Writing lessons from the crown prince of suspense
For more than five decades, Lawrence Block has written novels. He has produced hard-boiled detective stories, taut suspense thrillers, literature, and erotica, and has succeeded in all these genres because he knows how to grab a reader with an opening line, and how to tighten that grip until the final sentence.
In Writing the Novel: From Plot to Print , Block offers neither tricks nor formulas, but straightforward advice based on the experience that comes with producing more than one hundred books. He explains how to refine an idea, how to study one's chosen genre, and how to use the novel's expansive form to find one's particular voice. And he tells it all in the easy, immediate style that has made his own work so successful.
This ebook features an illustrated biography of Lawrence Block, including rare photos and never-before-seen documents from his personal collection, and a new afterword written by the author.
