Top Customer Reviews

Format: Kindle Edition
Poor characterisation is often the ‘killer’ for any publisher’s reader simply because readers want to identify with the people in a novel and if the author hasn’t painted a compelling portrait of their hero (or heroine) than the story immediately falls flat. Nicholas Corder’s book is a ‘must have’ for all potential and published novelists because those on their second or third novel can find themselves running out of ideas for creating new and exciting characters and villains. An experienced creative writing tutor, the author has included exercises at the end of each chapter to stimulate the way we go looking for characters. Highly recommended.
