If you were to buy just one how-to book on writing, Foundations of Fiction is it.

So, you want to write a novel? Your character is demanding to be let out of your head and be put down on paper! How do you write a story that sells?

Writing good fiction is more than having a great story in your head. It is creating characters that live and breathe and plots that grip the reader. It is creating a setting that is real to your readers, dialogue that sparkles, and pacing that drives the story forward. It is action scenes that put the reader, sweaty palmed, in the middle of it all, and love scenes that melt the reader's heart. You need to learn the art of crafting a story.

How do you get your story published? Foundations of Fiction takes you step-by-step through the process of finding an agent or publisher, and creating a compelling synopsis.

All writers serve an apprenticeship as they learn their craft, but learning by trial and error is frustrating and tedious. Foundations of Fiction covers all of the nitty-gritty techniques of fiction writing. This how-to book, written by an author who has been there and done that, is your foremost source for creating a story that sells!
