From the Beginning, Middle and End of a Novel
Authors of fiction will use every suggestion in Author Karleene Morrow's 'FICTION WRITING; How to Write Your First Novel.' This book was a gift that I value more than any other book gift I've received. Either as an e-book or the handy little print book to place by your computer as you create your novel, it is the great tool for a writer who is struggling to produce her or his novel. Each chapter brings simple but valuable suggestions. Ms Morrow is a novelist, who herself writes 5 star historical fiction. This is a 'must read' again and again for writers. I have no choice but to give it a five star rating.
Brilliant Advice for Writers
After writing 3 novels with this as a guide, the process became mush easier. I wish I had this book before I wrote my very first Novel.
Lots of good tips and information for any aspiring writer, I now follow a lot of the tips in here each time I write.
Thanks Karleene, this book helped so much!
If Only This Had Been Around 20 Years Ago
Karleene Morrow is the author of `Destinies', the epic saga of German immigrants who settled in Catherine The Great's Russia. A book which in my humble opinion was one of the standout novels of 2012. Here Karleene shares with us the skills and disciplines that were employed in crafting that wonderful book.
`How To Write Your First Novel' contains everything an aspiring author needs to know before setting out to pen their literary epic. From POV changes to writer's block; each point is laid out clearly and succinctly, so that the book is not only an invaluable guide, but would also be a useful aide memoir.
As a writer, I have learnt through trial and error a good deal of what is contained here. Some, I have to say I am still learning. I can't help thinking how much simpler my writing life would have been if this guide had been around twenty years ago.
So whether you are planning to write the 21st century version of War And Peace, or simply a short story to send to your local magazine, you would be well advised, first of all, to invest in a copy of Karleene Morrow's excellent book `How To Write Your First Novel.'
