LEARN HOW TO WRITE GRIPPING CRIME FICTION.

Do you have an idea for a gripping crime novel?
Would you like to know how to plot your book flawlessly?
Do you want to create beautifully crafted characters and nail biting twists?

This book is designed for anyone who wants to write an unputdownable crime novel. Whatever your subgenre, whether Scandi-crime or detective 'cosies', this book is full of inspirational advice, acute insights and practical exercises. The first part of the book establishes the rules of writing crime fiction - from convincing characters to the role of research. The book then covers the practical craft of writing and editing, before explaining in detail how to secure a contract and/or self-publish your work. A comprehensive guide for anyone who wants to be the next Val McDermid or Ian Rankin.
