9781517041625: Novel Secrets

Over 15 years, Lary Crews taught 4,125 online students how to write their first novel. Now, you can profit from his expertise as a writer and editor. His purpose? To teach you how to write a GOOD self-published novel. What will you learn from Novel Secrets? 1. Since you are no longer dependent on traditional publishers, you can create your own genre. Lary will review the traditional genres and tell you about New Adult, a new genre created by several self-published women. 2. Learn how to find adhesive ideas for your novel. (Ideas other ideas adhere to.) We’ll use the novel idea generator called Internet Movie Data Base (IMDB) and discuss how to save your ideas. 3. You’ll learn to write a secret draft, which allows you to make abundant mistakes, and how to create your leapfrog outline, which, along with storyboards, keeps you on track as you write. 4. We’ll get into the structure of your novel and learn the key to a good plot: the hook, the joyride and the payoff. (Thanks, Aristotle!) 5. You will learn the significance of your first ten pages. When readers look inside your book on Amazon, those ten pages are when they decide to buy your book or not. 6. You’ll learn how to create characters your readers will care about. Your protagonist and antagonist are the most important ones, of course. We’ll even get into how to name your characters. 7. Viewpoint is so important it can affect sales. Lary will simplify it, and teach you the best and most useful viewpoint for your novel. 8. You will get into dialogue, which moves your novel along. We’ll also tackle interior monologue, also known as thinking. 9. Too much description will get in the way of your story. That’s why it should be used sparingly. Lary shows you how. 10. You’ll learn how to write in scenes, like a movie in your mind. Scenes are what keeps your novel moving ahead. 11. Flashbacks slow down novels, but if you plan to use them, you’ll learn how to get into them and back out again. Sometimes a recollection turns out to be better for your book. 12. You will learn how conflict and suspense combine to make your novel work. Readers prefer a satisfying end to your novel. Give it to them, and they will keep buying your books and tell their friends. 13. After your secret draft is done, you’ll check your facts, so readers will buy your lies. Then comes the best part of being a writer, rewriting and revising your novel. Lary will teach you how to cut, edit and improve your book. 14. We’ll discuss promoting your books on social media and beating writer’s block. Lary will also teach you about book signings (he did 77 of them). Lastly, Lary will suggest the ideal book to help you publish your novel on CreateSpace and Kindle. Novel Secrets: How to Write a GOOD Self-Published Novel is a practical, step-by-step manual on how to craft your novel. With Lary’s help, this accessible and streamlined book will empower you to write a terrific novel.

This will be the last book you need to read before you write your bestselling novel. Be sure to check out the Novel Secrets website at http://www.novel-secrets.com
