Product description

Book Description

In this practical and lively handbook McIntosh guides you through the stages of writing a novel, from establishing good working habits all the way through to submitting your draft to a suitable publisher.

Product Description

To write is a verb.  That's an action word.  No more procrastination. 
Almost everybody thinks they have a book in them or dreams of seeing their name on a front cover, but not everyone knows how to go about it.  Sharing all she's learned so far, Fiona McIntosh, one of Australia's most successful commercial authors, shows you how to get started and, even more importantly, how to finish. 
In this practical and lively handbook McIntosh guides you through the stages of writing a novel, from establishing good working habits all the way through to submitting your draft to a suitable publisher. 
Chock-full of insider's advice on what makes a bestselling general fiction author, this invaluable resource will equip the newcomer to novel writing with the tools to finish your first draft within a year.  If you have a tough hide and a philosophical attitude – as well as a damn strong work ethic – you can make writing fiction your career. 
'This rare good book on how to set about writing a popular novel is compulsory reading.  Fiona McIntosh is top of the pops.'  Bryce Courtenay, at his final Masterclass
'[McIntosh's] claims are bold but never overoptimistic.' The Saturday Age
'McIntosh's examples and the exercises she sets in this interesting insight into gaining a foothold in commercial fiction are an eye-opener. And she is more than qualified to take on the role of mentor.' Gold Coast Bulletin
