editor of Love Story Magazine (who also edited numerous other popular fiction publications during her 22-year career with Street & Smith, including Detective Story Magazine and Doc Savage Magazine). She was also quite an animal-lover, it seems: in the middle of Chapter 3, "How Can I Find Out What the Editor Wants?", she suddenly goes off on a tangent about her love for various members of the animal kingdom (especially cats), making statements such as "I believe there is still room for us as a nation to improve not only upon our treatment of cats but of other animals as well."
