Product description

Review

Don't submit your first manuscript without reading this book. --Mary Hoffman

I've always generally mistrusted self-help books, especially those offering advice to would-be writers, a gullible lot at best, who should probably be saving their money. Nicola Morgan's book is one of a very few exceptions. It offers excellent, practical, informed and unpatronizing advice to the published and the unpublished alike; exposes common fallacies; pokes fun at sacred cows; deflates pretensions; offers encouragement where deserved; admits to occasional 'crabbitness', but tells things as they really are in a world where success is increasingly hard to achieve. This is the tutor I wish I'd had when I was starting out: brisk, funny, just a little bit schoolmistressy, but an eminently sensible schoolmistress who knows her subject, doesn't suffer fools and is not afraid to hand out detentions where necessary. In short, Nicola Morgan is made of crabbit - but she is also made of awesome. --Joanne Harris

I've followed Nicola's blog since its beginning and because that's full of good sense and what's more, sense conveyed in a funny and likeable way, I for one can't wait to read the book. --Adele Geras
