Survival Kit for Writers Who Don't Write RightE-Book
Just Write It
Can you survive in publishing genre fiction if you don't outline, if you go AWOL from character interviews, if you go cross-eyed at color-keyed plot charts, and if you would rather clean a sewer than write a synopsis?
Whether you're indie, traditional or hybrid, the answer is yes. A veteran bestselling author shares how she's survived and thrived through more than 60 books and 30 years in publishing.
USA Today bestselling author Patricia McLinn, who has taught writing from London to Melbourne, Australia, to Washington, D.C., presents practical, proven, and hard-won tips and tools for those who don't write "right."
