Overview

An entertaining, readable approach to becoming the best novelist you can be.

After selling 100 novels and teaching writing at the college level, USA Today bestselling author Jacqueline Diamond shares her knowledge of the craft of fiction in this 24,000-word book (about 80 pages). You won't find any one-size-fits-all schemes, just solid information with a personal approach, and tips organized to help you no matter how much or how little writing experience you have.

The author of the Safe Harbor Medical series, numerous mysteries, romantic comedies and fantasy/s.f. novels as well as half a dozen Regency romances, Diamond has also created study notes around sample chapters. These are geared to help writers analyze how to capture the tone and reader expectations in three different genres.

Here are quotes from some of Jackie's writing students:

"Your assistance has helped me gain my footing and develop enough confidence to begin writing as I always dreamed I could."

"You've been a most encouraging instructor. Your comments have been insightful and easy for me to understand and learn from."

"It's hard to believe how much I have learned about the craft of writing in such a short time. There is no way I could have done this on my own."
