After writing my second book, Pimp My Site, I started rewriting one of my novels I knew I needed to improve my characters and turn them into real life people not just names in a book.

To do this I have used several great titles for creating characters as well as information on the zodiac and stars. Although some people think it is a bunch of `hog-wash' the zodiac is a great way to forming various character traits, personality flaws and foibles that we all encounter in the best fiction `people'.

Enter ... A Writer's Guide to the Zodiac: How the Stars Can Help You Understand Your Characters!

For starters the book will not frighten off the nervous or anyone vaguely doubtful of star signs and the zodiac. It is a slim `little' offering with quick reference to each star sign. But don't be fooled by the `slim', it powers much punch!

The cover is delightful with each star sign stepping out onto the red carpet in high heels bespoke to their star symbol. They're all lovely shoes but take a look at Libra and how the `scales' are balancing. Clever.

So back to the content - the book allowed me to really climb inside the different star sign's minds to ensure my characters are complex, humanly believable and truly three dimensional.

iHubbub Review Quote: "Every aspiring writer has to have a permanent copy of this little book on their reference shelf. Handy when creating your character and while writing easy to dip in and out to check your character traits are in line."

Lots of little ... that word again ... details which mean so much when forming real people in your books.

As a published writer of fiction both as Penny Jordan and #~Annie Groves, I have found this book of immense help to me in character/profile building. It affords inspirational insights into potential characters. This has allowed me to feel I am really getting inside their minds in the most subtle of ways. The result is characters who are complex, believable and truly three dimensional. IMO this book is a 'must have' on the shelves of any fiction writer who takes their writing seriously. I have recommended it to the members of my own local writers' group.

I know little about astrology but am working on a book and bought this because my characters seem very wooden and one-dimensional. And what a fantastic help it is! Firstly it's a very easy and pleasant read, there's no plethora of technical data or tedious descriptions, but a brief description of each star sign and their dominating element (earth, air, fire and water) then a description of each character type and what makes them tick. It's fascinating even if you aren't writing a book. For instance, virgo people can be discriminating and independant and like to serve others. A virgoean could, for example, tell the difference between a thousand different types of chocolate, they're good at classifying things, they can put it into order and make something useful out of it. With that information it's easy to develop a character that is a real, distinct, individual. The author gives examples in the book.
I thouroughly recommend it both for it's ability to help you create vivid ficitonal characters, but as a good read too!

Highly recommended!
