Are you one of those people who dreams of writing a book but you don’t know how or where to begin? Or maybe you have begun but got stuck along the way.
Perhaps you have a couple of half-written books in a drawer somewhere and you’d really love to finish one and see it on the shelves in your local book store, or available to buy online.
If so then the Fiction Writing Workbook has been made for you. It takes you step-by-step from your first paragraph right through to getting your manuscript published. It includes information about self-publishing as well, in case you decide, like many authors these days, to be an independent publisher. Believe me when I say that’s not as scary as it sounds.
You can write and publish your own novel, short story or memoir and achieve your dream. The Fiction Writing Workbook is a comprehensive but enjoyable and inspiring book that will show you everything you need to know to successfully become the author you yearn to be.
The book contains a step-by-step formula for writing fiction, full novels, children’s books, short stories and memoirs. Packed with vital information, practical activities and writing exercises all aimed at helping you develop your characters and plot lines.
