No-nonsense approach just what I was looking for!
on 1 May 2010
Sophie King's straight-forward, no nonsense approach to the art of novel writing was just what I was looking for - she demystifies an otherwise confusing process. Instead of offering a pre-packaged 'recipe' (as I've found so many similar books to do) - Sophie encouraged me to develop my own style with helpful tips and exercises - while at the same giving enough guidance to keep me from going too far astray. I highly recommend this book to all aspiring novelists. From the first page to the last, it's clear Sophie has had many years of teaching others the art form which she herself has perfected so well.
