It's a truism ? but perhaps untrue ? that everyone has a novel in them. What is certainly true is that there are vast numbers of people who aspire to writing fiction, and who are in need of clear-eyed, unsentimental, practical and friendly advice. 102 Ways To Write a Novel offers a refreshing blend of mundane, 'nuts-and-bolts' counsel (how to look for an agent; how to incorporate revision into your daily schedule; different ways to go about research) , with more intellectually stimulating ? yet always practical ? discussions of the art of fiction (there are pieces on rhythm and style, getting to grips with point of view, and so on). In both content and form, this is unique among books that serve up advice on how to write fiction. It is written with style and wit by someone who has actually walked the walk. Quick's non-pseudonymous novels are regularly reviewed in the national press (a recent review in the Sunday Telegraph ended Wonderfully accomplished ? the whole thing is a delight). And it is beautifully designed with black-and-white illustrations throughout, to appeal as a gift as well as a 'feel-good' self-purchase. It will become the must-have 'how to' book for the legions of aspiring authors. SELLING POINTS: ? There really are millions of people trying to write fiction ? Every page is informed by experience, with unique tips spread throughout ? Unlike most of its competitors, this is a book with personality, written with warmth, humour and style ? and beautifully packaged.
