Writing a Novel and Getting Published For Dummies
Writing a Novel and Getting Published For Dummies
by George Green
Edition: Paperback

3.0 out of 5 stars Usual how to write stuff . . ., 25 Mar. 2016
This book is well written and produced. And yet . . . .

If this book is the product of 20 years in the business, then the novelist and agent have learnt nothing !

They could just as well have read countless others on the market to learn the business ! ! !

So, I believe these type of books really teach you nothing of the secret world of the real novel writing business. When you read published books they are used nothing of the standard information in these novel writing manuals.

Now, I must complain about a fact of how agents treat us unpublished writers. If they must address us as DEAR AUTHOR, then we really do have the right to address them as DEAR SIR OR MADAM. But agents will NOT tolerate this ! ! !

5.0 out of 5 stars Just use it ! ! !, 14 Jan. 2016

Just the thing to convert four into something suitable for proper formed loaves. Ordinary bread flour is shocking without this gluten mix.
Highly recommended.

Just the ticket for my Klarstein mini oven. The adapter is fantastic quality, just the same as those two pin shaver adapters.

1.0 out of 5 stars Waste of perfectly good trees !, 14 Jan. 2016
My mother got this out of the library and thought it was the worse book she,d ever read.

I,m a student of creative writing, and I have a special message for the agent and publisher of this novel . . . .

Why do you allow what is clearly such trash to be published ? It proves that you are not the professionals that you believe you are !

You simply do not need to allow this book to exist just because it is the latest. There are millions and millions of better writers and storylines out there that could result in brilliant writing !

2.0 out of 5 stars Drownton Abbey continued. . ., 23 Oct. 2015
Disappointing, and it was supposed to be highly original . . . it wasn,t.

May I recommend to people something much, much better?

Try the original TV show and it,s novelization . . . Doctor Who and the Horror of Fang Rock !

Write a Novel - And Get It Published: Teach Yourself
by Nigel Watts
Edition: Paperback

3.0 out of 5 stars A book that can "do your head in" !, 29 Oct. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Read this book when first came out in 1996. Loved it then, but I have to say that in today's market there are much better.

Yes, I agree with all the other reviews, and I MOSTLY AGREE with all the points in the book, but I think it isn't a completely friendly, easy step-by-step experience as it should be. There are American writers that have produced a better simple styled work. Lots of modern on-line advice is also much simpler and clearer.

I have to admit that there are even several places where Nigel contradicts himself, and he fails to give examples of bad writing - which is the only way to show "how-to-write".

Sadly since he died, he can't improve this book !

Still, I'd like to read his fiction novels, though.

5.0 out of 5 stars GOOD QUALITY PIECE OF KIT, 28 Aug. 2013

This is just what you need if you want to check the level of sound coming from your speakers of your keyboard or organ.

You don't want to annoy your neighbours, and you wish to stay within the law. Not that I play THAT loud and at
anti-social times . . . but you get my meaning.

You find that at different times of the year and in different temperatures, you can't hear your music as clearly, and this will help to see if the speakers are sounding at the same volume.

VERY USEFUL ITEM.
