How do writers sell novels to New York houses

or build a substantial reader base by releasing books as an Indie author?

The answer is: They write books that sell.

Sounds simple, right?

But how do YOU write a great book that readers and editors will enjoy? Whether you're a plotter or a pantser (write by the seat of your pants), Break Into Fiction® is the book that will help you locate – and fix – weak spots (sagging middles, unlikeable characters, slow pacing and more) in your fiction stories. Editing is key to any story, but it starts with the author.

Writing fast means nothing if the final story isn't sound. What's the point in having five, ten or fifty mediocre books finished? The sooner you grasp the power points for a story, the faster you'll be able to build a strong backlist. Now you have a way to improve your writing one easy step at a time.

Written by a New York Times bestseller Dianna Love and USA Today bestseller Mary Buckham, Break Into Fiction® is a workshop-in-a-book and the one resource all writers need to master the art of fiction. This book is based on the popular workshops taught in the US and internationally to all levels of writers and even a double Pulitzer Prize winner.

Break Into Fiction® is here to help aspiring-to-bestselling authors with a step-by-step guide!You're considering this because you have questions. Open this book and find answers.

This book is as an 8.5" x 11" workbook format to make using it even easier.

"The questions make you think. Harder, and then harder. Fresh ideas pop into your head, and-- voila--your characters come to life as real people with deep-seated issues, and your plot thickens. Where was this book when I needed it nine drafts ago?" Joy S, writing student
