What the book offers
Devised in four parts (planning, writing, revising and selling) you can really use this book as your guide from start to finish. If you are planning to write a mystery novel this is the only book you need, and the best thing is, it covers all aspects of the mystery genre from cosy right down to fem-jep and legal. There are tons of examples to help you understand the techniques explained and many useful fill out questions to help you brainstorm and develop to the right extent.
First impressions count and my God has Hallie Ephron delivered a good one. Hallie knows exactly how to write in an interactive manner. A lot of books have writers exercises in them, but let’s be honest, how many of us roll our eyes at them and think ‘I’m not gonna do that’? Well not at what Hallie Ephron delivers. Delivered in to the point, organised chapters and need to know information, this is the best book you could find on such a genre.
Who should read this
Well, quite obviously, people who plan to specifically write a mystery novel will want, nay, need this book, specifically beginning writers or those encountering such a genre for the first time. It will also help those mystery writers who want to spend their novel writing journey in a more organised way.
