Make a breakthrough: this book is an interactive and dynamic guide for anyone who wants to write a tightly plotted, unputdownable thriller - and get it published.

WRITE A BESTSELLING THRILLER: STRATEGIES TO GET YOUR BOOK PUBLISHED is a step by step guide to putting together an unputdownable narrative. It takes you on a journey through each component of the thriller, breaking the process down into key factors such as the Hero, the Trigger, the Story, Scenes and Style. The whole of the second part is devoted to the publishing process, while the book features hundreds of pratical exercises. There are diagnostic tests, case studies, practical exercises and Aide Memoire boxes. Each chapter concludes with a reminder of the key points of the chapter (Focus Points) and a round-up of what to expect in the next (Next Step) will whet your appetite for what's coming and how it relates to what you've just read.
