Product description

"The Breakout Novelist" features content from Maass' fiction-writing mainstays, including the recently released "The Fire in Fiction", as well as long-time reader favourites "Writing the Breakout Novel" and "Writing the Breakout Novel Workbook". In addition, the book features updated content from "The Career Novelist", a book no longer available in stores. This updated, rich content is divided into three focused sections to provide fiction writers with a deeper understanding of: core fiction-writing elements (character, setting, description, & plot); more advanced techniques (point of view, voice, and suspense); and, the publishing process (finding an agent, querying, and synopses). Each section includes practical exercises for writers.
