I’ve been hard at work revising and updating my guide to writing a novel, with two new rules and many expanded and polished chapters.
Better yet: It will be available as an audiobook very soon!
This is all of my best writing advice all in one place. Even if you’re a regular reader, you’ll appreciate having all the best tips at your fingertips in a more polished format than this ahem occasionally typo-ridden blog.
How to Write a Novel is available for pre-order now and will be released on October 15, giving you plenty of time to give it a read before NaNoWriMo.
Read the guide that New York Times bestselling author Ransom Riggs called “The best how-to-write-a-novel book I’ve read.”
