Including hot tips from authors, agents and publishers at the sharp end of the industry, "Wannabe a Writer?" tells you everything you ever wanted to know about the book world - and a few things you didn't...'
I decided to buy this book due to the good reviews i had already seen and obviously a thought of writing my own book. I didnt expect it to be much though, just how to make your characters to come alive, how to plan your book etc... But its much more than that. It tells you the harsh reality of being an author.
What i love most about this book is that its not just how she believe your should write a book but it always has what other writers and journalists do to keep to their deadlines.
The writing qualilty is very chatty, which made it easier for me to read a book like this, it is also very funny, to the point where i was crying from laughter at some points.
After reading this I definitely plan on buying her other books, along with her other writing guide book: Wannabe a writer we've heard of?
So everyone who has an ambition of being a bestselling author pick up your copy of Wannabe a Writer? ASAP. Definately worth the money.
