Overview

This book could teach you how to write fiction. Or not. You decide. ***
Follow copywriter and poet, Laura, as she tries to figure out how the hell to write a novel to meet Megan Willow's challenge: a book by September.

Megan has a thriving tea business and does everything in a big way. To her, the idea of writing a novel in a matter of months is beyond simple. All you need is the will, and you'll find the way.

Confused by romantic love and her own place in the writing world, Laura delves into her past, as she tries to bring a novel into the present. To tutor her efforts, she culls wisdom and hope from greats such as Mario Vargas Llosa, Mary Shelley, and medieval story-weaver Murasaki (whose real name has been lost to history, because she was a woman).

Can Laura write a novel by September? She might not even make a cup of tea by midnight. So who's to say.

Editorial Reviews

Darrelyn Saloom
The Novelist is a pleasurable escape into the known and unknown world of Laura’s inner journey. Barkat’s ability to weave poetry into prose makes it impossible not to sink into her beautiful writing. It’s one of those rare books you’ll finish but leave on the nightstand.

—Darrelyn Saloom, co-author of My Call to the Ring: A Memoir of A Girl Who Yearns to Box
