I do not appreciate being in the “Dummies” target market, but Writing Fiction for Dummies has been a great help to me, so if the shoe fits...
As a visitor to Randy Ingermanson’s site, I was familiar with some of its material, but his book takes learning how to write compelling fiction to a whole new level.
No book will help you do the work and, make no mistake, writing a novel is a lot of work. But if you want a comprehensive guide to: 1) help you select an approach to writing, 2) create a compelling story, characters, and setting, 3) learn to edit your novel, 4) pitch your finished manuscript to agents and publishers, and 5) a whole lot more, this is your book.
Writing Fiction for Dummies is a must read for first-time novelists.
