Product Description

Product Description

Viewpoint, in fiction, is the point of view from which a story is told. As such, it is one of the most important weapons in a writer’s armoury.

Does the author tell the story as if she was a god, looking down on all the characters and seeing their innermost thoughts? Or is the narrator one of the major characters in the story? Or even a minor character?

The way in which a writer handles the point of view is what sorts out the professionals from the amateurs. It has an amazingly powerful influence over the extent to which you can grab, and hold, your reader’s attention – which is why the subtitle of this book is How to Tell Your Story in the Most Effective Way.

Michael Allen’s first novel was published fifty years ago (1963). He is the author of numerous other novels and short stories (some written under pen-names) which have variously been published in hardback, paperback, and ebook editions, in the UK, USA, France and Denmark. He has also had work successfully produced on stage, television, and radio. He is a former director of two publishing companies.

More About the Author

Michael Allen is best known for writing popular mainstream fiction, and he's been doing it successfully for more years than he cares to remember. (Actually his first novel was published in 1963.) Here are some quotes from reviews of his work:

'Absolutely first class' The Bookseller
'Solidly constructed' New York Times Book Review
'A pleasing narrative style' Daily Mail
'Beguiling entertainment' Kirkus Reviews
'Don't miss it' The Observer

These days, Michael publishes all his new work in Kindle format. Much of his earlier work is now out of print, and some of the printed books listed on Amazon are only available secondhand; but most of this earlier output will gradually be republished in Kindle versions. In addition, there are some brand-new publications, listed on Amazon Kindle for the first time anywhere.

Michael Allen is also known for his practical books for writers:

From 2004-07, Michael wrote a daily blog, the Grumpy Old Bookman. Still available online, this contains over one million words of essays, book reviews, and useful information for writers. Michael has recently reopened the blog for occasional reviews, news, and opinion pieces.
