I found this book to be very helpful since it covers everything from story and plot formation to the business end of writing. And more importantly, each area contains both examples of what to do and what not to do from some of my favorite science fiction and fantasy authors. Very helpful to any first-time novelist.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.
