5.0 out of 5 stars Before you write your opening chapter - read this book. 11 March 2017
By J. Lewis - Published on Amazon.com
Verified Purchase
Excellent book. I originally purchased this book to understand plotting or outlining a novel. Hah! Ms. Walker doesn’t discuss plotting until Chapter 10. She focuses on Emotion (Chapter 2) so by the time you get to chapter 10, you’ve already figured out the plotting for your novel including highly detailed scene and character descriptions.

I’ll admit, I didn’t bother with most of the writing assignments after each chapter. The exercises I did complete generated 40+ pages (single space) of notes and ideas to use in my manuscript.

4.0 out of 5 stars Calling All Harlequin Applicants! 14 July 2015
By NorthernGirl5 - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
If you want to write for Harlequin, this book is for YOU. It's a detailed guide to what works and what doesn't for the largest publisher of romance. If you don't want to write for Harlequin, there are still enough golden nuggets in this book to well justify the price and time.
