4.0 out of 5 stars Helpful as checklist 12 Jun. 2014
By Ann T. Rose - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition
Use this book as a starting point, or if you are a more experienced writer, as a checklist to see if you are satisfying the required elements of a novel. Also offers helpful suggestions and exercises when your book seems to be going off track. Note, I am writing this about the 1996, 2003 edition.

1.0 out of 5 stars Lousy, misleading 4 Feb. 2013
By James G. Watt - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
It is misleading-it tells me nothing about getting it publsished as an e-book and everything else is geared toward the English market. It really was a waste of money.
